Cadillac CUE

An information and entertainment "in-vehicle infotainment" system that's offered with select Cadillac vehicles such as the 2013 Cadillac XTS and ATS sedans as well as the SRX crossover.  CUE stands for the Cadillac User Experience and is designed to provide Cadillac drivers with a complete suite of infotainment, navigation and communication tools for keeping the driver connected.

The CUE system offers natural voice recognition as well as several unique features, including proximity sensing and tactile feedback via a haptic touchscreen, and delivers its information content in an 8-inch touch screen above the instrument panel as well as a 12.3-inch LCD gauge cluster above the steering wheel that features up to four different layouts.  Additional features include integration with mobile smartphones via Bluetooth technology, the ability to have text messages read to the driver, 3D GPS navigation and seamless connectivity with OnStar’s suite of services.

CUE competes in the nascent in-vehicle infotainment category with the likes of Ford’s SYNC, Toyota's Entune, Kia Motors' UVO and Fiat’s Blue&Me offerings.  While many of these systems are powered by Intel’s Atom processor and Microsoft’s Windows Embedded Automotive 7 platform, Cadillac has taken a different approach with its Linux-based CUE system.
