Default UVO updates

Hi everybody!

I'm new here on the forums, and with my first post I wanted to contribute in some way!

I just recently bought a Rio 5 SX UVO 2013 (manual gearbox ), and searched far and wide for UVO updates to no avail... until I stumbled upon this address on a forum for Soul owners...

https://www.kia.com/#/ownerssection/uvodownload/

You need to be logged in to see the page correctly... use bugmenot.com if you don't have an account and don't wanna bother with registering.

After login in just retry the link you should see the update download button on the right.

The latest version out is 1.MP.9.010.

I'm pretty sure this update will work for all KIAs with UVO (in north america at least), Soul, Sorento, Optima, etc.

I did the update without a hitch and will report if I see any changes in behavior from previous version 1.MP.9.009 I had.

Of course Kia/Microsoft ain't nice enough to post a changelog with each update...

thanks for the info. I can't get access. Won't recognise my VIN. I'm guessing because I am in canada. Anyone know how to get this update from canada?

Just installed. Took about 8 minutes maybe...

The clock time font is larger, easier to read.
iPhone 3GS, playing music via bluetooth, the correct song title is now displayed (before it wouldn't update after the first song was played).

To get from canada, login to the site using bugmenot.com, use the first login displayed. I wasn't able to find the link, so once I was logged in, I just pasted the link from the first post into the address bar, and it took me to the download page.

Exactly what he said... once logged in with a fake account just reinsert the first link into your address bar and press enter, you will be able to access the update.

Wonder if neither of my two vehicles are showing up because my wife and I JUST bought them last week. Not taking either of our VIN numbers. I will talk to the dealership tomorrow when I trade in my 09 Sportage. They let us keep it as a "demo" because we needed it this weekend for a camping trip since it already has a hitch on it. I feel like I'm "ballin'" with three cars at my house right now.

Thanks for this info. I checked my firmware version and it was 1.MP.9.008, so I updated mine today. I haven't played around with it to see if there are any other noticeable differences, but the larger clock font is a blessing to these old eyes.

I was not able to get into the download page with the help of the two links. It says that the account already exist.. The KIA.COM is also not recognizing my Canadian VIN #. Could you please brief again that how you were able to download it being in Canada. Can anyone of you would like to share the file by sky drive or Google drive. Will appreciate that
