    Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    I bought my new 2020 Kia Soul S just about a month ago. After loading Android Auto into my phone I plugged it into the USB port and my phone contacts showed up on the screen. A couple days ago something changed. Instead of finding my contacts I'm now forced to "dial" my phone numbers. My...

  4. 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!
  5. What do you do with your phone if you use Android Auto?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I'm wondering if anyone has any clever ideas for what do you with your phone, while it is connected to the USB port, when using Android Auto. Currently, I just have my cord wrapped up in a zip tie, connected to and stashed under my phone, while it sits in the little cubby hole area below the...

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Vent? Suction cup? CD mount? Can you take a picture of where it is at, as I want to it to be in a spot that is easily seen while driving and able to interact with, if necessary. As in, map navigation, music, answering phone calls, etc.
  9. Bluetooth Phone calling

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I was able to set up my LG G5 phone easily with my Soul's head unit. It's the basic one -- not EVO, no nav. However, I have a problem/question. With my previous car (a Nissan Altima), I could make and receive phone calls whether the radio was on or off. However, with the Soul, the buttons on the...

  11. Wireless phone charger

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    So I discovered that Kia makes a nifty wireless phone charger for qi enabled phones! Way cool! It is designed to plop into the little tray area below the 12v and USB ports. But my budget won't handle that nifty device. [emoji20] However, I already have a portable wireless Samsung charger...
