Automakers Concerned About Google Data-Mining Us In The Car

Unless you live a very isolated, disconnected existence, you’re probably leaving quite the trail for Google. Are you ready to leave more of a trail about how you stay connected in your car? Of course we already do drive around with GPS-tagging, server-connecting smartphones in our vehicles.


Vehicle data storage and sharing is already an issue – before Google started mining your car. Try Bluetooth on your next rental car and see your private contacts be uploaded to the car and left there! This will only get worse, and Google’s Android Auto does not really care – all phones used in the car get treated equally open and shared. I wonder if Ford’s SDL has the same issues?
