Also, I think it'll be a great idea to bring a screwdriver w/ you when you purchase to remove the board...You should also go for the coup de gras and put a piece of aluminum foil over the XM antennae just to make sure.
the NEW generation Uconnect has OTA capability and the forums are full of people that have had there sound quality messed up because of a BAD OTA update and FCA wont/cant stop the OTA rollout affecting more and more radios
First off, for a car like the Camaro SS and higher trims, and all Corvettes, take it to a track and pull some serious G's on the turns, and OnStar WILL be calling. It's not only air bag deployment that triggers OnStar calling, it's also the accelerometer reading. It has absolutely, factually happened. Because the accelerometer in the car thinks it's been in an accident when strong enough g forces are pulled in high speed tight cornering maneuvers. Of which the Camaro SS, straight from the factory, is definitely capable of doing.
Besides why should your car communicate with ANYTHING? What is that all about? Why do you encourage that? A car is meant for driving, for transportation. Not to go online and be connected to the web. You get in, you drive. Focus. That's it. End of story. End of arguments. You're done with everything when you get into a car to drive. Turn on the radio or listen to your iPod and that's it.
This notion that cars need to be just as connected as your cell phone is absolutely stupid. It's a trucking car!
And no, I'm not covering my antenna because I like satellite radio. But they can only tell I am listening to them on my car's radio, they can't see vehicle dynamics.

Yeah...that happened because the accelorometer returned a false return of a rear end car accident...you know to call for help in case the driver was incapacitated. that is the only time where on star interrupted, if you have an example of OnStar calling because of lateral Gs...please post it because i've never seen or heard of that. Anyway, all of this connectivity was bound to happen and I don't care that it is happening one way or another, it has zero effect on my life.

Meh, the new Duramax was supposedly "unhackable" - it's not. It did turn a $500 modification into a $4,000 modification but it still can be done.
You don't happen to heed those buy gold commercials that used to run on The Blaze channel, do you?

Would I not creep you out if I told you that we've never met and I live on the other side of the USA from you yet I knew what route you took to work every morning, what Starbucks you stopped at on the way and that you leave your car idling for about six minutes while you ran in every day to grab your coffee?
It's not necessarily about having anything to hide. It's the fact that this every day information about you is accessible if someone was simply interested enough.
You think this is something I just thought about last night? I am in the electronics industry, and I've done my research.

Thing is, again, you can turn your phone/antenna off. You cannot do that with you car.
The transponder board goes.
