    2013 Soul Navigation and Bluetooth issues

    I have the nav package (which I seriously regret). Suddenly my phone contacts will not transfer to the car. I have reset EVERYTHING even the phone and nothing. Just out of no where this starts. I REALLY HATE the navigation system on this thing to begin with but this just takes the cake now. Anyone having any issues with their nav or bluetooth? As soon as it connects it says there is no phone book entries when I hit contacts. It does not allow me to view past calls either like it used to. It makes and receives calls and streams music. GOD I hate this thing. The navigation system itself is WORTHLESS. I have to use google maps or even apple maps to find decent routes because this thing gives the most inappropriate routes to places. On top of all this it crashes BECAUSE IT RUNS ON WINDOWS CE!!!! Who runs ANYTHING on windows ce. Sorry I am having a bad day and I just completely started my phone over thinking that was the issue but its not. I hate this freaking nav. Worse part is I set my friends Sync up in his Focus and that system is AMAZING. Ahhhhh! Please help if any of you have had this issue. We passed a law here that you are not allowed to use a mobile device in the car and I really need this P.O.S. to start working right.

    I have not heard anyone else complain about the Premium Pkg Nav. I'd be curious to know though, in case I ever want to consider buying one. Right now I enjoy my 1450LMT Garmin and the vent mount for it.

    Please list your UVO/Navigation version, Phone you are using, and have you tried hitting the factory reset button? Sounds like there was a goof syncing up along the way and it would probably just be easier to reset everything and resync it.

    Seriously wise guys, I would like to know how other people like their factory Navi and losing the UVO because of it.

    I love my factory nav. I've sync'd both my old Iphone 4s and my newer Nokia Lumia 920 Contacts and all. I've used the Nav to go from GA to IL and Back with no problems plus around the area and state. It's never crashed and everything is easily laid out and it works fine for me.

    Ditto to what Sinabu said. I love having the factory navigation. No issues with my Iphone and having the traffic information is wonderful. I do keep my old Garmin as a backup unit but between the Iphone and the factory navigation I am covered.

    I just got a 2013 Kia Soul(!) and I too have the same issue with the Nav/Bluetooth software. I paired my iPhone 5 to the Soul, and when I push the PTT Button, I say "Call [name of gf]" and it follows up with "Dial Number." At which point I have to sound of her digits. Then I have to say "Dial" to place the call. Then the Soul responds "Calling [name of gf]." It says her name! I figured that it was necessary to get her number into the phone book and that it won't ask for it again.

    I was wrong. It repeatedly asks for the number of whoever I say to "Call." It's very annoying. I figured out a work around, though. It's unnecessary, but it works. I just say "Call Name." Soul replies "What name?" I say [name of gf] and it places the call! What the heck...
