  • Navigation: When you opt for the Uconnect® Navigation package, you’ll have the benefit of 3-D generated maps with turn-by-turn navigation. SiriusXM® Traffic Plus and Travel Link can also give you a boost with up-to-date weather and traffic reports.

Can You Turn Uconnect® Off?

The entire Uconnect® system is always on when your vehicle is on. However, you can turn off or mute certain aspects of the platform if you want to. The radio, for instance, can be muted and the screen can be turned off. You can turn off text message alerts by hitting the “Phone” button, saying “setup, incoming SMS message announcement” and responding “yes” when asked if you want it turned off. So, while you can turn off certain aspects of the Uconnect® platform, the entire system itself can not be turned off. Simply select the aspects you want on or off, and address those accordingly. Should you have any more questions about shutting off Uconnect®, don’t hesitate to ask the team at Sames Bastrop CDJR.
