    I'm considering purchasing a 2015 Optima SX that has what appears to be the base radio. I'd really like to have Android Auto in the car. I understand there was an update for the 2015 Optima that adds Android Auto. But I don't think that is for this base radio, right? It's for the nav-radio unit...
  7. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    I'm on the fence about a speaker upgrade. I'm not sure if I should just add a sub woofer in the back or replace the door panel speakers. I've had an audio installer guy say that the stock speakers on a 2018 optima LX are better than average and only need a DSP for an improvement. Anyone that has...

  12. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So, after reading 3 threads I found a set of tails (pieced together) for 278.00, i bought 2 outer hybrid tails from a 13 hybrid ex, and the inner set for an sx new. From what i read the hybrid tails will work as a better lx upgrade, so Im wanting some clarification so I feel confident in my...

    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
