Does the Jeep Compass Have Android Auto?

The 2020 Jeep Compass is a rugged vehicle that continues the Jeep tradition of style and practicality. It’s got a comfortable and contemporary interior, and the power to take you almost anywhere. The Jeep Compass boasts all the technology drivers expect from a 21st-century vehicle, with connectivity and control that let you drive into the future. 

The Jeep Compass Has Android Auto & More

Jeep continues to be on the cutting edge of automotive technology. Inside the Compass, you’ll find an available 4G hotspot and a vibrant touch screen that gives drivers easy access to all the vehicle’s connectivity features.

Jeep’s UConnect lets you start your vehicle remotely, view your vehicle’s location on your smartphone to find it, look up locations at home and transfer directions to your vehicle, and an SOS call that notifies responders of an emergency. The Compass also features Android Auto for full integration of your smartphone. 

Android Auto

Android Auto is a must-have feature for Android smartphone users and is standard on the 2020 Jeep Compass. The Uconnect system’s touchscreen allows you to access all aspects of your phone through your car, including texts, calls, and playlists. 

Google Assistant

One of the top features of Android Auto is Google Assistant integration. Use your voice to accomplish tasks and keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. Get help with any aspect of your day, including checking the weather, finding directions, or asking Google to play your favorite podcast on Spotify. Anything Google Assistant does for you can now be done hands-free in Jeep Compass. 

Navigation

Get anywhere you need to go simply by speaking a command. Say “Hey Google, take me home” and you’re instantly directed to the quickest route. Turn by turn voice directions ensure that you’ll never be lost, wherever your Compass takes you. You also get real-time traffic alerts from Waze and Google Maps, all displayed on the Compass’s large touchscreen.

Entertainment

Great entertainment helps you enjoy the ride, and Android Auto gives you full access to your entire media library and more. You can pause your playlist, repeat a song, or listen to your favorite audiobook, all by using your voice. Entertainment options with Android Auto include:

  • Playing music
  • Hearing the news
  • Listening to audiobooks
  • Enjoying podcasts

Text and Talk

Android Auto lets you stay fully connected with all your contacts, simply by using your voice. Ask Google to read your text messages to you, and you can easily respond and send texts safely while driving. Hands-free calling is the law in many states, and Android Auto lets you call anyone just by asking. 

Compatibility

Android Auto works with phones that have Android 9 or above installed. Over 500 vehicles and stereos are supported, with more being added every day. With Android 10, Android Auto is built right in, so you don’t need to install anything to start using it. In the Jeep Compass features Bluetooth, so your Android phone will connect wirelessly to the system. Android Auto is compatible with most apps available in the Google Play store.

Apple CarPlay

The Compass also has iPhone users covered with Apple CarPlay. Just like with Android Auto, your driving experience is fully integrated with your iPhone. This keeps you and your passengers safer on the road with hands-free operation and voice commands. Apple CarPlay features include access to your iTunes library, suggestions from Siri, your calendar, maps, entertainment, and more. It will also read your text messages to you, and safely make hands-free phone calls. 

Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration are just the beginning of all the technological features in the 2020 Jeep Compass.
