Just the Facts:
  • The 2013 SRT Viper, 2013 Ram 1500 pickup truck and the 2014 Fiat 500L will be among the first Chrysler vehicles to get a dealer-activated navigation system, said Chrysler at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show.
  • The factory-installed navigation system can be activated by a dealer days, weeks, months or years after the vehicle purchase, Chrysler said.
  • Pricing was not announced.

LAS VEGAS — The 2013 SRT Viper, 2013 Ram 1500 pickup truck and the 2014 Fiat 500L will be among the first Chrysler vehicles to get a dealer-activated navigation system, Chrysler said at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show.

The factory-installed navigation system can be activated by a dealer days, weeks, months or years after the vehicle purchase, Chrysler said.

Pricing was not announced. The navigation system functions can be activated in vehicles equipped with certain Uconnect systems.

Chrysler describes the setup as an improvement over portable devices, "which create clutter and require charging or smartphone data plans — or both."

Chrysler also said that it will offer complimentary Uconnect Access trials to registered owners of the 2013 Ram 1500 and 2013 SRT Viper. Uconnect Access is a new in-vehicle connectivity system that features cloud-based, hands-free, voice-activated texting.

The automaker will also add Internet radio capability to Uconnect Access. Chrysler said Uconnect Access Via Mobile arrives later this year. Vehicle applications will be revealed closer to launch.

Edmunds says: Chrysler gives consumers — especially those buying a used car — a big option when it comes to changing their minds about committing to a navigation system.
