No matter how much you love the Uconnect® features, sometimes you just need a little radio silence. So can you turn Uconnect® off? We’ll go over how to temporarily suspend Uconnect® functions in the following section.

Can You Turn Uconnect© Off?

By default, Uconnect® engages when you turn your key in the ignition. However, turning off or muting specific features is just as simple! Here’s how to silence text messaging or power down the infotainment screen and radio:

  1. Tap the “Phone” button.
  2. Say, “Setup, incoming SMS message announcement.”
  3. When asked if you want to turn it off, respond “Yes.”

Using voice commands, you can easily choose the Uconnect® functions you’d like to temporarily suspend, and then do so with just a few words. Having trouble disabling or activating any parts of Uconnect®? Reach out to the service department at Hendrick Dodge Cary for help.
