If you're on the verge of purchasing a new Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, or RAM, you'll want to know about the Uconnect® system and what it has to offer Pasadena drivers. So what is Uconnect®? As its name implies, Uconnect® is the software and hardware within a Dodge Challenger or Jeep Grand Cherokee that connects the car and the driver. Uconnect® features range from navigation to entertainment, hands-free calling, messaging, and much more. Let's explore!

What Are the Uconnect® Features?

A suite of features come standard with Uconnect®, allowing you to monitor performance, connect smart devices, and consume entertainment almost immediately upon sitting in the driver's seat. Needless to say, your Houston commute will feel a bit shorter with these features.

  •  SiriusXM Guardian™ and Uconnect® Access: Combining these available features allows you to connect with your vehicle no matter where you are. Remotely start your vehicle, lock/unlock the doors, and even sound the horn. Find your vehicle location, and send directions from your phone straight to your Uconnect® system.
  • Audio Options: Find and play the music you want through various audio options. SiriusXM™, Bluetooth® streaming, and HD Radio™ are all available for you to use. Connect up to ten devices so everyone can join in on the fun.
  • Available 4G Wi-Fi®: The built-in Wi-Fi® allows you to browse the internet, check your email, and more-and from up to 50 feet away from your vehicle. Try out this feature through a trial version, or take part in the day passes or subscription services.
  • Voice-Command: Stay hands-free on your drives with voice-command. Make calls, reply to text messages, set up navigation, select music, and more all without taking your hands off the wheel.
  • Navigation: When you opt for the Uconnect® Navigation package, you'll have the benefit of 3-D generated maps with turn-by-turn navigation. SiriusXM® Traffic Plus and Travel Link can also give you a boost with up-to-date weather and traffic reports.
  • Entertainment: In larger CDJR models, you can access the Uconnect® Theater so your passengers can game, watch movies, or go online on one of the dual 10-inch touchscreens. Best of all, Uconnect® is compatible with Android and Apple smartphones through Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™.

Can You Turn Uconnect® Off?

Though Uconnect® is always on when your vehicle is on, muting or turning off parts of the software is an easy process. 

Turn Off or Mute Uconnect®

  • Both the screen and radio can be powered down
  • Text message alerts can be silenced. Tap the "Phone" button. Say: "setup, incoming SMS message announcement." Respond "yes" when asked if you want it turned off.
  • You can also select the parts of Uconnect® you want on or off, and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to the team at Bayway Chrysler Dodge Jeep and Ram.
