As a modern-day vehicle owner, you can download mobile apps to keep track of information about your vehicle. Two of these apps are the Jeep app and the Mopar app. Below, we explain what each app does and how to decide which is best for you.
Interface and Vehicle Compatibility
The Jeep app and the Mopar app have lots of similarities. The Jeep app is like a rebranded Mopar app designed to appeal specifically to Jeep owners. While the Jeep app is best for Jeep owners, the Mopar app appeals to drivers of vehicles from different auto manufacturers. You will find the Mopar app easy to use if you own a Fiat, SRT, Dodge, Ram, Jeep, or Chrysler vehicle.
Both apps have a user-friendly interface with simple navigation features, and they both look the same on Android and Apple devices. The Jeep app has nine menu items, while the Mopar app has 10. Both apps are compatible with vehicle models that are from 2011 or later. If you have a vehicle that’s from 2010 or earlier, you won’t be able to use the Jeep or Mopar apps as the original developers intended.
Most new Ram, Jeep, Dodge, and Chrysler vehicles come with the Uconnect infotainment system. This system is standard and doesn’t cost anything beyond what you pay for your car. It offers Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and lets you play music and podcasts, make calls, send texts, and pull up directions via your mobile phone.
As a vehicle owner with the Uconnect infotainment system, you also have the choice to pay a small monthly fee for the Uconnect Access subscription. This subscription provides various remote services that let you connect with your vehicle like never before. For instance, with this subscription, you can remotely lock, unlock, and start your car. You can also use your Access subscription to obtain remote services like stolen vehicle assistance, a drive rating report, a vehicle finder, and “Send ‘N Go” smartphone navigation.
You may be better off with the Mopar app if you’re a Uconnect Access subscriber and have the corresponding Uconnect app. This is because when you leave the Uconnect Access app to access vehicle information, it automatically leads you to the Mopar app. Because of this direct connection, some vehicle owners prefer to use the Mopar app over the Jeep app. You can still use the Jeep app as a Uconnect Access subscriber, but you may have to follow additional steps to open it from the Uconnect app.
Find a Dealership Near You
You can use the Jeep and Mopar apps to find a dealership near you. Both apps can use your current location to locate a reputable dealership. The apps may present you with several options to choose the one you prefer. Once you find the place you want to go to, you can save it within the app so that you can easily reference it in the future.
Whichever dealership you select, you can interact with it in several ways. For example, you can schedule a service appointment, and you can also call the dealership without having to look up its phone number. Just touch a button within the app, and it’ll initiate the phone call for you.
If you’re in the Lewisville area, the Jeep and Mopar apps may both direct you to our dealership at Huffines CJDR Lewisville. Whether you want to schedule a service, are looking for a mechanical part, or need additional assistance, our team can help.
Pull Up Maintenance Records
If you can’t remember the last time you got an oil change or rotated your vehicle’s tires, there’s no need to worry. You can download the Jeep or Mopar app to help you keep track of all your maintenance records. Whenever you’re unsure of your last service date, just pull up your vehicle’s records within either app. The Jeep app stores this information under the “My Garage” tab, and the Mopar app has a similar collection of data. These records help ensure that you bring in your vehicle for maintenance on time and keep your vehicle in tip-top shape.
Retrieve the Owner’s Manual for Your Specific Vehicle
The hard copy of your owner’s manual can take up precious space in your glove box, so many vehicle owners choose to ditch it the first chance they get. Thankfully, the Jeep and Mopar apps let you become a more responsible vehicle owner and digitally access the correct manual for your vehicle. Once you log in to either app and scan your vehicle identification number, you can pull up your vehicle-specific manual. Here, you can access important information regarding maintenance recommendations and troubleshooting.
Receive Roadside Assistance and Accident Support
If you find yourself stranded with a flat tire, you can use the Jeep and Mopar apps to request roadside assistance. Both apps can also send towing services and other help if you’re stuck on the side of the road.
Stay Informed of Safety Recalls and Notifications
When you have the Jeep and Mopar apps, you don’t have to do much work to stay on top of the latest safety recall and notifications. The apps will alert you whenever a memory relating to your vehicle is released. After getting a recall message, you can visit your local dealership’s service center so that its team can address the issue and make your vehicle safe for the road.
Which App Is Best for You?
Both apps are similar in functionality, so the one you pick often boils down to personal preference. If you’re a Uconnect subscriber, you may want to use the Mopar app, as it has a direct connection to the Uconnect app. Jeep owners may feel more comfortable with the Jeep app, as it was specifically created for Jeep vehicles using the Mopar app as inspiration.
If you’re looking for a new vehicle to use with either the Jeep or Mopar app, you can visit our dealership at Huffines CJDR Lewisville.
