The issue is probably buried in technology.

For wireless car play the Nav unit has to support higher capacity 5GHz WiFi. You will probably find that 8 inch screen only supports 2.4 GHz.

Are you both using individual phones in your cars? Try changing the phones over and see what happens. It may be down to different settings in the two phones.

In the Nav settings can you select 5 GHz WiFi, is so select it and then, if it does not work check your phone and enable 5GHz WiFi on that.

What year car's are they?
Advice to check your phone in wife's car is good. As that would rule out a issue with your phone. She could also try hers in yours.

GT-S has UVO, but both should be 8" screens.
But seems strange that GT-line has wireless Car Play given it does not have wireless charging.

Ok, eventually capitulated and called KIA and in their wisdom as the Gt line does not have standard satnav they bestow it with wireless connect Apple Car Play but you may well want to connect your phone with a wire to charge it, ok that just about works. On the Gt line "S" as it has standard satnav (not a patch on google maps) and a phone charging pad then you need to connect with a wire to use Car Play, Brilliant.
