Question EX and Android?

I bought a 2017 Sportage EX with the 5" display screen a few weeks ago.

I notice there are several different Kia related apps in the Google Play store. Their functions are not clearly described.

Are any of these applicable to my car? Just in case I'm missing something I thought I'd ask here.

Also, while the Bluetooth interface to my phone works well when, say, I'm listening to a podcast thru the phone...if I'm listening to the car's FM radio I cannot hear the phone's GPS voice lady give me directions. Is there a way around this?

Unfortunately no. The radio can only play from 1 source at a time. The best option is to change the app settings to use the phone speaker and not bluetooth. The rest of the phone will use bluetooth but the app will use the phone speaker, if the app you use has that option.
