    XTS/CUE review on Engadget [video]

    Cadillac CUE makes its way to XTS, navigates with ease in NYC (hands-on)

    Now, much of this may seem familiar -- we took a peek at CUE at last year's CTIA -- but this is the first time that we've actually had a chance to take the tech for a spin in a drivable 2013 Cadillac XTS, and New York City seems like the perfect venue for pushing the system to its limits. Inputting a destination is as simple as typing an address into Google Maps (though CUE uses a proprietary maps app based onNAVTEQ's database). As we drove from our office near Union Square to the Financial District, the car let us know when we were cutting things a bit too close, as seat vibrations alerted us to obstacles on either side. All the while, adjusting music and climate was simple as can be, and HUD-based directions gave us little excuse to look away from the busy road. After arriving at our destination, we slid on over to the passenger seat to film the action while an expert drove. If a new Caddy is in your future, you should be able to pick up a CUE-equipped car within the next few weeks. For now, you can jump past the break for a front-seat look as we cruise on through the 212.

    make sure to see the very end of the video for some back up camera footage ... i like how the grid bends with your steering angle and ensures you that you are turning correctly

    I think most of the GM nav systems already do this. At least the Buick, STS, CTS, and SRX I've driven did that. Even the ones with the backup screen in the rear view mirror do this as well.
