GPS locations are not preserved

I have just taken possession of my Soul EV 2020 Limited. I do not know if the dealer who made the preparation a little fast but some functionalities do not work. GPS locations are not preserved. Also, Bluetooth cell syncronization is not preserved. Is it possible that a demo or salon mode is activated? The information is kept about 15 minutes after all is cleared.
The UVO registration works well. I communicate with the car without problem. I do not see any other difficulty.

Thanks to the My Kia Soul EV community.

Experiencing the exact same problems, I figured it was just me.

It seems like all the 2020 Kia Soul ev’s have this problem. My Kia dealer ordered a new radio and installed it last Wednesday and it did the same thing as the original one . It won’t remember GPS locations or keep the Bluetooth pairing setup.

Kia told me the software update fix those issues. The actual version in the Soul (father's Soul by the way) is .190130 It could mean the date 2019 January 30. I will comeback whit the result after he get the update.

My apologies for being so late with a reply. I am on some Facebook groups and posted but I miss some other groups. Yes all is working as it should - the update cleared up several things. I have also done a test run using the GPS - it is very good and the live UVO traffic seems accurate.
