2015 Easy-to-Use ‘Uconnect Access’ Services

FCA US LLC Debuts All-New and Easy-to-Use ‘Uconnect Access’ Services at 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas
There is more to U … with Uconnect Access


FCA US Operations Uconnect team introduces four all-new “Uconnect Access” services: Vehicle Finder, Send Destination to Vehicle, Vehicle Health Report and Vehicle Health Alert

Revitalized and refreshed Uconnect Access smartphone app designed with a whole new look, feel and functionality

January 5, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US Operations is feeling lucky and heading to the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, adding to its acclaimed “Uconnect Access” suite of connected in-vehicle services. Uconnect introduces four all-new services that include Vehicle Finder, Send Destination to Vehicle, a Monthly Vehicle Health Report and Vehicle Health Alert. These services are uniquely designed to help consumers monitor and maintain their vehicle’s key systems, easily navigate to desired destinations and keep track of their vehicle’s location at all times.

“The Uconnect team is dedicated to delivering services and features that are innovative, functional and most of all easy to use,” said Al Amici, Head of Global Uconnect System and Services, FCA US LLC. “We understand that our customers lead busy lifestyles and our goal is to minimize the everyday stresses by providing drivers with a variety of ways to stay conveniently connected to their vehicle.”

In addition to the four all-new Uconnect Access services, Uconnect is introducing a revitalized and refreshed Uconnect Access smartphone application designed with a whole new look, feel and functionality. With the new revived Uconnect Access application, vehicle owners can navigate through the app in a faster and much more intuitive manner, allowing customers to connect to an array of remote services that includes the all-new Vehicle Finder and Send Destination to Vehicle.

Vehicle Finder
With the all-new Vehicle Finder service located on the new Uconnect Access app, trying to remember where you parked your vehicle is ancient history. With a touch of a button, customers can view the location of their vehicle via map, satellite or hybrid views. Once a view is chosen, a prompt menu will ask to Find Route or Sound Horn. When the Find Route icon is chosen, customers will be prompted to select a navigation application to route via walk or drive.

Send Destination to Vehicle
Located within the new Uconnect Access app, the all-new Send Destination to Vehicle service allows customers to send a location address directly to their Uconnect system’s large touchscreen and navigate with ease. Destinations can be found by conducting a point of interest search and browsing through a list of provided categories, such as restaurants, hotels and gas stations. Alternately, a destination can be found by typing in the name or keyword in the search box located at the top of the app. Once a destination has been chosen, consumers can view the location on a map, see the distance from the current location, send the address to the in-vehicle navigation system by pressing the Send to Vehicle icon or call the location from their mobile device by pressing the Call icon. When the Send to Vehicle icon is chosen, the destination address will automatically be sent to the vehicle. Once the vehicle is started, a final message will pop up on the Uconnect screen with a Go Now prompt icon.

Monthly Vehicle Health Report and Vehicle Health Alert
Maintaining a vehicle’s healthy status has become much easier with Monthly Vehicle Health Report, a monthly report that is sent to customers’ personal email accounts informing them about their vehicle’s performance status. At a glance, vehicle owners can review and monitor the status of a vehicle’s key systems, including powertrain, oil and fluids, brakes, suspension and safety systems.

Once a month, the vehicle owner will receive an email report that shows the status of their vehicle’s key systems. Within the email, owners will find color-coded icons that will inform of an action that may be needed, such as a green check icon that signifies that no issues are found, a yellow exclamation point will signify that action is suggested and a red x will signify that immediate action is needed. If the vehicle owner would like additional information, they can also login to the owner website where a more comprehensive and detailed report is available.

In addition to the Monthly Health Report, Uconnect Access customers will have access to Vehicle Health Alert. With this service, vehicle owners will immediately receive an email alert that is sent if one of the key powertrain, oil and fluids, brakes, suspension or safety systems requires attention. Once a warning light of one of these key systems appears in the vehicle dashboard, an alert will be sent immediately to the vehicle owner's email account that explains what the warning light means, how the vehicle is affected and what action needs to be taken.

Uconnect Vehicle Finder App

Lost in the lot? Forget your spot in a garage? Our Uconnect Access services will help keep you connected with your car, truck or SUV. Now you can find your vehicle fast, find a location and get vehicle health updates with four all-new Uconnect Access services. We’re highlighting the new apps and services all day here on the FCA Corporate Facebook page. If you’re attending the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas, stop by the Uconnect booth for a demonstration!

We’ve all felt the panic that comes along with having no idea where you parked. Now you can leave that feeling in the rearview mirror. The ‘Vehicle Finder’ service located within the new Uconnect Access app, will let you view the location of your vehicle via map or satellite or a hybrid of both. You will be prompted to either ‘find route’ or ‘sound horn.’ If you don’t want to sound your horn because you are parked a mile away, you can choose the navigation application. It’ll take you straight to your vehicle whether you are still travelling on foot or were lucky enough to find a friend willing to drive you to your car. Here’s a quick video demonstration.
