FCA has a great reputation for creating innovative designs when it comes to their vehicles and engines, but it’s just as imaginative when it comes to their in-house technologies, more specifically its Uconnect 5 system. Now more than ever, their infotainment is more advanced and efficient than it’s ever been before. While many owners may be familiar with interior technologies, they haven’t experienced avant-garde experience until they’ve seen the latest Uconnect. Here are the Top Features Of FCA’s Uconnect 5 System.
One of the most engaging features concerning consumer products is giving the buyer the ability to personalize his or her experience. The Uconnect 5 allows one to tailor the interface in several different ways, storing up to five different user profiles. Users can build their own profile, and tailor their likings for music and vehicle operation.
There different ways to engage with the Uconnect 5 system, but perhaps the most convenient of them all is through voice recognition. One can voice commands or ask questions such as Hey Chrysler, change the temperature to 70 degrees.” Of course, this will only be effective by using the activation word “Hey Chrysler” before giving the command.
One might say that this method is a safer option because you don’t have to take your eyes off the road trying to find the right button. Additionally, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can also be controlled by voice engagement.
Uconnect’s latest navigation system is more advanced than ever before, integrating the TomTom traffic feature, along with EV and other connected services. Like a smartphone, the One-Box-Search makes finding your destination a breeze by using your voice or keypad. However, it’s even better than a personal device since it continues to work without needing Wi-Fi.
Two new features involve FCA’s Maps Over The Air and Last Mile Navigation. The first is a TomTom system that automatically downloads updates in the background relating to nearby traffic, and won’t interfere while in use. The second tells you where to go from your car to your final destination by way of the system’s smartphone app.
Need to find the nearest gas station, restaurant, or parking space? Not the worry, as Uconnect’s Market has you back with its in-vehicle commerce platform. This allows owners to make merchant preferences without even leaving the car. The system will help you save time by allowing you to order their food, make dinner reservations, or even reserve a table. Other features involve located the nearest gas station and pay in the car as well as finding and reserving a spot for certain parking areas.
The Uconnect Mobile App
As previously mentioned, Uconnect is with you wherever you are thanks to FCA’s smartphone app. Other than Last Mile Navigation, you can use the app for functions like starting your engine, locking or unlocking your car, or getting notifications.
Speaking of notifications, owners will receive an alert when someone drives his or her vehicle while in Valet Alert mode. Then, should you find your car missing while not in Valet Mode, one can aid the police in tracking the location of their car using Stolen Vehicle Assistance.
This app includes other features like Family Drive Alerts to notify parents of teen drivers, as well Assist Call, so one can contact Uconnect’s customer care team for assistance with their instructions regarding the system or instructions for their vehicle.
Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) Updates
At long last, servicing and maintenance are made easy with FOTA updates. This technology is responsible for giving owners notice when it’s time for an oil change. This system also is paired with Vehicle Health Report and Vehicle Health Alert to provide the most relevant piece of information and in a timely manner.
