I have the 2010 SRX, and would LOVE for them to make the Onstar Link reverse compatible for this model. Currently it is only available for 2011 and forward.

For months I have heard lots of rumors about them working to make it compatible on the 2010, and possibly 2009 models . . can anyone confirm this or give any more information? I contacted them and they simply say that they have no information on this, at this time.

Sorry to say all data I read about 3 months ago said "......it would only work a few of the features and will not be offered as such. Software/hardware is different."
In 2011, Onstar went to Version 9.0

but anything can happen!

When you go to app store it says it will work with some 2010 and 2011 models...

Gotta ask, what is Reverse Compatible?

Reverse Compatible = Backwards Compatible = works on older models...

I guess I wasn't clear with my question, I understand reverse compatible, but, what is the advantage?

From the horses mouth. 2010 SRX is NOT compatible.

The advantage is that for those of us who own a 2010 SRX, we can not currently use the OnsTar mobile app which allows you to unlock your doors, start your car, and lots more directly from your smart phone. The OnStar mobile app is only available for 2011 models and forward, for the SRX.

Therefore, the advantage would be, if it became backwards compatible, that it would then work for those of us who own a 2010 SRX.
