I have installed aftermarket Smarty Trend head unit in my Kia Sportage. It is working on Android system and I think it is the better system for a car nowadays. I think it will be easier and better for your car, than the old one sound/navigation system reanimation.

Hey mate, I'm in Sydney. Andy I have done the aftermarket install on my 2016 Platinum.
There's a few things that have to be used to have the climate control display through the head unit. You have to install an amp too if you want to keep the factory sub, but all doable. Even kept the factory reverse camera.
I have a kenwood dnx9180dabs, poops all over the factory head unit. Would never look back, we love it.

What is better about the new unit as opposed to the old one? I can't remember if you had the top of the line Hardon Kardon system or not or was it a lower grade?
Hope I'm not hijacking the thread by asking but I do think this helps the OP anyway.
Also to the OP, I too got told I would not be able to redeem any of my promised map updates via my dealer. Got told KIA head office had renegged on that deal due to costs associated. So I rang KIA head office here in Sydney and blasted them. In the end they relented and gave my one update which I have just had done. Not sure how long you have your car for but in my experience using the KIA nav as opposed to Google maps, Google is way superior. I use the KIA nav when I have a basic suburban address. Any further than that then I use Google as it is way better. Recently I drove to Adelaide from Sydney and KIA nav route was around 120km further than Googles was. My mate used his Google map, I used my KIA as a comparison. Suffice to say he arrived over an hour earlier than I did
Hey mate, yeah been going good aye. I'll put up some photos in a little bit.
What I found was aerpro and their adapters work, but not how their instructions say. But got it sorted.
What I love by having the aftermarket head unit is that I have android auto and Apple carplay. Dvd player, google maps of course and the ability to actually tune the stereo so it sounds good.
I have the harman kardon one, so I had to replace the factory amp, but it's pretty easy to do.
My head unit is the kenwood dnx9180dabs, it has a navigation system in it too, so we can use both. The steering wheel controls work as before.
You do lose the nav and stereo information from the dash screen on the cluster, but that's hardly missed by getting all the other goodies.

And I used the kenwood xr900-5 amp, it fits pretty nicely under the seat.
I am replacing it with the jl audio hd900/5 amp at some point, but I had the kenwood from my last car and it fit on the factory amp mount, where the jl didn't. Will need to make a different amp rack for the bigger amp.

Hi Pakman

I am also looking at the infodapter from Aerpro for the interface between the steering wheel control and the aftermarket stereo.
A few questions:
1. Does your car have the ISG? If so will the climate control show up when the climate control deactivates/activates the fan?
2. Are you able to show parking sensor and the rear camera on the same screen?
3. Are you able to activate voice activation from the steering wheel button?

Firstly, what's the ISG? It does show up the climate control display through the head unit. Not great, but it works, what I mean by not great is that unlike the standard stereo that just shows the climate control display on the top quarter of the screen, the infodapter uses the whole display to display the details. Then is displayed for 3-5 seconds then back to the normal home screen.
The rear camera works with another wire harness from Aerpro. Apvki03 I think it is, doesn't show up rear sensors on the screen, but mine still beeps on the dash. So I could say I have retained that pretty well.
As for the voice recognition, I have the pre facelift model that doesn't have that button on the steering wheel, as that button is the mute button on mine. It my be possible to get it hooked up, but the settings are in the infodapter as to what that button press does.
If you have any other questions, just ask, I'll try to do my best.

Idle Stop and Go (ISG) function automatically switches off the engine when the car is at a standstill and starts it again as soon as the brake pedal is released.

Reason why I was asking is that when this happens, the fan automatically cuts off. Was wondering if it will also trigger the climate control display when it happens.

You also mentioned Aerpro's instructions differ? How so?
