    This is the only method that works. You can't use the procedure that worked on the Gen II.

    Have access to multiple Macs, iPhones and iPads. Not a single android device or PC. Anyone with options on how to modify the car setting using Mac? (success using the emulator idea above?)
    - turn off reverse beep.
    - open all doors via proximity (always wanting to open back door first to toss in bags etc)
    - turn off GPS motion lock. (or set to allow passengers to operate ... sensing weight on seat?)
    - any way of remote opening hatch? convert panic button to remote open hatch?
    - any way to auto-turn on day-time running lights?
    (never understood why my 1999 Camry had a sensor for auto adjusting day-time running lights/dash etc, and my 2010 Prius V doesn't)

    UPDATE:
    There is Engine Link for the iOS which is supposed to work w/the Soliport ELM 327. (not yet verified)

    I've had the reverse warning changed to a single beep but can this be turned off completely?. Since fitting aftermarket reverse sensors I've now got two beeps when selecting reverse. It's a bit annoying and would be better with just one. I'm not sure if my reversing sensors initial beep can be silenced.

    Mike, a single beep and continuous beeps are the only choices in software.

    Thanks mate. I'll have to live with the double beep.

    Thank you also, mandasol, from me. I ordered my OBDII scanner over the weekend and it arrived Monday - pretty quick service. I made my way through your instructions and voila! no more reverse beep. That was pretty slick.

    Regards,
    Allen

    No success yet through the iPhone or Mac. Part arrived, but nothing picking up the bluetooth signal.

    Thanks to Mandasol for the tip on the cheap OBDII scanner on Amazon and the great instructions
    for disabling the annoying reverse beep. Other than the reverse and seatbelt beeps is there anything else people
    disable on a regular basis?

    I turned off the headlight delay, but you can do that without OBDII

    You have a gen 2 Prius, not a Prius v. So you want a similar thread in the Gen 2 forum.

    Do you not have a 2008 Prius? That is Gen 2.

    Ah, then I am giving you bad advice. The dealer can set that, and I would have made it a condition of sale if it was me.

    I just thought it could be done with the torque app. Is that not possible?
