With the Uconnect 5 system, you can create a personalized welcome screen by including your most frequently used features here. And on the center display, group display, or heads-up display, you can keep tabs on the information you value most, such as powertrain temperatures. Plus, if you share your Ram pickup with family or coworkers, you can create up to five user profiles, which store vehicle operation and individual music preferences.
You can connect your phone to the Uconnect 5 system with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto wirelessly. And a passenger can also connect their phone at the same time, so everyone can control the music, get directions to your destination, and send text messages using the touchscreen or your voice.
The Uconnect 5 system also comes with Amazon Alexa. You can ask Alexa to do anything like play a song, check the weather, and add a task to your to-do list.
The Ram Telematics feature now allows fleet owners to monitor vehicles through a third party fleet data collection company. This makes it easier to keep track of maintenance and organize routes.
The telematics box module
With the Telematics Box module, the infotainment system can receive updates over the air. In addition, it can work with Vehicle Health Alert, Vehicle Health Report and Ram mobile apps.
The Uconnect app
You can download the Uconnect app to your smartphone to stay connected to your Ram truck outside of the cab. It has the ability to receive notifications about your vehicle as well as remotely start the engine and unlock the doors.
All of these features make the Uconnect 5 system the most advanced in-cab technology available for Ram models.
