    Do we think FCA will update the 6.5 uconnect to support Apple car play? I have 2017 Trailhawk with the 6.5

    I really doubt they update the old 5 and 6.5 units. I hope we can retrofit the new 7”with CarPlay into the older Renegades.

    I would like it if they would but as a 2016 owner I have given up hope.

    I'm not even certain the 6.5 system can run CarPlay or Android Auto. For one thing, those systems require a touch screen interface that can understand pinch-to-zoom and similar commands... I don't believe the 6.5 system can do this. SO it isn't just a software issue, it's a hardware issue as well.

    Who knows, they might create an updated and compatible software in the future.

    Nah, you can get CarPlay on a resistive screen. Crutchfield lists 38 CarPlay stereos that fit the Renegade, and 27 of them are resistive, vs. only 11 capacitive (pinch/zoom, flick scroll, etc., like a phone screen).
