Did software update on 2021 Seltos. Put in an address no problem. Set as destination though does not work and told to call Kia. Called and told me I need to pay and subscribe to Kia connect.

This is ridiculous. I now have no GPS on the car unless I pay???

Subscribe for Support? Or subscribe for navigation? Curious who told you to subscribe? Kia Helpline?

Not to lessen your grievance, cause its legit. But is there a reason you're not using your Carplay/Android Auto for navigation? Though I haven't actually used the Kia nav yet, I've always felt the phones did a better job of navigation than most of the OEMs. Google Maps, Waze. Both pretty fleshed out.

Thank for the response. Called number stated on screen, which was for Kia Connect. Told that to get navigation needed ultimate pkg for $200 per year.

Yes, i will end up using android phone. Not much of a cell phone user but no choice.

Tune to the radio station you want on Sirius then switch back to Google maps...the radio will still play.

weird, pretty sure mine works with Carplay...
Update: confirmed...no issue on mine, I can go into Sirius, select a station, switch back to home page then Apple CarPlay and radio still plays as per normal. Unless I select my Apple Music app, Sirius will continue to play with Apple maps or Google Maps.

Thank you for your responses. Motivated me to keep trying and was able to get google maps and sirius together!!!

The key is not to use the media button on the console. Rather put sirius on thru the radio button, hit the star button on console. There will be a home symbol on top and hit that, then a menu appears including Android Auto. Hit Android Auto and google maps appears with sirius. Do need to use mode button to change stations but obviously no big deal...thanks again

I guess I'm confused. I have nav in my Seltos. Just did another update a month ago. Everything works fine and I do not have a subscription. My nieghboor's Seltos, same thing and he also doesn't have any subscriptions.

My opinion, using the cell phone while driving is I can't see the small screen. I never had a problem with the KIA nav.

Which update are you referring to? I recently updated my system, in June, and my NAV works fine, unless they did another update in the last few weeks. I'll have to check it out.

Sorry Numb, let me clarify. Connecting your phone via CarPlay or Android Auto, places the phone's nav on the main screen, not your phone so you have the same 10.25" or 8" experience, it's just using Waze or Apple Maps or Google maps powered by your cellphone. You still interact with it via the car's touchscreen.
