Hi, new owner here of a 2019 black soul +. I'm trying to see if there's an update to the uvo software but whenever I go to the site through links to the updates, it always takes me to the landing/login page. Based on what I've googled, there may be a sd card somewhere around the head unit that I can take out and write the update to. However, I don't see any SD card slot on my head unit. Can I just load it into a flash drive, plug it in the USB port, and update that way? I don't even know if it needs an update as I already have access to Android auto and carplay.

Any help appreciated.

I got absolutely no idea what the answers to your questions are, but welcome to the hamster house anyhow!

Welcome. It should be at the top of the unit in the center. I have the nav unit with the fancy radio (totally not worth the money). I did not even notice it there until I tried to update the software. But I do not believe that there is a connection between that sd card and UVO. Did you go to the UVO site and open an account to register your UVO? If not, then that is step one.

I have a 2015! Soul and while I was able to perform the software update to get Android Auto and Carplay back in June 2018 - it is my understanding that the AA/Carplay update is only available for UVO with Navigation. In addition, Kia/Hyundai have put the update on HOLD. But will be rolling it out sometime in early 2019. The customer service rep that I chatted with did not know exactly when it would be available.

In my 2015 Soul ! the SD card slot is located in the center above the Touchscreen. I did indeed use it to update both the map data for my navigation as well as add Android Auto and Apple Carplay.

I did register for an account. I guess I'll wait to hear more on the update based on the comment above about being on hold. Thanks
