Thought I'd ask while I'm waiting for the car to arrive.

What are its features?

How does one download the app?

I couldn't find UVO eServices in the Play Store.

Perhaps it's now called Kia Connect Lite?

That's probably what they call it in Australia, I can find Kia connect lite for the U.S. The only other one I can find was KIA ACCESS.

Just to confirm Australia gets absolutely nothing when it comes to app services.

So UVO is not available in the US? The app shows the mileage prior to my purchase of the car a few weeks ago but has not updated since nor does the parking location reminder work…..

It will show mileage & parking location but you have to log into it every time you stop. You log in before you shut the car off, like I said UVO is worthless in the U.S.

Well I guess it's not available in your country, I wish they would make it available to every country they sell the car to...

Thanks for the info...yep, pretty much worthless. Would love it they could give it the ability to start the car like Gm and FCA's UConnect...
