Re: Front-facing camera

Assuming: 1) the camera works in the visible spectrum 2) is of sufficient resolution, and 3) that there is some form of data capture system then maybe some electronics whizzkid somewhere might be able to rig something up for you. Assumption 1) might be correct, I'd be amazed if 2) and 3) were. There...

Re: Driver information screen

There are three options: OFF - You may set to default man- ually by using the trip switch reset button. • After ignition - The vehicle will automatically set to default once 4 hours pass after the ignition switch or ENGINE START/STOP button is turned to the OFF position. • After refueling - After re...

Re: Mpg

Very difficult to say as you give zero information about what type of driver you are. I'm a leisurely driver making rare motorway journeys, usually urban driving of sufficient distance to ensure the engine fully heats up, don't use Sport mode etc. My figures are a tad better than yours. Post a photo...

Re: Updating maps

I don’t know if you've tried to use the webpage for which I provided a link, but it leads on to https://update.kia.com/EU/E1/updateNoticeView/624. Look at Notifications, read the latest May22 which seems to indicate that a maps update is available for most Niros.

Re: Updating maps

Go to https://www.kia.com/uk/owners/navigatio ... re-update/ and follow the instructions. It's a complex process involving a PC and high capacity USB memory stick. I've not tried it myself yet, insofar as my car is recent and was updated when new. Good luck, let us all know how you get on.

Re: MIL & Camshaft Position Sensor

I haven't experienced it, I don’t know if its simple to fix, but it's almost certainly covered by warranty. All the dealer needs to be told is that there is a malfunction light, and then book it in for repair. If it's not covered by warranty they should tell you why not. No way should they be demand...

Re: Charging with Zappi & solar panels

Check out eco and eco+ settings. I think you have yours set on eco+, but eco may be better as it doesn't pause. Read all this on Zappi website.

Re: Paint coming off roof (only 1 year old)

Presumably you are talking about a Kia dealer (garage) and the paintwork warranty (insurance).
You need to get an independent diagnosis from a vehicle paintshop. Or, take a photo and send it to the local press to kick up a stink.

Re: Green wheel on dashboard display?

I guess you have an e-Niro. The wheel you see is either related to Lane Following Assist that is actuated when you set Smart Cruise Control OR it's the symbol on page 5-72. Good luck.
