In a video from Kia I see a chapter with the build in dashboard Cam recording from all around the vehicle. Through a connection inside the dashboard stores compartment, you’re able to connect your Iphone/smart phone to this cam, and do recordings directly on to the phone. Do anybody know more about this feature?

This is the same as the Hyundai Ioniq 5 software, this is an optional extra in Korea as it needs an additional battery etc to be fitted - however when I contacted Hyundai (I have a P45 - Ioniq 5) to ask about this it appears that this is a Korea only option, so I would assume that KIA will be the same.

I think it should have been an option on all the cars in every country the car is sold, I would have paid extra for that to be fitted.

I agree, this should be fitted as standard. I like to use a Dash Cam, the car has a camera, so why not a space for a storage card? I will have to fix my dash cam to the screen, I’m sure I have seen in the manual comments not to fit things to the screen. I will sift through the manual again see if I can find the comment

DVRS is the feature you are talking about. I also spotted it in a video.

Here is a shot of the switch, it is in panel above the interior mirror.
I suspect this is a feature we will not see on European cars.
This would be an excellent feature and should be a standard fitting. Much better than fitting an ugly stick on camera!

We are probably precluded from this due to GDPR or some other privacy regulations so I understand. The garage ask me to make sure the dash cam I’ve fitted in my car is turned off before they service the car.

For Audi there are aftermarket solutions that can enable features that are in the car software that the manufacturer does not intend for given models. For example a module to enable “RS only displays on the virtual cockpit” on non RS cars.

I’m not sure if there is/will be a similar aftermarket/grey market for Kia.

Probably still classed as a European model. In Portugal and Austria for example they are banned (last one I looked they were) , and in France there is a load of legislation about dash cams so safest thing for them is not to enable it.
