Has anyone gotten their text messaging to work on the UVO system? I have a 2012 SX AWD, UVO but no navi. I've tried 3 different phones so far, and no joy. Just wondering if anyone has seen it work. BTW, I know it has to be enabled in settings first.

Agreed, only a couple phones work with this. If you hit Kia's site and go to the UVO support area, there is a section in one of the pdf's that gives you a grid of which phones can do what feature.

Yep, it only works for the 0.05% of folks that are using Windows Mobile devices. I haven't hit any other snags, though.

Understatement of the year. Actually for the past 4-5 years, but who's counting? :)

It's a big joke. And an easy fix on Kia's part, as this is a custom UVO system for them. They could easily add more phones to it without having to deal with MS's end of things
