One of the highlights of the CES tradeshow in Las Vegas every year is seeing car manufacturers bringing car information and entertainment systems that just keep getting better and better every year. And at CES 2016, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) are bringing a new version of their Uconnect car information and entertainment system to the masses, complete with better Android Auto execution.
“The Uconnect team is evolving Uconnect and making it even better,” said Joni Christensen, Head of Uconnect Marketing from FCA US. “With the launch of the fourth generation of Uconnect systems, we are continuing to minimize the everyday stresses of busy lifestyles by providing drivers with a variety of ways to stay conveniently connected to their vehicles, while making every drive exceptionally informative, entertaining and unique.”
The Android Auto in Uconnect provides drivers their highlight features: Google Maps with free voice-guided navigation, live traffic information, lane guidance; on-demand access to 30 million songs with Google Play Music; the ability to place phone calls or send and receive messages while keeping your hands on the wheel; and asking Google search any question.
This new system will soon be available in select models in 2016, including the 2016 Dodge Charger Pursuit exclusive for law enforcement agencies in the US. FCA is putting out a police-exclusive version of Uconnect that will be a great help to law enforcement officers.
