The maps are on an SD card, simple as swapping old for new.
Not sure if the £25 charge is for a new SD card or the dealer charge to fit them (one minute job) You can buy the SD cards on bay of e but are around £50.

Re: Connected services with BT Wifi and no smartphone

Which is fine if you are stopped with range of a hotspot, but as driving by the time you have connected to a new hotspot you have driven out of and need to connect to another. I had to turn it off on my phone, as it used to just keep trying to connect to the next new hotspot and never actually conne...

More worrying is that when checked the other doors the driver door was also locked also locked but rear doors were unlocked, so if I had left keys in ignition then I w...

Re: SATNAV speed camera warning

If the phone can connect to the Internet and download Android auto then it would be a smartphone. You don't need to spend a fortune you can get perfectly good one for less than £100.

Remember it's not Kia it's dealership mechanic who's ticking boxes.
