Have your friend call Kia customer service, not the dealer but Kia corporate. I complained that as a 2nd owner who bought just after the cutoff date that it was unfair that I had to pay for the update. They sent me a free update as a one time courtesy.Ah. And the file that you posted is gone as well (or otherwise was not working for folks, maybe VIN issues)?
*I* updated my 2015 a long time ago: a friend just bought a new 2016 (yes--brand new, on lot a LONG time) an is ticked off that *I*have carplay and he can't seem to get it.
Oh, and thanks for your efforts and response!
