Truck Thursday: 2019 Ram 1500 Uconnect ‘connects’ with Apple Car Play and Android Auto

Lighter, stronger, more capable.

The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 has already checked some very important boxes in taking a winning truck to a whole new level of capability and innovation.

But step inside and discover another leap forward in technology with the award-winning unique 12-inch dual screen Uconnect system. It opens up a whole new level of connection, convenience and personalized customization that will help you keep your eyes and your attention on the road … where they belong.

Two of the most popular apps in demand right now are Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and both are ready for you to pair with your phone on the 2019 Ram 1500 Uconnect system.

This week on #TruckThursday, FCA User Experience design manager Brad Gieske takes the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto apps for a spin.

And join us next week when Gieske shows how easily Uconnect navigation with Highway mode programs your destination with stops along the way to fuel up both you and your vehicle, or just take in points of interest.

Hi, I’m Betty Carrier Newman. I know – three names! Just who does she think she is? I’m a native Michigander; therefore, I love all things outdoors, like hiking and off-roading. I work in Communications with the Digital Media team. Some days I produce video shoots, write scripts, voice and edit video for features to post to our corporate and social media sites. Other times I’m strategizing with the brands I support – Ram, Jeep and Corporate – to come up with attention-grabbing ways to tell their unique stories. Then there’s the travel - to places like Moab, Utah, and the Rubicon Trail in California - to shoot (and enjoy) awesome off-road adventure that I then turn into exciting videos to post on our sites. Routine? Definitely not in my world! Challenges, creativity, cool cars and trucks, exciting places – yeah, they’re in there! Oh, the three names? In an earlier life I was hired as the first major-market female TV co-anchor for the NBC affiliate in Detroit – Channel 4. My name was Betty Carrier back then – until I married and added the ‘Newman.’ That’s my story and, yes, I’m really enjoying my FCA ride!
