Senator Chuck Schumer claims OnStar's new policy is an invasion of privacy. Schumer says the vehicle communication company still tracks customers even after they cancel their subscription and reserves the right to sell that data from former customers.

Schumer is calling on the Federal Trade Commission to investigate the matter, saying the company is engaged in unfair trade practices. OnStar says it notifies customers of the changes and allows them to chose to disconnect the tracking.
