Changing the stereo in a Kia Picanto (2011-2017)

The standard factory stereo in the Kia Picanto isn’t very exciting…it can play music from your phone but with an awkward twist-wheel navigation. Behind the stereo is a space that can easily hold a double-din stereo allowing you to upgrade to a nice after-market stereo that supports CarPlay.

In this video I show you how to replace the stereo with an after market stereo. Note: This doesn’t retain the existing USB or Aux in, you’ll need to wire your own from your new stereo or use this kit to adapt the existing one.

The two products shown in the video are the Pioneer SPC-DA130DB CarPlay stereo which is an excellent product (review here) and the Kia Picanto car kit which includes a new fascia and all the cables you need.
