Has anyone been able to get their hands on a genuine sat nav for a 2011+ model and install in their Sorento? I am not keen in getting a dodgy Chinese clone that runs WinCE. wonder why KIA is not trying to make a mozzarella on selling OEM units?

I bought one on ebay and sold it the same place. Way too much work to install, it requires additional wires that aren't present in the non-nav unit vehicle, and requires the OEM amp as it uses canbus controls for volume and some other things. I ended up putting in a pioneer x930Bt and love it. I did try one of those cheap chinese direct fit units first, that never even made it into the vehicle the quality and software was so bad.
