Re: Uconnect requested features

I would like to see a "Trip Summary" screen added to the Evic.

I love to see my "Time of Arrival" or "Distance Remaining" on long road trips, but I don't necessarily want the display to always be on Navigation.

A screen that had the following would be great:

Time of Arrival: 9:15PM
Distance Remaining: 125 miles
Next Turn In: 45 miles (Exit 45)
Distance Traveled: 200 miles
Average Speed: 64 mph

Re: Uconnect requested features

I normally use the analog speedometer, and only the speedometer. When I use the navigation I like the next turn showing up as it gives an idea of how sharp the turn is. The two optional displays are time and direction.

The 8" screen is off.

I really don't see a need to constantly have oil pressure, tranny fluid temp, etc. If there is a problem something will pop up on the screen.

I know the opinions that if you see a fluctuation you might be able to stop before the warning light comes on. It's true, but in over 40 years of driving I never had something happen that having been watching the gauges would have helped.

I am not promoting that everybody turn your gauges off. If it makes you feel more secure, more in charge, or just enjoy the look, that's great.

Re: Uconnect requested features

I would just like to have uConnect work with current iPhone and iOS for messaging.
at least allow passthrough to Siri as mentioned above.

I posted this on another thread but thought it was relevant here as well.

I'd like to see the Uconnect (since it's got the cell service) tell me that the car turned on (feedback) as well as give me certain options from my phone before the car is activated by pressing the ignition button. Let me set the temperature and other basic settings (seats) before I get in the car. Maybe if I get held up after starting the car, tell me it's about to shut off and give me the option to extend the time.

New thoughts:

Tell me if the alarm goes off.

When auto starting from phone let me select passengers as an option so that it knows to turn on more than just the drivers heated or cooled seats...

It would be nice to remotely open the windows and even the sunroof via the remote or app...

Create some kind of an SDK so developers can create applications for Uconnect, even if only a few approved developers. It would expand functionality and get us updates faster. I'm thinking trapster, Glympse and other useful applications for driving.

The ability to run a few at once would be nice, pandora streaming with trapster running and navigation too.

Who developed, for example, the Pandora app for uConnect? Does the uConnect team develop these apps, or does it come from Pandora.
