  1. Save/upload MP3s?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 3)
    On my previous car (2017 Elantra) I could save music (mp3s) to the car's hard drive. I looked to do this today via a USB drive, but didn't see any way to do so. I looked at how this was done on the Gen 2 Soul, but isn't the same. I'll attach the photos of the menus as well as the QR code...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi, I just purchased a 2010 kia soul+...I set up Bluetooth and it recognizes phone, I can make and take calls, but when I plug my iphone5 into usb port to try and play music, it makes a repeating tone noise and a little message screen pops up and go's out repeatedly and finally stays on that...
  6. MP3 file information display -- what tags needed?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    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."...

  8. Using MP3 Player

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I just purchased my 2014 SOUL and it has 2 power plugs, a USB and an AUX. I have never used an MP3 player and would like to know how to play my own music in my KIA. I feel just a little bit dumb as I am sure it is probably simple. Also, if I plug in a thumb drive into the USB will it play the...
  9. USB drive in 2012 Soul Base

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Non-UVO system. Radio reads the USB drive and presents the song/file names, but never plays. Displays 00:00 while it scrolls the title a few times before flipping to next title. Tried all the tricks of formatting drive to FAT32, no DRM, all files are mp3 and less than 320 kbps. Tried 4 different...
  10. iPhone5 and mp3 issue.

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi, I have a minor issue. Not sure if it's with the phone or the Kia. The phone is an iPhone 5. The car is a 2014 Soul+ with the Audio Package. So this is what happens...I plug the phone into the USB port and queue up an album to play by any artist. The first song plays for about 1 minute...
  11. MP3 Only! no WAV or FLAC? Boooo

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Infinity system with UVO and only MP3's. I am a bit of an audiophile and prefer the CD quality formats such as WAV or FLAC. Any suggestions?
  12. Vocal MP3 through AUX is clipping words

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I was trying to play an audio book via a walkman in the AUX port and if there is a slight pause in speech, the beginning of the next word is clipped. So, if someone were saying "Hello Harry", it comes out "ello arry". I assume this is some kind of system noise reduction, as the same setup works...
  13. Inserting CD w/ MP3s = Reading Error...??

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I'd like to play MP3s from a CD. I figured I could just load MP3s onto a CD, pop it in, it would read it as MP3 files and begin to play them. However, when I slip the disc in, it studies it for a few seconds, tells me it's a "Reading Error" and spits it out. I've scoured this forum but...
  14. UVO: MP3s on thumb drive not in order

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I have a 2012 Kia Soul + when I play MP3s with my thumb drive the songs no not play in order. I even added numbers to the titles: 1,2,3.. and so on but the screen displays them in what seems a random order. I do not have random turned on either. I have seen this topic touched on before but there...
  15. Frustrations with UVO and mp3 CD's/playlists

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I normally use a CD burned full of MP3's instead of a iPod or USB stick. CD is cheaper to replace. That being said, I noticed that my Kia's UVO system will NOT play songs in track order, only by song title alpha or by one of the other categories. This is really annoying me because I create my...
  16. Mp3 player issues

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I just got my Soul+ a week ago and just tried to access an Mp3 player, not an Ipod. I was told at the dealershi only Ipods work. True? if so that is so lame!
  17. MP3 and Aux

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I just bought an MP3 player (Sony Walkman) for my husband. I tried to plug it in the Aux outlet to play on the radio. We own a 2010 Soul - base model. The music plays but it is very slow and distorted. The cable is new. I wonder if it is defective or if there is a problem with the outlet and/or...
  18. MP3 player-counting down-NOT UP??

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I love the MP3 player, using an 8gig USP flash drive. It works fine but has anyone figured out how to make the song time count down instead of up? I would like it to start at the total time for the song ex. 3:40 then count down to 0. The manual didn't mention it and I've played with the...
  19. Random Play MP3

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I have the stock stereo on my 2011 Kia 2U (Canada). In it I have a CD loaded with MP3s. Kia manual states that if I press the Random button it will play random songs in one folder (Folder holds AC-DC Back and Black, all that plays is Back in Black, randomly). If I hold the random button down...
  20. Using Mp3 player instead of iPod?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Hey all, I just bought a Soul last night and I really love it. However, I have read confusing things about using a phone/mp3 player instead of an iPod with the sound system. Is there a way to do this? Do I need to buy a special cable or can I use the cable I use to charge with currently?
