Fix this pile of crap 1/5
By Bsnickname got tired of trying
Network error every freaking time. Complete crap
WAS a great app 1/5
Ive had this app on 2 different phones over the past year and a half since ive had my 2015 Ram. It was a great app, never had an issue, until the Uconnect system update in the truck. Ever since this, the app on the phone will only connect periodically. 90% of the time I attempt to connect iHeartRadio, Slacker, aha or pandora, the radio gives me a “Uconnect app server error”. I realize this is the free version, but shouldnt it match the hardware its made to connect with? Im just glad i didnt opt for the pay app or i would really be upset. Id love to hear a response from the developer on this. Thanks.
Not worth the money 1/5
I researched different remote start options on vehicles before purchasingy 2016 RAM. I was looking for a system that could be started from over a mile away. There are problems with this system going into “SLEEP MODE” and not coming out. The results are that I am not able to use this feature that I pay a yearly subscription for.
Horrible app 1/5
Not only does it drain ALL of the life from your phone battery, this app opens automatically every time you start your vehicle. If you need to unlock your doors or auto start I suggest you download it, use it and then delete it immediately.
How do i login 1/5
i got the app thinking i would just pair it up with my car but it's asking for a email and password and i've never mad an account for this so i'm wondering how to do so.
Limited poor design 1/5
By Disliked lies
I have a 2017 durango but can not use the service because the developer never looked beyond 50 states. Next time design a service that is universal to any location on the planet.
It’s okay. Could be a little faster when you request a command. Also auto launch, please give an option to turn that off.
Bring back the pandora app 1/5
Ridiculous y’all took it away. Need to bring it back.
Needs update 4/5
No love for the iPhone 8? Glitchy at best, keeps telling me I have entered a wrong password. Nope. Works fine on the iPhone 7. Need this app to work!!!!
It’s alright... 2/5
By Gixxxer guy
I agree with the 2nd review.. Needs gps location of car and so you can see if your car is really running.. an also be nice to move your mirrors in an out and open an close the sunroof.
A little slow at times 3/5
By Apps you
The app does need some updating. Overall it’s a ok app doesn’t run the best when on WiFi. Can’t leave feedback in the app basically it needs to be compatible with the new iOS developers need to keep a better updating schedule. Works the best just for unlocking, locking, starting, and stopping the auto start function. Don’t hope for a highly functional app just the basics.
Great app 5/5
I’ve had this app for almost a week with the iPhone 7. It’s not draining my battery any more than before I downloaded the app. Uconnect is great for sending commands to the vehicle including locations for the vehicles GPS. It’s also nice to unlock the vehicle from a remote location to grant someone access.
Great functionality and works flawlessly 5/5
By Research nut
Really nice features and nice GUI. Good design
Pay only app 1/5
This app requires a monthly or annual subscription. You can’t even use the remote start feature without paying. False advertising from Jeep.
Very nice 5/5
By Adil Alrehili
Change settings? 1/5
Why is there no ability to change the settings within the app?
Stop it with the pop ups! 1/5
This app worked fine for me and then all of a sudden... after a random update, I get pop ups every time I enter my car and also again after I plug it in to the usb charger connector cable. 2 pop ups every time I enter my car. This is not only annoying but also a huge distraction. I emailed Dodge and they responded and assured me that a fix was in the works... and this was 6+ months ago.
U “can’t” Connect 1/5
By Radar O'Reiley
My wife and I just bought two new Jeeps, and we downloaded Uconnect but the app will not even allow us to set up an account!
It goes directly to a sign in page asking for an email address and password with no provision to allow establishing an account.
It has a feature “forgot password?” but absolutely no provision to start an account.
Hey, Uconnect! You pathetic...
I watch 3/5
Make it available on the i watch as well. I would like to turn on my vehicle from my watch.
Awesome app 2/5
Great app has all things at your finger tips no matter your whereabouts.
But please bring this to Apple Watch. Please
Now my problem is why does it keep opening when I get in my car. That’s so annoying, get rid of that feature or I’m just going to delete the app. Messed up a good thing and why.
Apple Watch app 3/5
By Drunk Ideas Gone Bad
This might be worth the $150 if there was a Apple Watch app for the series 3 Watch
Works great with my 2017 Cherokee Limited! 5/5
I’m not sure what issues the others are having with the app starting up. Has not done that to me. Maybe it has been updated since but works fine with me with no issues for the past month. Shows me data about the car and UI is simple. I like that I can lock, unlock, autostart from anywhere. Shows me miles, fuel level, oil life, and tire psi. Able to find the exact location of the car as well.
No Apple CarPlay support for 2017 Ram 2500 LIMITED 1/5
It’s 2017 and for some reason you won’t support CarPlay in a $75k truck but works in a $25k charger that has the same head unit. I also have a 2017 Promaster, again no CarPlay.
