Alfa Romeo Stelvio Interior  

If you've heard of automotive infotainment systems at all, you've heard about Uconnect. It's used in many different vehicles today, including Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, and FIAT. These vehicles benefit from Uconnect's award-winning connected platform that turns your interior touchscreen devices into full-fledged connected powerhouses. They help you easily stay in touch, just with a tap of the screen.

How Do I Know When It's Time to Update Uconnect?

Uconnect is like any other software platform. To optimize its functionality, it has to be updated frequently, either on your phone or on your interior touchscreen. Thankfully, you can now update Uconnect easily with your computer, your Uconnect system, and a 4GB USB drive. First, you'll want to visit the Uconnect Software Update site and enter your VIN number to see if an update is available.

If an update is available, plug the USB into your computer and follow the prompted directions. Through the Uconnect Software Update site, you'll have the option to follow a tutorial that explains how to download the software update or to download the update directly to your browser and save it to your USB.

Once the Uconnect software update is downloaded onto your USB, take the USB to your vehicle. During the updating process, it's important that the USB remains connected and your car remains on and parked until the software update is complete. Interrupting the updating process by disconnecting the USB or by turning the car off can cause the system to become inoperative.

When the update is complete, the Uconnect system will reset and return to its normal functionality. At this point, verify the remaining prompts on the screen and remove the USB from the media hub.
