Works/Doesn't Work in Canada
 
Will be taking a family trip into Canada this weekend and I am wondering what will work and not work on UConnect while there. I think that, based on the manual, SiriusXM satellite radio and 9-1-1 button will not work. Anything else? Is the traffic feature integrated into the Nav disabled? How about Yelp (not that it works well in the States)? i will most likely have my phone turned off (because I am too cheap to pay the additional charges) but, if I had it on, would all features work with the UConnect system? Thanks for your information.

Oh and sirius is available in canada now, altho when i lived there 02-05 i had an 05 durago and it worked the entire time i was there. Sirius is not limited to borders, only you pocketbook.........

I travel to the US quite often and my Sirius works fine, no additional charges. I do not have Sirius Traffic so I'm not sure about that.

I have not tried 911 on my Uconnect so I'm not sure about that.

Thanks for your replies. Interesting about Sirius. The UConnect 8.4AN manual for the 2014 JGC states that the satellite service "is available only to those at least 18 and older in the 48 contiguous USA and DC." Maybe they just mean for subscribing in the U.S.? It would be good if it continued working in Canada. Otherwise, I think I may be forced to listen to music from my daughter's iPod.

Works fine, like i said had it for ages in canada and i drove to and from the pga in rochester via canada and everything worked. The only thing that i dont think will work is the assist, as you need cell coverage and there is no cell agreement in canada. 911 will work as its toll free emergency.
