Few things grab your attention more quickly than flashing red and blue lights in your rearview mirror. Fortunately, we weren’t being pulled over for reckless speeding. The marketing minds at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) decided to use a 2016 Dodge Charger Police Pursuit vehicle to demonstrate their latest generation of Uconnect®, which features Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a very large 12.1-inch high-resolution touchscreen display.

“The Uconnect team is evolving Uconnect and making it even better,” said Joni Christensen, Head of Uconnect Marketing, FCA US LLC. “With the launch of the fourth generation of Uconnect systems, we are continuing to minimize the everyday stresses of busy lifestyles by providing drivers with a variety of ways to stay conveniently connected to their vehicles, while making every drive exceptionally informative, entertaining and unique.”

Designed exclusively for law enforcement, Uconnect 12.1 provides a fully integrated solution of a Charger Pursuit’s mobile command capabilities. The supersized touchscreen displays Uconnect radio and vehicle controls, with the option to toggle a police officer’s computer display via a menu bar at the top of the screen.
