OnStar FMV

Once exclusive to cars from General Motors, OnStar now works with most cars built after 1981, from any manufacturer. Replace your rearview mirror with OnStar FMV (For My Vehicle), and you can make hands-free calls or talk to a live person at the press of a button. Ask, "Where's the nearest pizza joint?" and the operator will send turn-by-turn voice directions. If your car's been stolen, OnStar can use GPS to track it. And if you've been in an accident and are unable to call 911, a built-in accelerometer automatically detects the crash and sends emergency responders to your location. At $19 to $29 a month, an OnStar subscription isn't cheap, but the peace of mind it brings can be priceless.

$299, plus fees for installation, subscriptions and hands-free minutes, onstar.com/fmv
