I have the uconnect system in my Patriot and love it....

I have had some peopel complain and say there is back round noise but whatever.

the other thing I noticed is it seems to cuase my cell phone battery to drain quicker.

Otherwise it's awesome!!

The reason your phone drains quicker is because it is running the bluetooth chip and that consumes a great deal of juice. If you don't want your phone to drain down all you have to do is turn the bluetooth off when you are not wanting to use the uconnect, otherwise, every time you get in the car with the bluetooth on it will be draining.

I was under the impression mine came with u-connect..I ws quite dissappointed when I came to realise it was not hooked up. Is it just a part from mopar that I can add myself?

yes - Mopar offers an add-on kit that basically has a little black box that plugs in between the radio and the radio harness and then a button and a mic connect to the wire harness as well.

It's about a $200 kit
