UVO updates - Wanting to get apple CarPlay

Hi guys,

Trying to update UVO on my 2015 KIA Optima for apple carplay. I saw that you can download the update file free on myuvo.com, but when I go there, the site looks different from the pictures I've seen and the software update link doesn't exist. Anyone else having the same issue and know where I can go to download the update?

THanks,

As stated above, it seems they are no longer providing UVO updates separate from the map updates. The file you are looking for is an old file and has been superseded. The newest UVO updates are included in the map update which costs about $150 per update. Yeah, it sucks.... but it is what it is....

Well I contacted them and they have the uvo software updates available separate from the map update but want 50 dollars for it. I was wondering if someone might have the file downloaded still that they can share. Just seems a waste to pay 50 when just a few months ago it was free and it’s not like it’s tied to specific cars

Again, that UVO update is old and has been superseded in the newer map update (which is now the way that UVO is updated). Paying 50 dollars for old software doesn't make sense to me unless you have some issues. No major user changes were made in that update, so you should not see any difference. Do you use Android Auto/CarPlay? Does that work on your car? If so, I wouldn't recommend updating your head unit. If you do want to update, then I'd recommend you go for the map update which will update you to the latest version of UVO. Yeah, it costs more money. To be honest, if you use Android Auto/CarPlay, and it works on your head unit, you might not want to upgrade at all...

My current 2015 Optima doesn't have apple carplay, but I want it, hence why I am trying to upgrade. The UVO software is stock, so any update, even if its old but has apple carplay would be nice

Wanting to get apple CarPlay for my 2015 Kia Optima. The update used to be free and available on my myuvo.com but Kia pulled the free upgrade a few months ago. Anyone have the update file they can share? Id really to get apple CarPlayy

Then I would post this on an Optima forum. This is a Sportage forum. The software is different and won't work on your Optima.

I know this thread is old but same situation here. I just bought a 2015 KIA OPTIMA and need the update. Were you able to get the update?

I can confirm that the "official" map update delivers carplay (updated UVO) with no problem. No VIN req'd.

I thus *assume* a used OEM Kia SD card on eBay would do the same.
