Try 08620-2L000. 96125-2L000 also works just fine. It's a special cable that enables the soul to have full iPod integration. Works great and it's not that expensive.

You have to purchase to cord that kia sells with the Soul,............it's kind of a gimmick but if you want to listen to it you'll have to purchase it. Although the cord that is used with the LG Dare works just fine. So maybe I don't know what I am talking about. But when I tried to connect my Itouch it said "error" and nothing would work.

When I plugged in my I pod with the special cable made by Kia it picked it up at the first try. I can change tracks etc. with the radio controls. It sounds as good or better than the Sirius reception.

Yesterday I plugged in a USB thumb drive where I previously stored some music, in MP3 format, about 4-500 tracks were on it. The Soul picked up the drive within 5 seconds and went to play the 1st track. The radio controls work going from track to track, forward or backward. The manual recommends not to start the car unless the USB device is removed. I took a chance and it didn't hurt the thumb drive. If you park the car and leave the thumb drive plugged in, it will go to the last track whichever was playing when the engine was stopped. The only negative is that you can't go to another track in a random order. These drives often sell for less than $ 10 - compared to the price of an I pod or any other MP3 player, they are a bargain.

We bought a 32gb USB flash drive for our Soul, and sorted all of our music into folders, plugged it in and away we went. You can sort through the folders using the category button and flip through the songs with the up and down button on the wheel. The flash drive was cheap and was a great alternative to an IPod or an MP3 Player. Check out the prices for an MP3/Ipod vs USB Flash drive, you'll see what I mean.

The other advantage of the USB drive over the I pod is the ease of use when setting it up. I'm using Windows PCs since 1991, but setting up my 80 GB I pod Classic was a frustrating experience. I was able to master it, but I never enjoy the hassle of adding new material. With the thumb drive, if you know how to copy, cut, and paste you are done in a few minutes. And it will be easy to reorganize the music according to your preference. Long live the Soul. If only the driver seat would have better adjustments.

I used a regular USB jump drive. There are folders and sub folders, all of which are recognized by the car and the category button. All folders are listed in alpha order regardless of if they are a folder or sub folder. I love this imformation and do not havbe to spend $150.00. I spent $15.00 instead! Thanks.
#11 of 11 Gapless MP3 Playback
Apr 20, 2012 (5:30 pm)
Does anyone know how to get the player to play gapless? Any live album or say the Abbey Road "Side 2 Suite" have split second gaps in between the songs, I am trying to figure out a way to have the songs play with no gaps in between. Will the mp3 player do this?
