Chrysler Announces New Uconnect System with Internet Radio Streaming

Commerce Chrysler will soon be showcasing new Chrysler’s with the updated Uconnect system which allows for better connectivity while driving.

Online PR News – 30-January-2013 – Commerce, GA – Chrysler is taking its already innovative Uconnect system to a new level with added apps and services. The biggest updates are it can now connect to internet radio sources and the navigation system has been tweaked in some models. Contact Commerce Chrysler, Athens premiere Chrysler dealership, for more information on which models will be available with the updated system.

The Uconnect system has been one of the best infotainment systems on the market due to its easily visible touchscreen and fast responses, however; it gets even better now. The new system called “Uconnect Access Via Mobile” allows drivers to plug in their Bluetooth phones to the system for increased connectivity while driving. The four sources that can be connected are Aha, iHeartRadio, Pandora or Slacker.

Although each of these sources is similar in that they bring new sources of music to the driver, each one is very unique. The Aha by Harman brings everything, GPS, social networks, radio service, traffic reports and weather reports, right to the driver. iHeartRadio brings added sources of radio stations allowing the driver to create playlists from 1,500 stations and 15 million songs. Pandora offers a wide selection of musical artists and Slacker delivers Internet radio stations, podcasts and radio clips.

Uconnect allows the driver to access these four platforms hands free, using voice commands and controls on the steering wheel. The system will also read back information such as text messages, social media news feeds and weather and traffic updates. This creates a safer and more convenient driving experience for Chrysler owners.

Chrysler is also offering some other Uconnect features to sweeten the deal. This includes a one-touch 911 dialing system and a remote lock/unlock app via web or smartphone. Also, the updated navigation system will be available as an add-on even after purchase. So, if consumers wish to purchase the navigation system after having the Chrysler for several months, they will be able to do so.

The new Uconnect system will enhance the driving experience for added enjoyment and convenience. The launch date for the new Uconnect system has not been released yet, but for more information consumers can contact Commerce Chrysler, the local Athens Chrysler dealership.
