Kia Map Update Free Us

 

Navigation Updates

The offical Kia maps are now a free download or a $25 USD purchase plus shipping from https://www.mapnsoft.com/kia/.
It is great to see a reasonable change to their prices.
I wonder what made them change their mind on pricing.
EDIT: The price of purchasing the SD card do NOT include the cost of shipping.
My mistake, I didn't try going through the checkout process.

EDIT_2: I contacted mapnsoft in May about there being no download option and they had a delay and the download function was pushed till July.

  • below is the email I received:.
