Day mode is can be set by having your headlights on and having the dash lights turned all the way up to maximum. It is intended for driving with the lights on in the day. If you turn your dashboard light intensity down it assumes you are driving at night and switches to night mode.
If you have the dash light thumbwheel turned all the way up and clicked into maximum it removes the "daylight mode" from your screen options when using the navigation controls.
That's the only problem.

Thanks, you're absolutely right.

Have you tried changing your area/region? Which state do you live in?
When you press the DEST (Destination) button, you'll see a United States map on the right with the label "Search Area". Make sure that your region is highlighted.
If not, touch the "Change" area on the screen. Touch the region you live in, one of "US1" through "US10" and "CAN". Touch the "OK" area and the Destination screen will display again.
Now, try looking for your home address.
I've had this problem when I first got my Prius. It's a little annoying compared to the more annoying "feature" where they decided we cannot operate the GPS while in motion (except through voice which has limited capabilities).
Note: If you are looking for areas beyond the region you are in, you would need to change it first as described above, then enter the address or POI again.

One of my keys has quit working. I think it needs a batter. Can that be changed and do I do that at the dealer or can I do it myself?

Toyota just released the new V9.1 DVD map disc. I picked up mine for $199! I bought one 2 years ago for $265.
I also got the part numbers for all of the Prius years:
Toyota Part # Part # disc Year
86271-GEN04-09 86271-33049 2004-2005
86271-GEN05-09 86271-53024 2006-2009

#32 of 65 Map split screen is annoying
Sep 09, 2009 (10:56 am)
I can see where having the map change to a split screen automatically when you're not sure where you're going, but most of the time it's just annoying. Can this auto change behavior be disabled, how?

I just bought a Prius 2010 . the seller told me that it has the latest version of NAV DVD. It is v8.1. Has anyone never version of this?
Oct 08, 2009 (11:31 am)
The next Nav DVD normally comes out in November of each year. Every other year they update either the West Coast of the US or the East Coast of the US.
The next Nav DVD should have the latest data for the West Coast included... but currently 8.1 is the latest until the next one shows up.
#35 of 65 Battery drain issues?
Oct 14, 2009 (4:17 pm)
I'm thinking about buying a simple GPS unit for my 2006 Prius, and am wondering if there are any battery/power drain issues that I should be concerned about. Also, any recommendations? I don't need one with lots of bells & whistles, but may consider one with hands-free cell phone capability.
