  1. 2015 Soul Base classic iPod not working

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    I recently bought a 2015 Soul Base, and the owner's manual says it supports the iPod classic. So I bought the funky Aux/USB iPod cable, but it doesn't work. When I plug it in, the radio display says "AUX Connected," but then nothing else ever happens. Even if I start the iPod playing music...
  2. Anyone use this Bluetooth 30-pin adapter with their iPod cable, and does it pair?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1) Just wondering if it works in our Kia Souls and if it displays song information on the display?
  3. iPod "Comm Error"

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    At first this issue was intermittent, but lately it's been occurring more and more often. Sometimes i have to detach and reinsert the iPod cable several times and restart my iPod in one setting. My iPod will be playing fine and then all of a sudden the audio stops, the song time freezes and...
  4. Ipod not playing music on car stereo

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Just got an older 5th gen Ipod 30 gig mp3 player. Using the factory supplied dual cable connector, i can get control of the device but no sound through the speakers. Kind of frustrating as the only reason i went with the ipod was the ability to use it with my stereo. Car is a 2013 Kia Soul +...
  5. Cannot connect new iPod Nano to my 2013 Kia Soul

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I recently purchased a 2013 Kia Soul (Base) and just tried to connect my new iPod Nano to it. I get a "Reading Error" message every time. This is the non-UVO audio system with the "iPod" connection that had a stereo jack and USB jack, if that's any help. I purchases a cable on eBay that was...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I am thinking of buying the iPod touch5 64 gb to work with my bluetooth. I have a 2014 Ka Soul+ and want to know if this will work?
  7. iPod placement

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I am going to try another question in the ICE & Communication (even though it seems there are not too many answers/opinions on the subjects). I may be classified as "old school" because I keep my music and smartphone separate, but I like having an iPod for my music. While it has been discussed...
  8. iPod - Searching thru Artist's/Albums

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    OK, so I found an old thread from 2009 addressing this, but was just wondering if anyone has found/heard of a way recently. I have a 2013 with the touch screen nav system. I use my iPod pretty regularly, and on my old after market radio I could search to "Artist" and then press a button to...
  9. USB Ipod Question

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hi All, I have a 2011 Alien Kia Soul. I've been using the dealer supplied Kia USB Aux Ipod Cable. When all of a sudden today it would display my ipod as playing, and was charging the ipod, so I know that the USB is working. But I was getting no sound out of the speakers. Although I do get sound...
  10. iPod Voice Command

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    This is my third Soul, and I do not expect the LOSS of certain features. You can no longer tell your Soul to play a certain iPod selection. In my 2010 and my 2012, voicing "play iPod album The Second Law" would satisfy my urge to listen to the newest Muse album. In my 2014, that is inexplicably...
  11. iPhone 5S - IPOD no longer loads...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    After upgrading to the latest OS for the IPhone 5S, the IPOD doesn't load. Once the phone transfers the Screen shows the IPOD is loading but it stays stuck like that and does not load. I deleted the phone and paired it to the system again but it did not work. Does anyone know how to fix this...

  13. 2014 +Soul and iPod classic problem

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Hello, I just purchased the 2014 Soul + with standard audio system (no nav). I also purchased the Kia iPod aux + usb cable from the dealer. I have the old iPod classic; when I hook it up to the aux+usb cable my display on the Soul reads "Aux connected". I can play the music through the...
  14. Kia iPod cable not needed

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    This is news to me at least , I just figured out all you need to connect your apple product to 2014 models is Apples USB cable , the same one that came with your phone . This allows you to charge , and use the pandora app that is on the NAV. Equipped radio . I had tried the Kia iPod cable...
  15. ipod connection not recognized on 2014 soul

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Anyone else have problem with their ipod not showing up on their head unit. Mine only recognizes and an aux device so I have to still control by messing with the ipod. Does the 2014 have a new ipod cable or does the 2012 one work on it too?
  16. Something special about Kia iPod cable?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Do I need to buy the iPod (nano) cable from Kia or is it something I can get elsewhere? Like everything Apple the price seems a little excessive.
  17. iPOd FWD and REV controls

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I hate to post another iPod thread, but after wading thru 6 pages of search results I did not see anything. I have a 2013 base M/T. I hook my iPod up thru the special Kia iPod cable. I can use the ^ V arrows on my steering wheel to change to the next item. I listen to lots of talk podcast...

    So I got a new iPod Touch as a gift (yays!) and instantly thought crap...this won't play in my Hamsterball because I have the old Ipod Adapter for the iPod Touch/Phone. I tried an adapter from Amazon that I bought and unfortunately did not work sadly. Does anyone here know of an adapter that...
