What Can I Do With the Uconnect 5 System?


Connectivity technology has been among the most game-changing features to enter the automotive industry since AM/FM radio. The Uconnect infotainment software has ranked high among its peers since it was originally introduced. Southside Dodge customers can see this technology in action in almost every 2020 and newer Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram vehicle in our showroom. Our manufacturing partner has released Uconnect 5, the fifth generation of the software. Vehicle owners who have used previous versions of Uconnect will find the new system is more intuitive, faster, and compatible with more devices.

Does Uconnect 5 Work with iPhones?


Being able to connect popular devices to a vehicle’s infotainment system has become the must-have feature of the 21st century. Uconnect 5 does use a version of the Android operating system software to perform most functions. Naturally, it will support a wireless connection with Android Auto, but iPhone users will also be able to wirelessly connect to Apple CarPlay as well. Furthermore, more than one smartphone can be connected to a vehicle’s Uconnect infotainment system.



UConnect 5 Personalization Capability


Every Southside Dodge customer is different. Even when someone drives home in a vehicle equipped with Uconnect 5, it is likely that there will be more than one person using it. As many as five different user profiles can be created to give people the best possible experience with Uconnect 5. Not only can people customize the information displayed on the touchscreen interface, but things like temperature, seating position and mirror placement can all be stored in the driver profiles.


Will Uconnect 5 Work With Amazon Alexa?


Using the Amazon Alexa digital home assistant has really opened up a lot of opportunities for people. Uconnect 5 takes that capability out of the home and brings it to a wide range of cars, trucks and SUVs available at Southside Dodge. The Uconnect skill for Alexa can deliver the following abilities to owners:


  • Remote ignition
  • Lock/unlock doors
  • Create and access lists
  • Ask for news/traffic updates


There is so much that Uconnect 5 can do it’s all but impossible to write it all down. Make an appointment with a Southside Dodge product expert today to see a live demonstration of this incredible technology.
