Re: Upgrading the Korean Map

...Hi, how did you get these values? Nothing difficult. Put the SD card from the car into your computer. It is a regular FAT32 filesystem. Open the update folder. Look at the file update.ini.

Re: 2015 Soul EV: Out of State Battery Replacement

...I tried asking for more information on who this supplier might be or for details on the battery itself, like is it new or refurbed?
