#55 of 65 Question on Navigation Screen
Dec 14, 2010 (5:53 am)
I have the Prius V with the Navigation system. When i press the "Audio" button on the Navigation system, i get to see all my presets for FM, SAT, and AM in a tabbed format. But after about 10 seconds, the screen defaults back to the Map view even though i am not using the Maps for guidance or directions. How can i have it set so that the "Audio" screen stays put when i press it, instead of defaulting to the Map screen.

Is it feasible to install the Nav DVD upgrade yourself or is it better to take to the dealer? Thanks.

I live in Alaska and our state has NEVER been included on the mapping for the Prius Nav system. So it is completely useless to us up here. What infuriates me is that every other make of car (inlcuding the Lexus!) has a functional and ACCURATE navigational system up here, but Toyota refuses to accomodate us in any way, claiming that their vendor hasn't included Alaska. So I think they should offer a substantail rebate to all PRIUS owners in Alaska, for an absolutely useless feature on our cars. I have called and e-mailed Toyota every year I have owned a Prius (now on my second one) and I just get pat answers; no real clue to their intent. I was told that their software vendor doesn't include Alaska and has no plans to in the future.......

I have the same problem, partly due to the change of addresses when the 911 system in our area was implimented, So when I was at my home address I got the coordinates and added it as my home and it works fine from that point.
#60 of 65 Screwed up Navagation system
Oct 08, 2011 (12:41 pm)
I posted this message in the wrong area (land cruiser) so am re-posting it here.
I was playing around with my Nav system by going into the mode to get the over ride. I noticed on one of the menus that was there is a list of maps so I clicked on the first one which happened t be Japanese. Now it says insert new disk, obviously I don't have one. What I can't do is get back to the original system. Now the menu button is dead, only have partial use of my blue tooth, and can't get back to the screen with the volume icon to get back where I screwed up. I've learned my lesson don't play with toys I have limited knowledge about.

Just a guess, you might try forcing a reboot of the system by unplugging the boxes (under the driver's seat). There may be a button to do this, too.

I have the same problem with my 2010 Prius although Hawaii, 1/100th the size of Alaska got there Prius updated last year. I paid $2500 for something I can't use and have complained but no one has replied. I love my Prius but will never buy a Toyota again, although this is the third time I bought a vehicle from them. When it is time to get a new car again next year, I will definitely shop somewhere else.
