Re: Upgrading the Korean Map

Tue Jun 05, 2018 9:11 pm

-
Have been running the latest Q3 2018 update for about a month now - ST.PSEV.KR.E533.180413
Not a lot new.

Will make some comparisons with the latest maps on the Soul EV, I oniq Electric, and K ona EV.

First the Soul EV

1/ As I mentioned before there is a filter labelled 'Connector Settings' on the main list of charging stations.
This makes no sense on the Soul EV, because all of our cars use Chademo.
But I now know that this same screen was added first to the I oniq Electric.
That car initially has Chademo but switched to CCS.
We share the same Navi as the I oniq, hence we get the same filter settings.

The 'Connector Settings' filter on the Soul EV
Image

The 'Connector Settings' filter on the 2016 & 2017 I oniq Electric
Image

The more useful filter is to filter the charging stations by the operating company. The option for this is hidden away deep in a sub-menu.
First go to the navigation menu and open points of interest, then open traffic / automobile and you will see charging stations option.

Image

Image

Image

Image

The 'Operating Company' filter on the 2016 & 2017 I oniq Electric.
It's hidden away in the same deep sub-menu.
Image

----------------------------------------------------------

But the latest 2018 I oniq Electric has new Navi Software that is not shared with the older cars.
Only CCS1 is used on the 2018+ Model Years, so no need to show the Chademo filters.
(It has a new DMB chip for improved TV resolution)
Hence the latest version does not show the 'Connector Settings' filter on the main list of charging stations.
Instead the 'Operating Company' filter is shown. A much better UI decision.

Image

Image

----------------------------------------------------------

The K ona EV shares the same UI as the 2018 I oniq Electric.
It is CCS1, so no need to show the Chademo filters. I assume the N iro EV will also have this UI.

Image

Image

----------------------------------------------------------

For some reason a photo I took inside the Nexo got mixed up with the Navi photos for the Kona.

The original Soul EVs are updated as before:

$ST_PSEV_CA : {1,0,0,0,1,0,1,0,0,1,0,1,1}

But MY 2017 Soul EVs are updated as: (Still no UVO in Europe and Canada. New Modem in US and Korea.)

Code: Select all

$ST_PSEV17_EU : {2,0,1,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,0,0}

The Ioniq EVs are updated as: (For some reason there is no European version. US gets an Amp.)

Code: Select all

//1. SYSTEM, 2.   DMB   3.DAB 4.MODEM 5.GPS 6. INIC(MOST) 7.MULTITOUCH 8.MONITOR 9.HDRADIO 10.SXM 11.AMP 12.SUB MICOM 13.MAIN MICOM 14.EXT.KEYBOARD 15.EXT.CDP

$ST_AEEV_CA : {2,0,0,0,1,0,1,0,0,1,1,1,1}


Other Hybid EVs to get updated are the Hyundai LFHEV and LFPHEV (Ioniq?)
Kia TFHEV, Kia JFHEV and Kia JFPHEV (Optima), Kia DEHEV and Kia DEPHEV (Niro?)

So no sign yet of a new Kia EV. (The Ray EV code TAMEV does not have the navigation display)

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.

The more interesting stuff is inside the update/system folder.
In our cars there is an encrypted zip file containing the binary file to update.
In the more recent N iro EV Kia has changed this to use their own proprietary encrypted file.

Also note you cannot modify any of the update files to install changed files, because there are encrypted hashes of each file.

Hi,

So no chance I can change Korean car (Carnival) to use European setup easily?

Posting some info from Kia USA about the 8 inch display screen navigation / multimedia software used in our cars.

2015 - AVN4
Image

2016 - AVN4
Image

2017 - AVN4 - updated modem
Image

2018 - AVN4 - updated modem
Image

2019 - AVN5
Image

2020 - AVN5
Image


---------------------------

And some detail about the processor used on these systems -
AVN4 is a NXP SOC i.MX53xA ARM Cortex A8 running at 800MHz ( this is the one seen in my car.)
AVN5 is a NXP SOC i.MX 6Dual ARM Cortex A9 running at 1000MHz ( am guessing here - based on graphic for O ptima below.)
If someone has AVN5 and can tell me the chipset - please comment here.

Image



---------------------------


I had a look at the update files for the MY2020.
The underlying file system is quite different, yet the actual navigation updates are identical.
It seems to have changed from an Android system to a Linux system.
The modem is Qualcomm chip MDM9607.
The internal code for the new car is SK3EV. My car was PSEV.

This is the file update.info

Code: Select all

SWVERSION - SK3EV.KOR.0000.V002

Some detail about the latest navigation screens.
Firstly for my car a 2015 using the latest software - ST.PSEV.KR.E537.190320

The EV menu now has a filter to suggest the best c harger to go to.
The algorithm seems to be choosing the ones that have multiple stalls, and are also close.
The other option on this button was to sort by distance.
The connector settings button has moved to the filter screen.
Image

The map screen has weather info when zoomed out.
Image

The map now uses a two pin plug icon to show c harging spots. ( Not the c harger icon that looked like a petrol pump)

Here's some screens from the 10.25 inch screen on the new 2020 Soul EV.
This screen has much better resolution and sensitivity than our current 8 inch version. ( Sorry about the poor quality of my camera!)
The navigation software is nearly identical to my 2015 Soul EV.
Note that this car has software from 30th January 2019. It is a few months older than the recently installed version on my car.

Image

This version doesn't have the suggest feature yet.
Also the car still thinks it is in the Gwangju factory where it was made.
Image

----------------------------------------------

The new I oniq Electric has the same 10.25 inch screen as on the new 2020 Soul EV.
It also has the identical navigation software as the new 2020 Soul EV.

Image

This car knows it is at the Jeju Convention Center.

I installed the 2019 Q3 update. Doesn't seem to offer anything new.

Of note recently is the almost weekly messaging we get onto the navigation.

For example after clicking details on a mini message that tells you a new message has arrived you see this.

Image

If you touch one of the arrows at the end of each summary you get the full message.
Image

This message is telling us that Bluetooth won't work with the latest iOS13.
Another tells that the September update is ready. (You have to download that on a computer.)
And the third says that some systems are losing the clock due to a GPS glitch. (I have never lost the clock.)

Given that I don't pay for UVO, my cars do not have a cellular connection, so I wondered how they are sending this info.
They use TPEG a one way data transfer piggy backing on the DMB system.
This is also how we get the weather and traffic congestion.
