Does?

FIAT requires ability to suck up personal data for fusebox card. Do you guys drive cars that steal all of your information so they can sell to insurance and other companies? What's the most privacy friendly technological car that doesn't suck up your data?

    I was concerned when you posted this so I went outside and checked all around. I can not find this device. Can you tell me where it might be located on a 1947 Fordson 2N tractor?

    My new Honda has never asked me to sign into anything for any reason. It has no cellular or satellite, only AM/FM. There's this one Honda app that the salesman told me to install but from what I can tell it doesn't seem to connect to the car in any way.
    Maybe I've overlooked something, but if I have it can't be that important since I've been driving well over a year without noticing or interacting with it.

      Oh it also has Bluetooth, obviously. Forgot to mention.

      That's because it has a VIN and serial number.
      This is the entire point.

      You don't need to sign in.
      The cars are configured in secret to automatically upload data via manufacturer agreements with telecommunication services to send their telemetry/audio/video data to their servers and log it all according to your VIN/Serial#

      If you think you're based because you penetrate your car with an aux cable for your music, that's not enough. Even if you don't pair anything the cars have their own separate data recording devices and their own networking to communicate and spy on you regardless.

      Just like how cars with satellite internet already have it built in but not activated, and newer cars meme on you with renting heated seats, the spying is done by default. No user interaction required.

        Pretty sure cars have had those things for quite some time now.
        >The cars are configured in secret to automatically upload data via manufacturer agreements with telecommunication services to send their telemetry/audio/video data to their servers
        Again, no cellular or satellite.

          Kek, of course.
          They're not new, the point is they are used as identifiers in the database with or without a user signing in.
          >Again, no cellular or satellite.
          Sure, if you actually have an older car before they started offering rental Wi-Fi/etc.
          Many do though.

          And even on cars without "GPS" advertised, it's not uncommon for them to actually still have GPS tracking via the orbital satellites. GPS is built into your phones it easily fits in a car and costs nothing. The only expensive thing is satellite uplinks, and those are avoided by simply logging GPS generated positional data and uploading that via cellular networks.
          This kind of data is regularly used to gauge how fast you drive, where you go, where you park at night, proximity to high crime areas, among other things.
          It'll be uploaded to the "cloud" or "service" without a sign in, and be tied to the vehicle, not a user.

          Man I'm not even a schizo but I wouldn't trust these companies to not slip something in there that phones home without your knowledge, either through cellular or unsecured wifi.
          We're at that level of trust when it comes to business.

      Those cars will eventually rot, parts will not be manufactured anymore, etc. A paradigm shift needs to happen

        Yep, just delaying the inevitable. You'll be forced to upgrade soon enough. How many 80s cars do you see on the roads today? Even 90s are getting rare.

          1960's are the way to go. Many after-market parts made by many 3rd party companies and many online communities. I have more support for my 1947 tractor than I do for my 2000 truck.

    I still burn MP3 CDs for my 12 year-old car. When the time comes to replace it, I'll try to get something that also predates this tech, or can be physically disabled/removed.

    2000s or early 2010s Toyotas are good. My 2013 Tacoma doesn't have any wifi or lte uplink to Toyota at least, it probably still collects data but can't send it out unless it goes to the dealership for maintenance (maybe).

    I don't really care what this idiot has to say about anything. As long as he keeps pumping out good FUTA products like the stupid keyboard he can rant all he wants about whatever garbage each day.
