Apple Carplay in Cadenza

I've been wanting to get Apple carplay in my 2014 cadenza and have been waiting for an update. Kia recently released software updates for Optimas, sportage, etc... but strangely no update for any Cadenza models.

I'm very curious why since it's touted as a more "luxury" option and has similar UVO systems to the cars that did get the carplay update.

I think us Cadenza owners need to united and demand this update! Any suggestions??

dont hold your breath on Apple Car Play and Android Auto for the 14-16 models.... the update still requires UVO3 and these units aren't equipped with that system... the only 2 units on the ground right now that have it are the new 17 Sportage with Convenience Package and Sorento LX with same package.

I should be getting in the 17 Cadenza and 17 Soul at the end of December.

But it was my understanding that the cadenza '14 is on Uvo version 3. You mean to tell me that the '14 Soul has a more advanced system than the '14 cadenza?

I honestly don't care about it. I like my Uvo, the less they mess with it the better to me. I would like updated maps, but that's it.

There will be no updates for prev Cadenza. Unfortunately KIA did not upgrade head unit for even 2016 model, like HYUNDAI did with last Azera. KIA actually does not care about "luxury" cars they made because they sell Optima and other cars 10x times more.

I don't understand. If the UVO 3 is IN the 14-16 cadenza then it TOO should get android auto. So what gives? @Beezwax, you're the closest any of us have to an actual Kia HQ rep. Can they explain why they won't give it to us. Even if we pay for the software udpate? For F***'s sake the 2014 Soul gets it... WTF?
