Right now, unfortunately, they dont do much. If you register with Uconnect, you'll get Bing, which is basically a search engine. Supposedly Pandora and a few more apps are coming. Also, if you have a smart phone, you can download the Uconnect app on your phone. With the app, you can lock/unlock doors, remote start, etc. Pretty sure you have to have remote start on your truck to begin with to use remote start on your phone.
The Uconnect also allows to send and receive texts through your radio.
Here's a link to the Uconnect site.
Hope that helps you a bit.
