    The factory Uconnect has the ability for SRT to track it and it will show you the vehicle location in the app on your phone. With the app on your phone you can lock and unlock your doors and remote start if your automatic.

    yes both-- uconnect access
    When you're in the car if you press the Assist button on the review mirror it will bring up the page on your nav, then you click on "uconnect care" and it connects you to a rep who will set your account up

    is UConnect the subscription service with a monthly fee after the first free year?
    I'd just put a "Tile" in the car somewhere. 1 time purchase on amazon and you get a few tiles you can use to put on / with an item to locate your wallet, keys, stolen Hellcat, significant other..etc
    No monthly fee. Cat gets swiped, you open the app on your phone and call the cops and tell 'em where it is.

    Yes, after one year, you need to renew for $149 if you want that to continue. IMO it is not worth it. Even if you have that, and you need them to locate your CAT, you have to jump through so many hoops, by the time that happens, your CAT is most likely long gone. Third party is probably the way to go.

    I'll renew it simply for the remote start capability. Stock remote start range sucks too much.
    $149 is one less night out on the town for the entire year ;)

    I just watched the "Tile" video on their website. It's bluetooth based. If I understand it correctly if you had one in your car and it got stolen once you flagged it as missing it would require the car to be in bluetooth proximity of another Tile user in order for it to report a location. If this is indeed how it works it's useless to track a stolen car.

    I've never used this thing but that's my understanding of how it works based on their video.

    All a crook would have to do is cut the power, thats my worry. You almost need something with its own power source.

    I had the LoJack installed when I bought the car. It's a one time fee. Just more for piece of mind, a friend of mine is a deputy sherif he has the device on his car to pick up the signal and it works great.
