UVO American Update in a Canadian Car?

Hey all,

Just picked up a 2017 Sportage EX with Android Auto but not CarPlay. It is supposed to be in the next round of (hopefully free) updates. The American update has both Android Auto AND CarPlay fully functioning. Has anyone applied the American update to a Canadian Car? Twitter/Kia Canada tells me they are vastly different, but I suspect the hardware is identical and can actually handle both updates. Any input is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Neil

It isn't possible. The update checks for installed software version and country ID and if not the same as the update it won't install.

Same here. I picked up my SX the first week of January and had both Android Auto & Apple Carplay.
