What Is Kia Connect?

If you buy a brand-new Kia vehicle today, it’s likely to come preloaded with Kia Connect. You might also get access to Kia Connect when you purchase a used Kia vehicle. You’ll love what Kia Connect can offer you. But before you begin taking advantage of what Kia Connect can do, it’s worth discovering more about it. This will enable you to make the most of Kia Connect from the moment you start using it. Discover Kia Connect, learn how it works, and learn more by checking out the article below.

What Is Kia Connect?

It would be easy to simplify Kia Connect by referring to it as little more than just an infotainment management system. But we aren’t going to do that because it can do so much more than the average infotainment management system can. Known initially as the Kia UVO link, it can help you take control of all the infotainment features you’ll find in your Kia. But it’s also designed to help you take control of other aspects of your Kia while gathering important information related to your Kia vehicle.

Once you’ve set up Kia Connect in your Kia, you can remotely lock and unlock your Kia’s doors using your smartphone. You’ll also be able to control the climate of your Kia with little more than just your phone. You’ll appreciate how intuitive Kia Connect is when you use it daily.

How Does Kia Connect Work?

When you buy a Kia that comes with Kia Connect, setting it up should be a breeze. But you’ll need to be prepared to spend a little time tinkering with it to get it set up to your exact specifications. Initially, you’ll need to control Kia Connect using the touch screen in your Kia. But you’ll also have the option to set up Kia Connect to control it using your voice or smartphone. A Kia dealership can help you take the right steps to get Kia Connect up and running.

What Are the Best Kia Connect Features?

Once you have Kia Connect set up in a new or used Kia, you can start using it to its full potential immediately. You’ll find that it’ll have quite a few features you’ll enjoy using that will make your Kia easier and safer to drive. Some of the best Kia Connect features include:

  • Find My Car, which will allow you to see where you parked your car if you ever forget.
  • Remote Climate Control will let you adjust the temperature in your car without being inside it.
  • Remote Door Lock & Unlock enables you to lock and unlock your car without being near it.
  • Rear Occupant Alert will inform you if you ever accidentally leave a child on the backseat of your car.
  • Stolen Vehicle Recovery, which will increase the chances of you being able to recover your car if it’s ever stolen.

As you can see, these features help make Kia Connect so much more than any old infotainment management system.

What Are the Benefits of Using Kia Connect?

You’ll enjoy many benefits when you buy a Kia that supports Kia Connect. First and foremost, you’ll love how much control Kia Connect will give you over your Kia. You’ll be able to control almost every aspect of it, regardless of whether it’s parked just outside your house or at an airport on the other side of the country. You’ll also love how much safer it’ll make your Kia for you and your family if you plan on driving them around in your Kia. You’ll get so much peace of mind, thanks to Kia Connect.

Does Kia Connect Come Standard in Kia Vehicles?

One thing worth noting is that while Kia Connect is available in most new Kias and even some used Kias that are still on the newer side, it doesn’t necessarily come as standard and is free to use. Rather than coming with Kia Connect, most new Kia owners will get an introductory version of Kia Connect they can try out. It’ll include features such as basic trip information and 911 Connect that you can use in emergencies.

But if you’d like to test all the Kia Connect features we just discussed, you’ll need to upgrade to one of the available Kia Connect packages. You’ll also need to pay for the package you choose, though you won’t have to worry about breaking the bank. The Ultimate Package, which includes every feature we touched on and more, costs about $200 per year. That’ll be a small price for the benefits of using Kia Connect.

How Can You Troubleshoot Kia Connect?

For the most part, you won’t need to be concerned about troubleshooting Kia Connect. It’s a straightforward system to use. But if you ever experience any issues with it, your local Kia dealership will be able to provide you with the troubleshooting services you need. Their service center can get your Kia Connect working like it’s supposed to so you can get back to loving it again.
