1) can you change the language of the whole GPS menu ? (on the start, i see "language" on the bottom-right)
2) can you know if GPS navigation (MAP) is update, too ? Because i'm in France ... and don't want the Canadian MAP :D

the link on kia.ca is still not working yet, so i followed the link on FB group and did the upgrade last night,
it took a long time to download the 9+GB file from kia.com, then format and write to the SD card,
the update of the head unit was relatively quicker.

OK Google ....

:D :lol: :roll:

Please post the specific URLs for the Apple CarPlay software upgrade that were supplied by Pierre-Étienne Messier. I have been unable to find them or the thread by Mike Lambert in the Soul EV Facebook group.

Thank you

you need to expand the conversation and search for the following post dated July 6 at 7:54am





Pierre-Étienne Messier Great! Our complaints were not done in vain :) Update in progress!

Note that the update only updates the A/V system, not the maps. For me it's ok, I'll use Google Maps instead!

I've had problems downloading the update too. They seems to have wrongly identified the VIN for Titanium Soul EV (we are getting update for regular Soul instead -- you can tell because the product code is "PS" instead of "PSEV" inside the update.ini file). Note that your VIN is only needed for the website to choose the file you'll need to download.

UPDATE: The VIN is really needed at the end of the link otherwise you won't get the updated maps in the download. Replace "VIN..." with your VIN, available on a sticker on the side of the driver's door or in the windshield on the driver's side.

UPDATE July 6: added Mac links.

The final download (using the application below) should be around 9Gb.

I am a Mac user and have a 2016 Soul EV+.

When I click on the relevant link above, I get a "File not found" message.

The Instruction link takes me to a 404 page on the Kia.ca site and then to a "Where's the Soul?" graphic.

Thank you! The direct links from the FB post given above worked perfectly on our 2016 Soul EV in Canada. The kia.ca software upgrade site is still not listing the Soul EV as a supported model for some reason (and not validating the corresponding VINs). I had been tracking this page regularly until I came across this post.

Definitely enjoying Google navigation over the default maps. We're now driving with the SD card taken out altogether so that the default maps are not loaded at all. It's frustrating that they originally wanted to charge $300+ for Android Auto/Carplay support bundled with map updates.
