    The radio and backup camera display went into a whiteout mode yesterday on my 2016 Soul Plus. Anyone know the likely cause and cost to repair?

    We have a 2013 2u with the non-UVO stereo unit. Bluetooth works solid, but I'd like to have Spotify track information displayed and controlled through the wheel. Plugging it in through the USB port doesn't work, nor does Bluetooth. I've tried searching here and on the web, but can't come up with...

    Hey Everyone! My Fiance and I bought our 2013 Soul brand new and have been loving it and haven't had any problems until today... The instrument cluster that displays the odometer, trips, temperature, etc. between the tach and speedo has turned blank (off). We discovered this forum and tried...

    I have a 2015 Soul and I've tried and tried to display correct time. It's always an hour in front??? I've changed it over to manual time on several occasions and after about 3 days it changes back to GPRS and the wrong time. Please can anyone help me? I've checked that it in UK setting.

    I just bought my soul yesterday and I've been trying to figure out how to add images to the display screen. the image icon is greyed out and can't be accessed, even when my iPhone is hooked up through the usb port. What do I need to do to add them?

    Hi Everyone! I drive a 2012 Kia Soul base with an AC170CSAN display. I had a dead battery and after a jumpstart, the radio and the display are not working. All the other dashboard lights and gauges are still operable. I checked some of the fuses that made sense and they were fine, but I don't...

    How do you turn of the maps and radio display to just show the clock display? When pressing the volume button, the home screen stays on with the map displayed on the left and A/V Off displayed on the right. I want to know how to only display the time on the screen.

    How do you turn off both the radio and the map to just have the clock display on the screen? I know pressing the volume button will turn of the radio, but the home screen continues to display with the map on the left and A/V Off on the right. I want to only display the time!

    Does anyone have any idea what this red asterisk means? It's on my head end unit, where all the symbols are for Bluetooth, etc. Click on this little image and you will see it larger. Answering my own query here. I'd never seen it before I did the UVO upgrade. This red asterisk (star) shows...

    I have a 2014 KIA Soul + model with the advanced audio/GPS system. I am trying to figure out what tags the audio player reads on my MP3 files. I tagged a bunch of files with full ID3, version 2 tags, but the display only shows the filename and lists album, artist, and song title as "unknown."...

    Solved - question about average MPG display Hello! I did a search for this but no luck. I have a 2014 Soul !, and was wondering if there was anything that showed average MPG. I know there is an average MPG while driving, but it looks to reset (or update) every 10 miles, as opposed to from...

    Sometimes I get the current drive trip with dashes. (see pix below of drive trip with & without info) Did it a few times past couple of days...I think I figured it out. I let the system check go through it's cycle and all idiot lights not supposed to be on are off. And WAIT until after the...

    Just bought a 2013 Soul and love it. There is one minor thing I would like to change and wonder if it is even possible so I am reaching out to anyone who might know. On my display the radio station I have on is huge and the clock time is tiny in the right hand corner. I would like them to be the...

    I have a small but annoying problem. My radio used to automatically scroll through the info (song title, artist, station), but a few weeks ago I lost the Sirius signal. I got it reconnected fine, but now I have to hit the info button repeatedly to get it to display the information that used to...

    I cannot see my Soul's trip computer display in broad daylight as the luminence appears to be inadequate, even after adjustment by the agent. Is this normal or would the instrument perhaps be faulty?

    Hello forum members, I just bought a 2013 soul with the uvo system. I have been listening to the music on my windows phone via Bluetooth. Ever since day one it has been showing the name of the song playing and then after running an errand and starting up the system, it has not been showing the...

    This is for all of you Soulsters with M/T. Does the dash display what gear you are in on the manual trannys the way it does on the automatics? When I drove a base M/T the only way I could tell what gear I was in (past 3rd) was by watching the tachometer. Just curious.

    I've noticed that the name of the songs will display randomly. If not I can't figure it out. When I play music via bluetooth, sometimes the name of the song will be displayed which is nice. Most of the time, it just won't display. It's not the file either. Same songs will sometimes show title...
