I just bought a 2006 and have the same situation. I called Leesburg Toyota in Leesburg VA and was quoted $210 for an update disc. Still seems like a bunch. I think I'll have to get hopelessly lost once before I dig that deep. So far the nav system works just fine. I really like the car.
#45 of 65 will GPS DVD upgrade for 2006 Prius speak street names

Hello, recently received a notice for $199 GPS DVD upgrade. Does anyone know if it will speak more street and road names. Currently, it does not speak street names.

Sorry... your GEN5 navigation system features are fixed. The map update will only provide new streets and business information called point of interest (POIs).
The GEN6 navigation system in the 2010 Prius does offer turn-by-turn guidance for streets in addition to freeway on-ramps and off-ramps.

#48 of 65 2010 Prius Navigation Fault
Aug 04, 2010 (2:00 pm)
Since new whenever the car boots up in the morning and occasionally at random other times, the DVD for the nav reboots. This resets the search area, keyboard type and if you aren't aware of this the map will be tryiong to search some other area. Does Toyota have any tech support number other than the dealer who is no help at all? I need a tech support guy who know the system so I can take his information back to the dealer. Is there a battery or capacitor keeping the stored information live that isn't doing it's job? Any help would be appreciated. The car does well otherwise and naviogates ok after reloading the DVD several times a day.
Thanks for any input

Hi - did you find out if the split screen can be disabled? If so, can you share the instructions? I find it annoying as well! Thanks,

My nav map shows icons for gas stations, restaurants, etc. I don't want these icons to show up but am having trouble removing them permanantly. Can anyone help with the instructions to do this?

Hi, can someone tell me how to get the nav system to provide directions using highways? I have it set to highways but it still wants to take me on every back road imaginable....thanks.

I bought a 2008 Prius and the GPS unit is worthless. The map was outdated from the start and does not have many addresses that have been there for years. In addition, there is a great deal of wrong information.
THE Prius GPS units are a RIP OFF. Don't waste your money. If you are going to buy a Prius with one in it, make sure they give you the latest update as part of the deal. You are better off getting a Garmin or a Nuvi, they are more accurate and have a lot better features.
There should be a class action lawsuit about their map DVD's. They are not accurate or up to date. This is very similar to the 15" monitor lawsuit years ago and Toyota should be giving free updates to everyone. Let me know if anyone has a suit going and I will join!
#53 of 65 2008 Prius Nav/GPS Update DVD
Dec 12, 2010 (9:34 am)
I bought a 2008 Prius new in May of 2008 and have not yet updated the GPS. Has anyone found a way to update it for a reasonable cost? Is the dealer price for the DVD really $199.?
