    After installation, it is not possible to revert to the previous software version

  • Certain new features, such as Connected Routing and Weather Data, require an active Kia Connected Services subscription to access

  • Please only use the official NaU (Navigation Updater) software found on this website to download your Audio system/Map update.
    Downloading or copying software or updates from other sources can lead to update failures and cause critical issues with the Audio system

  • If you experience any issues while using the NaU software, or before or after installation, please contact Kia Customer Care

  • If your Audio system has a SD card, you need to use an SD card to update the software and Map. 
    The SD card slot may be located in several different places: just below, above, or behind the Audio system display screen
    • If your vehicle has a 16 GB SD card, please use a high-grade 32 GB SD card to perform this update
       ~ Please do not use micro SD card ~
    • If your vehicle has a 32 GB SD card, please use it to perform the update
    • Please do not use the SD card to save music or other data files

  • If your Audio system does not have a SD card, you need to use a USB flash drive to update the software and Map
    • Please format the USB flash drive in ExFAT before using the NaU software

  • When selecting your vehicle, make sure the model/model year are correct before starting the download process.
    • If the wrong model/model year is chosen, the update cannot be performed

  • Please ensure that you select the correct drive on your PC if you have multiple portable storage devices connected
    • Disconnect the portable storage device (SD card or USB flash drive) only after confirming the download process is complete

  • Disconnecting the portable storage device during the download process can lead to corrupt files and a Map update failure

  • Warning:
    1. During vehicle software installation, the vehicle must be running to keep the battery charged. Do not change to ACC mode, turn off the START button/ignition switch, or disconnect the SD card/USB flash drive during the upgrade procedure
    2. Here is how to double-check if your vehicle is running
      • The START button "ON" indicator should be lit, or if you have an ignition switch, it should be in the “ON” position

      • A software update could affect the functionality of aftermarket components  (e.g. aftermarket rear view camera, speakers, etc.)
