See stage 2 and 3 just isn't happening for me.


I've paired my phone okay, although I've read there is a button on the ipod when the 'now playing' is on, I'll try that when I'm back in the car.

Looks like I'm going back to the dealer with this, just not happening.

Someone mentioned an 'up arrow' on the iphone to switch the streaming on but I can't find it so ifanyone can post a picture of this on their iphone I'd appreciate it.

If you hold down the settings button it tells you your firmware, I'm version 1.3.8 SL and my software version is 5.0.1

Can anyone else tell me theirs pls?

Okay, apparently (according to Apple) you cannot stream music from an iphone to the Sportage head unit using bluetooth.

It seems that Ray has managed it in his KIA Soul as seen from the photos.

What I am missing is the button to the right that looks like an up arrow - called the Airplay button.

Apple says it can only be used for Apple devices but as you can see, it picks up other devices.

So if anyone knows how I get that function please let me know. I have the latest IOS version 4.3.1 .

I'm even more stumped now.

Nope but thanks. I think the only way that icon shows is if u Are using an AirPlay enabled device like apple tv. I don't have one, or a mac.

How someone has managed to get it to show the car is a miracle 

Craig, thanks a MILLION for that.

The issue is obviously with the Sat NAv head unit, looks to be fine on the non SN version, I'm just not getting that icon to appear.

I hope somehow the future updates (whenever they appear) resolve this, please KIA make this happen.

Again, thanks mate.
