I did not like the turn signals in the bumper, but decided I could live with it. Now I have ordered a hitch for the car, I realize my bike rack will block the turn signals. Arrgh!
Can you please share a picture of the hitch when you have it installed? Am interested to see if the whole hitch is visible and if it lowers the car’s clearance like the sienna that looks like a U-Hall hitch or do you only see the receiver like the odyssey?

Just got an SX Prestige and when I try to mirror movies that I own, or to use an entertainment app it says that it can’t be displayed. Anyone else having this issue or found a fix? At this point the rear entertainment seems to only be good for YouTube and Netflix.

Might need to start a PSA thread on this specific topic. You need the RSE Remote outlined in the manual. From there you can pretty much mirror anything. Other options include hard wire with lightning to HDMI or installing a Roku or Fire Stick.

My daughter was able to use her hot spot from her iphone to watch Netflix today!
Yes, the supplemental manual for the screens says that airplay works if the device is using its own hot spot. I haven’t played with them at all yet to determine if it has the be the devices hot spot or “any” hot spot.

None of my kids’ apple devices have LTE, all wifi only. So I may be out of luck.

Thx! That looks like the OEM right? Did you install it yourself? Am considering doing it myself if not too involved...
Yes OEM Kia hitch. I installed myself-six bolts and some trimming of black plastic. A bit of pain lowering the exhaust hanger to get the hitch around the exhaust. I back the van up on some bricks on a curb.

Thx! This is helpful. Also saw your other pictures from another post. Did the hitch come with clear installation instructions? How did you figure out what and how much to cut or how to lower the exhaust hanger - or is it just common sense?

My 2007 Odyssey is completely concealed (other than the receiver) which looks much better, but it is only one inch higher off the ground than yours, because the Carnival without a hitch has the highest ground clearance in the minivan category.
