Re: iPhone ap for 2014 GC models

I found this press release from Chrysler about the "via Mobile" part of UConnect Access...

http://media.chrysler.com/newsreleas...id=13633&mid=9

I'd like to know the follow-on subscription rates once the free trial is over, so I emailed the person listed in the "Contact Info" box on that press release. I also sent an inquiry via the UConnect Access support page.

I'm mainly interested in the remote start via smartphone function, so I hope they will have an a-la-carte subscription available.

I'll post any information once I receive it.

Well, this is what their competition currently charges with their 2 packages, hopefully UConnect retains more functionality without subscription and CHEAPER:

I assume this is only for '14 models and not '11-13?

Yes, the UConnect Apps, (as far as I know) are for the MY14 RA3 and RA4 UConnects only (via UConnect Access)

Re: iPhone ap for 2014 GC models

I received this reply from Chrysler Customer Service regarding my inquiry as to Uconnect Access via Mobile renewal fees:

"Thank you for contacting the Chrysler Customer Assistance Center. <O</O
<O></O>
Unfortunately, we have not been given a cost for the uconnect access as of yet as the trials are still being put into some vehicles. We do apologize that we cannot provide more information at this time."

<OI have not heard yet from the other person listed in the Contact Info of the press release; I suspect the answer will be the same.</O

Re: iPhone ap for 2014 GC models

Just received this reply from Eric Mayne, the Chrysler Media Relations Manager listed in the press release I linked to earlier.

"RA4 radios that feature navigation come with a complimentary subscription to Uconnect Access. Renewal pricing will be announced soon. Uconnect Access Via Mobile launch and pricing announcements will follow, later this year."



I wrote back that it would be nice to have a-la-carte pricing for the "via Mobile" feature because the only "app" I can see myself using is the remote start via iPhone. Don't want to pay for all the other streaming features, just to start my car.


He forwarded that input to the Uconnect folks.
