Not into "do it yourself" car installations? No problem. With a prepaid InstallCard, you can have your new OnStar mirror installed by any professional who's a member of the InstallerNet Network — which boasts more than 1,500 members across the country. You'll get all the benefits of buying your gear from Crutchfield, plus the time savings and peace of mind that come with professional installation.

Note: InstallCard uses a network of independent contractors who are unaffiliated with Crutchfield, and we are unable to evaluate each individual contractor.

How does it work?

Simple. First, enter your zip code to see if there's an InstallCard installer in your area (if you don't see an installer listed, you may wish to call InstallerNet at the number listed below the zip code field. New installers are added to the network frequently, so there may be options available for you that aren't yet listed online). Then, just add this card to your online shopping cart, and proceed through checkout as usual. When you receive the card from us, visit, enter the unique InstallCard number on the back of the card, and schedule your installation with the local shop.


When you arrive for your appointment at your local stereo shop, just hand over the InstallCard, along with the OnStar mirror you've purchased and your Crutchfield invoice (it will be included in the box with your order), and your installation begins. This card covers the removal of your factory mirror and a professional installation of your OnStar mirror.

You can feel confident about the quality of work since every installer on the InstallerNet Network has at least two years' experience and is MECP (Mobile Electronics Certified Professional) certified. InstallerNet feels so strongly about the expertise of their installers that they will warranty the labor of your installation for the life of your vehicle.

What does this card cover?

With this InstallCard, the professional installer will install your new OnStar mirror. Be sure to read the Details below to see what's covered. Please call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 if you have any questions.

Important Note: Install Cards are not eligible for refunds once installation work is performed.

  • If equipment is determined to be defective during the process of the installation or immediately after while still at the install shop, the installer will swap in its replacement when it arrives at no charge.
  • If the Manufacturer's product becomes defective sometime after the initial installation, and it is determined that the malfunction is not caused by the installation, then the installer will replace the defective unit with a new unit supplied by the customer, and the customer will be responsible for an R&R (removal and reinstallation) charge which will not exceed 50% of the original installation charge.
  • If the customer chooses to remove non-defective equipment (swapping for a different brand, for example), Installer Net will charge for a completely new installation.

Product Highlights:

  • prepaid installation of OnStar mirror at your choice of more than 1,500 professional stereo shops
  • InstallCard services are currently available in all 50 states and Puerto Rico; we cannot ship InstallCards outside these areas.

  • Important note: This installation does not cover modifications to your vehicle. If modifications are required, you may be charged extra for parts and labor at the time of installation. Your installer will inform you of any additional charges before performing the work, so you can approve the charges.

This was purchased with an aftermarket automobile part. The website on the card doesn't exist anymore. The number led to an operator who tried to get a local installer. First one didn't call back. Second one worked out.

Pros: Cost is very reasonable. Reduced hassle and guaranteed results

Cons: Vendor a little hard to contact Process takes a little while. Have patience

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It was so easy to do and was so pleased it took only afew minutes

Pros: So easy

Cons: none


Anonymous from South Jersey on 6/19/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The installer I contacted was rude and unfriendly. The mirror did not work properly once he was done because he failed to connect the backup battery source. This caused the mirror to display an error symbol which was diagnosed by the Onstar operator correctly. However, the installer kept telling me that he installed it correctly and I refused to leave until it was done right.

Pros: I got a good price to have this installed for what I did.

Cons: Installer was not very accomodating and was initially ignoring my complaints.

Great Service

William E. from San Benito, Texas on 6/16/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The unit works great. My customer bought a '14 Honda CR-V, and specifically asked about getting OnStar installed on their vehicle. I had heard that it was possible, so I found out about the Crutchfield website. I ordered the parts, and the representatives there were very helpful. They even followed-up to make sure I had ordered the correct parts (I hadn't). After recieving the parts and the install card, the rest went smoothly. The installer was very friendly and helpful. After all was said and done, My customer was very happy. Now that I know how quick and painless the procedure is, I can offer it again to my clients.



Buy with caution

CB from Redding, CA on 4/27/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have had my OnStar mirror and install card for about three weeks but as of yet I have been UNABLE to contact anyone to activate the install card and get my device installed. The website you are directed to on the card shows serious security issues, i entered it anyhow and it took men to a completely different website. No one answers at the 800 # and Crutchfield says they just sell the item they don't service it. Looks like I am screwed out of the cost.

Pros: None so far

Cons: Read my review.

Crutchfield response on 5/1/2014 The customer was able to get the card activated for installation.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installer in League City was super. Would recommend.

Pros: Very conscientious.

Cons: None.

Install was great

KenS from Clarkston,MI on 3/24/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The installer did a fantastic job. The only thing was they wanted antother $25 for a bracket to put the Onstar FMV unit in. I called Crutchfield and I was told I didn't need another bracket. I'm not sure if the installer just wanted more money or if the advisor was not telling me the correct information.

Frank C from Chicago, IL on 12/21/2011

Great concept, friendly customer service, thanks Crutchfield!

Pros: The InstallCard process was really easy. I was able to go online and schedule an appointment with a local installer. The installation came out great and the installer was a pro!

Cons: I wish I knew about it when i bought my amplifier.


Joe from Metropolis, Illinois on 9/29/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased the OnStar Install Card. The person chosen by the InstallCard to install the OnStar product had never installed this product before in his life and did not know how to install it. Took all day and when it was turned on, it did not work. Took another day for the person to find out he had not plugged in the battery on the product. I think the person installing should not be a novice and be well trained in the product they are installing.



Crutchfield Messed Up

Doug T from Reno Nv on 9/4/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

No installers were available in the Reno Area. Crutchfield, you should have checked installer availability before you sold the OnStar unit.




Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: With this InstallCard (832-1003) a professional installer will install the aftermarket OnStar FMV into your vehicle. Installation includes securing the mirror to the windshield using the existing mounting tab on the windshield, or by applying an aftermarket adapter tab included in the package. Also includes wiring it to the vehicle ground, ignition, and accessory connections. Wires will be hidden and routed through the vehicle's interior pillar or headliner. Some units will require additional mounting adapter (sold separately).

Disclaimer: This InstallCard covers the basic installation of the OnStar FMV unit. Any additional parts and labor will be determined before the install is completed and billed separately to you. Other restrictions:

  • Some vehicle mirrors have functionality (garage door opener, lights, sensors, etc) that may be lost if the mirror is replaced. It is not the installer's responsibility to replace those features.
  • Some vehicles will require mounting a new mounting tab or using an adapter to mount to the original tab which is sold separately.
  • Installation is not recommended on vehicles with non-OEM quality windshields, or windshields older than ten years.
  • Mirror cannot be mounted in certain vehicles due to windshield angle, windshield height, or in vehicles where safety equipment or displays (airbag, rearview cameras) would require removal.
