  1. ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Hi guys, it's been a while. I'm posting to see if anyone else is having this issue. Just to be clear, this is the base non-UVO system. When trying to make a voice command, it resisters on the radio that it's listening but then just freezes. Restarting the vehicle doesn't solve the issue but...

    Hello, I am a new member and am loving that we have a sight to post questions and concerns. To start off I have to say that I do love my new Kia Soul. I am having a problem with the voice activation on my Bluetooth connection. Whenever I hit the button to call out the screen asks for a Siri...

    It was all user error. I have to learn to wait until the 'beep' to talk. :)
  5. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi, I have a 2010 Soul. For at least the last several years (I don't believe this was the case from the start) whenever anyone calls the car (whether from a landline, cell phone) they hear what they are saying in feedback. It's highly distracting - you basically have to ignore what you're...

    Hey Guys, I have not posted in a long time but have always gotten good advice from everyone. I originally had a 2010 Silver Kia Soul Sport, Upgraded to a 2012! Silver AGAIN...which I still have and love. Well I finally convinced my wife to get a new one. She was at the end of her Nissan...

    how do you turn on/off the voice prompts? I wonder if I have done this by accident ( turned off ) as my voice recognition is suddenly not working the past few days on my 2011 Kia Soul, with factory installed Bluetooth. I push the button on the steering wheel to make a call and nothing happens...

    This is my third Soul, and I do not expect the LOSS of certain features. You can no longer tell your Soul to play a certain iPod selection. In my 2010 and my 2012, voicing "play iPod album The Second Law" would satisfy my urge to listen to the newest Muse album. In my 2014, that is inexplicably...

    Hello, we just bought a 2013 KIA SOUL 2.0 and trying to figure out how to have the google maps voice that says the directions play through the radio as the turns come up... any suggestions ?
  10. ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Hi All I just bought a 2011 UK model ("Tempest" edition) and love it. However I've got a really weird issue with the bluetooth voice dialing... If I say "Call", "By name", and then the name it seems to (mostly) recognise the name OK, but when it reads-back the name it's pronouncing the letter...

    My phone voice command thingee no longer recognizes my commands. It did but now does not. It finds contacts only remotely related to the actual contact. It's ridiculous and unsafe. Is there a way to reprogram it? My phone is a Samsung G3 Thanks
  12. ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I was just on my way to the post office to mail the Note 3 back to T-Mobile for an exchange - I thought I would try out my older Samsung S3 on the way there with google maps navigation and the same thing happened - no voice but the map was there and followed where you were going. As soon as I...

    Fellow forum members, Posting this again since here I am months later with no progress on this, and KIA is not providing any answers via phone either. Going to the dealership is a last-resort option as they won't even know what I'm talking about (seriously) I am trying to determine if my new...

    Guys, I'm trying to activate what is referred to in the manual as "Audio Speaker Adaptation" which is supposed to let the Soul tailor its voice recognition to a particular voice. To activate, you are supposed to press and hold for 10 seconds the "hang up phone" button on the lower left of the...

    I have a new 2013 Soul. The Bluetooth voice activation worked when I took delivery. I have an Android phone and for the last few days, the voice activation is hit or miss. When I try to use voice activation, the system tells me "please wait." if I dial from the phone, sometimes that works, but...
  17. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have a 2013 Soul (10 days old) and the instructions for my phone, I have already been using the bluetooth with my phone but want better voice recognition, say to hold the end call button for 10 seconds to get a prompt. Nothing happens. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I'm unable to get my UVO to function to voice commands. Tried to create another voice profile but can't get past the first of the training set. Its like it can't hear ~ Any insights? I refreshed the factory defaults w/o any change ~
  19. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    When I first got my SOUL I could voice dial. This has not been working. I can answer calls with no problem but to dial I have to dial from my phone. Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it? Thanks. :(
  20. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello - I have had my Soul for a year and have had no problems with voice recognition with my iPhone 4 - I would press the call button, say "call [name]" and all was fine. I just got the iPhone 4S and when I say "call [name]" it no longer recognizes the name I say and comes back with a...
