I'm finding that UVO often notifies me that I have left the doors unlocked, but this is not true. Also, I cannot unlock the doors remotely (but then again why would I want to?), it says [Fail] cannot unlock doors,,check status. Anyone else with similar experience?

Thanks for that, Gerd. I've just installed Kia Connect (it hasn't overwritten UVO).. After signing in, it looks like, and has identical functionality, to the UVO app. I still can't remotely unlock the doors. I'll see if the app reports the doors are left unlocked after my next trip. I'd surmise it's nothing more than a rebrand at present.

If I lock my car via KIA Connect, I have to press the round circle with the arrow (update info), then to type in my password. After this I get the message that connection with the KIA server takes place and that the request is sent to my car, then I get the message that the request is successfull executed ... the same procedure, if I unlock my car via KIA Connect ...
