Kia UVO infotainment system questions and how to FAQ

Kia vehicles are going through quite the revolution of late. New levels of performance are being explored with the upcoming 2018 Kia Stinger and the status quo in the hybrid world is being challenged with the 2017 Kia Niro. However, the common thread tying the entire lineup together is the constantly evolving Kia UVO infotainment system. As each new version comes online, Kia owners get new features and functions. The most recent change to UVO involves being able to integrate applications from today’s top smartphones into the unit.
