    We got the DVD navigation system with our 05 Prius but there was little if any mention of "Voice-Activation" in the owners manual. I noticed it looks pretty much the same as my 08 Lexus IS250 so we've recently been using the DVD-Nav supplemental manual that came with the Lexus for the Prius. Most things seem similar but is there an online manual anywhere for the Gen 4 Toyota system?

    Also, is the DVD Nav rearview camera retro-fittable to the 05?

    Thanks!

    You might check out Toyota.com. There is a very good demo on using the NAV system. Go there and select Prius, then select the Demos/Videos tab, then select Navigation System. It will walk you thru all of the NAV systems usages including inputs and deletions. You may be able to view or order a NAV manual that you are searching for.

    Good Luck!!!

    Thanks, that's great. Interestingly, the frequently referred to "DVD Navigation Manual" does not exist in my documentation. Maybe the 2004/2005 models didn't have detailed instructions (odd). But "Google is your friend" and I got the complete list of the commands here on PriusChat (strangely, the PriusChat search function didn't find this post or, if it did, it was buried among other posts).
