Kia is adding over-the-air (OTA) functionality to 2022 model year onwards models equipped with Kia Connect.

OTA capability ensures the satellite navigation unit can receive map and related software updates wirelessly.

Owners then no longer need to download updates manually from the automaker’s navigation updates portal or visit a dealership to have technicians install updates.

OTA updates provide the latest UK and European maps, interface improvements and bug fixes. The first OTA update campaign – due to finish at the end of February – offers a range of specific enhancements, including a rollout of the EV6’s ‘Eco’ menu to all other Kia EVs, improved voice recognition, and improved 3D map visualisation.

Owners of MY22 or 23 vehicles can enable their vehicles for OTA updates retrospectively by installing new software from the navigation updates website.

Once OTA updates are activated, owners will be notified by an ICE screen popup , asking them to authorise the download and installation. Once the process is over, can scan a QR code to find out about the changes.
