Hi all,

We have deleted the link for the download.

I'd like to remind members that any unofficial updates you do could invalidate your warranty and cost you hundreds of pounds at a Kia dealer to reset your system.

If you wish to 'take a chance', (on a Russian site that offers no guarantee),  thats entirely up to you of course, but your Moderation team think that if these links are posted here, some members may feel we are endorsing them which we certainly aren't.


Thanks all,

Paul

Just been interrogating the Update software and noticed there’s a clock function std::chrono::system_clock::20180401:0001 which almost looks like a self destruct function that will load a infinite loop on Apr 1st this year, it also runs a Russian message that doesn’t translate very well, but is something like “present truth not capitalist lies” I hope this doesn’t interfere with the running of the Sat Nav

Someone with a degree and background in Computer Science I'd like to know what program or utility you are using to 'interrogate' the software. From my understanding the software files from the links are KIA stock files and have in no way been tampered with.

Whilst I think it's unlikely, how would you know if they had been tampered with or not?
