FCA Offers Apple Siri Eyes Free Feature to Nearly Two Million Vehicles Through Uconnect® Software Update

  • Vehicle owners with properly equipped 2013-2015 Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep® and Ram vehicles can now add Apple Siri Eyes Free capability to their vehicle's Uconnect system
  • Vehicle owners in the U.S. and Canada can download a complementary software update from https://www.driveuconnect.com/software-update/

FCA Uconnect is releasing a new complimentary software update designed to add Apple Siri Eyes Free capability to the vehicle's Uconnect system for nearly two million properly equipped Uconnect vehicles dating back to the 2013 model year.

"With the addition of the Siri Eyes Free feature for later model-year vehicles, more customers will have an opportunity to integrate their iPhones with Uconnect while keeping their hands on the wheel and their eyes on road," says Tricia Hecker, Global Head of Connected Services, FCA. "By adding Siri Eyes Free capability, customers will be able to use their voice to dictate and send messages, select specific songs, create reminder notifications and set calendar entries."

About Siri Eyes Free
Drivers can activate Siri Eyes Free from the voice button on the steering wheel and speak natural language voice commands to send text messages, play music, set reminders, place phone calls and access turn-by-turn directions. Drivers will simply push and hold the voice recognition button on the steering wheel until the Siri screen appears on the 8.4-inch touch screen and the user hears the audible tones. Siri Eyes Free is compatible with an Apple iPhone 4s or later.
