How Does Uconnect System Work?

We have customers and shoppers that occasionally stop by North York Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram to ask questions about the Uconnect systems. These infotainment systems used in Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram vehicles put quite a few resources at your fingertips, if you realize what all they can do. This overview will give you a good idea of some of the more prominent features.

Of course, you can experience the Uconnect features for yourself by visiting us, your friendly car dealer in Thornhill, for a test drive. We have plenty of great vehicles in stock, so choose the one which interests you the most.


Comprehensive Functions

Manage whatever you need while driving or even parked in your vehicle, thanks to the Uconnect system. Simple menus make finding what you need to do easy, so you can concentrate while behind the wheel.

Through the touchscreen you can manage the sound system and access information about the vehicle. Uconnect can link up to your smartphone through a Bluetooth connection. Optional navigation puts directions and maps right in front of you for easy reference. If you add a rear-seat entertainment system, you can manage it through the infotainment screen as well.

Optional 4G WiFi puts high-speed data in your vehicle, accessible from virtually anywhere. Through this, you can stream videos, check your email, update social media accounts, and more using a mobile device.


Uconnect Access

One great option is Uconnect Access. This group of services helps you to better manage the vehicle from just about anywhere, so you have an improved ownership experience. From the infotainment screen you can call for emergency services or roadside assistance.

Using your smartphone and the Uconnect Access app, you're able to track the vehicle's location. That's a big help if you forgot where you've parked, or someone has stolen your vehicle.

Remote vehicle start is perfect in the winter or summer. It allows you to heat up or cool down the interior well before you climb inside, assuring your comfort. In addition, you can lock or unlock the doors, sound the horn, or flash the vehicle lights remotely.

Through the vehicle, use voice commands to get directions to certain locations. You can even ask for a list of possible destinations, like top-rated restaurants or a local movie theater.


There's even a Drive Rating feature. It monitors your driving habits and coaches you on ways to improve, which is an excellent help.

SiriusXM Guardian

Through SiriusXM Guardian, some of the Uconnect features are further enhanced. You also benefit from additional services, making for an even better experience.

An SOS button on the rearview mirror means help is even easier to reach at a moment's notice. Press it to get in touch with emergency services or to get roadside assistance at any time.

When the theft alarm for your vehicle has been triggered, alerts through the app or text message can push to your phone. It's another way you can keep your car safe from anywhere, thanks to SiriusXM Guardian Uconnect App Ram.
