I discovered that you can start the car and leave it running when you physically go out to the car. The auto shut off is set to 30 minutes, just have to ut up with the irritating beep for a few moments while you walk away with the key. Agreed, not too convenientHmm..I suppose the A/C must be part of the all defrost option as part of the app even for heating up the car.
I don’t know, now that temps are in the 20’s (F) I’m not having much luck with UVO start or key fob remote start. Even when I leave my car with a high fan speed- it always runs low when I use the fob or EVO. Maybe I have to leave my actual climate control set on high? I will try that next I suppose..
Overall, it has been relatively useless as I still have to run 3 cycles to make it even slightly effective. It’s annoying to have to remember to keep setting it every 10 minutes while trying to get ready for work. This morning I didn’t want to deal with it so I just went out and started my car and let it run for 30 minutes.
This is the first time I have had a remote start feature that is less convenient than going outside and just starting your car and being done with it. I wonder if all KIA’s remote starts are like this?
