Hi there I’m Peter, I have recently purchased a secondhand Kia Venga June 2018 model. Looking through the forum I noticed that the Sat Nav requires updates. I wasn’t aware as I’ve had a separate Sat Nav all the time. Question : how do you get an update? And which is the latest one for the Vena, and the cost please.
So far I’m very happy with my new purchase, and looking forward to many happy trouble free motoring, and of course updates on the forum.
Thanking you.

The sat nav and media update seems to vary in cost.
basically the update is free, but you pay for the time it takes, anything from £25-£70 seems the going rate with most paying around £40.
this is done by the dealer, steer clear of buying an update off eBay that could knacker the system!
As for the update version, this will depend on the model of the stereo, as certain versions can have upgraded/different units

The information for the map updates is listed on the first post on this Kia Customer Services thread. The thread is for the 2020 updates, however Kia Customer Services announced the release of the 2021 updates (see below). The 4th Gen issue has been resolved.
Normally map updates are released in the 2nd quarter of each year (Apr to Jun). I am not going to comment on the £40 charge.
Hi all

2021 map updates are now ready for all platforms EXCEPT THE 4TH GENERATION. If your 2020 versions are those circled below, the 2021 versions for your platform are undergoing further testing. Thanks for your patience.
If you're unsure which platform your car has, please PM us with the reg.

pretty sure map version 12 is 2020, and 13 is the new 2021 version.
as yours is 10 that fits in with 2018.
software versions seem to back this up too.
