  • Voice-Command: Voice-command allows you to make calls, reply to text messages, set up navigation, select music without taking your hands off the wheel.
  • Navigation: When you opt for the Uconnect® Navigation package, you’ll have the benefit of 3-D generated maps with turn-by-turn navigation, so you can easily find your way to Taylor, TX’s best restaurants and beautiful parks. SiriusXM® Traffic Plus and Travel Link can also give you a boost with up-to-date weather and traffic reports.

How Does Uconnect® Work: Can You Turn Uconnect® Off?

In order to allow you access to its features at all times, Uconnect® is on when your vehicle is on, but many aspects of the system can be switched off, muted, or otherwise disabled when the situation calls for it. The radio can be muted, the screen can be turned off, and text message alerts can be turned off by pressing the “Phone” button, saying “setup, incoming SMS message announcement” and responding “yes” when asked if you want it turned off.
