New Soul delivered yesterday has home centre screen in 3 columns and no sign of purple. Am I right in thinking they didn't update to latest SW and If so, am I missing anything important?
Thanks

Definitely not the latest software. I insisted ours was updated before delivery, especialy if they wanted a 5* review on the Kia customer survey. It should not be a problem for them as updates are free from Kia and you only have to pay the dealers fee for the install. Obviously on a new car, it should be free as part of the PDI.

From what I have read, there are pros and cons with the software versions. I wanted the update because I did not want to have t familiarise myself with the old version, then have to do it again with the new version.

Anyone tell me what is the version of the latest software. Am waiting delivery of a demo model and want to ensure it’s updated with latest version before it comes out to me.

Does the sidebar get added automatically or is there a setting? Mine just has the Android Auto logo and phone model name.
You will have the 3 widget version I expect. Just needs to be updated. Dealer can do this or I believe you can if you are brave.

Just upgraded to the latest software I could find SK3_E.EUR.SSW_L.001.001.210817 (previous SK3_E.EUR.SSW_L.001.001.200932)

Can't see how to show widgets on the right side instead of the Android Auto logo?

@Todor Great, all working now, thanks for your help.

Actually on mine it is under Phone Projection settings?
That was what I remembered too, under Projection or some sort. But my car finished charging, so I went out to disconnect it, and snapped a couple of photos... and the setting was under Phone Connection. :unsure:

Aaaa, my Soul is on a March firmware, little older than yours.

What is the big difference with the new version. Do I take it that the screen is now split in half as opposed to thirds.
As per above photos it is 2/3 1/3.
