Yes. The link seems to be dead.
The 'official' link is still there. But that costs $145. - 2015 Kia Soul EV Map Update-126S4PSEV
Anyone know the new link to download the files directly.
The codes for using Torque Pro can be found by clicking the link in the website icon under my user name on the left.

Kia and Hyundai removed the server download links.

Even though the old Canadian update website where you enter a canadian soul EV vin for the link no longer generates a link.

@andrewplease

If you are trying to get update, I would suggest calling Kia Customer Service and letting them know you are having trouble finding update through "my uvo" website.

I will look into seeing where the host server url was changed to.

When I got my car last week, I tried to find the same thing. The dealer sent me to the map update site where I saw the $145 price, so I called Kia. I'm not sure if it's because I'm a new customer or my Soul has such low mileage, but the representative sent me a new SD card with the updates as a good will measure!

Same for me...trying to get the US update for a 2016 Soul EV, and the link just says

This site can’t be reached

updateaccess.kia.com’s server IP address could not be found.


And yes, I put in my vin number at the end, and tried editing the URL to both AVN4.0, AVN5.0, and AVN6.0....
same message.

Anyone know a new address to get it from?

Upload update E512.161024 to the file sharing service.
Map updates are not needed - only UVO software updates.

Well, put the question like that. Where can I buy a firmware update for the Kia Soul navigation system?
