Thumbs down Sat nav upgrade

Hi, I am a new Kia owner having bought a new Sportage 3 SatNav a couple of weeks ago.

Over all I'm very happy but the sat nav is lacking some basic functionality that I find really annoying.

I find it hard to believe that Kia are not planning to upgrade this system for the UK.

I could live with the ridiculous semi post codes issue but a far bigger problem for me is the lack of speed camera alerts. I'm not a speed demon but I live in London where there are hundreds of stupid speed cameras and this is pretty basic functionality that has been around for years.

I have emailed Kia customer services but only got a very unhelpful reply stating 'we have no plans to upgrade this system'.

I can't be the only one complaining about this? Surely?

This is the reason why I didn't wanted the stock satnav installed, felt that my iphone with navigon did a better job.

I'm surprised there are satnav units with speedcameras listed; they don't come on cars here. Maybe you're used to aftermarket units?

There are aftermarket "head" units to replace the satnav/stereo. IIRC they're just Windows CE without the usual OEM limitations. If they accept various map files, you could probably import speedcamera data. There's a sticky in this forum, particularly about the Witson aftermarket unit.
