Fellow Frontiacs, there is a Trojan Horse in your truck. My new Fronty is equipped with an Event Data Recorder better known as the "Black Box." Similar to aviation black boxes, the Fronty device records crash specific data of the vehicle for purposes of post crash analysis. Vehicle speed, brake application, steering angle, air bag performance, and seat belt usage are some of the recorded data. Automotive black boxes are not uncommon and I hear that GM is a leader in installing them in their vehicles.
LE can download data from the black box in the investigation of an accident. I don't see how this is consistent with the 4th Amendment but is can happen. In civil cases, crash data apparantly is Discoverable. Are there any legal Frontiacs that can weigh in on this?
Here is the rub: You are not obligated to keep the black box hooked up. Nissan service will do the unhook but it will cost a service charge. Has anyone done this at Nissan or decoupled the black box themselves?
