Default Chrysler UConnect wins AOL Autos Technology of the Year Award

Filed under: Technology, Chrysler



The first annual AOL Autos Technology of the Year Award has been won by Chrysler's upgraded UConnect system.

Over 35 entries were considered and narrowed down to six finalists in three categories: Connectivity, Telematics and Active Safety. The judges, which included editors from AOL Autos, Autoblog and Engadget, as well as a number of other auto and tech journalists and luminaries, chose UConnect over the MyFord Mobile app, Audi Connect with Google Maps, Cadillac CUE, Honda's LaneWatch technology and Nissan's Tire Pressure Alert and Refill System. Even readers who were polled on which technology should win chose UConnect.

AOL Autos Editor in Chief David Kiley remarked that Chrysler's UConnect deserved the first Technology of the Year Award not because of what it does, but for how UConnect performs every time it's used. Kiley went on to say UConnect works the way it's supposed to, fills a need and puts a smile on your face. By meeting those requirements, UConnect very much deserved AOL Auto's first Tech of the Year award.

Accepting the trophy was Marios Zenios, head of connectivity for Chrysler. The official announcement was made today, Wednesday, on the Engadget stage at CES in Las Vegas.Chrysler UConnect wins AOL Autos Technology of the Year Award originally appeared on Autoblog on Wed, 09 Jan 2013 15:43:00 EST.

I guess you have not tried an Samsung Galaxy Note ! with the Jelly Bean update. Will not stay paired and nothing can be done. Is there going to be an update for 2012 Chrysler 300 with the RB5(Ithink that is the code of the newer 8.4 inch screens) with Uconnnect and Nav

Typical hype without knowing the details.

Identifying phones that are compatible with the 2013 Town and Country 730 Nav - Uconnect is almost non existent.
(38 for T-Mobile when Blue-connect the parent of Uconnect lists close to 100)

You would think they could get it right in a year.
