Today I recharged my battery to 100% in an attempt to force a calibration but I missed the start at 100%. Because that I had a full battery, something that I don't like because I really don't need it. So it was time to make it empty.
Decided to go to my dealer check if the second key for the car was already in and to check the status of the Kia Niro I have ordered.
After complaining about the km that changes to miles by itself on the screen to the closest charging point,


they told me they have received 2 weeks ago a new update and they could install it now if I had time. Of course I had time, that thing was making me nuts.
After 25 minutes and 3 or 4 reboots the new system was installed.

So I got updated from




And surprise surprise!!! It has android auto!!!
So I hadn't had yet much time to fiddle with it, but it looks stable :D so, Belgium already has the update!

What about the engineering mode? Did someone succeeded to get in what were discussing on the torque thread?

Some German users have found a way to install torque pro onto the head unit of the car.
They do this on the I oniq Electric, but the same technique should be available for our car as well.

To succeed on the Soul EV we need to get into engineering mode. The access code seems to be different from that shown for the I oniq in this video.

There's another video which shows better how to get into engineering mode and install the files.
