Hello KIA CSI have a question.
Is there a software/firmware upgrade planned for the Bluetooth for KIA ?
Currently when I try and make a call 'By Name' I have to remember to quote the name in reverse.....
i.e. 'Call Bloggs Fred on Mobile' instead of how the number is presented in my iPhone 4S (Fred Bloggs).
Before my Sportage I had a Fiat Bravo which was 5 years old and had no problems with this setup (Blue and Me), so if Fiat can get it right 5 years ago, surely with Technology moving on as it has in the past 5 years, KIA should be able to get it right by now.
Apart from this little niggle I am very pleased with my new purchase, but this is really spoiling things for me at the moment as I spend so long in my car, and have to make calls all the time.
Please advise.

Hi scuba0576<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" />



Sorry for the delay in our reply. We are aware of a
compatibility issue between iPhone and our media unit, at the moment your
contacts will only appear reversed as you've said above.



We're always looking to
improve things and although there are no software upgrades at the moment that
will resolve this, it's defiantly worth keeping in touch with your dealer ""“ they
can periodically check if an update's available for you.



Thank you once again for your
post.

I thought I was going mad.
Ended up losing my temper and swearing at mine, until I figured out why it would recognise my commands.

Nice to see that I'm not alone.

I would assume that this is an iphone problem though, as there's a setting on the iphone to reverse the display name around.

One would assume that the iphone "phone book" is last name first, hence the reason the car is picking this up.
