Might just need enabling in the setting on the infotainment unit. Which year have you got?Just got a Sportage Crdi 2 on Friday and noticed the sat nav doesn't seem to alert you to speed cameras or tell you your speed is that correct? and if so are you better using Google maps through Apple/android play?
Welcome to the forum, 'ShrimpyPhil'.the sat nav doesn't seem to alert you to speed cameras or tell you your speed is that correct?
It was the same on my 2017 Sportage and my current 2020 Sportage, just need to tether the car to my phone mobile hot spot. I get camera alerts, live traffic reports, fuel prices etc., from TomTom Live Services.On my 2018 Sportage I don't connect via USB but by using my phone as a mobile hotspot as explained in the video I referenced above.
No, it still plays music via Bluetooth. I haven't watched the video (poor reception area), but if it is referring to a 'hotspot starter' then no there isn't. I believe Apple's software/protection rules do not allow an app to function in that manner.Very interesting video,just wondering if you tether via the phone Wi-fi hot spot instead of USB do you get the full album display or like the blue tooth plain display And is there an app for IOS as the video only mentions android….thanks
Will not need USB for Speed Camera display just a WiFI hotspot connection to the Internet too connect to Kia/TomTom services.Yes yoy need your phone connected by cable into the usb socket and hotspot turned on on your phone for the speed camera alerts to work.
Sorry about that just noticed I had mentioned using a usb cable. No need as you can connect wirelessly using hotspot connection on your iphone or android phone to get speed camera alert. USB cable only needed if you need to connect to Apple Car play or Androiod Auto though some of the new head units coming to new cars will now be equipped to connect wirelesslyYes yoy need your phone connected by cable into the usb socket and hotspot turned on on your phone for the speed camera alerts to work.
Is that app for iPhone or just Android?Will not need USB for Speed Camera display just a WiFI hotspot connection to the Internet too connect to Kia/TomTom services.
I have an automation APP on my phone that sets up the HotSpot and connects the car when my phone sees the cars BT signal. Phone never leaves my pocket. USB cable is required for AA/iPhone mapping APPs should you want to use them.
On old software there was no on screen display of vehicle speed but that was included in last years software update where the vehicle speed is now displayed in upper left above the repositioned Road Speed limit. Average speed camera sections are now indicated as well as 'Pings' for exceeding the speed in those sections.
Only Android, MacroDroid. I think the Apple gardening controls prohibiting APPs controlling the WiFi/HotSpot settings in iOS. There was once a Kia APP that also did Auto connection but again I don't know if it's available in Apple flavourIs that app for iPhone or just Android?
