Anyone here have a cell phone? Ever used Google as a search engine?
You can still get the benefit of both worlds. Simply connect the fuse powering the modem when you need an update and pull the fuse once complete.You're on the internet.
It's kinda too late for privacy. I don't like it, but I am enjoying the tech and the wonderful features that come from it.
That modem in the truck can perform a TSB in the driveway and I don't have to deal with the dealership.
I appreciate your inputs and reading your point of view (POV) on this - and also agree there is nothing wrong with you doing this. I feel this forum is a great place to read other people's opinions and see their POV articulated. It is also a great place to have a civil discussion on these differing POV's. Who would have thought privacy issues and truck systems would be so intertwined?I'm simply suggesting a way to make collection more difficult. Nothing wrong with that IMHO...
Feds- "ahh ha! He's driving to the store and according to, our own patriot act and invading his privacy, he bought milk AND bread!?"
Do you use the internet? Do you buy anything online? Do you use a credit card? Do you use a cellphone or gps?
I disconnected my vehicle over a year ago because I did not like the fact that Journeys were being recorded even when I explicitly had the setting in the app turned off. Apparently, the Ford Pass app was updated around May of this year to remove the Journey feature. Regardless, I do know that the same data points are pushed out from the modem into the cloud. I guess Ford just updated the app so it can't see Journeys anymore that are stored in the cloud.My Ford Pass app doesn't have a Journey tile - it did before, it is gone now.
The Connect Services tile has no services inside of it.
