    FCA sucks.

    I will not be buying this vehicle at the end of my lease if no one has come up with a way to retrofit it with CarPlay. I will not spend the next decade tied to a crap factory nav system/media player.
    I feel the same way about other updates that are for every 2014 model except the 300 SRT.

    Correct. Apple CarPlay has specific hardware requirements that the UConnect RA3/4 systems do not posses. For starters, the screen resolution of these units is too low.

    While purchasing my 2017 Dodge Durango GT, the salesperson mentioned that I would be able to get CarPlay with a software update, is this accurate? I doubt this claim, but would be happy if this would be possible.

    Complete BS I'm guessing.

    The 2017 Durangos (possibly the 16s, I don't know) have the new Uconnect with capacitive touch. Apparently Dodge has decided to make the Challenger and Charger CarPlay ready, but not the Durango and other models. From what I've read it sounds like the new Uconnect system in the new Durangos has the ability to support Apple CarPlay, but Dodge hasn't done so yet. I tweeted them and they said "At this time, we don't have details on plans to expand this to other models, and I'm sorry for any inconvenience."

    Ugh.

    I'm wondering how the 2018 models are looking for CarPlay. That would be a great upgrade along with the new T shifter to replace the stupid dumb crappy Shifter knob.

    Frankly I'm ready to dump my Durango and move to something that's actually technology-aware. I absolutely hate the lack of CarPlay in my '16 Durango. The onboard nav system sucks, the maps are outdated (even though I have the latest software update) and I'm tired of the system barking at me that I'm speeding when, in fact, the freeway speed limits in my state increased 2 years ago. (Why not just turn it off? Because it's still helpful on surface streets where the speed limits are correct.)

    And while some other manufacturers are giving their prior-year customers an upgrade path to CarPlay (even Kia! FRIGGIN KIA!!!!!), mum is the word from FCA.

    Ford SUVs: CarPlay
    Chevy SUVs: CarPlay
    VW SUVs: CarPlay
    Honda SUVs: CarPlay
    Volvo SUVs: CarPlay
    Hyundai SUVs: CarPlay
    Kia SUVs: CarPlay
    Dodge SUVs: "Huh?"

    Idiots.
