There’s no doubt that our new vehicles at Ourisman Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM of Bowie boast innovative features. One example of that cutting-edge technology is certainly Uconnect. So, just what is that exactly, and does your vehicle have it?

What is Uconnect?

Uconnect is an intuitive infotainment system built into Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM, and FIAT vehicles. It offers a plethora of features that provide added connectivity and convenience. These features are easily accessed on your vehicle’s touchscreen or with voice-command, if applicable. \

You can use the system to listen to music or get turn-by-turn directions. It can also allow you to turn on a Wi-Fi® hotspot to let other devices in the car connect too.

What is Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™?

Both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ are part of Uconnect. With their integration, you can easily access your phone on your touchscreen.

You can seamlessly make and receive phone calls or text messages through the system. You can also access your phone’s compatible apps, utilize your maps, and listen to your favorite playlists.

Does My Vehicle Have it?

Chances are, if you drive a new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM, or FIAT vehicle, you have Uconnect. When it comes to used models, this system was introduced in some vehicles earlier than others.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee, for example, has had Uconnect since 2014, while the Jeep Renegade introduced the system in 2018. Keep in mind, the features of each system, particularly the available screen sizes, will vary depending on the vehicle you choose.
