Kia’s UVO Connect app has been updated with enhanced graphics, revised menus and added functionality for an improved user experience

The app allows users to remotely access vehicle information such as trip data and statistics, vehicle location, and to lock or unlock their car.

EV owners can use the app to set climate control levels, view their vehicle’s charging status, plan smart charging schedules, and check the range radius.

Drivers can also use the in-car UVO Connect system to pre-set satellite navigation routes, change vehicle settings such as radio and Bluetooth preferences, and check traffic information, parking availability and fuel station and EV charge point details.

The updated UVO Connect app features new icons with enhanced graphics to aid use, while a new customisable home menu offers shortcuts to frequently used functions for easier in-app navigation. Users can also check their vehicle’s connection status and more easily view calendar appointments and weather information. A revised settings menu enhances security and the user experience further by utilising haptic feedback and featuring improved biometric identification.

Customers can also access the ‘Last Mile Navigation’ and ‘Valet Parking Mode’ functions directly from the app’s home screen when activated on relevant models. ‘

Kia’s updated UVO Connect app is available now via the Google Play Store and iOS App Store.
