Track Santa in Real-Time with Chevrolet and OnStar
OnStar members will receive updates on Santa's whereabouts, leveraging NORAD's official Santa location data.
Santa Claus is coming to town and kids everywhere are anxiously waiting. Starting Dec. 24, families can find out exactly where he is with a simple push of the blue OnStar button. Calls can be made anytime between 6 a.m. EST on Dec. 24 through 5 a.m. EST on Dec. 25.
Chevrolet and OnStar, in collaboration with the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), will provide OnStar members with a fun option — track real-time updates on Santa’s whereabouts, using NORAD’s official Santa location data!
NORAD uses sophisticated systems, such as the North Warning Radar System and geo-synchronous satellites with infrared sensors, to follow Santa on his journey around the globe.
“Each year we receive thousands of Santa Update requests,” said Stacey Unold, director of Contact Center Operations supporting Chevrolet. “It’s a fun way for Chevrolet owners to use technology to connect their families with important information about Santa’s journey and spread holiday cheer.”
In the spirit of the season, Chevrolet and OnStar will also donate $1 to the American Red Cross for each Santa Update button push received in the United States. Limitations apply.
