Many thanks for letting us know. I hope my car which is only 4 weeks old has the latest software update and the latest maps. I will check tomorrow and see what version I have installed.

Did mine this afternoon.   Don't believe the instructions that say it will only take a couple of minutes.   Once on the memory stick it took about 20 mins. in total after plugging into the car.    Simple procedure except the instruction to leave the engine running,  presumably to stop the unit timing out.  

Can't see any difference in the program so far so presumably just map updates for me.   We shall see.

Hi Keith

I had a look today at my Satnav and checked the software version and the latest version of the maps and they don't relate at all to anything in the links I found by googling kia navigation update. I have found plenty of sites that offer free map updates for Kia cars but I am a little bit wary.

I will have to speak to my dealer next week when I take my car in to have the correct dedicated towing wiring harness installed rather than what they put in.

No downloaded it and put it on a memory stick as per the instructions.  Then just followed the idiot sheet.  Looks to be working fine.

Hope Subaru take a leaf out of Kia’s book, not holding my breath though, I’m certainly not going to stump up the nearly £200 pounds that they want for an update.

Went to my dealers today to have the tow bar electrics replaced and found that the Map Software for the 2017 Sorentos is different to the one advertised as having a free map update for previous versions having the 'Here' mapping.
