There is Uconnect 5.0, Uconnect 8.4, and the Next Gen Uconnect 4. Uconnect 5.0 and Uconnect 8.4 are both previous generations of the system. The Next Gen Uconnect 4 will be the most recent version. Each generation of Uconnect has different features to a certain degree.
Upgrading your Uconnect System is essential for its security, as demonstrated by Chrysler's recent recall of vehicles after a safety scare. Owners looking to update their Uconnect Systems can do it by requesting a USB drive preloaded with the software, installing it themselves or taking it to a trusted dealership.
Setting up your Uconnect Payment Account allows you to make purchases from your vehicle (such as WiFi Hotspot) and can be used to ensure uninterrupted service at the end of the included trial period. Your Uconnect Payment Account is optional, but we recommend it so that you can enjoy the full benefits of the system.
