What is Uconnect®?

If you’re in the market for a new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram, one of the many reasons you’ve chosen to zero in on these brands may be for their advanced Uconnect® system interfaces. If you’re new to these brands, two of the first questions you may be asking yourself are, “What is Uconnect®, and how will it improve my Marrero commute?”

In the simplest terms, CDJR models equipped with this available technology will enhance your driving experience with GPS navigation, entertainment, hands-free messaging and calling, and much more! Sounds pretty great, right? Learn more about all the convenient Uconnect® features with Ray Brandt Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.

What are the Uconnect® Features?

Your Uconnect® system will be accompanied by a suite of technologies ranging from device-pairing connectivity tools to exceptional entertainment features that many expect from new vehicles. Here are some other feature highlights you’ll be happy to have on Gretna drives:

  • SiriusXM Guardian™ and Uconnect® Access: With the marriage of SiriusXM Guardian™ and Uconnect®, you’ll remain connected to your vehicle wherever you are. This tech lets you sound your alarm/horn, lock/unlock your doors, and remotely start the vehicle from the comfort of your living room during a downpour. You can even locate your vehicle when you just can’t remember what garage level you parked on!
  • Audio Options: No more surfing FM stations attempting to avoid commercials and hear something other than the Top 40. You’ll enjoy multiple listening options with Uconnect®, including SirisXM™, HD Radio™, and Bluetooth® streaming. And it doesn’t end there; you can connect a maximum of 10 devices at once!
  • Voice-Command: Safely answer phone calls, respond to text messages, and set up navigation without ever taking your hands off the wheel or your eyes off the road.
  • Available 4G Wi-Fi®: Working through a road trip while your friend drives? No problem! You’ll have access to email and whatever else you need to get your job done on the go, from inside of or within 50 feet of your vehicle. Do note that you’ll be able to take a test run with a free trial, and after that, you can purchase day passes or a subscription.
  • Navigation: With Uconnect® Navigation, you’ll be confident in new-to-you areas with 3D-generated maps, and with turn-by-turn directions, you’ll never miss your exit. Utilize SiriusXM® Traffic Plus and Travel Link to enhance your experience with the latest weather and traffic reports.
  • Entertainment: If you’re opting for a larger truck or SUV from CDJR, you’ll gain access to Uconnect® Theater. Your antsy passengers will remain entertained with the ability to watch movies, play video games, and go online with a dual 10-inch touchscreen, complete with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

Can You Turn Uconnect® Off?

Understandably, some drivers only want the basics in their cabin. While Uconnect® is always on when your vehicle is running, you do have the ability to mute or turn off certain parts. Just for starters, one could easily mute the radio and shut the screen off! There’s also an easy way to get a break from inbound text messages:

  • Press the “Phone” button, then, “setup, incoming SMS message announcement.”
  • Finally, respond “yes” when prompted with the option to turn SMS announcements off.

Although you won’t be able to turn off Uconnect® in its entirety, you can always turn off specific features that you find distracting. If you have any further questions about Uconnect®, feel free to contact Ray Brandt Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. Our dedicated team will always be happy to assist you!
