    Since I kept reading conflicting info I thought I'd post what I've found. This is for the 2013 with the stock stereo, not the Uvo or anything fancy, I have no idea if other years are the same, but I suspect the 2014 works fine with any old lightening cable - Bluetooth works, but the track...

    My 2014 Soul has Bluetooth for cellphone. When engine starts, it sends a message to cell phone to confirm connection. Sort of annoying that have to do it every time. Is there a way to automatically connect without confirming every time I start the engine?

    Does anybody else have this "soul connection" when you see another Soul in a parking lot or meet another Soul owner? YEARS ago I went to college in tiny college town. I drove a white Camaro and there was ONE guy in town who drove a White Firebird and it was like we were in a special club. When...

    Let me start by saying that I understand that you need to use the Kia iPod connector cable in order to play music and display the info on the Soul's stereo. When I use the Apple provided white USB cable with my iPhone 4, the stereo switches to Aux/other devices, but then the chime occurs every...

    Hi all, I am soon to be a Soul owner, and wanted to know if anyone has tried connecting a sansa product (specifically the fuze) in MSC mode (a usb mode that lets it act as a flash storage device, rather than a media-only device)? In theory it should work the same as putting a flash drive in...
