Four great things about Kia Uvo

Simply put, Uvo is the Kia Motors infotainment system. Maybe we should start with what an infotainment system is. Infotainment is another way of saying an in-car entertainment and information system. It refers to all the hardware and software that delivers audio and visual information. That information could be a hit song or directions to job interview.

Uvo is Kia’s very own proprietary infotainment system. And in case you are wondering what the word Uvo means, well it’s just short for “your voice”. This is because Uvo can accept and act on voice commands. Pretty cool, huh? Here are 4 great things about Kia Uvo.

Smartphone Synching

All of this is possible through voice-recognition technology. There is no need to hold your smartphone once it is synched to your Uvo technology. It even has Apple CarPlay.

Vehicle Diagnostics

Not only will this help to entertain you and provide navigation, it will also help keep your Kia running smoothly. Uvo is capable of collecting data from your car’s engine and suggesting maintenance or even diagnosing something more serious.

Parking Minder

Uvo will remember the coordinates of your parking spot. You can also take a picture of your cars location and store it with these co-ordinates. And there is a timer you set with a reminder so that you will be notified before the time runs out on your parking meter.
