Uconnect - Hands-free, Entertainment, Navigation, And More!
When you place the Dodge Challenger and the Fiat 500 side by side, they seem to have very few things in common except for the steering wheel, doors, and four tires. However, they’re manufactured by the same company and use the same state-of-the-art infotainment system. Dubbed as ‘Uconnect’, this technology is a trademark of the FCA group or Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Both Chrysler and Fiat have the freedom to modify Uconnect’s graphics, functions, and menus. Nevertheless, it’s the most intuitive system you’ll ever use.
What Is Uconnect?
It is an infotainment platform that offers several entertainments, connectivity, and navigation features.
What Does It Do?
Uconnect’ screen replaces the radio on your dashboard. At its most basic level, it lets drivers select the music they’d like to hear. With just one tap, you get access to a wide radio menu selection. From here, you can pick a radio station, change between AM and FM bands, or choose a different media source. Your options include iPod, Sirius XM satellite, or Bluetooth audio streaming. Planning to go on a cross-country vacation? You can use Uconnect theatre to keep the whole family entertained during the journey. To ensure that drivers keep their eyes on the road, there are buttons on the wheel, located on the center console.
You may also pair an Android-powered or Apple device to the car through Uconnect. Other tasks you can accomplish using this function are:
- make hands free phone calls
- access your contacts list
- send text messages
- navigation and more!

Any brand operating under the trademark of FCA group umbrella is equipped with Uconnect. It is available on the following models:
