RE: New Navigation Unit Installed in 2011 Kia Sorento
Fitment and wiring is perfect and a breeze to fit, once you pull the dash apart.
The sound is good as well, better than the standard KIA unit.
That is where the good news ends.
1) The display is useless in Daylight/Sunlight, being totally unreadable.
2) The touch screen is very difficult to use, unless you have tiny fingers, requiring mutiple pushes before it registers.
3) The steering wheel controls, other than the volume controls, are useless. The mode button is useless and serves no purpose other than to move to the next source. You then have to push the highlighted source on the touch screen to actually select it.
In the radio mode the up and down buttons are also useless, in that instead of moving to the next pre-programmed station, or the next band, it seeks up or down.
4) The IGO GPS software included with the unit is illegal, and after talking to IGO, there is no way to legalise it, or get any map updates.
