Cadillac Takes Infotainment to the Next Level in 2012

Are you ready for the ultimate personal driving experience, Atlanta car enthusiasts? The Cadillac User Experience (CUE) system is coming soon to the Cadillac XTS and ATS, with ground-breaking levels of customized connectivity. CUE is a complete suite of infotainment, navigation and communication tools designed to keep you fully connected.

The CUE center display is a vivid eight-inch LCD touch screen, with a motorized faceplate at the bottom that hides a 1.8-liter storage area for your phone, garage door opener, sunglasses or anything else you’d want to store away.

The LCD screen features your five most frequently used functions on the top, and up to 60 of your favorites functions like music, addresses, weather and direction maps, phone numbers and more on the bottom of the screen.  It also has iPhone/iPod-like swipe functionality that lets you easily navigate through the system.

In the past, voice commands have fallen short in my opinion. But CUE is equipped with natural voice recognition, which is an industry-first that allows the driver to speak commands in a normal conversation voice instead of having to say specific, monotone commands.

Sound interesting yet? Wait until you hear about my favorite CUE feature: the 12.3-inch reconfigurable LCD gauge cluster that can be customized into one of four screen layouts. The different layouts combine your typical gas and speed gauges with navigation, phone and other entertainment information.
