Anything with GPS and wi-fi has the potential to relay information back to a specific source..In the case of your car, it could be vehical speed, GPS cord, etc.
Every modern car has ways of storing such data, even if it cant transmitt it.
The amount it stores and for how long probably varies greatly. I would guess most of it has to do with diagnostic purposes and possibly moment of crash, black box type data. (ie: did airbag deploy, seat belts on, throttle position, brakes/anti-lock/stability controls properly working, etc)
But, for example, "Friend Locator" app, displays my phones location, if its in the car with me, it then tracks and displays my top speed, average speed, route taken, miles driven, number of "incidents" which include rapid accelleration, rapid stop, etc. It displays this instantly to whomever is on the app contact list. So, can it be done - yes very easily.
The big question is, is this (if anything) being transmitted back to dodge?
Very, very, as in 99.9999% unlikely.
What exactly would they do with it?, even if they wanted it?
and there would be such massive amounts of data coming from hundreds of thousands of dodge vehicles on the road at any one given time acrossed the world, it would be incalculatable amounts of data.
As for cameras inside your ar. thats a no-no. Vehicles are an extension of your residence under most state laws and can be considered in legal terms, to be the same as your private domain. A vehicle manf cannot simply put a spy cam in your car prior to purchase without disclosing such..and again, why would they?
You have more to worry about, with your auto insirance wanting this info, incentivizing it with discounts for safe driver devices that monitor your speed, turn siganl use, etc, than you ever are from dodge peeking hbehind the curtain to make sure your burn out was a solid 1/2 a city block long and not any shorter..lol.
