Description
The Chrysler Group UConnect™ Hands-Free Communication system uses Bluetooth® technology — the global standard that enables different electronic devices to connect to one another without wires or a docking station. With one touch of a button, UConnect provides short-range wireless communication between the customer’s compatible cellular telephone and the vehicle’s on-board receiver, no matter where the cellular telephone is stored – be it purse, pocket or briefcase. UConnect allows consumers the choice of any cell-carrier's Bluetooth phone.
 
The Chrysler Group was the first North American automaker to offer its customers a Bluetooth-enabled automotive application in 2003. The first product to offer UConnect as a factory-installed option was the 2004 Chrysler Pacifica.
 
The vehicle’s rearview mirror contains the system’s microphone and control buttons, which allow the user to access the intuitive system. The audio is heard through the vehicle’s radio speakers.
 
UConnect features the following:

  • Voice dialing – voice commands can be used to digit-dial the phone or access pre-stored voice tags
  • Audio address book – enables customers to store up to 32 names and four numbers per name, for a total of 128 phone numbers
  • Audio system mute – mutes the microphone for privacy
  • Call transfer – allows the customer to transfer a call from the vehicle’s communication system to the mobile phone
  • Communicates in three languages – English, French and Spanish
  • Multiphone recognition – up to seven phones can be paired with one vehicle
