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?

The last time I had contacted the dealer a week ago they didn’t mention anything about doing my own update? Do you know how I could go about this?

I followed links from the Kia website. And you can download map software for your computer. It updates maps and the software on the car via USB
