    I have this same issue and I just bought my 2020 gt, I cannot get it to auto synch with my phone when I start the car. I have checked every setting I could find, reset everything, including the uvo system.. sill it will not remember my phone.. I have a note 8, with the android stem on my phone. It works just fine as soon as I hook it into the usb. This is bugging me...

    For some reason, mine stopped connecting as well. Although, I may have been plugging my phone into the USB, thus why it was connecting automatically. At this point, I think I'm just going to bypass the wireless charger as having that feature eliminates a lot of other functionality, which is typical of what I've come to expect from Kia, features that are half-baked.

    I found out that when you get in the car and the phone is setup through the android auto, you plug your phone into the cable and unplug it, and then it connects over bluetooth, but that is the only way I have found so far... there has to be something I am missing.. but I have troubleshoot this for 4 days now.. I'm at a loss..

    Let's hope Kia issues a TSB or PitStop bulletin for this problem you guys are having.

    I know "some" dealers have a Techie on staff who might be able to help with this stuff.

    I'm currently developing an answering machine for cars.
    The message will pre-populate as: "I'm home right now...please call back when I'm out"

    Kia needs to sponsor "owner workshops" for those like myself who cant figure out how to:
    1-Get into their locked car.
    2-Get out of their locked car.
    3-Make calls from their car.

    Anyone find any fix to this yet?

    I have also found out that mine only disappears from the car after it has sat off for over 5 min. Before the 5 minutes, it seems to reconnect and find my phone with no hooking up of USB cable...

    I have had zero issues with my Soul and OG Google Pixel XL running the latest updates. Connects within a few seconds of starting the car.

    Make sure your phones are running the latest software.
