Send Destination to Vehicle - Availability on 2015 GC?

Can anyone advise when the "Send Destination to Vehicle" function that was announced at CES 2015 will be available on the 2015 Grand Cherokee? The FCA demo video shows a Grand Cherokee so my assumption is that the GC is one of the 2015 vehicles to get the feature.

Interesting [sorry can't answer your question].

Is this a real POI loader using the same interface every other GPS on the planet, and the ones on Pluto, use?

Or does it require buying the Uconnect interface feature and installing custom software on a smartphone?

Re: Send Destination to Vehicle - Availability on 2015 GC?

If you watch the video, it looks like it just sends the address to the Jeep. This is done using the uConnect app. I am not sure if you can send a destination from your Jeep Owner account using a browser (you can do a remote start this way). Also, it doesn't look like there is an option to enter your own address and send that to the Jeep - it looks like you can only select from a list of POI's on the smartphone screen. Hope they are resolving that before launching.

I wish they'd just release this new uconnect app already. And for the love of God, can they optimize the app for the iPhone 6/6+ already on iOS? We're only going on 9+ months after release of the most popular phone on the planet lol.

I was talking with a Jeep Customer Service Representative the other day about an issue I reported and inquired about this capability. His response was it was set to happen later this year. I'm not holding my breath, but it surely would be nice.

Uconnect access app is crap. Onstar has a way better app by far.

IMOH, don't hold your breath on this feature coming out soon and without any bugs...
