We purchased a 2021 Kia seltos back in October. From the first week in we have been having “connectivity” issues with Apple CarPlay. It disconnects constantly stating it “doesn’t recognize USB port” and will reconnect again over and over. Yup, I have a compatible USB port. Yup, I’ve had it serviced at KIA to tell me that they are aware of the issue and are “awaiting info on a software update.” I’ve waited another 2 months and called again “with still no update”-I travel for work and using maps that constantly disconnect is more than problematic at this point. Any advice

Never any issues with mine... Maybe your phone. Plug in a different one

I haven’t had issue - works better than other vehicles I’ve had.
Wondering, rather than waiting for Dealership, have you done your own update through the Kia computer software?

Definitely switch cables. I had this problem until I started using OEM cables.

Apple tax sucks, but I would just buy the shortest (3’?) Apple-brand USB-to-lightning cable and keep it in the car. All my favorite cables hardly work in the Seltos
