What Are The Features of CUE System?

As mentioned, the Cadillac CUE system has a lot of features that can really make your life as a driver a lot easier. Here’s a rundown of what your CUE system can do for you.

Voice Command

When driving it is important to have your eyes forward and your hands on the wheel at all times. This is why using your phone while driving is a big no-no. Thankfully, your CUE system has voice command and voice recognition so you can use your system for navigation, or even use your phone hands free. The system can tell the difference between multiplee voices so it knows if you are giving it a command or if the kids at the back are simply asking for a drivethru on the way back home. The system is equipped with dual microphones to ensure that your voice commands are heard correctly. You simply need to speak normally as you would during a conversion to get directions, make phone calls, or ask your CUE system to play music without ever having to lift your hands off the wheel, or your eyes off the road.

Personalized Settings

Your CUE system was designed for ease of use out of the box. However, you can still customize and personalize it to suit your needs. If you have a HUD or Heads-Up Display equipped, you can customize it to show driving alerts like road conditions or potential hazards. The system is also intuitive enough that it learns your preferred routes and favorite destinations and offers you tips and suggestions on better routes if your usual route is congested. And just like your smartphone, your CUE system can also save your favorite radio stations, songs, or places of interest so you can have it available right from the get go.


Staying connected to your social circle and accessing information in real-time is the norm these days and the CUE system is no exception. With 4G LTE built-in Wi-Fi hot spot, you can connect to the internet and browse the collection app store to download your favorite apps directly to your CUE system. You can even update your CUE system remotely making it convenient to do any time or anywhere. You can also get access to your favorite media and apps from your smartphone with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Cadillac CUE system really is an amazing car system that makes any driver’s life easier. And with OTA or Over The Air updates, you don’t need to worry about how to update your CUE system. Simply have it connect via 4G LTE and it does it in the background without you having to do anything. This ensures up to date software that is optimized for a great user experience.
