The Cadillac CT6 was announced to feature an all-new, industry-first feature in its full-surround vision, 360-degree camera.
Immediately, we had many questioning privacy, as the cameras either record front and rear, or from other strategic positions for collision and theft evidence should the vehicle tampered with. So, we ask you, is this a new trend of necessary features? Or, is it taboo technology?
We say it’s really no different than purchasing a dash camera to record, though, we can understand some privacy concerns. We spoke to Cadillac directly to clarify how the system works, and who has access to the data. Cadillac responded with:
The system can be fully disabled. You can do that by either turning it off within the CUE system, or by simply removing the SD card in the trunk. In regards to privacy, do note that the system is completely separate from everything else in the vehicle; the information on that card can only be accessed if you have that card.
Therefore, we say the Cadillac CT6 has its bases covered, and sit on the side of this being a very useful addition to the sedan. Plus, the bird’s eye view for parking is always welcome in tight parking situations.
