FCA Uconnect is releasing a complimentary software update design to add Apple Siri Eyes Free capability to select Uconnect systems dating back to the 2013 model year.
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 with Apple iPhone 4s and later phones. 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.
The new software update is available for the following vehicles equipped with the Uconnect 8.4 touch screen system:
2013-2015 Ram 1500, 2500, 3500
2013-2015 Dodge Viper
2014-2015 Dodge Durango
2015 Dodge Challenger and Charger
2014-2015 Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee
