UConnect; it would be nice....

if in a future update/release, user programmable soft buttons get added. The 'look-down' outside mirrors come in handy every once in a while; 'look-up' is just as handy. A soft button I could designate to switch on/off would make it that much more useful a feature. Two buttons would be even nicer

? You parking your Jeep on a runway or something? Or just looking for black helicopters or drones in the area before you back up?

Seriously, a small row of "user quick buttons" that could do commonly used driver operations would indeed be nice.

Re: UConnect; it would be nice....

I would just be happy if my damn radio would work.

I agree though, a button layout like the radio pre-set's would be nice for commonly used features.

I also would like to be able to choose which mirror tilts down in reverse, my preference is just the passenger side view tilt only.

Re: UConnect; it would be nice....

I'd be happy if the rear window defroster would come on automatically when remote starting in the Winter...like it used to do at version 13.19.



Chrysler...give us a new soft touch button for this feature!

Re: UConnect; it would be nice....

I'd be happier if threads were in the sections they are suppose to be in and not in the General area...Yikes!

Re: UConnect; it would be nice....

There is a lot of things that could be done with this technology. Chrysler should collect all of the ideas and implement some of them but i would imagine they are busy venting out alk the bugs.

I wish you could send a list of coordinates or POI from your desktop so you dont have to type a destination in from the car.

Having a wireless card in the car creates a lot of possibilities but none of them are explored.

You could do that with YELP, but by the time it opens, you type/verbalize it/ and it finds the place you want to eat lunch at, it will be time for dinner.

If they would move to a Garmin based system that would be no problem, along with planning routes and destinations on your desktop/laptop. I just did a trip to Maine and in this day and age it is ridiculous to have to do this in the vehicle. That said, the nav worked very well for the trip, even with maps that are 2 years old

Re: UConnect; it would be nice....

I had this feature in my old BMW and loved it. It had six hard buttons that you assign anything to from items in the car configuration menu, to phone book contacts, and favorite destinations. Hover over the button with your finger and it would show on the screen what the button was programmed to do. Very handy!