App drain my iPhone 7 battery 2/5
I have the same issue. After installing the app to use with my 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee , I noticed the app drastically drains my phone battery. I ended up deleting the app. I contacted customer care , but they didn’t have an answer other than thanks for pointing out that to us. Don’t install this app if you want it a long lasting battery. I’m disappointed , no response nor a resolution is found.
Via mobile hardly ever works 1/5
I still use the pandora app as it sounds much better than streaming pandora over Bluetooth. It hardly ever works. It says uconnect app error. When I open the app, and go to via mobile setup, it says the phone is not ready. When I toggle the switch to use phone data, then it turns green and says ready to use. Please fix. I can't toggle the switch while i am driving.
Worst app to have 1/5
This app is all good when is free because it gives you the option to control remote your car. And I understand after the trial is over you gotta pay and that’s fare. But you’re telling me that even to use the app on pandora you gotta pay $14 subscription fee per month plus an additional $12 for your pandora subscription a total of $26 a month. Wdf do i have to pay to use pandora on my car when I’m already paying a subscription with them and using my data for it. The apps on the car shouldn’t be attached to a subscription with Uconnect. Free pandora or not on your mobile it should be free to use on your car - simple as that. Uconnect is just trying to make money out of everything that’s possible and that ain’t right. 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽
App is shut down 1/5
If you are having problems with this Uconnect app, that is Because the app has been shut down and you must download the newest version.
App is garbage 1/5
2016 ram 1500 with 8.4 uconnect. None of the mobile apps work. Locks you out of certain things when the vehicle is moving, even if you're a passanger. The app will automatically open and then go to a lock out screen if your moving. Very annoying "feature." App looks like it is formatted for the old 4" iPhones and then scaled. Virtually useless. The only feature that is nice is the remote start from your phone... If it actually works. Went almost a year without using this app in hopes that it would be maintained. It's maintained and updated about as well as uconnect takes care of the in car system.
Should be free 2/5
By Mic hug
The app offers basic features and worked fine when I needed it (offers peace of mind when I can’t remember if I locked the doors and I’m not near my vehicle); Remote start was convenient... which is why it gets 2 stars.
HOWEVER, at almost $150 for ONLY ONE YEAR, it’s not worth it. As long as the key fob works, you’d only be paying for convenience. The app should honestly be free. It’s a rip off.
Needs a lot of improvement 2/5
I do like that I can start my vehicle from this app as well as the locater function, but it takes forever for the car to start and sometimes it fails. In addition the app will just open randomly, which is annoying if I'm in the middle of using another app. Please invest in better developers
What is this? 1/5
I recently purchased a 2017 Grand Cherokee and although I love my vehicle, this companion app hasn’t worked for me once in the week I’ve had it. Either it doesn’t update my vehicle info or I can’t even log into the app. This is pretty disappointing considering I’m so pleased with my vehicle. Jeep deserves a better app.
Does what it’s suppose to do 4/5
I’ve been using this app for about two weeks with my new Dodge Ram. I think the app works very well. There is a lag from the time you request a command to be sent to the vehicle but this is normal when you consider that you aren’t using radio waves like in your hand held transmitter to send the signal. You are using an app to send a message to a cell tower to uconnect access which relays back to a cell tower then to your vehicle. Takes about a minute but such great technology. As for battery drain in my phone. I use an iPhone 7 which is about 2 months old. I see no difference in battery depletion. I would make One minor change for improvement which would be to have the app available to be linked on the Apple Watch.
App randomly opens for no reason 2/5
By Rob Doss 1
App works ok. There is a problem with it just randomly opening for no reason when you are in other apps on your phone. I have an Apple iPhone 6s Plus. It is very annoying, so much so I will not renew my subscription because I deleted the app from my phone. Fix the issues.
Where is the iWatch companion app? 4/5
By JDB(nickname already in use)
The app works well so far as I can tell. My only complaint is it takes a long time for the vehicle to receive the command. It would be nice to have an iWatch companion app.
Poor App Settings 1/5
The app barely ever works correctly. I can’t even connect to pandora on my car anymore because the via mobile disappeared.
Stopped working 2/5
UPDATE: 9/21/17 -- Fuel Level has stopped updating after latest Uconnect push update to my 2016 Cherokee Trailhawk. All other aspects of the App seem to be working. ??
