    2018 1 Million, 2020 Soul EX
    To be honest, all I have done with the remote app is to lock and unlock the doors. I will try the remote start and A/C temp settings.

    The UVO link in the Soul must function through one of the cell phone carriers, any idea which one? I believe General Motors uses AT&T for their Onstar system, which is similar.

    Thanks for the link....had not seen that before.

    I have been using the remote start/climate pretty much every morning for the past couple of weeks. It's nice. But wow, is it sloooooooooooow. I wish we could just use the keyfob to remote start the car like a lot of other manufacturers do. I have the kia remote start on my last car and had to carry another fob for it...

    The Kia UVO remote system is a nice addition but needs more work. I have been playing with it and I either get a communication error or it take 15 to 20 seconds after the the button is pushed on the smart phone for the engine to start or the doors to lock or unlock.

    A few years ago, I owned a Buick with the Onstar system. I would say it is/was much more refined than the Kia Access.

    Not complaining, just observing.

    I agree that UVO is slow, but the remote climate control is a huge plus to me.

    Hyundai's BlueLink is $180 per year, I suspect the Uvo to be the same. $15/month seems a bit steep to avoid getting into a hot car 4 or 5 months out of the year. The *cool* factor is certainly there, but at anything over $5 per month, it's a tough sell.

    in Canada it's called UVO Intelligence (I presume it's the same as the US as you can control things on your vehicle via a smartphone app) and its free for the first 5 years.

    In Canada it's only available on the EX Premium and higher models.

    I could not justify that much ($180/yr) for the UVO link.
