RAM pickup trucks are primarily known for their robust capabilities and durable platforms. These popular vehicles also come with cutting-edge digital technologies, like the Uconnect multimedia system, available in light-duty and heavy-duty editions.

Mobile Applications With Remote Commands for RAM Pickup Trucks

The latest RAM 1500, 2500, and 3500 models are equipped with infotainment systems that operate on the proprietary Uconnect software. Originally developed by Chrysler, this digital technology has been widely available for dozens of models from this automotive giant. If you'd like to start the engine block of your RAM model remotely, you must download the appropriate Uconnect application on your smartphone. SiriusXM Guardian is a third-party service that's smoothly integrated into a new RAM vehicle's infotainment system.

You could use the Remote Vehicle Start function through this premium suite that's powered by one of the world's leading providers of satellite radio entertainment. Whether you're sitting at home or working in an office space, you could easily turn on the powerful engine of your compatible RAM pickup truck. The SiriusXM Guardian app also provides remote activation of the vehicle's horn and lights so that you won't roam around aimlessly in a crowded parking lot. If you can't see the lights or hear the horn, simply activate the Vehicle Finder functionality that shows your RAM truck's precise location on a colored map.

Uconnect Multimedia Suite

The Uconnect multimedia suite also works well with some of the world's leading virtual assistants. You can tell Google Assistant to turn on the engine of your RAM model remotely. Similarly, the Amazon Alexa Skill technology fulfills your commands in real-time. You will need a valid Vehicle Owner Account ID to sync Amazon Alexa with the Uconnect suite. Additionally, this digital concierge is already built into the Uconnect infotainment system inside a RAM pickup truck's colossal cabin.

For instance, you could tell Amazon Alexa to tune into specific radio channels on SiriusXM Satellite Radio. The Remote Vehicle Start option is only available from the Uconnect SiriusXM Guardian Convenience Package and Convenience + Security Package. You will not get any advanced remote services from the basic Assist Package. Nevertheless, this entry-level plan comes with the SOS Call and Roadside Assistance Call. You could activate the appropriate SiriusXM Guardian plan by pressing a designated electronic button on the rearview mirror inside your RAM pickup truck. A certified SiriusXM Guardian agent will verify and activate your subscription when you're behind the wheel.
