  1. iPhone 7 Holder

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    A search put me nowhere. I have an i7 phone and I've bought a couple of generic phone-holders which proved useless. I'm looking for something that sticks to the windshield, a supporting arm that sits on the dash is optional, whatever has worked best for you guys. Much appreciated. My Garmin...
  2. iphone contacts download issue

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Hello everyone I'm still somewhat new. I have had my 2016 Soul base for a few weeks now. I have searched the forums, but haven't seen my specific issue. When I pair my iphone it downloads my contacts and it all seems to work fine. But then I went to call someone that is listed in my...
  3. 3rd time Kia owner

    New Member Introductions
    Bought my 3rd KIA,traded in my 2013 Soul for a 2017 Soul, wish I would have kept my old car, this new car only accepts Apple iPhone for voice recognition and KIA knew this and forgot to tell me about this until AFTER I bought the car, I suggested if that is the case then KIA needs to supply...
  4. Spotify display and wheel control from iPhone 7?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    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...
  5. iPhone and Bluetooth issues

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    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...
  6. 2013 iPhone connection with standard head unit

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    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...
  7. Popping stereo speaker noise - Bluetooth phone attached, usb - no Iphone or anything

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    **Creating this one since Iphone is not involved, but may be similar to another thread. ** So this has happened twice. I have a cheap phone that attaches via Bluetooth - (not a smartphone) - and use USB drive for music. Twice a series of LOUD popping noises started happening while listening...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    First time poster on this website WHOOOP! Anyway, I have a 2011 Soul and have been pleasantly surprised with the lack of maintenance it has needed so far. It has 83,000 miles and is running well. However, I am having a problem with my stereo system when I play music from iPhone and connect it...
  9. 2016 Soul + stereo re-pairing with iPhone, downloading contacts

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hello, I've searched through the forums and found a couple threads regarding this topic but none of them offered a fix, they're all about a year old so I'm hoping that someone might have more modern insight. I have a brand new, 2016 Kia Soul + with the 8" navigation stereo option. I paired my...

  11. 2016 Kia Soul and blue tooth integration with iPhone

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    We bought 2016 Kia Soul 4 days back. It is Base automatic. We love it. The Bluetooth integration with my iPhone for making/receiving calls seem to work as expected. But playing Music sometimes doesn't. I ran into couple of problems. 1) When Blue tooth media is selected, songs on my iPhone don't...
  12. iPhone USB Question about music and Apps such as Pandora

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Is there a way to disable the UVO stereo system from automatically playing music from your iPhone when you plug it in via USB? Each time I plug my iphone in, the system automatically starts playing music from my iPhone's "music" library. Then no matter what I chose to play, it will only play...
  13. iPhone user? Are you running iOS 9 beta (radio question)?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I have had my Soul for about 3 days now and so far I am loving it (2012). One thing I noticed is that when using handsfree calling, I give the command "call" and then the radio proceeds to allow me to say WHO I want to call but it NEVER works. It acknowledges my call command and even...
  14. iphone USB connect = no alerts?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Okay, über n00b question here. I'm positive it's been asked before, but can't find any exact information on it. Plugging an iPhone 5s either via USB connect or Bluetooth- no alert sounds whatsoever from the phone itself. Only when playing music on iphone via media mode will an alert sound, via...

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Has anyone had any issues with playing the iPod music from your iPhone while connected to the USB port? It works great for me until I receive a phone call then it will not restart. Before I updated the software to ST.PS.USA.E433.140821 the issue was that it would not retain my place in the...

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    During a call using bluetooth and an iphone 5, they speaker goes off. I can hear them but they can no longer hear me. I have to switch to private call to maintain the call. I have to end the call and call back to get it back so I can speak. Why?

    Hey guys I still drive my 2010 soul and just updated from my iphone 4s to a 6 so of course this means a new way to charge and play. Anyway I bought some 30 pin to lightning adapters but none have worked. Anyone know if the Apple version will work? Lightning to 30-pin Adapter (0.2 m) - Apple...

    we have a 2011 Soul (plus, special edition) and the bluetooth has had issues. firstly, when my wife connects to the BT with her iphone 4, and attempts to place calls, the BT often mistakes her requests for other numbers, and also repeats her request in a very low voice, almost impossible to...
  20. 2014 Kia Soul iPhone 6 music controls

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I own a 2014 base model automatic Kia Soul. When I plug my iphone 6 in with the apple phone cable and try to use my car to change the song, sometimes it doesn't work. When I use Bluetooth, it works just fine. The only reason I use the cord is because the sound is louder and clearer than...
