Cool 8.4-inch Touch-Screen

Chrysler Really Connects With 8.4-inch Touch-Screen

05/07/2013

Uconnect 8.4 Availability:

2013 Ram 1500, 2500/3500
2013 Dodge Charger
2013 Dodge Dart
2014 Dodge Durango
2013 Dodge Journey
2013 Chrysler 300
2013 SRT Viper
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee





Chrysler's massive 8.4-inch touch-screen available in Dodge, Jeep, Chrysler, Ram and SRT models is one of the few multimedia systems to integrate dozens of tasks without overwhelming users. Tasks including smartphone integration, navigation, Satellite radio and more pair with climate control functions in one easy-to-use 8.4-inch command center versus an unwieldy combination of knobs, buttons and touch-screen complexity.

Testing Chrysler's latest Uconnect 8.4 system in the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee reminded us how seamless Uconnect works and why it's one of our favorites. Below are five aspects of the Uconnect 8.4 system that give it an advantage over not only direct competitors of Chrysler products, but in the grand scheme of all automotive multimedia offerings.





Equal parts virtual and physical control
Chrysler could have easily made the massive 8.4-inch touch-screen the only way to access climate and tuning controls. Instead, good old redundant physical climate controls are familiar sights below the touch-screen for temperature, fan speed and defroster. In addition, the buttons and knobs aren't the modern, stylish touch-sensitive capacitive buttons so many automakers are adopting. They're just easy to reach, read and touch buttons.
