May 29, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

The Mopar brand has redesigned and enhanced its suite of FCA Owner apps, putting more resources than ever at owners’ fingertips with easier access to vehicle and lifestyle information.

Beginning with model-year 2011 vehicles, Mopar was the industry-first to introduce smartphone vehicle-information apps for customers. The latest enhancement to FCA Owner apps, available free for download for both iOS and Android mobile devices, provides access to an archive of vehicle-specific information, including maintenance schedules, service history, recall notices and more.

“Mopar was first with smartphone vehicle apps for customers, and the redesigned FCA Owner apps provide another important extension of the vehicle ownership experience,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO – Mopar Brand Service, Parts and Customer Care, FCA. “From augmented reality to a wide variety of vehicle-specific information, FCA Owner apps are a comprehensive mobile tool for owners on-the-go in their customer journey every day.”

Owners can tap into an “augmented reality” function through the app, using the camera feature on mobile devices to scan and identify certain instrument panel icons. How-to information and videos are also available, and owners can log and track vehicle mileage or monitor a purchased Mopar Vehicle Protection plan.

Push notifications allow the customer to regularly receive important information updates about their vehicle, including maintenance offers, open recall alerts and tricks and tips.

An enhanced Parking Reminder feature enables owners to set a pin at their parking location and a timer for the meter, and even provides walking directions back to the vehicle. Users can connect with dealerships to find a nearby location and view coupons, or for those looking to purchase a new ride, schedule a test drive and receive a quote.

An OEM industry-first Accident Assistant feature helps owners create accident records, upload insurance information and capture accident scene photos. Owners can search a Shop Locator by city or ZIP code to find a certified FCA collision repair facility and schedule an appointment to ensure their vehicle is repaired using original equipment parts. Owners can also access Roadside Assistance.

Owners can customize the app to highlight their favorite FCA US vehicle brand, choosing from Chrysler for Owners, Drive Dodge, Jeep® Vehicle Owners, Ram Toolbox, My FIAT and Mopar Owner’s Companion versions of the app. Each brand version also supports other 2011-2015 FCA brand models — for instance, owners can download the Ram Toolbox version of the app but still access vehicle information on Jeep or Chrysler vehicles parked in their garage.

All brand versions of the app are available for download in both English and Spanish on mobile devices, including phones and tablets.
