  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    The 2020 Soul looks great, but Kia's decision to turn it into a collection of disparate trims with few, if any, option packages is frustrating. I thought I'd start a thread where people would list the combination of exterior and interior options they would put together for their ideal 2020 Soul...
  2. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I recently started using the Android Auto app in my car. Really like it a lot. It sure has streamlined and enhanced my Car Mode experience. Streaming from my phone to the headunit via Bluetooth. No USB connection needed. I set the app to auto load. Just turn on Bluetooth when leaving the house...
  3. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Hello, I just got a 2016 Soul + with the Audio upgrade but it doesn't thump enough, I'd like to get a sub put in but my last one from my civic was stolen so I'm hesitant to have something you can see through the back window, also trunk space is limited. I've seen options for a spare tire sub...

    Finished my WiFi only Ipad and GPS Navigation Setup works great large screen GPS with voice commands. Using a WiFi only Ipad, GPS signal comes from a Duel XGPS150A Bluetooth GPS receiver. Bracket in 3 pieces lower bracket using single seat rail bolt stays attached at all times. Solid 4" square...
  5. ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I feel stupid asking this, but I'm stumped… I can't get any contacts from my phone downloaded into the car. Every time I turn on my phone (I don't use it much), the system goes through the "Contact download unsuccessful" voice and it's driving me nuts. I'd rather not call Kia directly. I've...
  6. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi, I have a 2011 Soul and after getting my recall fixed the time was reset and I was trying to set it but the setup button isn't working. Do you know if it's a possibility that one of the wires isn't connected from when they were repairing it?
  7. ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I have a small but annoying problem. My radio used to automatically scroll through the info (song title, artist, station), but a few weeks ago I lost the Sirius signal. I got it reconnected fine, but now I have to hit the info button repeatedly to get it to display the information that used to...
  8. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So I go to kiatechinfo to set up an account, and when I click on the privacy agreement all I get is a blank screen. I've tried disabling the popup blocker, but still nothing. Also tried using Bing and chrome, but still no luck. I'm running Windows 8. Anybody have any ideas?
  9. ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    So I traded in my Mazda for a shiny new 2012 (!) six speed and after logging about 400 miles it is time for an audio upgrade. I work for a reputable shop in my area and will be posting photo's as I go along. As of now I am waiting on 2 components to get in, and praying that Metra gets a move on...
  10. ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I've had my 2010 Soul for nearly 2 years now and it's time to upgrade the (upgraded) stereo. I listen to a lot of techno and drum & bass, and the rear sub just can't produce those deep bass tones. It's been a while since I've done this though, so I wanted to get some advice on how to...
  11. ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I love that I can play my iPod through the system, but I can't stand that I have to turn the knob millions of times to go through my artists. With 4000+ songs, it's quite annoying to find a certain thing you want to listen to. Is there any way to have the ability to find the songs through your...
  12. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    Does anyone out there have experience adding a sub-woofer to a stock 6-speaker head unit? I see a lot of people who take the turn-on lead from their existing 8-speaker stock setup, but curious about where to get that turn-on lead from a setup that doesn't have the factory sub.

  15. ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I just got my new Kia Soul and it came with the upgraded 8-speaker audio system with powered sub. I see the sub in the back and have verified that there are in fact 8 speakers (if you count the sub). The problem I have is that in the features guide it says there should be an option for "Power...
  16. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Very well thought out setup, with the two power outlets and the USB connection right there. Also, I was able to rig up a little setup for my Garmin Nuvi. Just a couple of velcro tabs and voila. If you have the model that has the flip out antenna you might consider this setup. I generally...
