App for Uconnect?

Picked up new Grand Cherokee yesterday. When I was playing around and learning the systems I paired the iPhone with the car. At some point a pop up on the phone said something about downloading a Uconnect app from the App Store. However I couldn't find it. And I couldnt repeat it.

Anyone familiar with this? No Uconnect app could be located by searching.

Wondering if it's a US only thing.

pretty sure everything it does requires a model with a cellular modem in it- and also pretty sure only the US models have that.

It would give you access to keyfob functions over the internet via the modem. It also allows you to control a handfull of apps (pandora, slacker, aha) that download to the radio over the modem.

the good news for you is that the keyfob functions generally stink and they charge an exorbitant fee for it's use. And the pandora, slacker, and aha apps aren't exactly stellar- for one they require your phones data- you'd probably be just as happy or happier with siri or google now controlling your cell phone's streaming to the radio.

Re: App for Uconnect?

Ok thanks.

I use Tune In Radio Pro or Casts for any streaming to the iPhone and Bluetooth to the car radio.

When we were looking at other vehicles before settling on the Jeep, some of them had that Apple system in them. I was not all to get a good look at them.

Anyway, so far what this dies is fine. If Tune In or Casts, my podcast app could be controlled from Uconnect then that'd be handy. But if you say that you have to pay for this service then I'll give it a miss.
