Avoid holiday gridlock with Uconnect and Waze

 

Holiday hustle and bustle? It’s more enjoyable if you avoid the fun-sapping traffic gridlock.

Owners of ChryslerDodgeJeep®, Ram and FIAT vehicles with a Uconnect 4, 4C or 4C NAV system can cut the chance of imitating a lawn display in the parking lot by taking advantage of the Waze traffic app with their Uconnect display.

Waze is now available for owners to use from their Uconnect 4, 4C or 4C NAV system that supports Apple CarPlay. Previously, Waze could be used from an Android phone plugged into a Uconnect system compatible with Android Auto. Now you can also use Apple CarPlay and an iPhone to run Waze on your Uconnect 4, 4C or 4C NAV touchscreen.

Waze, a navigation app, helps plot the fastest route to your destination, taking into account traffic flow, construction detours and crash-induced slowdowns. The app collects real-time data from users and offers to change the routing in response to changes in traffic conditions.

No update is needed to your Uconnect system, so long as it is a 4, 4C or 4C NAV system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Apple users should make sure they are running iOS 12 on their iPhone and that the latest version of the Waze app is installed.

That’s just one of the ways Uconnect can put some jolly in your holiday travels. Learn more about Uconnect at www.driveuconnect.com.
