Re: Spoeed Camera Warning

Speed camera and speed limit information is provided by Tom Tom to the Kia satnav. It will show fixed cameras and speed limits known at the time of the current software on the SD card mounted in the dashboard. This is updated by Live updates when you connect the satnav to a WiFi hotspot on your mobi...

Re: Dash cam 2019 nero 4 hybrid

Not had a problem, Halfords fitted a Nextbase dashcam with all the wiring concealed. It starts up when I put the ignition on, and turns off ditto off. All trouble free and no interference.

Re: Niro sub woofer control

My first reaction to this post is that someone is taking the p. But, in the spirit of friendly advice and cooperation that should be a feature of this forum I will try to help. My 2017 Niro has the top of the range JBL sound system and it definitely doesn’t have anything under the driver seat, nor t...

Re: SD card music?

The SD card slot is used by the satnav. Transfer your music to a USB flash drive and insert it in one of the USB sockets below the dash. Then select MEDIA, you should see your music.

Re: Niro 4 reversing camera

Presumably it's so badly cracked as to be useless. You might get a complete camera unit from a breaker, but it must be difficult to fit, how could you calibrate the blue/yellow guide lines etc.

Re: Under seat storage

Well, there's no room under the back seat because that's where the main battery is. I imagine you could put suitable sized (but small) boxes under the front seats, but they might interfere with seat to and fro and height adjustment, as well as rear passengers' feet. I believe some people have done i...

Re: Kia Niro Boot Space

It's not as simple as that, where the front seat back is located will depend on the driver, and even if you had that dimension, the tailgate slopes so your wheelchair may foul the glass, particularly if it won't fit between the wheel arch intrusions. You'd really be better trying to put your chair i...

Re: Boot space measurements please with rear seats folded

When I broke my ankle I hired a wheelchair, easily fitted in the boot with seat backs folded down and wheelchair collapsed.

Re: Niro second service advisories

Standard cash-leverage practice. Your experience should tell you something about the dealer. I don't see that advisories of the nature you describe would have any impact on warranty.
