Internally designated Uconnect 8.4AN, the 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system adds five big updates for the 2016 model year. Other than the improved voice recognition accuracy and noise cancellation software, a Do Not Disturb feature has been added for drivers who don’t want to be interrupted from driving. An automatic “Reply with Text Message” feature complements the aforementioned DND feature.
As it’s the case with modern infotainment system, Siri Eyes Free has been added for good measure. Compatible with devices from the Apple iPhone 4S onwards, Siri Eyes Free can do many things, including turn-by-turn navigation. One other feature inspired by the world of smartphones is a Drag and Drop menu bar, which lets drivers personalize the touchscreen controls to their liking. Anything else?
Why yes! On 2016 model year vehicles, SiriusXM Radio now boasts Tune Start. This feature starts the song from the beginning when passengers and drivers switch between their favorite pre-set satellite radio channels. As for the last mentionable update for the Uconnect 8.4AN infotainment system, we now get a Vehicle User Guide feature that will roll out with the 2016 Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger and Challenger.
