Re: What SOH I have ?

- I'll give a wild guess for your SOH. 95% I have a 2015 with original battery. It has done 73,000km. The GOM will show about 165km at 100% SOC. Fuel Economy 8.5 km/kWh.

Re: Park not keeping the car in place

Yes this has been reported before.
Common solution: "Until the car goes in for diagnosis we are manually setting the parking brake every time we park."

Re: Upgrading the Korean Map

- Upgraded to the April 2020 software a while ago now. (ST.PSEV.KR.E541.200401) Only just noticed one interesting change. The reversing camera screen has a settings icon in the top right.
