I will be quick here, but i have a very detailed review that i will post a link to (something i could not find ANYWHERE) I have not gotten this to work YET, I received a defective screen unit and am getting it replaced by sonicelectornix which I am very happy with. HOWEVER, the instructions are extremely vague, and you have to do a fair amount of work for something that is supposed to be a "Factory Upgrade" you have to splice into the factory units power, ground, and accessory wires which is NOT very well explained, and something I did NOT have to expect to do for a unit like this. You also have to (almost) completely take apart the factory unit and reassemble with supplied parts which, if you are not careful, can ruin your ribbon cable which is VITAL to the system working. In my other post, I posted pictures of the instructions and will include updates as to how the system works when I get a good screen in. You can take a look at it here. (I wish i had something like this before I bought and attempted to install this unit)

this is a head unit that retains the factory stereo and cd player. all steering functions including phone work perfectly.

the gps is slower to react than my garmin but perfectly functional and maps appear to be pretty current.

the instruction say to but a wire and wire in the steering control adapter. in testing my unit for proper power connection i found this is not needed. the unit work perfectly with only the power leads wired in.

i did notice something Odd with the BT system. the unit seems to end up with 2 BT recievers, one for ingenix and the original factory radio. connecting to the "ingenix" i recieved a steady "drop" of audio like a pulse. disconnecting and only connecting to "kia" the problem went away.

ALL stock radio features are retained including sirius radio. this isn't so much a replacement radio as it is an upgrade to the factory unit. for the price i am extremely happy.
