Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep to Offer CarPlay in Select Vehicles This Year

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles ahead of CES today announced the fourth-generation of its Uconnect infotainment automobile system, which will bring Apple CarPlay support to select cars manufactured by the company in 2016. The Uconnect system uses an 8.4-inch touch screen for users to interface with various Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep models and control music, navigation, and phone calls.

CarPlay will allow FCA customers the ability to sync an iPhone to their vehicle and gain access to their music library, contacts list, navigation settings, and text messages all from the existing Uconnect touch screen. Besides CarPlay support, the 2016 update to UConnect will bring along a capacitive touchscreen, speedier startup times, enhanced processing power, heightened UI response, and better resolution and brightness.

In addition to Apple CarPlay, the fourth-generation UConnect system will support Android Auto for non-iOS users. With today's announcement, FCA joins a host of car manufacturers that are introducing CarPlay support in some of their latest 2016 models, including Chevrolet, Honda, and Ford.

Really wish they would offer a software upgrade for the current gen Uconnect. It's got more than enough oomph to run CarPlay.

Dear Toyota, you lost a $60k sale to Volvo for not revealing any plans to include CarPlay.

When is Mercedes supposed to support CarPlay? They demoed it almost 2 years ago...

My 2012 Chrysler's CD player automatically forces a 2-second gap between tracks on CDs that have no gap between tracks. I listen to a lot of live music so this is completely unacceptable. I called the customer service and the lady told me the CD "had too much data on it"...the hell are these fools talking about?

I'd take CarPlay if I could get rid of Chrysler's absolutely deplorable entertainment center.
