How to Connect a Cellular Phone to a Uconnect Bluetooth in a Car

By Stephen A. Powell

Talking on your cell phone while driving can be absolutely necessary in the case of an emergency, or if you are pressed for time when dealing with an important matter. Because vehicle safety is of the utmost importance, you should never drive one-handed or fumble around with your phone while operating your car. Some Chrysler vehicles feature Uconnect, a system that works with your cellular phone's Bluetooth hands-free profile. The connection instructions differ slightly depending on whether or not you purchased a Mopar post-market unit or are using a factory-installed system.
