Hmmmmmm, I knew that it was possible to upgrade the Head unit to have Apple Airplay & Android Auto but my dealership told me it wasn't possible in the UK even though the vehicle model etc matched the criteria on KIA's own website...so I forgot all about it...

...until today....

..The car went in for a Map Update for £40. Expensive really as they quoted £25 six months ago. It also went in for a general recall for the Electronic Hand Brake - nowt serious - but a KIA recall.

Today, after browsing through the updated screens on the Head unit I spied Airplay & Android Auto,...plugged in a USB cable and voila..!!

So now my 2016 Soul has no need for future map upgrades etc.as AA works perfectly.
If this is old news my apologies....
