Fiat-Chrysler introduces “UConnect Vehicle User Guide” app for 2017 Pacifica minivan

Published: March 21, 2016 | Auburn Hills, MI

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica now features the Uconnect Vehicle User Guide which is a pre-installed and complimentary application that allows drivers to easily view and explore their owner’s vehicle information via the Uconnect 8.4-inch touch screen. Hyundai provides a similar app through its Virtual Guide smartphone and tablet app that shows the owner information about things, icons and instruments that are seen through the camera of the devices.

The Uconnect Vehicle User Guide application debuted first in the 2016 Dodge Charger, Challenger and Chrysler 300.


At a touch of a button, drivers can access the Vehicle User Guide application located in the Uconnect apps manager menu and use it as a quick reference guide. Owners find vehicle information using various methods, including browse by category, discover vehicle via visual search, search by text keyword or search via traditional index. For the browse by category feature, the main menu is comprised of four key categories:

  • Vehicle Operation – operating instructions for key functions, such as driving controls, comfort and convenience controls, safety and security, utility and reference essentials for new owners
  • Uconnect Radio, Phone & Navigation – operating instructions for key functions, such as radio and audio controls, phone pairing and usage, navigation and map routing and voice commands
  • Vehicle Maintenance – inspection and maintenance information for key categories, such as maintenance schedules, fluids and capacities, tire pressures and care recommendations
  • Emergency & Support – emergency and reference information for key categories, such as customer and roadside assistance, warning lights and indicators, emergency procedures and vehicle warranty coverage

The Uconnect and Powertrain portions of the application are dynamic and will only present VIN and vehicle-specific information. The content also can be updated over-the-air so the owner information will remain current.
