    My 2016 Optima Uvo’s system will not transmit vehicle diagnostics and parking location to my I-phone 6s via bluetooth. USB cable must be used. Not the case with my 2014 Optima. This is very incovenient and impracticle. Other owners have reported similar experiences. Any help would be appreciated.
