    1. You can't
    2. Only displays if CUE is turned off

    Re: CUE Home Screen

    all you can do is touch the time in the corner and the clock will appear with a navigation bar at bottom but that will go away after a minute leaving only the clock

    Re: CUE Home Screen

    Although I would love to see some customisation options for CUE, I can see why they don't exist. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing, as they say, and trying to support the legions of Caddy owners who accidentally screwed up their CUE system and want tech support, is probably not appealing to GM.

    That said, maybe a middle-ground option where you could ask the dealer to make modifications to CUE would be an option?

    Re: CUE Home Screen

    I'm very excited about the prospect that CUE is upgradable via USB sticks!
    It's great to think that any minor/major problems can potentially be fixed with a quick patch.
    I'm sure there's some tech savvy owner out there who can hack and customize.

    I generally agree. But by then, the consumer electronics industry will be even more advanced, and CUE will seem antiquated. There is no way a proprietary auto company platform can keep up. The whole premise is flawed. Maybe something like CloudCar is the answer, maybe not. I'm no futurist, who knows. :-)

    Re: CUE Home Screen

    All of my needs are on my phone. All I need from CUE or any car going forward is to be a handsfree interface for my phone. As the phone manufactures battle for supremacy the auto industry will always fall behind and take calculated risks on how their equipment does or does not sync with phones. I do not and will never own an Iphone so I lose interface options on this and other cars. CUE for now is adequate and will improve. Until Google Maps and all it benefits are my in car nav I will remain disappointed. In general I would just like the CUE screen and voice recognition be an extension of my phone and its tools and apps.

    this is truth, but Caddy could do this if they get a little brave and open up the platform, let people write apps and allow them to be side loaded but keep it in a sandbox (ie, not allowing hacks and apps access vehicle systems) and the community will provide a plethora of fun things to do.

    as far as support goes, I've seen other platforms support open products by resetting the system to a known configuration, the conversation would be something like:

    Cueser: "my flosamflip doesn't work when I hit the icon"

    Cue support: "Sorry to hear that, lets check out the flosamflip, first go to settings and restore factory defaults....done OK try the flosamflip.....it works, good, probably a problem with the app you just installed contact them for assistance, and feel free to call us back if you have any other issues"

    or:

    "the flosamflip still doesn't work, OK let take the steps to get you fixed"......

    could be done

    I guess what people must keep in mind is that not everyone has a smartphone (or has need for one), so CUE has to be more than just an extension of those phones to a certain degree. The fact that you can get weather and traffic updates etc, through the NAV system is pretty nice for those people that don't have those phones. That being said, I love the fact that my IPHONE can be so readily adaptable to this CUE system and look forward to additional apps that improve my driving experience.

    Re: CUE Home Screen

    It's funny, I've had my ATS for three weeks now and about the only thing that I really miss about my CTS, other than the ventilated seats, is the analog, in your face, always on clock !!
    As much as the geek side of me loves the CUE system, sometime retro does work

    Just have the big analog clock on the CUE screen. I don't think you can't make it default but just touch the clock icon after the car is running. The other icons will fade away in a few seconds.
