The good people at Chrysler brought hundreds of automotive journalists and social savvy bloggers into historic Louisville, Kentucky to discover the all new 2015 Chrysler 200. The 2015 Chrysler 200 debuted a beautiful exterior design featuring the new “face” of the Chrysler brand. While the interior offers the Uconnect Access system leveraging advanced embedded cellular technology with the largest, intuitive and easy-to-use 8.4-inch touchscreen in its class.
With their hands on the wheel, Chrysler 200 customers also can use Uconnect Access to tap the power of the cloud. When a compatible (check UconnectPhone.com for device compatibility) Bluetooth mobile phone with the Message Access Profile (MAP) is paired, Uconnect Access will:
• Announce receipt of incoming texts
• Identify the senders
• “Read” the messages aloud
To respond or compose any new text, drivers need to simply dictate a message of 140 characters or less. The Uconnect system will send the message to a “cloud-based voice-recognition server,” that converts spoken words to text and “reads” it back for accuracy before sending verbatim. And it can all be done handsfree, without having to memorize any pre-approved messages. Drivers unsure of their destination and looking for popular locations around them can use their voice to conduct a Yelp search and simply say what they are looking for.
In Louisville, I linked up with Ashley Underdale with Uconnect Marketing to talk about the system and demonstrate how easy Uconnect can pair the power of your smartphone with the Chrysler 200 for the ultimate driving experience. Check out “How To” plug into Uconnect below:
