      Also, while I haven't looked into it, but before anyone suggests it. I doubt either of these could be added via software update. I would bet that both (at the very least Apple) require some kind of specific hardware.

      since the dart is dead, and it doesnt sound like we can buy new hardware and software to retrofit our darts, guess this news about appleplay is now worthless to existing dart owners, lol....

      It is possible you'll see it in the next Dart...probably not, but its worth hoping for. Not that it will matter to me..I just bought a new Dart so it will be quite a while before I look to get a new vehicle.

      The 2016's will have a firmware update that will enable CarPlay. the 2016's already have Siri eyes Free so that means the Uconnect system in the 2016's can handle the iPhone integration that is necessary for Carplay

      The 2016 Dart is still using the same Uconnect hardware as has been in use since the Dart went into production in 2012, the RE2/RB5. This unit does not support Siri Eyes Free, at least not according to Uconnect. That feature is only available on the RA3/RA4 units, commonly referred to as Uconnect 8.4A and Uconnect 8.4AN, which are used in most other FCA vehicles with the 8.4" touchscreen. This is a more advanced system than the Uconnect 8.4/8.4N found in the Dart and Journey (the only FCA vehicles still using the RE2/RB5).

      Unless by some miracle they actually update the Dart and incorporate the newer Uconnect hardware into it, no Dart will ever natively support Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, or whatever other vehicle/phone integration systems are out there. Even if they did make such an unlikely change, no Dart that is currently in existence would benefit from it, as our hardware just can't support it.

      You are correct . I misread some uconnect information. Seems the new Chally and Chargers are the only Siri eyes free vehicles

      Any vehicle that uses the RA3/RA4 supports it. For Dodge, that includes the Challenger, Charger, Durango, and Viper but excludes the Dart and Journey (the Grand Caravan uses does not use a Uconnect 8.4 at all). The Chrysler 200 and 300 also use the RA3/RA4, as do the Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee, and the RAM 1500. As far as I am aware, the Dart and Journey are the only vehicles in FCA's lineup still using the RE2/RB5 Uconnect 8.4.
