I'm not holding my breath but if I didn't have factory navigation, like the 2020 Santa Fe we sold for this Seltos, I wouldn't use Android Auto as much as I should - just hated connecting it each time, and then forgetting the phone in the car etc. If you have the smaller screen (no factory navigation), apparently you set it up once and then it connects automatically when you get in the car and away you go... Leave your phone in your pocket or whatever. That would be good. I'm glad I have the factory navigation - at my age I use it as much so I don't forget where I'm going next as for the directions! hahahah 馃懘

The factory navigation has been a big disappointment for me, has let me down numerous times. When it does I would love to just connect google maps wirelessly which is possible I guess on the smaller displays not the SX display :(

I've had 98% good luck with the factory navigation including on a recent 2,500 mile trip up to Washington State. But about 2 miles from here, there is a new very valuable shortcut street that was built over a year ago, but it's still not on the latest June updates from kia - Google maps readily tells me to use it - that's good because I keep forgetting about it!

I put the May update in my 10.25inch Sorento here in Australia about a month ago. Wow, what a huge predictable dissapointment. The out of date by 4 years map is now only out of date by 3 years! I suppose Kia can call it an upgrade?
The school zone warnings are still out by a block (not even in front of the actual school but one street over!).
The 100km/hr speed camera warning is still there. This camera was dug up 3 years ago when they put the new 110km/hr motorway in.
So annoying the overriding (can't shut this off like I can the school zone) bing, bing BING when I am listening to something on the radio.
The speed zones that show on the HUD are all over the place especially on the road from the motorway to my town. If Kia wants us to have a safe car to drive (safe for not only the occupants, but also for other people in cars or pedestrians) then let us have an auto loading wireless connection to our phones so a reliable navigation assistance is enabled. Also enable the speed sign recognition to work as per the UK version of my model. I'd rather a slightly hit and miss speed sign recognition than the totally always useless and dangerous loaded map from Kia. Come on Kia, safety, customer satisfaction, must equal improved reputation for your cars.
