Well, folks this started in the early 80s. Your car's computer stores most driving data, speed, braking, etc, etc. This is not new, however the amount of data logging increases with cell phones, gps units, etc, etc.

Can’t believe nothing is private anymore! I don’t want to know what my car knows about me. Just be careful what you say or do in your car & there’s no problem!

Does anyone have a technical knowledge as to how the car manufacturers are sending the data? They must have some sort of OTA (over the air) transmit and receive capability embedded in the car. Example: OnStar and BlueLink. How does one go about disabling this?

From a legal view I find it interesting that we purchase the car and own it but the manufacturer retains the right to own the data we create using the car. Does this strike anyone as wrong?
