Fiat Chrysler (FCA) will offer Apple’s Siri Eyes Free feature in the form of a complimentary software update in nearly 2 million vehicles from the 2013-2015 model years equipped with the necessary hardware.
“With the addition of the Siri Eyes Free feature for later model-year vehicles, more customers will have an opportunity to integrate their iPhones with Uconnect while keeping their hands on the wheel and their eyes on road," says Tricia Hecker, Global Head of Connected Services, FCA. “By adding Siri Eyes Free capability, customers will be able to use their voice to dictate and send messages, select specific songs, create reminder notifications, and set calendar entries.”
Drivers will simply push and hold the voice recognition button on the steering wheel until the Siri display appears on the 8.4” Uconnect touch screen and they hear the audible tones. Siri Eyes Free is compatible with an Apple iPhone 4s or later.
The new software update is available for the following vehicles in Canada and the U.S.:
- 2013-2015 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500
- 2013-2015 Dodge Viper
- 2014-2015 Dodge Durango
- 2015 Dodge Challenger and Charger
- 2014-2015 Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee
