Other functions if Uconnect replaced

I am thinking of replacing the head unit with an aftermarket unit. I understand the backup camera shouldn't be an issue, but what about the other functions on the RA3 screen? Will an aftermarket unit (and if so, which one) be able to run the ventilated seats and climate controlls? I'd put up with the worlds krappiest radio to keep my backside cool.

Re: Other functions if Uconnect replaced

I don't believe there is an aftermarket headunit for the 2014+ Grand Cherokees. Why do you want to upgrade the 8.4" headunit?

Re: Other functions if Uconnect replaced

The dealer is going to look at it this week. Even after updating the software from uconnect, I don't have an Apps tab and while I can make phone calls, I can't connect to Pandora. So basically I have an Am/Fm radio that turns on my ventilated seats.
