I’d assume it’s similar to other Kia’s. What are you hoping to unlock or tweak?

Since we're on this subject.... Is the UVO anything more than voice controls?

We bought a used 2016 Sorento EX-T last Oct. Downloaded the UVO app and couldn't get it to work. Seemed pretty underwhelming.

Now that I own a 2019 Stinger GT, I haven't even bothered with UVO. Am I missing out on anything? The standard radio infotainment and Android Auto functions do work really well and have kept me busy.

I'm interested to know as well. After two days of using the app, it appears I can't use it to locate my vehicle. (is that correct, or am I just a dummy?)

It’s dumb. Don’t even bother with it. Americans got screwed with the UVO app. There are other features other countries get that the US doesn’t.

In Canada the UVO app for the stinger is great.

Can remote start, set the HVAC temperature, turn on the heated steering wheel and rear defrost..
Even has multiple profiles for the remote starting.

Sends a reminder notification approx 30 seconds after you walk away from the car if you forget to lock the doors.
Can locate the car - not sure why you would need this - maybe if you loose your car or it gets stolen?

I was able to get it.....buuuut I couldn't really figure out how to do anything. I'd like to defeat the initial screen warning, battery discharge warning, and probably a few other things I can't think of at the moment.

Why doesn't the UVO turn on your heated seats?

TBH, I don't even know what the UVO is or does. I've looked through the features and couldn't figure anything out so I forgot about it. I know that my $50K car doesn't have remote start let alone allow me to lock or unlock my car from my phone. My daughter had an Elantra and she unlocked her car from Mexico so I could put her plates on it.
