  1. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    2013 Soul + UVO Audio package w/ backup camera SW ver. 1.MP.9.014 Samsung A10 phone Android 10 When I first purchased this vehicle in May, I was overjoyed to be able to sync up my phone to the Bluetooth. Calls were made, audio was streamed, it was great. About 2 months after purchase, when...
  2. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello! I've had my Soul 2012 for almost 5 years now, and the Bluetooth has always worked perfectly, but one day it stopped working. I deleted all the paired phones and tried pairing it again, but my phone doesn't find the car anymore. (I've tried with several phones, and i'm sure it's the...

    Just got my 2012 Soul, base model. I paired my phone up just fine with the Bluetooth through the radio. Seemed pretty straightforward. If my phone rings, the screen says "incoming call" and displays my caller's name as it is in the contacts. All wonderful. But I can't figure out for the life of...
  4. Soul Problems (Gen 3)
    Hi all. Is anyone able to get the album artwork to appear on the radio screen while streaming music via bluetooth? I can get the album artwork to appear when using Apple CarPlay but not while using bluetooth. I tried using Apple CarPlay several times but it seems very quirky (not connecting, no...
  5. Soul Problems (Gen 3)
    Hey all, Recently picked up a 2020 Soul EX, with the upgraded UVO system. I'm having an issue with my cars system not remembering my phone after I pair it. It pairs initially without an issue, but after I turn the car off and leave it for any amount of time it is not saved in the Bluetooth menu...

    Hello everyone, I've got a 2016, base model, manual Soul. I do my best to not let the engine idle for extended periods but I also frequently listen to music through the Bluetooth interface. Obviously, resetting the input after restarting the engine is an annoyance and I've been trying to...
  7. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    To make it short and to the point, sometimes when i start the car, phone connects instantly, bluetooth(music) audio is fine. Sometimes, car takes about 10 seconds to connect, and then the bluetooth audio sounds like garbage. like its low quality. i'm using Spotify and i thought that was the...

    About a year ago, maybe longer, the Bluetooth stopped working on my 2010 Soul. Whether I try voice commands or hit setup on my radio and select phone, I get "System not ready. Please wait a moment." Does anyone know if a fix for this?

    I've replaced my Soul Base standard bluetooth radio with a Pioneer. Is there a market for the perfectly good one I removed, and if so, should I just put it on eBay, or are there buyers in other places? Is the For Sale forum here a good place to try or should I try to sell locally first?

    I was able to set up my LG G5 phone easily with my Soul's head unit. It's the basic one -- not EVO, no nav. However, I have a problem/question. With my previous car (a Nissan Altima), I could make and receive phone calls whether the radio was on or off. However, with the Soul, the buttons on the...

    Gidday... Recently upgraded my phone from a Samsung S5 to the LG G6. The Samsung always worked beautifully to have full SMS connectivity (notification of new message, reading out, sending a new SMS, etc), but I am getting no luck with the G6. When I now use the SMS voice command, the "Kia Lady"...

    Is anyone having bluetooth problems with their iPhones recently? This is happening in my 12 Soul with UVO and my wifes 13 Optima SXL with her iPhone 6. Some times when the phone pairs with infotainment, it looks like you're making a phone call. My phone number shows up on the screen and you...

    We just bought a NEW 2017 Kia and the car only recognizes Apple phone. It will not work with any Android. When you press the Voice Activated button a message shows up saying that you need to hook Siri to the Bluetooth. Any one else have this problem and if so is there a solution to the problem?

    I noticed that although answering an incoming phone call on my Android phone will interrupt SAT audio, the turn-by-turn commands from the Tom-Tom app on the phone will not. I can play them through the car's sound system if I manually select BT audio, but they will not override the SAT music if I...

    Can two iPhones coexist simultaneously as connected devices if only one of them has an active cell plan for phone calls? I have a 5S that is my current phone; can I also "discover" my iPhone 4S for the purpose of just playing music without disturbing the connectivity of my 5S for phone calls...
