  1. 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...
  2. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My 2013 exclaim works great, very reliable. Except I've never been able to use the USB port with my iPhone, not for playing music or even for power. I had one of those special cables with the 3.5mm audio pin and Lightning jack, but those never worked and now the newer iPhones don't even have an...
  3. 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.
  4. 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...

    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...
  6. ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    I have upgraded my 2014 for a 2018 Soul!. When I try to listen to the music on my USB it takes a while to load, and then the songs skip. Does anyone have a recommended size 16GB,32GB/.02,.03/brand, etc??
  7. 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?
  8. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    This has baffled myself and my dealership, so I figured I would see if anyone on here might have a suggestion. I have a strange issue with the USB connection under the radio. First a little background. Purchased my Turbo back in April and had it modified with a wheelchair ramp in May. Picked...

    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...
  10. 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...
  11. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    **Creating this one since Iphone is not involved, but may be similar to another thread. ** So this has happened twice. I have a cheap phone that attaches via Bluetooth - (not a smartphone) - and use USB drive for music. Twice a series of LOUD popping noises started happening while listening...

    There have been some other posts about the UVO system's limitations in how it sorts files, but they are all pretty old. I just got a new 2016 Soul Primo-package last week as an upgrade from a 2014 Base, and I'm kinda gobsmacked at how much less intuitive the UVO system is over the base radio. I...
  13. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I love my new 2016 Kia Soul Exclaim. What would be even cooler is if the Slideshow would actually play while you were driving. I understand that it's a safety feature but honestly the UVO display is just as distracting anyway. Seems like there would be a way around it. Any thoughts? Thanks!
  14. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I use my USB port to charge my cell. Not always but often the Soul sound system thinks the presence of a device means I want to play MP3 files and so I get a message: "Searching for media" and the system continues to interrupt the radio with this constant searching. At other times, I have no...
  15. ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    OK, so I thought I'd load all my music onto a thumb drive and leave it in the car (2015 ! Whole Shabang). I put 1 album onto a 64gb drive I have formatted to exFAT and the car couldn't recognize it. I've looked through my manuals and can't any specifications for this and am hoping some here...
  16. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hey all I tried doing a search and didn’t see what I was looking for. So if this is a post that has already been covered sorry. I have a 2015 Kia Soul ! with the UVO/Nav and all that fun stuff. It seems like that the USB port can only take FAT32. That being said that’s pretty much only 32GB...
  17. 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...
  18. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    About 3 weeks ago my phone was not connecting to my soul. It worked perfectly for 6 months now it doesn't communicate at all. I went back to the dealer and he reset my radio. It worked correctly half the 70 mile trip. He said there equipment showed the USB port was functioning correctly. I use...
  19. ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Can the USB port in the Kia be used for anything else other than accessing MP3 files from a flash drive ? Specifically I was wondering if it would be safe and would it work if I connected my phone thru that USB port ? Would the phonebook be available thru the USB if it wasn't able to be...
  20. ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Okay, über n00b question here. I'm positive it's been asked before, but can't find any exact information on it. Plugging an iPhone 5s either via USB connect or Bluetooth- no alert sounds whatsoever from the phone itself. Only when playing music on iphone via media mode will an alert sound, via...
