Question 2014 + is UVO Nav plug-n-play install ready?

We have a standard UVO stereo in our 2014 Kia Soul Plus and I've found a few of the fully featured stereos with NAV available for purchase. If I wanted to replace our standard UVO with Kia's more robust model, is that NAV version basically plug and play ready or does it require tapping wires?

Here's the version I want to buy and install.


I am also open to after-market recommendations but I sort of wanted an easier installation.

Thank you

This swap is practically impossible, it is definitely not plug and play as there harness's missing that have to fabricated, the roof antenna is not compatible, some members have tried and failed to make this swap work. Go aftermarket.

Thank you. A bit disappointing but understandable. Any after-market recommendations?

There are some Chinese units that are reputed to be plug and play but are of hit and miss quality, after sales support is a problem as anything warranty related has to be shipped to China at your expense, as well you are left with a hole in the dash while the thing is repaired. Better to stick with a known quantity. like Kenwood, JVC, Pioneer, ETC. Visit Crutchfield for a list.

So just want to be clear here because I was looking to do the same thing to my soon to arrive 2013. I found a Canadian NAV model on EbayMotors that was reasonably priced (haven't bought it yet) and was just going to pull out the stock AM/FM/CD/SAT radio and swap in the new head unit, but what we're saying here is that it's not possible to do so? It does look like the chassis itself is different (no four way flasher button) so is that the issue? Thanks!

Read my post #2 it explains why this swap is a no go. It has nothing to do with the four way flasher.
