When the screen splits and shows the upcoming turn on the right side, as you get close to the turn the bottom of the right-side screen looks sort of like green grass and the top looks like stadium seats. This happens at multiple locations whenever I approach the turn. I'm trying to say that it happens at different locations, but always happens at each location. Then the screen changes to the home screen. I talked to the dealer about this and he says he has driven k5's and had the same problem and that Kia knows about it and is working on it. Kia says they don't know about it and are not working on it. Has anyone else had this problem?

Welcome @mike4824
Did Kia say anything else when you contacted them?

I find it odd that they sort of brushed it off. It might also depend on who you spoke to and how their level of experience plays into the service you received.

Asking the dealer to reboot or even reset the infotainment system might help.

I took it to a different dealer today because I found out there was a fix for it and there had been a fix ever since the car was manufactured. What makes it even stranger is that the new dealer showed me a printout of 5 known problems and their fixes that had been known since the car was produced. When I bought the car the dealer fixed two of the problems but ignored the other 3 (one of the three was this problem), The service manager is the one that told me there was not a fix as of today and I should wait a couple months to see if Kia comes out with one.

The original dealer is a big volume dealer with a busy service department so there isn't any excuse for them telling me what they did.

Do you remember what was included on the list of problems with fixes? I think it might be helpful to some experiencing those other issues.

I've got this problem too. The last time I had the car to the dealership, they said there was a Nav update but they hadn't received the USB to reprogram it yet from Kia. I haven't bothered to check back yet.

That seems strange because the second dealer I went to (the one that actually fixed it) said these five updates have been available since my car as built and that was July I think. Just to be clear, these are not updates to the map. Those aren't out yet.
