  1. 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...

    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...

  4. Behavior of speakers when playing spoken word audio - Bluetooth vs. USB connected

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    (I initially and mistakenly posted this in the thread for the earlier models… reposting it here.) Hello, I have a 2015 with sight+sound package. I have an older iPod Nano that only has spoken word audio files on it, and it only connects through the USB cable. After pauses in the playback...
  5. Behavior of speakers when playing spoken word audio - Bluetooth vs. USB connected

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello, I have a 2015 with sight+sound package. I have an older iPod Nano that only has spoken word audio files on it, and it only connects through the USB cable. After pauses in the playback (natural for spoken word) the speaker will drop portions of the playback. This does not happen with my...
  6. 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 +...

  8. UVO CD player starts playing slightly late

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Anybody else have that problem? The downbeat of a song gets cut off on most CDs I play in the UVO player. It's probably less than a second that gets cut, but pretty annoying.
  9. How to stop your iPhone playing music when attached with the Kia Cable

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi This might seem a strange thing to want to do but I've seen a few threads asking a similar question. I like to have my iPhone charging at times with the Kia cable whilst listening to directions on my iPhones tomtom app through the Kia stereo but I want to be able to do this without it...
  10. Trouble Playing Music From A Flash Drive

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi I recently bought a 2013 Soul Base Six Speed on November 6th. After reading up on the stereo I learned that you can play music off of a flash drive which seemed like a good idea. I figured its better to carry around a 7 dollar flash drive than my 150 dollar mp3 player. After loading my flash...
  11. Iphone 3gs randomly stops playing...

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    ...or rather, if I start the car and plug it in, it immediately recognizes the Iphone and begins playing from the Ipod library. As soon as the bluetooth connects - the sound stops coming through. The phone is still playing music, but no sound happens. So, I have to unplug the cable, and plug...
  12. iPhone apps not stopping iPod playing

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    When I first got my soul back in May of 2010 I could play anything from anywhere on my phone (safari, pandora, youtube, apps, etc...) through my OEM kia ipod plug. It worked just fine for several months and now I can't listen to anything except for my iPod music through it. I didn't notice if it...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I just bought a 2011 a few days ago and got the adapter to plug my iphone 4 in because I use it as my ipod. When I plug it in I get an error message saying the iphone is not optimized for the radio. I am still able to play music but cannot control what I am listening to from my phone. Is this...
  15. Turn off key, radio keeps playing

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    After 20k miles, this happens all of a sudden, we must have pressed a few buttons unknowingly, My Ford P/U does this but when you open doors it turns off, the Soul radio stays on for about 15-20 seconds even if you open the door?? Is this a feature that turns on and off? I search the manual but...
