  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I'm not certain on this but I do believe when I first got the car I was able to plug my phone into it and play music from the media section of it but now every time I plug my phone into the USB port it says connection failed and doesn't read anything

Especially since I’m in Miami where it gets super hot sometimes. I would mind paying but I haven’t seen anything when I googled it and I...
  3. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    So, I guess the wool was pulled over my eyes. I got excited because I thought I could unlock my Kia VIA my phone using the UVO access link app. It seems either i'm dumber than I thought or it's not offered for my model. I walk/ run a lot and would honestly love if I could forgo carrying my...

    I recently purchased a 2016 Optima EX and when I plug an address into the navigation it won't find any results. Do I have to have a UVO subscription for the GPS to work? It worked for me just once, and I can't figure out what Idid to make it work that one time. Any tips or advice?

    2019 Remote Start / UVO LINK APP FEE Thought it worth clarifying that the Remote Start, Climate Control, etc., on 2019's Require the UVO LINK app (link below) AND Those Features will require a UVO LINK Subscription AFTER the Complimentary ONE-YEAR Trial. 1-844-886-9411 UVO Sppt stated the...

    I am looking at getting a used 2016 or 2017 Optima SXL with the 360 view camera, heated/ventilated seats, and a heated steering wheel. That's pretty much a maxed out (options-wise) Optima. I am having trouble finding good info on what UVO eServices allow you to do for a 2016 Optima SXL. I...
  11. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Continuing saga, just got my Optima out of the shop after the *5th* check engine light, now I get a message when I start my car from the UVO Services: 'Automatic Diagnostics Failed. Please press [Vehicle Diagnostics] on the UVO eServices main screen.' I'm guessing as soon as I do this I'll get...

    Hello, just got a 2018 Optima and wondering if the UVO is worth setting up and what does everyone use for a phone mount? Kinda weird that it seems so smart phone tech and no phone holder. Thankx !!

    I have used search function and have not really found an answer. In looking at all of the different post I have found conflicting info about Android Auto and UVO being Bluetooth enabled. I have a 2017 Optima SX-L every time I try to use either Android Auto or UVO it tells me to connect to USB...

    I don't understand why they don't just take their sister company's BlueLink and just change the look a bit and use it as UVO. Because UVO sucks the way it is now for connection. You should be able to use UVO to start the car and do the climate control and stuff like BlueLink. Also the app...

    I know one can view tire pressure for all 4 tires in the speedometer dash where there is a smaller LCD situated. However is there a way to view this information on the UVO/nav screen as well. Thanks!
