Here at Pat McGrath Kia, Iowa City drivers know we’re the dealership that can handle all of their automotive needs, be it searching for a new or pre-owned vehicle, or bringing their car in for service. We put our customers first and our staff is committed to making sure you’re satisfied with your driving experience — something that’s more common than ever with Kia’s new UVO infotainment interface. Cars are fast becoming a much a digital tool as a mechanical one, and with UVO, Kia continues to outshine the competition with its advanced technology.

What Does UVO Do?

Powered by Microsoft, Kia’s UVO system allows you to monitor your vehicle’s performance and keeps you up to date on maintenance schedules. That means no more little stickers in the upper corner of your windshield reminding you of when it’s time for your next oil change. With UVO you can also monitor your car’s location, whether you’re simply trying to remember where you parked, or you’re trying to keep track of where your vehicle was the night before, when your teen took the car.

Much of the UVO is centered on personalizing your own driving experience. The advanced voice controls gives owners the ability to create their own speech profile, which UVO will then learn to recognize. With voice activation control, you’ll be able to stay focused on the road when using Bluetooth or your MP3 player. UVO’s color LCD touch screen allows you to search for your favorite radio station, music on your MP3 device, or search for contacts in your phone by using Bluetooth capabilities.

Among the newest 2013 Kia models, drivers can choose from six vehicles that offer UVO eServices. Included in this selection are the Optima, Rio, Rio 5-Door, Sorento, Soul, and Sportage. In addition to the voice control and LCD touch screen, owners will also love UVO’s rearview camera and Digital Jukebox, which has the capability to store 700MB of music.
