Well, I'm not fond of the Navigation in my current version. It can only take two waypoints. I travel from Arizona to Indiana and I want to preload my route with the gas and hotel stops along my route but this damn thing can only take two waypoints at a time. I'm hoping that this is change on the new version. Has anyone downloaded/installed the new software yet? Please tell us your experience. Thanks.

I don't like KIA's "Navigation Updater". It updates NOT only the Navigation System but also the entire Infotainment system! Navigation should be a separate entity which projects only the Navigation System into the display device of the vehicle - like Mazda, etc. The KIA systems analyst really drop the ball on this. They think that "integration" is cool but not to me. That's why I'm still using my trusted Garmin Nuvi 1450LMT.

This is so True! When I purchased the 20201 KIA Seltos S & SX turbo the Entertainment/Navigation was about perfect. THEN I UPDATED IT. See my comments on it. Awful! The entire system was changed for the worse, but this was back in Summer of 2021. Would anyone know if it got better? It states I needed an update again for 2022. Has anyone noticed any change?

I have downloaded and prepared the update USB flash drive but I’m not going to install the update yet on my 2021 SX Turbo. I’ll wait for comments from early updaters. I want to make sure that the feature I want (badly) is in.

I just checked the car - with the latest update you lose the radio tubes that not many people liked, and can now edit/order the list of Sirius and other stations. The purple stuff is still there and you can still only add up to 2 'waypoints' to your route - the final destination + up to 2 waypoints. Attached is a PDF of all the changes that Kia mentions for this May 2022 update. With the update file being so much larger now you would assume that more Points of Interest etc. are included. Some local new roads around here are finally showing in this release.

See Kia Infotainment Update (April 28 2022) post # 36 for instructions I use to do the update.... Not hard, and I'd rather do it than ask the service dept...if you can even get an appt.
