NHTSA May Mandate That New Cars Broadcast Location, Direction and Speed
#1
Quote:(CNSNews.com) - Before the end of this year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will decide whether or not to begin the rulemaking process to mandate that newly manufactured cars include what is being called “vehicle-to-vehicle” (V2V) communications technology that constantly broadcasts via radio wave the car’s location, direction, speed and, possibly, even the number of passengers it is carrying.

Yes, I'm sure that they have no plans to spy on our movements. They would never do anything like that.

Just be careful with those firmware updates you get on your new truck.

LOL....it's probably already there. If the truck can tell you you need a firmware update, it's got to be communicating with something for it to know.

Just unplug it, pull the fuse or remove it...it's a stand alone module.
There's a bunch of forumns explaining how to do it on any make and model.

One of the first things I did to my truck was diconnect OnStar.

BTW, your XM radio is a seperate module.

I'm sure that'll work up until it's actually required then it'll be designed that the car won't start without it being present, and it'll be a crime to interfere with it's transmission.
