Truck Thursday: 2019 Ram 1500 Uconnect Navigation Is Road-trip Ready When You Are

Blue skies, warm temps, open road ahead. Summer road-trip season is in full swing!

Road trippers tend to have their own tried-and-true recipe for making the miles go by faster and feeling more relaxed arriving at their destination.

But, as with any recipe, there’s always room for improvement. And that’s just what the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 has done with the Uconnect system navigation display!

FCA User Experience Design Manager Brad Gieske is back this #TruckThursday to show how easy it is to program your road trip from start to finish while also adding in plenty of options to refuel, stop off for your favorite hamburger or take in some off-the-beaten-path sites along the way, eliminating the stress of endless searching en route. Start ‘cool,’ stay ‘cool,’ arrive ‘cool’ with the award-winning 2019 Ram 1500 Uconnect navigation system, keeping your road trip on track.

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!
