Battery status and control
Remotely start, stop and schedule charging, and see the status of your battery at a glance. Ideal to make the most of off-peak electricity prices or to know if your car has reached enough battery to go.
Vehicle status, notifications and remote commands
Receive notifications about key elements of your car such as door locks, windscreen washing fluid level and battery health. You can even lock and unlock doors remotely. What’s more you have access to details of past trips and driving stats.
Remotely activate, set and schedule climate control so you no longer have to scrape that windscreen in winter. In addition, reaching your set temperature while the vehicle is charging helps you conserve precious driving range. *Available on EVs only.
Handing your keys over to someone else? Activating the valet mode in your Kia lets you track your vehicle’s whereabouts and gives you stats about its speed, driving time and distance travelled.
Find My Car
Always know exactly where your Kia is parked. Let the Kia Connect app guide you to your car in confidence. Also, when parking before reaching your final destination, the app walks you the last bit of the way using Google Maps or augmented reality.
Favourite destinations and send-to-car
Waste no time finding your destination. The favourite addresses you set in your app are replicated in your car. You can also find a destination on your phone and send it straight to your navigation system.
User-linked vehicle settings
Do you want to hear speed camera alerts? What map orientation are you most comfortable with? Use your app to customise your vehicle settings so your preferences apply as soon as you get behind the wheel.
