What Is UConnect®

December 22nd, 2017 by


What is Uconnect® and what exactly does it do? Uconnect® is a platform on new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram models, like the new Jeep Grand Cherokee, that offers features including navigation, entertainment, and much more. The CDJR models that have this advanced technology also have access to hands-free calling and messaging for a safer, connected experience. If you’re looking to enhance your driving experience, learn more about the Uconnect® system in person by taking one of the models equipped with this system for a test drive.

SiriusXM Guardian & UConnect® Access

With over 150 SiriusXM Satellite Radio channels including music, sports, news, comedy, and more, plus the online access, you can stay connected to your vehicle. Other connectivity features include:

  • Start your vehicle and get it warmed up with Remote Vehicle Start
  • Lock/unlock doors remotely
  • Find driving directions and transmit them to your UConnect® touchscreen with Send & Go
  • Locate your parked car with Vehicle Finder
  • Contact emergency personnel with SOS Call
  • Get help with flat tires, lockouts, battery issues, and more with Roadside Assistance Call
  • Find your car with Stolen Vehicle Assistance
  • Drive hands-free and access your favorite apps with the Voice Command feature

All of this is made possible with the available UConnect® app for UConnect® Access. Additionally, the Navigation feature is available when you opt for the UConnect® Navigation package. It provides a 3D generated map and gives turn-by-turn directions so you can travel through Maple Creek and Rosetown with ease. And when combined with SiriusXM® Traffic Plus and Travel Link, you can see traffic and weather reports.

Unlimited 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot

Not only does your UConnect® system serve as a means of staying in touch with your Jeep Grand Cherokee or Ram 1500, but it also allows you to convert your vehicle into a home office or enhanced entertainment center with the available Wi-Fi hotspot. When you’re registered for UConnect® Access, you can purchase unlimited data for a day, week, month, or more, so that you and all of your passengers can remain connected wherever you’re headed. To register, all you have to do is:

  • Press the Assist button on your rearview mirror for a UConnect® Care agent to register your vehicle and take care of the details
  • Activate services online by entering your email address on the UConnect® touchscreen

Built-in Wi-Fi comes in handy when a passenger needs to check a work email or when you’re parked for the camping trip and want to check your social media page one last time, you can access this Wi-Fi up to 50 feet away from the vehicle.

Also on the entertainment front, larger models allow you to access Uconnect® Theater and dual touchscreens to watch movies, play games, and connect your compatible smartphone.
