Apologies to the OP - I don't have an answer for your question about "certified Lightning to USB angled head connector
". My response is mostly to what others have posted after you started this thread.
My phone doesn't have wireless charging capability, so I turned off that feature. I can put my commodity BLU phone in the charging area, though I don't recall if it lies flat or not. But it fits and rides fine there.
wrote, the entertainment system is kind of a disappointment, although I think it has some decent features too. I recall a time years ago when I was shopping for a used car and the car salesman didn't know diddly about the car I was looking at so he tried to impress me by demonstrating the radio and windshield wipers. Back in those days, I didn't even consider the radio when I was car shopping, because I had a tendency to replace the factory radio with something more to my liking. But I don't think I'd dare to replace the head unit in the Niro, due to it's integration with the computer systems that run the drive train. Has anyone done this? Apparently I need to change my car shopping habits and pay more attention to this sort of thing in the future.
As for some of the above comments: yes, the USB port under the head unit is anemic when it comes to charging. I prefer the one under the armrest. But if I really wanted a fast charge, I'd plug in a USB adapter to one of the 12v sockets. At least this car still provides those. As for the storage in the entertainment unit, search the owner's manual for "My Music": I'm looking at page 5-15 of the PDF that I downloaded a few months ago and it talks about how to copy music from a USB stick to the onboard memory (I haven't actually tried to use this feature yet, but the manual claims it has a capacity of 700 MB and I think that equates to a capacity of about 10 music CDs, depending on your configuration options when you burn them to disk/memory stick). If you want more storage than that, I recently picked up a a 128 GB USB memory stick for about $32 and it seems to work fine in the Niro. I have to admit that I initially knocked the Niro for lack of a CD player, but now that I've hit on burning my CDs to a USB stick (thanks to suggestions from another poster on this forum), I'm starting to think that it was my own technology that was somewhat lacking, rather than the Niro: the USB option works well and takes up a lot less space than CDs, but let's me carry around a lot more music.
Also, I believe that there is a separate infotainment manual that came with my car, and also available for download from https://owners.kia.com/us/en/referen...l?page=manuals
, not sure if it's also available on the corresponding Canadian site or not. Hope this info helps.
