Right on Cue: The 2017 Cadillac Escalade's dashboard tech

Cars
[MUSIC] We're here in the 2017 Cadillac Escalade having a look at its CUE Infotainment system. And one of the first things you'll notice is that it is a very Dark interface. And its [UNKNOWN] is basically a [UNKNOWN] version of Chevrolet's mylink infotainment but it's been extensively redesigned to fit better into Cadillac's glossy black desk board. Which means that it had to get a whole lot darker. So, as my hand approaches the screen, you'll notice the first feature and that is a proximity sensor that notices when my hand is approaching and pops up more information on screen. That way I can have a nice, uncluttered interface while I'm navigating and driving, but still have access to these menus and controls when I'm ready tp reach them. Now if we pop back to the home screen you'll see that we have a selection of various large icons that take you to the various parts of the cue interface. Shortcuts, and things like your audio source, your hands free calling and navigation. And if we pop back into the map for a second, you'll see that that a lot of these icons are mirrored along the top. See a very quick exit the things like your audio source or hands free calling from anywhere in the interface. Now if we pop into the audio menu we'll see that here is where we control things like satellite and terrestrial radio. It's also where we have access to our media sources, including Bluetooth hands-free calling and a selection of USB ports around the cabin. At the bottom of the screen, you'll see what look like shortcuts to radio stations. And they are, but these shortcuts can also be assigned to other parts of the interface. For example you can put an address in or your favorite restaurant to quickly navigate to them. Or go back to the home screen and add a shortcut to any of those icons to get very quick access to things like the camera or apps. Back to home and into navigation. And we're ready to search for destination. We do have voice search so we are able to input and address something like this. Say a command or say help. Find address. Say the address, including city and state, starting with the house number if available. 1000 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, California. [MUSIC] 1000 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, California. Is that correct? Yes. When it is safe to do so, look to the radio display to complete your selection. [MUSIC] So the system does allow you to input an address in one fell swoop, but it is a little bit slow in recognizing it. It did ask me to confirm on screen where I was going. Finally Android Auto and Apple Car Play are standard. Here in the home screen is where the Android icon lives, if I plugged an iPhone in instead of my Android phone, that would be where the Apple Car play Would replace it. But pop into here there is the Android Auto menu complete with its own navigation and audio app sources right here. So if you don't like Cadillac Cue you can pop into here and bring your own tech. If you do like Cadillac CUE, you can get back to it very quickly like this. The Escalade is equipped with Cadillac's around view camera. It only works when the car is on, so I'm gonna start it up real quick. [SOUND] You tap the Camera button right there and you get an around view of the vehicle, which is really good when you're trying to squeeze into a tight parking spot, as well as a front Or a rearview of what's going on around the vehicle. Those are gonna tie in nicely with Cadillac's automatic parallel parking system, where at the touch of a button, you can have the vehicle automatically parallel or perpendicularly park itself. Here in this menu, you can choose which side and what type of parking you want to do. The last escalate specific menu is gonna be the video menu here. That's going to put you in control of the real see entertainment system that drop down from the roof out back. You can need a pop up dvd in here up front plug in a usb drives that's a port video media or even in HD in my video source. To display it from that rear screen. You can control it from the front display but there are also redundant controls out back if you want to put the kids in control. That has been our walk-thru for the Q System for the 2017 Cadillac Escalade. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
