I see that your choice of maps colours are Milk, Cafe, Latte and Mocha - the same as my KIA Niro.

It is a diabolic step backwards from the 2019 maps which I, and many KIA owners, have complained to KIA customer services about.

The colours are muddy and side roads indistinct.  You need a magnifying glass to read road names and the feint and narrow orange or red line at the side of the road to show traffic is hardly visible even at maximum magnification.

My 2019 maps were crisp, well defined with lots of contrast and road names much more visible. Also traffic was shown with wide orange or red chevrons on the affected roads which were easy to see at all magnifications. It was possible to zoom out and easily see traffic conditions over a wide area. It's now impossible.

I have an SD card prepared for the trial - I'll see how it goes this weekend. Hopefully, the OEM card can be used to regress should I need it to.

Thanks very useful - my local dealer couldnt be bothered to do an update at service (to be fair it does take a long time).
I have the version that uses maps from android auto - but this looks like it will update the firmware in the head unit.

I've got a downloaded update on USB for Mrs G's PD, but she's never making the time to make it happen. I don't think she cares.

Finally got around to updating my system. Went well, taking only 10 mins to complete.

Not tested the nav or maps yet, so I'm wary of the issues raised above by Alan.

No matter - I do like the way I can now preset the map zoom levels depending on the speed I'm travelling. Also, the visuals on the infotainment are superior. Nice little touch, too, adding a "Sounds Of Nature" option as a mode button setting :lol:

Can't see the point of the Elephant fart though. Perhaps it's to combat road noise.

^ :lol: good one.

Seems overall a much slicker system now. The street names are indeed slightly smaller than before, but not so much so that I can't read them.

I got bored with the Sounds Of Nature after about 1 minute, but having the GPS speed showing [as an option] is quite cool.

I used an old class 4 SD card for my upgrade but have now reused the original class 10 card, as the nav system took a few seconds too long to boot from cold.

Overall, very happy.
