There is a map AND SYSTEM update coming out in a few days I am wondering if KIA includes any free map updates with a a new vehicle.
The NAV is no big deal as there are so many other options but there also will be a ent system upgrade with it (and probably other stuff likely BT and Carplay ???).

I called Kia and they said I had to pay for it then I went to the map website and it was basically free. I had to pay $25 for the usb sticks they send It on plus $6 shipping but even that would be free if I waited till May when a free download would be available. Originally it said July for downloading but they just changed it so I should have waited 2 weeks.

Thanks for that info. So are you going to download to an USB or an SD Card? I can't find an SD slot so will a USB work?

Just got it in the mail today. You need to put it on a thumb drive if you download it . For the $31 ($25 + $6 shipping) it included a 64gig thumb drive. If you have a place I can upload 49GB of files I'll send it. My Dropbox will only take 18GB.

Thanks, but I'll download it. I'm used to doing that with a Garmin. Glad you helped me out.

I do not get the option for downloading the map update on the site. Do you have to request the download or am I missing it on the site?

The download option is noted as arriving on May 15. I'm hoping it will show up then. (Friday)

I actually contacted mapnsoft asking when they week release the download. I own a 2020 Kia Soul Gt Turbo. They wrote right back saying that for my car I would need to purchase the software and that it will not be released as a download. I then checked all of the 2020 Kia’s and 21 Seltos and no car had a free download, all have to be purchased. Pretty crappy if you ask me.

If anyone has the update and is willing to upload it, Google Drive should be able to handle it.

Posted this in another discussion, but what about a torrent? Or is that a big no? I have a ton of USB drives and don't care about doing the PC thing. I'm more concerned about 60 min to update the damn radio lol.

Update only took 10-15 mins. Instruction sheets they sent says do fast update. Only do regular update if 1st time installing
