To change the background on a Uconnect system in a car, follow these general steps. Please note that the specific steps may vary depending on the make and model of your vehicle and the version of Uconnect software it uses. These instructions are for the Uconnect systems commonly found in Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram vehicles.
- Access the Uconnect System: Start your vehicle and access the Uconnect system by pressing the Uconnect button on your dashboard or steering wheel. This will bring up the Uconnect main menu on the touchscreen.
- Access the Settings Menu: Navigate to the “Settings” or “Setup” menu. The exact wording may vary slightly, but it should be something similar.
- Choose Display Settings: Within the Settings menu, look for an option related to “Display” or “Screen.” Select it to access display-related settings.
- Change Background: Look for an option like “Change Background” or “Wallpaper.” Select it to access the wallpaper options.
- Select a New Background: You will likely be presented with a list of pre-installed background images. Choose the one you want, or if you have the option, select “Custom” to use your own image. If you select “Custom,” you may be prompted to connect a USB drive with the image you want to use.
- Adjust Settings: Depending on the Uconnect version, you may have additional options to adjust the way the background image is displayed, such as scaling or positioning.
- Confirm Your Selection: Once you have selected the background image and made any desired adjustments, confirm your selection. The system will apply the new background.
- Exit the Menu: Exit the settings menu or go back to the main Uconnect screen.
Please note that some older Uconnect systems or specific vehicle models might not support changing the background image. In such cases, you may need a software update or an aftermarket solution to achieve this customization.
Always refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for specific instructions related to your Uconnect system, as features and menus may vary between different models and software versions.
