February 14, 2023 – Owners of the latest Kia models can now benefit from the latest infotainment features more quickly and easily, thanks to new over-the-air (OTA) functionality. Available for all Kia models from MY22 onwards, the OTA capability will provide remote access to wireless navigation and infotainment updates. This ensures that to update their vehicle’s software, customers no longer need to manually download via the official Kia Navigation Updater Portal or visit a Kia dealership.
The latest OTA technology is available for all MY22 Kia models and all subsequent models in countries that support Kia Connect across Europe. It will provide easy access to updates for the vehicle's navigation system and head-unit and tackle any potential software bugs. Kia’s first OTA update will offer a range of specific enhancements, including a new ECO Design theme for electric vehicle models that was previously only available on the Kia EV6, new Sounds of Nature tracks, and improved climate and seat-climate control.
The OTA functionality delivers additional comfort for customers and will also save them time, as the navigation and infotainment systems are automatically kept up to date – no action required. This is just one example of how Kia is establishing the basis for an enhanced and seamless connected experience by providing its customers the most advanced technology.
