A new source of evidence for BFMV investigations

I hope you're ready to retrieve DME from another type of recorder. GM recently announced that the new Corvette will feature on-board video/data recording as part of a performance data recorder and navigation system package that is a $1,795 add-on to the $53,995 base price of the Corvette.

In the future, when investigation a burglary/theft from a motor vehicle, or a vehicle theft, you may be asked to download this data / video from the car.

"The system was developed with Cosworth, the British motorsports-engineering company that supplies the Corvette Racing team’s data and telemetry systems. It has a SD-card slot in the glove box – which locks on Valet Mode -- for recording and transferring video and vehicle data. An 8-gigabyte card can record approximately 200 minutes of driving time."

It looks like the owner will have to have the data card in the slot to record. So our job is easy, just swap out the cards.
