    Here is the best deal and its plug and play just install in my friends 2011 Prius. ONLY $360 for full Navi and we add the back up camera as well

    Individuated DVD logo Display
    Built in TV tuner, PAL/NTSC or SECAM compatible; FM/AM tuner; 4X45W amplifier
    Picture-in-picture Function
    Picture in Picture (PiP) is a feature of some television receivers and similar devices. One program (channel) is displayed on the full TV screen at the same time as one or more other programs are displayed in inset windows. Sound is usually from the main program only. Picture in Picture is often used to watch one program while waiting for another to start, or advertisements to finish. With PiP) function of the car DVD, you don’t have to worry about missing the programs you want to watch both.
    3D Flash Graphical User Interface (3D Flash GUI)
    3D Flash Graphical User Interface provides you with the High-definition visual enjoyment.
    A graphical user interface (GUI) is a type of user interface item that allows people to interact with programs in more ways than typing such as computers; hand-held devices such as MP3 players, portable media players or gaming devices; household appliances and office equipment with images rather than text commands. A GUI offers graphical icons, and visual indicators, as opposed to text-based interfaces, typed command labels or text navigation to fully represent the information and actions available to a user. The actions are usually performed through direct manipulation of the graphical elements.
    FM/AM Radio Function
    High sensitive digital Tuner with stronger signal supports FM/AM. With this function, you can search your favorite radio channel and enjoy the music during your driving. There are 32 stations in store for you to select.
    Bluetooth Function
    Bluetooth is an open wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances (using short length radio waves) from fixed and mobile devices, creating personal area networks with high levels of security. Today Bluetooth is managed by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group.

    I cant post the link I can email you if interested

    Totally agree. I do the same as you. I realize the Prius uses 2 drives and one can't expect them to always be seemless when switching to and fro between. This is why I don't floor it from a dead stop. I also start slow and then accelerate. I let EV get me rolling then let the ICE take over. Judging from the way Honda does it (and the CVT problems with their first gen), the Prius tranny is a work of art compared to them.

    I know what they think. But someone has to guide them, right? As someone who works as an electronics technician (got my management degree and MBA just because the company paid for it) I sometimes have to find ways of shoreing up deficiencies when I see common failures. Now that I'm on my own I can beef up sub-standard circuitry and not have to fill out the paperwork (and step on said engineers toes at the same time). Lots of politics and egos involved when I was with Xerox. I once initiated a company wide retrofit from some design guys mistake. Cost less than a penny to rectify a problem when the guys above me were spending 6 digits on a pointless redesign of a part. They left off a thrust washer and tried to blame manufacturing.

    Yes, then a BA from Auburn University and an MBA from Emory University with a cumulative GPA of 3.98. And a Doctorate of Jurisprudence from Faulkner University, Jones Law School. Never took the bar. I make more at what I do in electronics than I ever would as an attorney.

    So yes, Sage. I started out at a community college.

    I am in love with the Garmin nuvi 2595 with LIFETIME maps and traffic that my dad got me for Christmas. I even named her.

    No, she doesn't integrate directly into the car, but it'll work on any car. :) She anticipates well how and when to give directions and knows in real-time what traffic is ahead on your route, re-routing you dynamically if there is a faster route available. If there is significant traffic ahead, the traffic bubble will change from green to yellow or red depending on how severe the traffic is, along with an estimate of how many minutes the traffic will delay you.

    We've used it to scout ahead for restaurants, hotels, and gas stations along the route. It has the phone numbers for these locations.

    It also has other features that I haven't tried yet such as audiobooks. bluetooth connectivity, maintains your travel history, picture viewer, calculator, unit converter, trip planner, etc.
