See post #3130, which answered your first post of this problem. You can have the dealer reprogram your climate system to keep it from automatically changing your recirc setting.

Correction. The temp controls are on the right side of the steering wheel of the TCH.

I am about to buy a 2009 Camry Hybrid and we wanted leather seats. In order to get these we must order the Premium package with navigation system at a cost of 3500.00$ canadian. I was wondering if anyone had this option and if so if they thought it was worth it or not?

Don't be so cheap. This car drives like a luxury car so you might as well make yourself feel rich. $3,500 is not that much if you think about having the car for five years. While you're at it, for an extra $300 get the trunk lip, the car looks much better with it.

In Canada we don't get the trunk lip, we get the full fledged boy racer spoiler
I looked at the US website and liked to trunk lip, but the spoiler is just plain ugly (IMO).

You should go ahead and get the package if you can afford it. A side benefit of having the larger display that goes along with the navigation system so you can see all the hybrid displays. The leather, Navigation, larger display, etc, are all worth it. The car looks and drives like a more expensive luxury car and the package rounds it out.

just got my 09 TCH 3 weeks ago, and while I do use the electronic data display, I'm not really in love with the leather quality. My dealer had a trunk lip as an option, but I figured it couldn't help the mileage (and it was ridiculously expensive for what it is)
I bought mine in Burlington, Ontario. The price difference between the base and the Nav model was $2,800. Go back to you dealer and ask for a better price!
After a few weeks, I don't use the data display much, because I have learned how to drive it to maximize my mileage (I've averaged 50 mpg so far). I do use the GPS daily, but Toyotas DVD is hopelessly out of date. Houses that have been built for 3 years are not in the database, and the new highway that opened in Hamilton last year (and has been on the books for at least 10 years) isn't in it. They say a new one is coming out in the fall, but it will be $300.00. That burns me!
If I did it again, I'm not sure I woud get the Nav. I can get a really good GPS for under $500.00 and use it in my other vehicle, and the leather is so-so looking and feeling.
