Haha I pay that much for Netflix hbo and Hulu and you have to pay this much to have app start you car. I know people will always pay for but I predict maybe 10% of owners. Which is still good number for them. All companies go for subscription packages nowadays I just budget.

I am not paying that much to just remote start, although I am only interesting in remote start, do not care anything else. I think KIA lost it by not providing remote start on fob, everything else is optional.

Wowowow. That is horrifically overpriced for what it is....
I agree and I challenged the KIA Rep about it when he came for Telluride training. My thoughts are that Car Executives know customers are paying after market company's upwards of 15 dollars a month for remote car starters. Here in the North East I've seen quite a few trade ins with these set ups.

Okay just talked to UVO customer service.. this is more or less an example and not final. The remote charge is for EV vehicles. Remote start will be a paid option.

I guess for all those services, if those are available for $5/month or under (like $50/year) may be worth it.
I would realistically pay $3-5 a month TOPS to be able to remote start my car a couple months out of the year. I see no other benefit... I always know where my car is. What else would this provide me to justify being as much as my actual personal cell phone bill.

You maybe able to obtain a discount on your insurance. Something to keep in mind.

It would be different if this app worked even half the time. I'm a Kia sales rep in the central region and setting the UVO Link up and then having to be embarrassed when it never works how it's supposed to is getting old.

good point @Tellyride365 as having a Tesla and seeing that app there is no comparison. It's slow to load and has to be manually refreshed. Plus almost impossible to read the type. Needs some user experience help.

At my dealership I sell new Kia and Buick. I switch back and forth brands every other lease. Kia is so far behind GM when it comes to the application side if things it's sickening. Remote Link from GM absolutely destroys UVO Link. I really hope they fix all the issues. My Telluride should hit mid July.
