So after some super light research and quick google searches, I was able to find the infotainment for non-ultimates, as well as the ultimates.
It seems the first issue to figure out when ordering an Ultimate Trim Infotainment, or ANY other infotainment to plug in to the current vehicle - we would have to figure out if there is going to be some issues with VIN mismatch, ultimately stopping certain functions from working, or even allowing the car to start?
Might be futile to even consider it, depending on how integrated the infotainment system is to the rest of the vehicle, especially when things get further complicated with Blue-link.
I own 2020 Kona EV comes with 10.3 screen standards noting to retrofitHello,
As the title suggests. Preliminary research here. Is there any possible way to retrofit the 8" infotainment system to the Limited Model that comes with the 7"er?
I wonder if it utilizes the same back-end infrastructure for the connections?
Hi TwosixD,There are a lot of functions integrated into the media center headunit and its amplifier. If you're going to swap out with an aftermarket system there are a great deal of adapters, interfaces, wiring harnesses and other things required to retain full functionality. I looked into it to upgrade mine to a fully android based media system and it was quite an involved and expensive process. But it is possible.
However swapping out the 7" for an 8" OEM unit shouldn't be a problem, it's just that those head units are super expensive in and of themselves.
