There is a separate thread here discussing the upgrade process for the radio to get to version 1.01 of the radio firmware. Part of the the firmware upgrade process involves pressing buttons in a certain sequence to open up the radio to "engineering mode" or "programming mode." Once in this mode there are more options besides just upgrading the radio's firmware via USB drive. Here's what I've mapped out so far:
Disclaimer: This *could* hose your radio, so proceed at your own risk. You will most likely lose all your presets if you proceed, but I think you'd have to work hard to do much worse than that...
(with the radio powered off, press and hold 1 then quickly press and hold 5 and keep both held down for five seconds. Simultaneously release both buttons. Then press the "1" button four times. This will display a menu showing the current firmware version, and also display an (F) - this means you're in engineering mode).
If you press the 1 button after the above procedure, you have a menu of three choices:
4 Micom (firmrware upgrade of the radio)
5 DSP (??)
If you press the 2 button after the above procedure, it will look to do the firmware upgrade off the CD ROM. Boring - let's keep moving
Button 3 gets interesting:
1) GUI On/off (I tried this and couldn't figure out what GUI was toggling!)
2) NOR -> EEP
3) EEP -> NOR
4) SIRUS DM Mode (!! - Is this what I think it is??)
1) Radio Level Mode On/Off (volume automatically louder as you increase speed)
1) RF Test Mode
2) BT Firmware Update
3) BT Delete all Pairing
4) BT test something (can't read my own scribble!)
Select Area (mine set to USA_BT - Use the tuner knob to see the myriad of choices)
Plenty of interesting stuff to play with! Any ideas what "NOR -> EEP" means? And for those who have had their Sirius subscriptions expire and don't mind losing all your presets, some playing around with button 3 option 4 might be...shall we say "fruitful" ??
Oh, and word of warning about the BT (bluetooth) test mode - there is one test under that menu that causes some wicky loud feedback if you have your speakers turned up!

der00 did you know you have the wrong radio version on your radio. There was a TSB to address a Sirius issue that upgraded the firmware from 1.00 to 1.01.
Here is the whole TSB
Every time I'm at the dealership for service they try to upgrade me from 1.00 to 1.01 with no luck. I'm looking to just skip the 1.01 upgrade and go right into 1.03. On my wife 2011 Soul when you hit the CD/AUX mode it cycles through CD>USB>PHONE
I Also found this in the 2011 user manual

and BTW to find out what software ver. all you have to do is with the truck turned on to acc make sure the radio is off and hold down the #1 and #6 and there it is.

Lets start the calling so we can get the newest upgrade.

The dealer was no help they just told us to go buy a trac phone and the Kia #800 told us you should have checked the web site before buying the truck and it's a Blackberry issue and Blackberry saying it a Kia issue.
So the moral of the story is Blackberry's and 2011 Kia Souls Bluetooth do not mix well at all.
