Kia Canada Announces Free Upgrades To Android Auto & Apple CarPlay….. With A Catch

If you own a Kia vehicle that was made between 2015 and 2017, you might be eligible for an upgrade to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Assuming that the infotainment system inside your Kia is compatible of course. All you have to do is go to this website and have your VIN number handy. That will allow their system to confirm that you are eligible for the upgrade. Instructions on how to perform the upgrade can be found here if you have a car with a navigation system or here if you don’t.

There is a catch though. There’s this text on the Kia Canada website:

Please note that this software update is currently at beta-testing phase. If you experience any difficulties, please contact us.

While I am sure that some won’t be bothered by that, others might be put off. If the latter is you, then paying for the update via MnSoft would be your route to get all the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay goodness you’re looking for. Or you could just wait for the “beta” to end. Either way, Kia Canada owners now have options when it comes to getting cutting edge infotainment into their vehicles.
