    What is the coolest feature of CUE?

    I am picking up my 2013 SRX at the end of the week. I had found a really good deal on a 2012 Premium SRX, but I opted for the Lux 2013 so that I could have the CUE system.

    I had a very quick (20 second) show from the salesman . . . but I want to know what everyones personal favorite thing about CUE? Is there something you really really like that it does ? Or something that just has that coolness factor?

    This is a great way for me to see some of the nice things in CUE. The write about what CUE is and what it does on the Cadillac website (And many other sites) is very minimal. .

    Also: I have an iphone. Does it do anything regarding texts,emails? Facebook? Twitter? (If I recall the Ford system does all of these? curious if CUE touches them)

    Re: What is the coolest feature of CUE?

    The goal for CUE was to bring the tablet/smartphone like intuitive controls to a vehicle infotainment system. Since the update, iPhone users get Siri pass thru, but it is still required to hold the "home" button. With this feature, you are able to ask Siri to "read my messages" and have the option to reply.
    Useful features include:
    Pandora
    Customizable Home Screen and Shortcuts
    Valet Mode
    Capacitive Controls - tap, hold, swipe, pinch, spread.
    Proximity Sensing is cool, but I prefer to have the shortcuts always showing (this can be changed in settings)
    My favorite is the 5-way controller on the steering to reconfigure the DIC, and to search my phonebook/browse playlists, but is almost unnecessary with Natural Voice Recognition.

    Like all software it has its bugs, but Cadillac was aiming for the next best thing, not the better current thing. CUE is all about customization and making the Cadillac YOURS. It deserves a standing ovation in my opinion. Other GM Brands have similar systems, but its not the same. They need something as simple to use in more affordable models for Gen Y. Chevy's Spark and Sonic are the closest and probably have the most features.

    My suggestion is to ask your dealer if they have a CTE or Technology Specialist of some sort and set an appointment to go over the entire system. You can literally spend hours and never learn everything about CUE. Congratulations on your new car!

    Thanks Chris, for the great info!

    I have read that there are rumors that new apps will be available down the road. That would be really cool

    I should be picking up my new SRX on Thursday afternoon. Very excited to learn CUE

    Rumors are just that...rumors. I am surprised they don't already have wifi hotspots built in to Cadillac models. Chevrolet already made it available.

    There is an App Store in there its just not enabled. Just like the SMS Texting app I have on mine that only freakin works with blackberries LOL There is a ton of stuff in there that isnt turned on or completely setup yet, I had a custom Skin on mine for a day before I went back to the classic CUE version.

    How did you get a custom skin on CUE? See no where where this is addressed or accessed...
    longslim and longslim like this.

    Why in hell can't you help the lost souls at GM out a little? What a refreshing page to compare to the one we got.

    I'm guessing that https://developer.gm.com/ has something to do with it

    Actually no None of that will let you change anything native on the unit. It will just let you develop apps off the unit that cant be run on a unit unless signed and released by GM and to my knowledge none have yet? This is 100% custom stuff, I do this for tons of different vehicles...
