Talking My Favorite Feature

Of all the features my Ram has, and it has a boatload, I'd have to say my absolute favorite is the HDD on the radio. I've got 948 songs loaded on it and haven't listened to the yammering of DJ's or commercials in weeks.

I'd have to say my second favorite feature is the remote start. When its hot here, I just leave the temp control in Auto and when I hit the remote start its nice and comfy in minutes.

Hmmmmm..... mine, as of this minute (a+d+d is bad) would be the 4x4. Then......the towing ability that my truck possess. I'll let you know if that changes in the next 5 min!

I agree. HDD is my favorite feature thus far. Still learning the Uconnect system, that could become my next favorite.

Can you clarify your question? I have it and use it whenever I'm driving. Only down side is you have to manually activate it to make a call or answer a call, otherwise its all voice response. Very cool.

True, but when you're 5'4", any button that is not right in front of you or even on the wheel, is a distraction unless you drive with the seat right on top of the wheel, which I don't.

One other thing about the uconnect. Unlike most aftermarket blue-tooth devices, you can speak in a normal tone and it uses the car speakers so you can hear who you are talking to. No feed back/echo either.

While most aftermarket blue-tooth devices have the ability to "transmit" through your radio, you have to tune the radio to a specific frequency to use it. Uconnect is hard wired into the system and just overrides the radio.

Default Favorite feature as of this post

The ride is the best, followed closely by the room in my truck. Then I would say the Uconnect and the tow package, the Alpine 10 speaker stereo, the storage cubbies in the floor and under the seat, the Power of the 5.7, the Hill assist comes in handy at times, the park assist(wish I had it one the front bumper also).

I like this truck!

Enjoy the ride
