I was in-line on a waiting list for a 2006 package 7 Prius, but decided instead to opt out for the 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid. I added an xm radio package to my 06 Civic Hybrid which included their navigation system - at a cost of 24,500. I did not get the backup camera that the Prius offers, and my seats do not fold back. But, I have to tell you that the 06 Civic is a greatly improved Hybrid over their earlier models, and I think very comparable (and cheaper with the NAV) to the Prius. It was also named motortrends car of the year. The voice activated Nav system is awesome. You can call out commands to change radio stations, set your thermostat, and of course find routes for you with the GPS. Another fantastic feature the car has is its ability to accept a scandisk flash card to play audio mp3 and WMA files. This literally allows you to look at your music folders on the Nav System, and track and play your songs by title or artist. I actually was able to record around 660 songs from my windows media player onto my scandisk pc compact flash card. My first tanks gas mileage was 50MPG, although I do tend to drive slow on the highways to get that mileage. By slow I mean 55-60MPH. The mileage tends to drop into the mid to upper 40's when I go 70-75MPH. Anyway, I do not regret switching from the Prius to the Civic Hybrid. I saved a few bucks and I really like my new car. I should get an estimated 2,100 tax credit which is less than the 3,150 from the Pruis, but I am happy with my decision. Good luck to all.
