Mystery box mounted to windshield

Anyone know what this black box is? It is mounted to the windshield on the passengers side.
It a 2009 ZR1.

Thanks
Steve

Re: Mystery box mounted to windshield

It's also on the Z06, I thought it was part of the OnStar and sat radio. However I found out when a scraped my passenger side mirror that not all mirrors were the same. It seems that GM put the radio antenna it the passenger side mirror hence the $700.00 price tag on the passenger side mirror.

Thanks Bruno,
I googled it and there were lots of thoughts on various forums. The most popular response was that it is for Onstar.

That's what the NTSB will be looking for at the scene of the crash. They can use it to determine if the driver still had their foot to the floor at the time of the crash or if they chickened out and tried to use the brakes.
