On-board Vehicle User Guide debuts in the 2016 Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger and Chrysler 300

VIN-specific application lets drivers view owner's manual on their 8.4-inch touchscreen

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MI -- Oct. 26, 2015: Tweddle Group has partnered with the FCA US Uconnect team to create the first mass-market in-vehicle user guide with touchscreen delivery.

Debuting in the 2016 Dodge Charger, Challenger and Chrysler 300, the Vehicle User Guide application lets drivers access their owner's manual via the 8.4-inch touchscreen as a quick reference guide for vehicle information. The Uconnect and powertrain portions of the application are dynamic and will only present VIN- and vehicle-specific information. The content can be kept current thanks to over-the-air updates.

"Vehicle User Guide takes the major technological trends of the last 20 years and ties them together to create a product that's exciting and profoundly practical," said Paul Wilbur, Tweddle's Chief Executive Officer. "Tweddle can leverage decades of experience delivering owner's information with proprietary technology to give people the exact information they need, when they need it, in whatever manner they prefer."

Tweddle has a long history of innovation and has truly come into its own in the digital era, reinventing itself with great agility as the information space evolves; they were first to release owner's information videos on DVD and created the first vehicle owner's info mobile app. The Vehicle User Guide application marks yet another major innovation in the connected-car sector, further demonstrates why Tweddle is a premier player in owner's information services and is Tweddle's latest project with the FCA US Uconnect team, which is responsible for FCA US operation's connected-car platform.

"Uconnect is dedicated to delivering features that are not only innovative and useful, but also easy to use," said Joni Christensen, Head of Uconnect Marketing, FCA US LLC. "The Vehicle User Guide enhances the owner experience by providing access to vehicle information right from the Uconnect Touchscreen. Whether it be a question about the radio or warranty information, all the answers are right at your fingertips."
