Im afraid to say thats the way it is :( most of our company blackberrys are defaulted to this also. Search via surname first.

But like you i have my personal iphone set to Firstname then Surname.

Its a pain but you get used to it.

its because the whole sat nav/phone system is 5h1te. I cant believe they can get away with marketing a system so poor that it will not accept a postcode and likewise will not pair and exchange phoebook details with many modern mobiles.

Up date done here is the details of what's gone in
Bluetooth. 2.6.8
Firmware 1.4.1
System software 5.1.3
Map 309e7a2

So far it seems faster moving about settings
Bluetooth audio now streaming from iphone 4
( I had to uninstall switch off both phone and head unit then re connect Bluetooth )
That's as far as iv got need to do some work now
You can get the files from rapidshare 16 in all if I remember 2.5 gig aprox once you have them all unzip with winrar you should end up with a file called KIA open this and transfer the contents to the root of a memory stick ( one that's big enough to take it ) hen turn car and radio on then simply plug in to USB socket and follow the on screen instructions
Pics of piss
It took about an hr to install the update so keep the engine running

Nice one CraigW

I have a feeling my system has this already installed. Will check at lunch. My car is only a week old. Label under the bonnet states 23/08/2011.

But then i guess that doesnt mean the satnav unit hasnt been sat on a parts shelf for god knows how long lol.

Have to say though i have had no issues streaming music via bluetooth.


Wonder if there is a way to backup the existing firmware before flashing?

Hey Craig,

Can confim my car already has that loaded.

But it would appear i have a newer map database

Software Version = 5.1.3
BT Version = 2.6.8
Navigation version = 2011.05.25
Map database version = 310E7A2
Firmware Version = 1.4.1_SL

Anyone know of a way to back this up? I could then upload it for the rest of you guys.

You just need to fire up the sat nav, then hold down the settings key. Looks like a cog and should be one of the physical buttons on the r/h side of the unit.

Youmwill the be presented with a black screen with white text detailing the above.

Your dealer should be able to carry out this update for you, if you push them hard enough!

I had mine done at Belmont, Selkirk on Friday and so far (touch wood!) it has solved the whole freezing issue I had. Facebook contacts aren't showing up any more but at least I can connect my phone without the system crashing all the time!

Strangely though, even although it's an official Kia update carried out at the dealer, the Map Database Version is as Craig W's (309E7A2) which even though it's newer than the original isn't as new as Datamonkey's!
