If you want your car to rat out your kids, Kia is showing off a whole new out-ratter:
Don’t want your kid driving to a certain part of town say that sketchy neighborhood out west or the house of a friend that you’re not so keen on? In the near-future, your Kia could send you a text message if they go there… Besides the usual services 9-1-1 assist and send-to-car Google Maps navigation in nav-equipped cars UVO offers what Kia Forte product strategy manager Dan Tiet called “geo-fencing,” or the ability to draw zones on a map and receive alerts when your car goes there.
UVO “Your Voice” (?) will be rolled out in two 2014 models, including the Forte, and eventually to the rest of the line.
