GEN 5.0 Multimedia Update

The 5th generation of GEN 5.0 multimedia devices (radios, head units) are being installed in Kia and Hyundai cars since 2016. The GEN 5.0 platform uses OS Android 4.2 and has both 7″ and 8″screens.

In previous years car manufacturers installed radios of the younger generations: GEN 1.0, GEN 2.0, GEN 4.0.

How To Find Out GEN 5.0 Software Version

  1. Turn on the multimedia device.
  2. Press once the Setup button on the front panel and scroll to the bottom of the list. The System Information button will appear, click it. The System Information or System Information or Version Information or General Settings window will open (depending on a device model).
  3. The Software Version is shown in the line “SW Version” or “S/W Ver.” or “System S/W”. For example, TL.EUR.SOP.V112.191217.STD_M.
  4. Determine a type of your GEN 5.0 radio device by the software version:
  • xx.EUR.SOP.xxx.x.xxxxxx, xx.EUR.SOP.xxx.xx.xxxxxx (LG)
  • xx.EUR.SOP.Vxxx.xx.xxxx.STD_M (Mobis with SD Card & Navi)
  • xx.EUR.SOP.Vxxx.xx.xxxx.DAU_A (Mobis without SD Card & Navi)
  • xx_PIO.GEN.SOP.xxx.x.xxxxxx.STD_M (Motrex)
  • (and others)

The GEN 5.0 radio (LG IAH8434UMNG or Mobis ADB10H0RE, OS Android 4.2) is installed.
For example, UM_19MY.EUR.SOP.003.20.180418.STD_M, TLFL.EUR.SOP.V112.200401.STD_M, QLPE.EUR.SOP.V096.180503.DAU_A.
