  1. Android Auto & Galaxy Note 9 - Can't Load

    ICE & Communication (Gen 3)
    I just bought a 2020 GT-Line 2.0L Soul, and I'm trying to load Android Auto into the system, but it won't load. I'm pretty tech savy, and followed all the instructions numerous times. Anyone else having this problem? Thanks!

  3. Android Auto

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Have had my new Soul for less than a week, and after banging my head against the wall for 4 days I finally stopped by the dealership this morning, to ask how to activate Android Auto on my radio (Which the salesperson told me ALL 2019 MODELS NOW INCLUDE) as it turns out.. my model does not, is...
  4. Problem with Android Auto & Galaxy S9 on Kia Soul+ 2018

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    I wonder if anyone can shed light on the problem I am having? Live in Minnesota so car starts up COLD in winter. I plug in my nearly new Galaxy S9 and the Head unit says reading USB or Android Auto and I can launch the MAP Navigation. All is well until the car has warmed up, say 5-8 minutes...
  5. 2019 KIA SOUL Phone Ringer Sound (From Android) Music Only

    New Member Introductions
    When a phone call comes in, Phone Ringer plays a "musical tune" that is not changeable. I have tried to make the change to something else (possibly a normal "ringing sound") and have not been able to do so. Is the "Musical Ringer Sound" locked in the factory software and cannot be changed? HELP!

  7. How to get Android Auto in 2014 Soul with NAV?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Just purchased a 2014 Soul+ with the NAV package and I've been trying to figure out what's required in order to use Android Auto. I did some searching and found lots of conflicting information about it from a couple years ago, but couldn't find any clear answers. I have downloaded the UVO app...
  8. What do you do with your phone if you use Android Auto?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I'm wondering if anyone has any clever ideas for what do you with your phone, while it is connected to the USB port, when using Android Auto. Currently, I just have my cord wrapped up in a zip tie, connected to and stashed under my phone, while it sits in the little cubby hole area below the...
  9. Turn a wired Android Auto head unit into a wireless one

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    This looks promising for those of you looking to ditch the wire for Android Auto without having to buy a new phone (yes, your phone needs to be wireless AA compatible too) and wireless AA compatible headunit or new car with a wireless AA compatible headunit...
  10. How to setup Android Auto in any car

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I recently started using the Android Auto app in my car. Really like it a lot. It sure has streamlined and enhanced my Car Mode experience. Streaming from my phone to the headunit via Bluetooth. No USB connection needed. I set the app to auto load. Just turn on Bluetooth when leaving the house...

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)

  16. Android Auto

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Looking at the 2017 Plus or the Exclaim (this is not a turbo thread), I cannot help wondering what is the purpose of the GPS and map system in the high end at 2K when you can get, at least in the Plus, Android Auto. The difference for the 2K is the nav unit, 8" screen and a couple of other...

    Ok, I'm a big fan of Android Auto and Pandora, BUT I'm not a fan of Pandora hijacking the system and starting up automatically. Does anyone know how to stop this? TIA PS I do have "Enable Automatic Launch" unchecked in Pandora.
  18. Android Auto update from MyUVO to new SDCard

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Is it possible to install the Entertainment system update from MyUVO to a new SDcard instead of using the one from the car? Having it do a total wipe of my existing working SDcard makes me nervous even though I did it successfully once already. According to MyUVO, there is an even newer update...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I got this email from Kia this morning. I did some research but am still confused. This doesn't come out until the end of this month, but I was expecting lots of discussion here in the Forum about it. Did any of you get this email or is it a late April Fool's joke from Kia just for me...
