      So, I purchased a T'Eyes SPro 4GB ram, 64GB rom from AliExpress at US $210.6 61% OFF|TEYES SPRO Car Radio Multimedia Video Player Navigation GPS Android 8.1 For KIA Sorento 2 XM Sedan DVD 2009 2010 2011 2012|Car Multimedia Player| - AliExpress

      I've connected it to the Sorento successfully with Axxess Integrate AX-HYKIA4-SWC Factory Integration Adapter Connect a new car stereo and retain steering wheel controls and factory amp in select 2010-13 Hyundai and Kia vehicles at Crutchfield I've only tested it without soldering anything to make sure it worked. It works fine.

      I had tried connecting the head unit to my Sorento with a Canbus module that was provided by the SPro vendor. This did not work as no sound was produced. I'm not sure if the module is defective or just doesn't work with the North American Sorento XM. I also tried to use the SPDIF output from the radio directly to the amplifier connector. This did not work. I decided to go with

      Posts to follow with other information about the hardware (head unit, adapter, wires, connectors, etc), installation and software configuration.

      You should make sure it will do what you want it to do and will work with the specific Sorento / radio. The page on the link you provided describes it as a SWC which interfaces with the steering wheel controls and doesn't mention an amplifier.

      I'm trying to do the same thing for my Canadian 2012 model SX that has navigation and under-seat amplifier. The module I'm looking at is the Axxess Integrate AX-HYKIA4-SWC Factory Integration Adapter Connect a new car stereo and retain steering wheel controls and factory amp in select 2010-13 Hyundai and Kia vehicles at Crutchfield which clearly talks about amplifier, SWC and rear camera retention. I'm pretty sure this isn't usable for your model, though.

      Best bet is to try to get a hold of any manual to read the details.
