    Cadillac Working On An Update For CUE

    Stop me if you heard this before. An automaker introduces a new and shiny infotainment system that uses a large screen, capacitive touchscreen and buttons, fancy graphics, and number of other features. Reviewers and people who buy said vehicles with the new infotainment system complain the system is too slow and laggy, thus prompting the automaker to issue an update. Ford is one of those automakers that has and is still going through this process and will soon be joined by Cadillac with their CUE system.

    According to Wired Autopia, Cadillac will launch an update to CUE that will improve the haptic feedback of both the touchscreen controls and the capacitive buttons on the center stack.

    “We’re hearing about our haptics and the desire for quicker responses. And we’re making a modification that will be released sometime later this year,” said CUE’s design manager Jeff Massimilla.

    The update will be done at Cadillac dealers, even though models equipped with CUE do have an embedded data connection.

    “The Cadillac customer expects the dealership to do the work,” said Massimilla.

    Until the head unit includes a CD slot, I don't give a $h! if Cadillac attempts to make their virtual controls slightly less user-unfriendly.
