  1. Hello

    New Member Introductions
    Hey, Just joining the forum to check things out. I got here when I was trying to find a way to easily create a playlist for a USB drive. - It seems that there isn't any really easy way to do it. I would have hoped that it was a simple thing.
  2. USB key for music - reads everything...just won't play the music

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Any ideas? I am new to the Kia Soul family having purchased this 2016 about 2 weeks ago. Completely - my lack of understanding can be 'operator error". I also can't exactly figure out what kind of audio system I have. My audio does not match any pictures/videos anything I can find online...
  3. 2019 KIA SOUL Phone Ringer Sound (From Android) Music Only

    New Member Introductions
    When a phone call comes in, Phone Ringer plays a "musical tune" that is not changeable. I have tried to make the change to something else (possibly a normal "ringing sound") and have not been able to do so. Is the "Musical Ringer Sound" locked in the factory software and cannot be changed? HELP!
  4. USB music - songs sorted alphabetically instead of by track# ?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    New '18 Soul ! owner. Love the Uvo infotainment system, it's a massive upgrade over the Mazda3 system it replaces, in every possible way. One oddity - I've exported all of my iTunes library, in mp3 format, to a USB stick. When I open an album, the tracks are all shown (and play) in alphabetical...
  5. Map & Music

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I have another quick question if I may. I know I was doing it yesterday, but today I couldn't figure out how to listen to the radio while looking at the map. I didn't see instructions on any of the quick guides and I thought I'd ask here before digging through the manual....Thanks
  6. Stereo switching from radio to USB music on its own

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    My Stereo keeps switching from radio to USB music on its own I'll put it back on the radio and before one song it switches back to the USB music. It just started doing this. We've had very cold temps this last week, not sure if that is afecting it. Any ideas?
  7. USB music gets played in alphabetical order SOLVED

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Howdy, The UVO system works fine except one little annoying detail. I like to copy 320 kbps MP3 files by Artist and Album to a USB key and then play that in the Soul. It works fine except when I shut off the vehicle, the player will continue playing the same song that was playing before...
  8. headliner rattle - (this is not a music artist event)

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Not too literate on forums, so I know I read of previous headliner issues (2013's or so), but this Soul is new since October 2016. With windows rolled up, three other doors closed, closing the driver door results each time in a rattling in the roof. Anybody had this in the 2016 Soul models? How...
  9. Playing music thru a USB stick

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hey gang... Quick question. Yesterday I downloaded some music onto a USB stick and played it in the car. It seems the music was a bit tinny sounding on the car system, got me to wondering if all speakers work when playing thru a USB stick... Also, occasionally the music kind of warbles, if that...
  10. Static Buzz while playing Music from iphone through Aux port

    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...
  11. Copy music to car's memory

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Hello! I just got a 2016 Soul Base with a touch screen display. I was able to play music using iPod. But I can not figure out how to copy songs into car's memory (is that the jukebox?). When the song is playing, there is no "copy" button/option on the screen as illustrated on the user manual...
  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. Door Panel Speakers - HELP

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Alright, so out of the blue I started having some issues with my front passenger door speaker. I think it might have blown out. (I don't listen to my music loud or with the bass turned all the way up. At least not since I first got the car. I could care less about every panel of my car shaking...
  14. Voxer vs. Music

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    This may be one of those questions that is difficult to answer or diagnose but it's worth a shot! First let me give some history: I traded in my 2013 Chevy Spark on a 2015 Kia Soul (base) on Tuesday. I love everything about it but admittedly, after 2 years with a touch screen system (MyLink)...
  15. Music issue with iPhone and USB port on UVO eSERVICES WITH NAV

    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...
  16. 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 +...
  17. 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...

    Hi my girlfriend had the idea of putting music on an USB key and plug it in our 2010 soul 4u. It reads the music but no music is coming out ??? Is it possible to get music from a USB key on a soul ??? Thanks
