It's like the offroad pages all over again. Per the uconnect FAQ, it is supported (the actual Alexa Skill Library listing does not list the JL). https://www.driveuconnect.com/faq.html#alexaI contacted Jeep uConnect a while back and they said it would not be expanded beyond the vehicles that currently have it. Meaning: The Wrangler would not receive this ability.
Hopefully, someone will write an update or a hack. However, the uConnect App is very secure for the Wrangler.
Awesome, thanks for posting. It does work, but it’s pretty clunky. Do I need to confirm multiple times? I appreciate the security aspect of using your pin, but now I’m expected to speak my pin out loud? Novelty at best.Jeep have now sorted out the connection with Amazon Alexa and providing you have the 8.4 Connect system and an active SiriusXM Guardian connection, you can have Alexa "talk" to your Jeep. I tried it today and it works (finally). One of the keys to making it work is that there is a new Alexa skill just called "Jeep". If you try to use the original skill called "UConnect", it fails just like it did before (says there is no vehicle on your account). So, first, download the new "Jeep" skill to Alexa, link your Alexa and UConnect account and you should be in business. Here is an extract from the Alexa skill that has a few details:
• 2019 and newer Jeep Cherokee
• 2018 and newer Jeep Compass
• 2018 and newer Jeep Grand Cherokee
• 2018 and newer Jeep Renegade
• 2018 and newer Jeep Wrangler
• Must be equipped with the Uconnect 4C/4C NAV with 8.4-inch Display
• Must be registered for Uconnect + SiriusXM Guardian connected services*
Some of the available commands:
• “Alexa, ask Jeep to start my car.”
• “Alexa, ask Jeep how much gas is in my car?”
• “Alexa, ask Jeep to find the nearest gas station.”
• “Alexa, ask Jeep to send [address] to my car”
Here is a link to a YouTube video with a brief overview. It was this video that made me realize that there is a new skill called "Jeep" that must be used for this to work:
Rob - Do you have all the prerequisites - 8.4 UConnect and an active Sirius Guardian subscription, and did you load the new skill called "Jeep", as it won't work with the UConnect skill that was previously published. One example command that works for me is "Alexa - ask Jeep how much gas is in my car"Just tried it and says not available for my vehicle.
Everything except Jeep skill, I did the uconnect skill. I'll search for the jeep one now.
