Map Update v9 - Coming June 1st

Not sure if it will be ready for the 2014/15 Sorento on that day but they have a banner now:
MnSoft | KIA Map Update (US) for v9 and v8.5 is $50 off until that date.

I had wanted to go to the v8.5 but held back. Hopefully they will post some good v9 enhancment details so it can truly make the upgrade worth the purchase for those of us that have yet to pay up for newer data/features.

I will be upgrading to V9 as soon as it is available. I can't stand the change in V8 that causes it to speak the notice about the contacts downloading. It never does it on a cold start, but almost every other time it spends at least 10 seconds telling me that "some phones require additional steps to confirm the download...bla, bla, bla." But if you turn down the voice volume, to shut her up, you won't hear ANY voice for nav or anything else.

Sorry for the rant, didn't mean to hijack your thread. I will provide some feedback on the new version, once I get it.

I have the currently newest version (got it last winter), but no voice tells me anything about a required confirmation.

I didn't know that US customers should charge to get map upgrade. it's about $100? holly. I live in Korea. here is also map upgrade 4 times (seasonally) for year. it's all free here. all you have to do is that you just go to website & download to USB thumb drive or SD card. anyway, new update will be arriving in June 1st? I assume that Korean version will be the same date?

We shouldn't get charged ... but we do. I emailed them requesting any enahncement details but no reply (yet). Will post if I get it and I am unsure of the global rollout and if all model years will be ready for purchase on the 1st, we may just have to wait a to see.

Can someone post release notes about what's coming in version 9?

* Personally, I really liked version 8.5 updates. It was much more usable.

Did you upgrade from version 8 or a previous version? I'm still on 8, so I'm curious as to how much it changed between 8 and 8.5.

I upgraded from 8. The biggest things are 1-screen to enter an address, mute button right on map and the agree button thing goes off after 10 seconds. I was happy.

Umm...if that post you linked is your only upgrade, you have version 8. Version 8.5 only came out a few months ago. Have you upgraded a 2nd time since November?
