The Uconnect app is not doing the tracking. It just gives you an interface to the sections of the SiriusXM system that are user accessible. The Uconnect system in the truck regularly calls home to report location and other information. It is always on to receive calls from the mothership. That never turns off, only your access to the features if you don't pay for the service.After I installed the Uconnect app, thinking it was harmless stuff like unlocking the doors, I started going through the menus and found the family drive thing. Had to Google it to understand what it does.
We can both throw around IT credentials, bro. I was an information systems security officer for the Army. The "darkweb" is a real thing. Scary too!
