Vehicle Details: Chrysler Uconnect®
Making driving better every day

The award-winning Chrysler Uconnect® in-vehicle infotainment system pairs physical controls with a beautiful and easy-to-read touchscreen. Intuitive operation and voice command activation for certain features make it easy to adjust everything you want while maintaining your focus on the road, so your daily commute is safer and more enjoyable.

“You'll find the display area to be incredibly easy to navigate,” said Lindsay Martell from Autotrader.com. “Seven menu icons display a whole slew of options, including media, nav, phone and your favorite apps. These icons stay housed at the bottom of the screen at all times, making it a super simple way to access your digital stuff without spending a lot of time hunting down your faves.”

Uconnect® lets you adjust the temperature of the cabin, provides navigation, integrates with your favorite smart devices, and keeps you connected to family and friends. It also makes it easier than ever to enjoy your favorite media while driving. You can choose from several streaming music services, play tunes from your paired smart device or plug a music player into the USB port. SiriusXM Satellite Radio is also available, giving you a huge variety of music from which to choose.

Eminently useful while you are driving, Uconnect® can even lend a hand when you aren’t driving. One of the features people like most is the ability to lock your car door remotely, no matter how far away you are. New features – like a drag-and-drop menu bar you can use to customize the screen, Siri Eyes Free, and a Do Not Disturb function that can automatically send a message to callers to prevent driver distraction – enhance the versatility and functionality of the Uconnect® system further.

With the redesigned Uconnect® Access app, your smartphone becomes part of your driving experience. Using the app, you can do things like remotely start your vehicle, lock/unlock doors (as mentioned), and stream Internet radio to the car; new services, coming soon, include Send Destination to Vehicle and Find Vehicle.

The system also now has the ability to provide a Monthly Vehicle Health Report. You may also receive a Vehicle Health Alert if the system detects an issue that needs your attention. In addition to keeping an eye on vehicle health, it also looks out for your safety, providing you with an easy way to contact emergency services if you are ever in need.
