  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Hello Guys, 1. I recently brought KIA Optima 2016 sxl turbo to Nigeria in Africa. I have tried several times to change the GPS coverage from US to Nigeria but no success. 2. Also, how do i play youtube videos on the car screen via internet? Can anyone help me? pretty important
  2. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I have a 2013 EX with the full size factory navigation head unit and infinity sound system - These days the NaV and uvo system has become pretty obsolete and is very laggy. I’d like to upgrade it with something real nice that also has wireless apple car play. What head units have people...

    I recently purchased a 2016 Optima EX and when I plug an address into the navigation it won't find any results. Do I have to have a UVO subscription for the GPS to work? It worked for me just once, and I can't figure out what Idid to make it work that one time. Any tips or advice?

    Anyone have any info experience on this model head unit...

    I have a 2011 Kia Optima SX. How do i upgrade the navigation software to a more recent version. In addition, where can i get the update?

    I've seen a bunch of threads about how annoying it is to have to click on the "I Agree" button every time you start the car on a 2014 with navi. And none of them have an answer on how to fix it. Well... a software update fixes it. I reluctantly dropped the $149 to do the software/map update...

    Hi all, My name is Ron and I am a first time Kia owner of a 2014 Optima LX. Can the radio be upgraded to the ones that have the navigation built in? Plug and play? or ???? Will I loose any functionality (steering wheel controls, aux in, usb etc) Thanks Ron

    Saw this on a facebook post. Looks cool, just wondering if this is only compatible with the EX trim with auto AC?? I have an LX with the manual AC, and I currently have a android aftermarket player. This one is looks interesting and I'm considering upgrading to this.... Link...
  9. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    This has probably been cussed and discussed before, but seriously ... why can I say to my phone, "Navigate to 123 Elm Street, Anywhere", and it almost instantaneously charts a course and tells me how to get there, yet it takes our in-car nav several long minutes and several tedious steps to do...

    Hello, so i just purchased a 2012 Kia Optima SX and I would like to change the factory voice. Is that possible?
  11. The Service Center
    So, last month I was driving and all of a sudden the GPS map showed I was driving through a lake. I have rest it and downloaded the software to update it and that hasn't helped. It also no longer shows the clock - anyone have this problem. Kia sounded baffled when I called them but said they...
  12. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I want to make sure I understand this correctly. The UVO system controls the radio, etc. The navigation system is just that, the maps. So, when you upgrade the software are those two separate pieces of software? It looks as though the UVO upgrade now comes with Apple Car Play, unless you...

    So, I realized after I purchased my 2014 Optima EX that map updates appear to cost $150. Is there any way to update the nav software for free or is paying this crazy amount the only option? I would of asked the dealer to include the new version before making the purchase on Saturday. I wonder...

    My name is Barbara from NJ. I'm baffled as it seems to have everything else except a slot to insert a CD. thanks for your help.
  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Can you do navigation updates from the internet or must it be from the dealer only?
  16. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    Has anyone done this replacement? I recently cracked my touchscreen, the underlying LCD screen is fine and I'm trying to find a relatively inexpensive alternative since it seems the two are separate. I contacted UNAVI and I can buy the two together only and it runs $400. Hoping for a cheaper...
  17. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So recently I updated my maps to version 10. Good notable changes and faster loading times. But the biggest change I noticed is that now I have Sirius traffic monitoring? I know I had that before as a trialed and let it die once my trial ended. Currently I have Siriusxm but not their traffic...
  18. The Service Center
    Hey Guys, had the car in for service I'm in Canada, and the system is now set to US - in the nav system when I go to enter a destination I can't enter anything in Canada only US. The dealer showed me how to enter this section where you can change all sorts of features, but I have forgotten...

    Hello all, I have an Optima that came from factory navigation and infinity audio. I believe this makes it hard to upgrade the head unit since the HVAC controls are integrated. I was just curious if I can take the HVAC screen from the first image i've linked below and insert it into my factory...
