Uconnect 8.4AN question
 
Hi guys! My husband and I just purchased a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited & it came with Uconnect 8.4AN. It's the first time I've ever seen the Uconnect, so forgive my ignorance, but I'm trying to find out how it works exactly. Here's my question...

The jeep came with a 12 month trial to Uconnect Access, but I don't know if I'll be willing to put out the extra $$ to keep the subscription after that. Which features will I lose once it's over? My main concerns are the navigation & the bluetooth hands-free phone (I have an iPhone). Are those features of Uconnect or are they standard with the jeep & will remain on after the subscription runs out?

Thanks in advance!

I'm still digging into it myself, but you won't lose phone connectivity since that's through Bluetooth and your phone and you won't lose navigation since that's part of the radio software. You will lose the sat radio and traffic condition options that sync with the nav. Anyone correct me if I'm wrong.

I think you also lose the 911 and Assistance features ... the buttons on the mirror.

I believe we are all trying to figure this system out. :)

Three weeks with the new jeep and I haven't had the time or patience to deal with u connect.

Think of anything uConnect Access as anything that requires the Jeep to use data through its Sprint connection. Without it, it can still do anything that doesn't require cellular data.

And Go Tigers!

Sirius/XM is separate. Here's a link to info:

does anyone know the cost of keeping each system after the trial period is over? The dealer plays dumb about that!

You have a 1yr trial I thought?? Doesn't seem to be anything on the UConnect website

I'm having trouble finding the site again but hte prices are

$9.99 per day
$19.99 per week
$37.99 per month

I never did find the price to make it a hot spot.

BTW this is the husband, it's supposed to be my account but if your married you know how that is LOL

I believe those are the prices for making it a hot spot.

Part of my smart phone with its $50/mo "unlimited" plan is that it can be a hot spot anywhere and not just in the heep & I can run my dash tablet, windows tablet, iPAD, and netbooks from it. I only need one check-of-the-month club for mobile & all can run off the cable wireless at home.

You really have to change the way you think about access, it should go with you and not the car.

I also have tablet mounts in all of my cars and the RV.
