I've got the EX V6 with the Premium Package and I have the UVO Radio with HD. I also know that the UVO radio is incompatible with the NAV package and thus you cannot get them together on any vehicle. You seem to indicate there are UVO radios with and without HD, and I do not believe that to be the case. It also makes little sense for Kia to carry two diffferent versions of the UVO radio. Based on the Kia website, the EX only has a Premium Plus option which bundles the NAV and thus does not include UVO. The EX V6 offers the Premium Package and if you don't also get the Limited Package you get the UVO radio. However, if you also order the Limited Package the UVO radio goes away (see the disclaimer for the Limited Package). Finally, if you order the SX, it comes standard with NAV and thus UVO is not available. As I have noted in another thread, this likely stems from an incompatibility issue between NAV and UVO that prevented UVO from being introduced in the 2011 Sorentos as originally planned. I would bet that by model year 2013 that incompatibility will be resolved because it has caused much confusion only in the marketplace, and also among dealers.
Thank you very much for that clarification. It makes more sense.
So the bottom line seems to be
GPS = No UVO
UVO = No GPS
Easier to eliminate/select what you need (at least for now).
|I went through both manuals. UVO and Navigation. The only difference I see is UVO has more voice commands (especially for Bluetooth), It has the music library function with 700 MB storage and HD radio.|
