Default Re: GM Onstar drops Blackberry

Sadly the computers in the new cars control everything. While installing an LED lamp vs a standard incandescent one I was looking for the signal light flasher and discovered the sound comes from a speaker and the computer controls the lamp. Further looking shows just about every control and indicator is controlled by the same computer.
Wonder how we would get out of a locked car if they had electronic controls and door locks. Use the obsolete Blackberry phone to break the window.
