General-motors-onstar protocol

Protocol used to to fetch vehicle telematics data via General Motors OnStar Data Services API.
flespi parses the General-motors-onstar protocol messages into a JSON object with the fields listed below in the Parameters tab.

The channel will expect HTTP POST requests with payload data in GM OnStar protocol format.

To start receiving vehicle data from the GM OnStar telematics system perform the following steps:

1. Create a channel of ‘general-motors-onstar’ protocol. Contact your GM manager and provide them with a channel URI, so that they configure the Target URL where GM will be pushing vehicle data to.

Important note: In order for commands to General Motors OnStar devices to work properly, there must be only one ‘general-motors-onstar’ channel per flespi account. 

2. Provide GM with the flespi outbound IP address 185.213.2.10, so that they whitelist it for inbound requests from the flespi platform to GM.

3. Once you have received the API credentials from GM, paste them into the Credentials section of the channel configuration on the Edit tab:

gm onstar protocol credentials

4. Create General Motors OnStar devices in flespi for each vehicle that you want to receive telemetry for and use vehicle VIN as ident

create general motors onstar device

5. Execute the “provision_device” command (Commands & Settings tab) for each device to Opt In the device in GM for the listed services:

send provision command to general motors onstar device

As soon as the command is executed successfully, the GM platform will start sending the vehicle telemetry data to the channel. You can see the incoming messages on the Logs & Messages tab.
