All-new Uconnect Theater

With Uconnect Theater, passengers can watch movies, play built-in games and connect personal devices to surf the Internet. To quickly navigate through options, passengers can swipe through the touchscreens or use the included Bluetooth touchpad remote control.
The one-of-a-kind Uconnect Theater includes:

KeySense technology
Safe driving habits can be promoted and driver distractions can be limited with the available KeySense programmable key fob.

The DID offers a wide range of customization options, from a basic digital speed read out to more detailed vehicle status information, such as tire pressure, fuel economy, audio, warning messages and turn-by-turn navigation. Operation of the DID is intuitive and clearly communicated to users with easy-to-understand icons and instructions.
