    Hi, Have a 2016 Optima EX (I think - it is the middle model). I had my car serviced as the navigation wasn't working correctly. They replaced the dolphin fin and now it works. He also said they did an update to the system but I still don't see Apple CarPlay on my menu. When I purchased my car...
  2. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Is there a way to use CarPlay wirelessly these days? Are we waiting for a Kia and/or an Apple update? I know if you hold the voice control button down you can ask Siri fir what ever you need, but that is not like having ones iPhone plugged in and using CarPlay like it was meant to be.
  3. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Today for the first time I used Google Maps while my phone was connected to CarPlay. I noticed that the radio will be interrupted for the directions to be given, but the music will not start to play on its own; have to hit the radio button each and every time after a direction is spoken. Does...

    Currently have 2014 Optima EX with Infinity Sound System/Navigation. Just curious if I were to get a head unit that has Apple Car Play in the future, any recommendations. Also, would it add anything to my current system outside of just the Car Play feature?
  5. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Will the 2013 optima sx have an apple car plate upgrade for the infinity technology premium package?

    Downloaded the new iOS and one of the new features of Maps they enabled is to display the turn by turn directions in the instrument cluster if the car enables it. I tried it last night and ours doesn't seem to support it? Has anyone else tried it?

    Just curious what the most affordable way to accomplish this would be. Is it possible to replace the non-Nav with the stock Nav? Is it a simple one-to-one replacement? What's the price of the stock Nav unit? Are their any after-market head-units that would be essentially be plug-n-play? I'm...

    So we finally get more info on the availability of Apple Carplay and Android Auto. It's surprising since we knew Android Auto was out and coming, but Carplay was pegged as late in the year. So for sure only 2015 UVO3 and up Optimas will get it leaving 2014 and older out. KIA MOTORS AMERICA...
  9. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Like the title says, I'm curious whether anyone is actually using these apps. Considering you have to physically tether your phone to the car each time, it seems like a PITA. Especially given the rather limited application for them. Maybe I'm missing something, but unless the rumors are true...

    I just got a Optima 2016, the dealer said the car has Apple Play. When I was called the car was in from another dealer the car wasn't prepped and the SD card was not installed. The tech installed the card but Apple Play was not on it. He went to the service manager and he ordered a SD card...

    It's happening! Customers who already purchased the 2017 Sportage or 2016 Optima equipped with a compatible system will be able to download a free software update that enables CarPlay through the UVO Home website beginning in the third quarter...

    Does anyone know if and when Apple Carplay will be available on the 2016 Optima? It was advertised as having it but as I read through websites it states "late availability." Does this mean only later models will have it or does this mean there will be an update? Given that I am new to Kia, I am...

    The 2016 Optima's DO NOT currently support Apply Carplay at this time, despite being advertised as such by KIA. I spoke with the dealer and they indicated that the deal should be settled about mid-2016, then it should become available. Does anyone know if this will be accomplished via software...
