What is Uconnect?

Uconnect is the in-car technology used in Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram cars, trucks and SUVs. It comprises all things entertainment, phone, and navigation behind the wheel. There are several different Uconnect systems, which are indicated by a three-character code that will be on the vehicle's sticker on our lot. You can read more about those codes and variances here.

Convenience and Accessibility

Uconnect includes the Access app, which allows you to do things such as remote lock your door or start your engine from hundreds of miles away. You can also use your smartphone to find your car in a busy parking lot or in crowded city streets, as well as send points of interest to your navigation system to get route options and driving times.

Track Vehicle Condition

Uconnect also means you'll be able to track the health of your vehicle via Monthly Vehicle Health Reports. If there is an issue before your monthly report, you can get Vehicle Health Alerts keying you into the issue. Similarly, you can get vehicle performance reports. An added bonus is simplified emergency assistance when disaster strikes on the road.

Safety and Connection

Use Uconnect to text via voice so you can keep both hands on the wheel, and keep your passengers connected via the 3G Wi-Fi Hotspot.
