UVO now supports Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM, compatibility. These new UVO features help minimize distractions on the road when getting directions, sending and receiving messages, making calls and listening to music.

Android Auto connects to the user’s Android device and allows them access to smartphone apps and functions through Kia’s UVO infotainment system, such as voice-guided Google MapsTM navigation, hands-free calls and texts and voice recognition.  Android Auto also lets users stream music from Google Play MusicTM.  With a simple and intuitive interface, integrated steering-wheel controls, and powerful voice actions, Android Auto was designed to minimize distraction so that users stay focused on the road. 

A smarter and more convenient way to use the iPhone® in the car, CarPlayTM gives drivers the ability to access the device’s seamless user interface through Kia’s UVO infotainment system.  By connecting the iPhone® into the USB port, users are able to make phone calls, access music, send and receive messages, get directions optimized for traffic conditions and more while concentrating on driving.  CarPlayTM also features hands-free support via Siri® voice control or the vehicle’s controls and touchscreen.

This software update will be offered free of charge for all eligible vehicles. See the links below to learn more about these new features.
