Uconnect is a car audio device that enables hands-free, voice-activated phone communication for the driver. The Uconnect is fully integrated into the vehicle's audio equipment using the car speakers to project the sound of the call. Uconnect can connect to any phone equipped with Bluetooth "Hands Free Profile" Version 0.96 or higher. It is possible to link seven phones to the Uconnect at once, however, only one phone can be used at a time.


As of November 2010, the Apple iPhone 4 is the newest iPhone version available. It has both Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi technology. This iPhone uses iOs 4, a higher operating system than previous iPhones used. It comes equipped with Voice Control, which allows the user to speak commands such as who to call and what music to listen to. Another new feature of the iPhone 4 is the FaceTime video capability, where iPhone 4 users can video chat with other iPhone 4 or iPod Touch users. Older iPhone models such as the iPhone 3Gs are also compatible with Uconnect, as long as they have Bluetooth capability.


Cell phone users have multiple options when purchasing a BlackBerry phone. There are various models available, the most current being the Torch, Style, Curve, Pearl, Bold, Tour and Storm. Each of these phones comes with both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and are able to connect to the Uconnect device. The current BlackBerry 6 OS is available on three models: BlackBerry Bold 9780, BlackBerry Style 9670 and BlackBerry Torch 9800. Multiple other BlackBerry phones use the BlackBerry Device Software 5.0. Both of these operating systems include many useful applications such as GPS, BlackBerry Maps, e-mail and chat-style messaging.


Palm phones are also Uconnect compatible. There are many Palms to choose from, such as the Palm Pixi and Pixi Plus, Palm Pre and Pre Plus, and Palm Pre 2. They currently run on the HP webOS, but soon Palm users will be able to upgrade to HP webOS 2.0, which will simplify and streamline applications and tasks. Both families of Palm phones allow for true Web browsing; users can view full HTLM websites rather than simplified versions. The Palm Pre also has a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
