IN dash GPS upgrade problem.

I have a Borrego Ex version with rear DVD entertainment unit. I purchased, a replacement in dash GPS unit with Bluetooth from an online store, which shipped it from China, but now the rear DVD unit does not work (play). It turns on, but it does not play DVDs. The original in dash stereo had a plug that fed the rear DVD unit, and the new unit does not have provisions for this plug. Apperantly it is some sort of control cable to the rear system.

I would like to be able to get the function call out of this cable, so that I can try an enable the rear unit so that it can operate again. Does anyone know, where I can get a wiring diagram?

Oh boy where to begin..........
First of all the chance of this working like it used to is slim.....but I HAVE seen some cars in the past work. Here is a link to all the information you will need:
Kia Global Information System (KGIS)
create and account and you can see all the service manuals etc.

Does your new dash unit have CAN? This is a vehicle network that allows communication between devices. The rear seat controls have a CAN connection to the Factory head unit. Protocols can vary so this why my first statement said it may or may not work.

On a side note......I am thinking about getting one of those Chinese units also. I have the Infinity System now, but my Maps are almost 4 years old now and KIA wants over 200 bucks to update them. I figure for about a 100 bucks more I could getone of those units and be able to do anything I wanted including internet!!!

Good luck!

Side track a little here...(sorry, no help for the wiring, except to offer the same link to the KGIS system that virnoche offered)

I would like to see a picture of that chinese unit installed, and get your impressions of it so far. How was the install? Sound quality? User Interface?

A lot of us on here have thought about getting it, but I think we were afraid to do it, and be stuck with something that didn't work at all.

Thanks,
Butch