Hate loathe detest this app 1/5
By Blah lame
I "required" this app to link my phone to my Jeep so it also exists on my jeep. Upon updating it in my vehicle it "decided" to reorganize my app display and my music. It alphabetized my music so my song layout doesn't match the album layout I previously had. Plus it also "decided" to automatically repeat my music folders instead of going on to the next folder upon finishing one folder. Yeah, I totally want to listen to one folder over and over when I have over 100 folders with over 2000 songs on all of them. I'd give this app a 5 pile of feces rating and I loathe it so much I shudder to give it even one star. There may be a way to reset my settings the way they were, but I'm usually "driving" when I use my vehicle so attempting to figure that out is all but convenient... 👎👎👎👎👎
So far not working well. iPhone 6s 3/5
I just bought a brand new Jeep Renegade. I was pretty excited to use this app. First disappointment was there was not a remote start feature for my car. Secondly, it only works 1 out of 10 times I try it. I will continue using to see if it improves. DEVS: I want to give you guys a high five for replying to a lot of the commenters here. It's rare to get a response on reviews. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼🤛🏻
Pandora never works 2/5
By Frank M'
You need this app in order to have pandora launch in the truck, but once I open this app and try and get pandora to open and play, it might work 10% of the time. It's horrendous
The Future Is Here 5/5
By Evan 41
Amazing app for what it is. Yes, they app has bugs and yes, they could add more features. I've worked the app into my morning wake up routine. I wake up, roll over, open the app and get the car warmed up for me. Nothing is better then getting into a car with a heated steering wheel and seats prepped for enjoyment. Using the GPS feature of the app makes navigation mindless. Typing in the address on your phone, send it to your car, in a second your destination pops up on your cars screen.
Other reviews seem to have small issues and give the app 1 star, shame on them. I hope their reviews don't skew future users from downloading this great app. Creating an account to control your car isn't to much to ask for.
What I'd like to see from this app is maybe a climate control and radio feature added. If you'd really want to blow our minds maybe a function to control driver seat position memory.
I'm a huge fan and constant supporter of the app. Can't wait to see where this app goes in the future. Keep on improving!
App auto launches when you turn the car on. Major pain if you already have an app open. Also to close it each time. Lastly, Pandora doesn't stay connected for long and requires a password to reconnect
App opening after car is started?? 1/5
I don't get why this app needs to open by itself after I turn my car on. The purpose of the app seems to be to allow me to have the control to turn my car on/off and unlock/lock but if I'm already in my car and start it manually, the app turning on is pointless. And also killing my phone battery. PLEASE FIX!
App works fine but stops music when open. 2/5
This app has worked fine for me. My only issue is my music always pauses/stops when I launch the app to change a setting. This app should have zero control over the music settings on my iPhone. If there was a way to override this on my phone I would change this but I believe it's due to a programming error with this app by the developer. Please fix!
App barely works and the linked apps in the car are finicky at best. I've got to restart the phone app and car apps multiple times to get them to work together, and then sometimes the car app won't come up after navigating away from it. (So if you're using Pandora or Spotify in the background and then use your navigation like a normal person, you can't change your Pandora station ever. Awesome.) I wish I could give this less than one star.
Constantly Pops Up On It's Own Very Annoying 1/5
This app has some useful information but it's a royal PITA when it constantly pops up every time I'm trying to do something. Needs a fix!
Getting a Tahoe thanks to this app 1/5
By Irfan k
Worst of the worst , really just keeps disappointing, cannot connect to pandora always have to log in , doesn't have "passenger option" so have to pull over to log in to use phone, won't connect to phone half the time , just nonsense
Really? The app opens every time I start the car? 1/5
Further edit: I'm uninstalling. I didn't realize it but we had a trial subscription that included the remote start feature. An annual sub is $150, which is not worth it for us just to be able to start the vehicle remotely.
I can still is the hands-free function in the car for voice calls and play media on my phone (or tablet).
Edit: Please halt the insanity...the app opens up when my phone connects via Bluetooth...then again when I plugged it in? P
Please roll this back or update this, it has zero functionality.
The app does so little--which is totally ok. Remote start and unlock are great features.
So with the app doing so little, why does it need to automatically open when the car and phone connect?
It's already a pain that the car defaults to my phone when plugged in--which might be Chrysler and not an app feature--but now the app opens up as well. :(
App opens by itself. 1/5
By 1500 longhorn
Since the April update, every time I travel in my RAM 1500 the access app opens by itself. I don't even have to touch the iPhone and it opens. Have called customer service and until more people complain, they won't address the situation.
App is draining battery on iPhone because it keeps opening. I have to delete the app. Not worth the trouble it is causing. It is great before the last update.
Developers contacted me to relate that they are aware of the issue and are working to resolve the issue. Once the issue is resolved, I will definitely reinstall the app.
It is a great app. Coming out of a sporting event, I could locate my truck in a large parking lot with no trouble.
Installed the app again on 6/22, issue still not resolved. Had to delete the app again. Too much of a drain on iPhone battery. It is a shame because it could be a great app if it didn't open by itself.
With the recent update to the Uconnect system, I thought the developers would have resolved the issue of the app automatically opening. Nope!!!!! App still opens by itself and drains battery. I probably won't purchase another year of Uconnect Service. Quite disappointed. Sufficient time to correct problem.
Love it 5/5
I just got a new Jeep andI had no clue what this was or how to use it. Very simple and user friendly for this 65 year old! Thanks!
Useless popup - constantly 1/5
Someone needs to be fired. This app is nonstop invasive.
The annoying constant pop ups of this app renders the entire Bluetooth function of the vehicle useless. I have unpaired my phone from the vehicle and STILL get a reminder to register/login every time I plug in the phone.
1.5 stars - great work FCA.
