    So. . Has anyone in canada used this app yet? I tried mine out today, even though its warming up i just wanted to check how it worked. I can say the remote start worked after the 3rd attempt. Locking/unlocking doors also worked but the climate controls are finicky. I don't even get the option to turn on heated or cooled seats for my fully loaded stinger.. But in the demo mode it offers that feature on a 2018 rio for gods sake. Also it says my car is black gt limited while its actually red lol. Anyone else missing that feature?

    I too am missing that feature. I imagine they’ll add it in an UVO update in the near future. Otherwise I’ve had no issues with remote features

    Hopefully. But as of now it isnt to big a deal I guess. Just wanted to see if it was just my app/car running the issue. Winter is basically over so I wont be using heated seats much until the fall. And I dont plan on running my engine to cool down my car in the summer. The cooled seats really do work fast anyways.

    How long have you had your Stinger, and how do you like it so far?

    That sucks. I’m also in Canada and took ownership today. I downloaded the app. When I sign in it says to call customer service to verify the vehicle. Do you guys have that issue ?

    I've had mine for a week and a few days so far. I really do love the car. So far in my life I havent owned anything that can outperform the Stinger. The 365 horses is a new experience to me. and it's a great feeling having the power to go with the looks of the vehicle. Gonna be sad when the day comes for me to start using air fresheners. Gona enjoy the new car smell while I can!

    Your dealer has to register your vehicle for you to be able to use the UVO app. It might take a few days. I’d check with your dealer. Mine was able to set me up right away at delivery

    Yah I had that problem too. The system is really finicky and you have to be super exact with entering the same info as your dealer. Otherwise it doesnt believe you are the registered owner. Took me 5 mins on the phone to sort it out though, it isnt to bad. If you do get it working in the future let me know if youre missing the heated/cooled seat climate controls as well. It might be a small issue that needs to be fixed with the app. But if we dont tell Kia, then they wont know to fix it.

    Enjoy the ride! The Stinger is a real head-turner, and a powerful beast of a car. It puts a smile on my face every time I drive it!

    My Stinger is at the dealership, it the final paperwork today. I got it on Saturday late so they sent me home for the weekend, so it’s getting all cleaned up and prepped so I can pick it up tomorrow. I’ll try and get my dealership to help set up the UVO, then it’s off for 3M and window tint.

    Figured id give an update on this for anyone interested. Apparently the first generation stinger models wont get the heated/cooled seat feature through the app at all. I emailed kia to ask about it and they called to tell me that. Pretty shitty but it is what it is. Guess our hands will be warm...but our @$$'s wont be during the winter months.

    Doesn't make much sense. If it's available on the UVO app for the Niro, why wouldn't they make it available for their halo car?

    I've had my Stinger GT since December 6th. I ordered it last July so I got one of the very first ones to come into BC. I love it!! Nothing but compliments. I too love the power although I don' boot it around too much. It's just a wonderful feeling knowing that if you do need the power, it's there for you. Gives me a smile every time I do put my foot into it:)

    Do you mean that your seats turn on, or just that UVO works?

    My UVO works for starting the car, but not very quickly. The whole process from opening the UVO app, picking remote services, then start & select the start setting, entering my PIN and then waiting for it to process the command and start the car is probably about a minute. Not nearly as convenient as I would have hoped. Anyone know how to streamline this process?
