Does anyone ever get the "Kia motors" connection renamed on thier phone?
Mine does it, but I know when it'll do it. It'll be when doing a very brief start or journey. Maybe you start it/drive for 2 mins. As pic below it names it KO ECN. I only have to remove it from phone and when back in car allow it to connect itself again. Takes seconds but a bit annoying it does it

Nope. Mine always has KIA MOTORS on the Bluetooth link, I've never seen anything else. For the record Samsung Galaxy J6 running Android 11.

I think it still connects when renamed. The reason I notice is that I have hotspot automatic, which specifically looks for Kia motors connecting before it enables a WiFi hotspot, but as it's a different name it then doesn't do its thing.
I'm Android 11 on a Moto G30.

As I say it's a simple fix just a little annoying that I know it'll do it but don't know why

I use HotSpot Starter and it functions using the same method, it looks for the Bluetooth connection. Have you tried deleting both the car link and the phone link, then remake them? Remaking links can often clear weird stuff like this.

Yeah have tried that. I think Motorola rolling out Android 12 next month, hopefully some glitch that maybe gets cleared under a new system.

I haven't noticed but my phone runs a routine, so as soon as I connect to the cars bluetooth, it starts internet hotspot, runs Spotify and turns off wifi, and then reverses when i disconnect from the car.
