    PostCadillac News: 2013 Cadillac XTS to come standard with iPad

    Filed under: Car Buying, Sedan, Technology, Cadillac, Luxury

    If you read the owner's manual of your car you'd begin to realize how much of your own vehicle you didn't know about. If it's a car made within the past few years, then the owner's manual covering the dirty bits will be joined by an even thicker manual that covers just the infotainment system. Cadillac, however, has a better way for buyers to learn the CUE-powered mysteries of the $44,995 XTS: give owners an iPad with the car, loaded with tutorials on how to get the most out of the Cadillac User Experience system.

    Yes, when the Hyundai Equus was introduced it came with an iPad installed with a multimedia version of its owner's manual. Based on Wired's discussion with Cadillac, however, this is much wider implementation, with each Cadillac dealer required to have two "certified technology experts" on duty, plus a CUE call center for owners, an online media team looks for CUE questions to answer, and a mobile CUE specialist who makes house calls. The point seems to be that this isn't about getting an iPad with your car, it's about understanding ever tech thing your car can do. And if you don't know how to access the full power of your XTS, it will only be because you don't want to.

    Official reaction from TTAC Bloggerland.....

    Not necessarily that I agree with its points, but it's all been covered in other threads. Throwing in a free iPad is a nice touch, but I'm not sure how many of the XTS buyers will really be able to take advantage of the iPad's capabilities. I'd rather see the iPad money being put to good use somewhere else on the car, with the iPad manual available to those who own said tablet.

    I'm still kind of sad that Hyundai is making a car that's more like a Cadillac than what Cadillac makes ;( Cadillac giving away iPads like Hyundai does highlights this unfortunate turn of events.....

    Oh well, there are enough used DTSes out there to last us until 2015 at least.
