Kia of South Austin knows that in a world of ever-changing technology, it’s important to have the latest and most innovative features at your fingertips. Kia models come packed with plenty of practical and dynamic technologies that make every drive more enjoyable, entertaining, and safe. That's why we've compiled a list of some of the features we're head over heels for. Find out how easy it is to take your experience to the next level with the features included in Kia’s UVO eServices.

What is UVO?

UVO eServices incorporates infotainment with an enhanced telematics suite that’s easily accessible through your smartphone app. In addition to the features you’d expect like Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay™, and Android Auto™, there is also a host of features that will make you wonder how you ever managed without the UVO suite.


Stream your favorite songs with Pandora®, SiriusXM®, or Kia’s Jukebox. You can also charge your devices, load music, or download your content with the available USB ports. Gone are the days of searching for songs you hear on the radio – now you can tag any song to save the artist and song title.


Navigate to your destination with easy voice commands. You can also use Kia’s points of interest, or POI, to search for destinations through Google Maps™ and send them to the UVO system for easy retrieval in the future. View routes and destinations easily when you check the details of your trip with one quick tap of a button.


Always forget where you park? The Parking Minder feature uses the GPS of your smartphone app to direct you back to your vehicle. It’s also easy to view your maintenance needs or run a quick diagnostic test on your Kia. Roadside assistance is easily reached when needed, and in the event of a mechanical issue, you can run a quick diagnostic check from the driver’s seat.
