Hi if anyone has been asking about the Kia Sortage Satnav map updates and postcode update i have had a phone call by Kia HQ UK. They have told me that there will be map updates coming around september on their website. Regarding 7 didgit postcode update they have said that at the moment there is no update programmed. But they are forwarding all complaints to the development team & are hoping they will get the message and sort out a firmware update. One thing you can do is use longatude & latitude which is more accurate than a post code for now. Hope this helps some people.

Cheers for the update but updates are well overdue right now. September? A year after launch! Toyota or Honda would be way beyond that.

The satnav needs mire than just map updates. Postcodes are a joke but no speed cameras??? Cmon this is bog standard. And I had to laugh about the longitude and latitude, do you put that on your assess instead of your postcode?

Hi Steve 69
Bought my sportage from new in September.

Having discovered it only has 4 digit postcodes I contacted Kia head office to complain.

They said this was the first complaint they have had on this subject!!

Having read through all these threads I now know they were fibbing.

Is it worth going back to them for an update - might be worth telling them to read through these threads to get a taste of how many customers are unhappy plus how many customers they are losing out to.

kind regards

Steve
