Re: New here, so Hi all

I also got my map update for free as it was done at the same time as a service. This was at GWR Kia in Brentford. However, I recommend skipping the built-in maps if you can and use the Waze app for Android or iOS using the built-in Android Auto or Apple CarPlay feature. Much more up to date maps, be...

Re: Radio glitching

I find mine does that whenever there's a double decker bus or a HGV near me.

I'm tempted by the Kia Stinger

Warning - random ramble ahead :lol: I've had my Niro now for 18 months, and I love it. It's a First Edition spec, with all the bells and whistles - and that has a lot to do with the satisfaction I feel for it. But recently I've been looking at more and more videos of the Kia Stinger GTS on YouTube a...

Re: Lead time/waiting time

You need to first connect the car to a WiFi hotspot - I recommend sharing the Internet connection from a smartphone. Once this is connected, a speed camera option will appear in settings.

Re: Kia e-Niro

I had my update done during servicing and wasn't charged the £25 fee. It might be worth waiting for the service and having it done then.

Re: Hi

The main thing you will likely notice with the Niro is it appears to have no power initially but that's just due to the way the throttle is mapped in default eco mode. You get used to it and it encourages smooth driving. In Sport mode, the Niro has a surprisingly quick step off from the line.

Re: BLUETOOTH VOICE CONTROL / ANDROID AUTO

Regular voice control is disabled once you enable either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Why I don't know, but that's just the way they've set it...

This limitation is mentioned in the user manual somewhere.

Re: Lane Keep Assist

I only use it on the motorways, and I'm glad it's available and easily switchable. It, along with the adaptive cruise control and android auto, swung my choice to buy the Niro instead of a Toyota Prius Excel.
