Re: Android Auto and wireless charging

It's the next generation of head units, only a very few currently on the market, which allow Android Auto and Apple Carplay to connect wirelessly. Unfortunately no Kia head unit currently has this facility so you are still stuck with a wired connection if you wish to use Andriod auto irrespective of...

Re: Emergency braking feature

I can confirm that the emergency braking does work as I had an issue with a car pulling out from a side road, the driver obviously not seeing me and the car within a split second applied the brake to avoid what could have been a collision. So from my point highly pleased that the detection system wo...

Re: Niro CarPlay

Had no issues on my 6 month of Niro using Apple Car Play, as soon as my iPhone is plug in via a cable a message displays on the screen 'bluetooth disconnected'.

Re: Paint quality - ocean blue metallic

As previosly noted these will not polish out and look like they have been caused by ...

Your phone will then connect to the SatNav unit and give your warnings when approaching speed cameras. This will however use data on your phone so unless you have a good monthly data allowance...

Re: Coasting guide

Same here in my Niro 4. All seems to be set in the driver menu and satnav set up with a route, yet nothing. As with others members on the forum are we all doing something fundamentally wrong.

Re: Niro and snow

Drove my Niro 4 in three inches of snow recently and didn't notive any difference from my other previously owned manual box cars. Like any sensible driver it is about taking it easy on the accelerator pedal and brake pedal to minimise the effect of the snow. On word of caution when it snows heavly t...
