Garmin adds new features for Chrysler Group vehicles

by Bill Cawthon on

Garmin International Inc. has presented its next-generation navigation system for Chrysler vehicles. The new software is part of the Chrysler Uconnect 8.4N infotainment system and includes several new features and enhancements. It is available for 2013 Chrysler 300, Dodge Journey, Charger and Dart vehicles.

The new features include 3D buildings and terrain views, improved traffic and routing functionalities, a refined user interface with enhanced colors and themes that are consistent with each vehicle brand and junction views that now cover more than 60,000 intersections across the U.S.

“Our partnership with Chrysler has been extremely successful over the last two years, gaining praise from consumers and industry experts alike for the unmatched level of ease of use and reliability of our navigation solution,” said Matt Munn, Garmin’s managing director automotive OEM. “We’re thrilled to now introduce new features to provide drivers even better orientation and road guidance with stunning 3D views and enhanced routing technology.”

Garmin’s in-car navigation in the Dodge Charger was recognized as “Highest Customer Satisfaction With Factory Installed Navigation Systems2” in the J.D. Power and Associates 2011 U.S. Navigation Usage and Satisfaction StudySM.

Bill Cawthon grew up in the auto industry in the 1950s. His Dad worked for Chrysler and Bill spent a number of Saturdays down on the plant floor at Dodge Main in Hamtramck. Bill is also the U.S. market correspondent for just-auto.com, a British auto industry publication, and a member of the Texas Auto Writers Association, which has named the Jeep Grand Cherokee the “SUV of Texas” several times and named the Ram 1500 as the “Truck of Texas” two years running.

Bill has owned five Plymouths (including the only 1962 “Texan”), one Dodge and one Chrysler and is still trying to figure out how to justify a Wrangler. He also has owned at least one of every 1:87 scale model of a Chrysler product. You can reach him directly at (206) 888-7324 or by using the form.
