Love my Soul, now i've had it a while i kind of miss the built in GPS and screen of my old Renault.  Has anyone else fitted a replacement unit with large screen on it?  was thinking something like this:

If it,s a U.S model the am frequencies won't line up with most uk stations as Europe tunes in 9kz steps and the U.S. in 10kz steps. The tv is analogue so that's obsolete. Then you will have to buy the tomtom or equivalent software on cd or dvd and hope the operating system is compatible with it. What region does the dvd use if it's region 1 then you have to use U.S. DVD'S, apart from that if it's a double din mount it will fit,  Hope that helps.

Ive just gone though the pain of buying a GPS/Multifunction unit via a "Daily Deal". Its a waste of money...from China.
There are hardly any instructions and the ones' provided are in Pidgin English! The screen has developed a crack (Its still in its box too!) and I cant set up to my computer via the USB cable.
I have had my fingers burned...unless I got some positive feedback from other Soul owners who have bought this unit I would stay well away!
Ive asked for a refund and am still waiting for my reply...

Oh not cool :/  Is there a Kia own version?  One that i can get through the dealer network and get them to fit?

It's a shame as the one i linked looks good :(

I purchased this unit for my old Nissan quashqai, looked the part on the web but when it arrived and was installed I found it was not good at all, the unit was returned a week later. I would avoid personally. Hope this helps

Don't forget its a Renualt sorry Nissan, there are so many about so why would you want to drive one like everybody else. Nice to see that Kia was voted no 1 in the latest Which survey , they need now to build on this and look after the people who have bought one of their cars starting with improving some of the dealers.
