Default 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.

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?

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

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).
