Users who are accustomed to Uconnect 4 or other infotainment systems may need some time to familiarize themselves with the new system.

Finally we are able to offer this to 2019 – 2021 Ram Trucks, but you won’t easily find this upgrade elsewhere, and is even marked by google as “NOT feasible upgrade.”
