Map Update
 
Good Day Everyone,

loving my 2015 K9 after 1 month - took it is for oil change, the K9 guy said this is a great used car.

my question to the forum: is anyone getting the new map update? i see it is $149 from Kia, not sure if it is worth it - I would get it in a heartbeat if it gave me AppleCarPlay :(

side note - when i was getting oil change - I saw 2 other white K9 also coming in as well, never thought i would see 3 in one location, lol

Thanx

If you recheck the website this week, they have upped the price to $199 for the new version 12 release. I did order one since my car still has the original 2014 mapping.

Doesn't look like there is much difference in version 12 over version 11.5
If you have a really old version might be worth updating

Thanks for that update.

The price on the website was $199 from Monday to Wednesday this week. Now today it went back down to $149. Since I ordered on Monday, they charged me $199. So I called to get the $50 credit back.

Excellent - I hope they gave you the $50 bucks

let us know how the update went and if any major improvements

I ordered the new update for my 2015 k900 on a USB drive on 3/12/2018, the first day it was available to purchase. I ordered the USB for the install, and waited for the email to verify it has shipped. I called the next day to check on my shipment; due to a problem at mnsoft my Monday order was cancelled, they just didn't bother to tell me. I reordered 03/13 with the same two day delivery, it did not ship until the 15th, and I received it on the 19th. I installed it today, and my whole system is locked up. Yes, I followed all of the directions to the letter according to the included manual. DO NOT USE THE NEW UPDATE FROM MNSOFT until they fix it!

Wow. I also just received mine today, but have not installed it yet. ****. Let us know what you find out.

*** Quick question - did you Unpair your phones before starting the install?

jlegener 03-19-2018 09:41 PM

Yes, the blue tooth was turned off, and per the instructions there was no CD in the CD player.

jlegener 03-19-2018 10:13 PM

Mnsoft is closed for the day, they did not call me back or contact me as promised. I love the k900, but all Kia support services for the K900 have been a disappointment. That includes the dealership as well as MNSoft which provides the nav updates, (apparently every three years at best).
