Here's hoping the update is available in Canada soon!

I've called the dealership and they tell me to check back "soon".

It is available for Canadian vehicles, although not for free, I bought the update and my vehicle now has Android Auto and Car Play
Yeah, hoping for the freebie upgrade ;)

I kind of wish we got the myuvo stuff in Canada, some of the features sound pretty useful.

Evilsee, where / how did you get the upgrade for Canada, how much did they charge and what version of the head unit do you have

I have the SX, which has the 8" NAV unit, I believe this is the only head unit that will work for the 2016's. You can order the SD card, yes an SD card, thats how advanced they are, from MapnSoft ( just google them and select the Canadian KIA site, I can't post links yet)

I paid around $350, which isn't cheap, but what can you do.

@evilsee - if you didnt get the upgrade yet you still can. I called Kia Canada in today and they took the last 6 digits of my VIN and indicated i would receive instructions in the mail from Kia Canada *in the next 60 days* on how to get the upgrade. i'm assuming this is the head unit software upgrade and is not for the maps or the navigation.

In a separate thread that I wasnt able to find a poster indicated s/he got an upgrade that was paid for and subsequently reimbursed by Kia Canada. I cant recall if that was for maps or for the system software. Will update when i hear from Kia Canada
