RUSSIAN: Для перевода на русский язык мультимедиа ГУ, необходима доработка и перепрошивка ГУ в условиях мастерской. В Одессе есть специалист, который добился успеха в этом вопросе. Стоимость услуги по переводу мультимедиа на русский язык + навигация и карты Европы = 350$. Но при такой доработке и прошивке НЕ будет работать Android Auto и Apple Car Play!!! :(
А это сводит целесообразность такой переделки в ноль!
Этот же мастер выполняет перепрошивку приборной панели на километры и на русский язык. Цена услуги = 80$. Это действительно полезно и актуально!

ENGLISH: For reworking multimedia into Russian, revision and flashing of a multimedia device in a workshop is necessary. In Odessa, there is a master who has achieved success in this matter. The cost of the multimedia translation service into Russian + navigation and maps of Europe = $ 350. But with such a revision and firmware, Android Auto and Apple Car Play will NOT work !!! :(
The same master performs a flashing of the dashboard for kilometers and into Russian language. Service price = $ 80.

For a while I will post an archive with this firmware on my Google Drive. Do not thank)))

UPD: While I was looking for the firmware version I needed, I came across some version of software for Canada. On my car, she did not fit. When trying to update, the message appeared on the screen: "Not compatible with hardware version. Please check and try again."

If someone needs a version for Canada, you can download it here.

This is an update for an electric vehicle, which as a massive amount of computers that your car will not have, and equally computes that your car has and this one doesn't. I doubt it would install in the first place, but I wouldn't advise trying it out if it did.

I want to thank you so much for this link I recently used this to update my 2016 to allow for carplay and I really like it a whole lot. If not for the discussions here and that link of yours I probably would have spent time or money sorting it out. The update worked great for my US model and the youtube video from DaxM also helped me when installing it that person has a nice youtube with some helpful hints and vids even though he has a telsa now his soul ev vids really helped me push to get one and I am glad I did so far so great. Thanks again this thread and all the comments were a big help for me.

For the benefit of others I just wanted to confirm this still works and worked great for my 2016 Kia Soul EV+ in the US. I pulled the SD card, dragged over the upgrade folder to the root of the SD card, put it back in, hit the update button, and it did its thing. Android Auto is great on this.

Hi, I am having the same problem. My dealer (in Canada) gave me the link and instructions to download and install the Android Auto update from kia.ca/softwareupdate but that link only takes me to the home page. Urgh! I downloaded the update you put on Google Drive (it took a while, it's a huge download) unzipped it and had a look inside the folder. When I opened the Word file, the text was all in Russian. I am reluctant to install this update. No offense, but I don't want my system to end up in another language ;-) Has anyone else tried this? Can they confirm that Fansite's download on Google Drive will work?

In the meantime, I contacted my dealer again to see if they could put the update on a usb key or sd card for me, but they hit the same wall on the kia website as I did. They then referred me to Kia Canada customer service for help. They say the update is offered by a third party (their site was linking off to that vendor) and is part of an update of the larger GPS maps system. It WAS offered free of charge a couple of years ago as a special promotion, but is now only available at $199 USD! Yikes! I am a bit discouraged. What a pain. Technology is great, but it sure can be a time-waster. Has anyone got any advice?
