Parking Minder

This is an awesome feature that shoots the location of your Kia straight to your smartphone. Not only does it give you the coordinates but it lets you snap pictures of the area around your car for reference. And as if that isn’t snazzy enough- you can even set an alarm on your phone to let you know when your parking meter is up! When it comes time to go back to your car, you will be guided by an app that displays your location and the vehicle’s location on a map.

911 Connect

To say this feature is lifesaving would not be an exaggeration. If airbags deploy in your Kia, the Uvo system’s crash notification function will alert emergency services of your location. You have 10 seconds to cancel the alert, otherwise the system will call a 911 dispatcher.

Car Care Web

Ever want to have your favorite service technician riding shotgun with you? Well, now you can, sort of. The Kia vehicle has a number of sensors embedded throughout it.
