      can we just have a little info on the 'all electric Prius instead of always being directed to the hybrid?

      Well pictures probably are better then words to show the Nav system:

      Here's a video that goes over the in dash display:

      I haven't been in a GenII during a bright day to say which system has better visibility. Even though the hybrid icons are smaller in the Gen III, I think they're pretty well designed (and since it's monochromatic in the recessed dash...I don't get glare). Every once in awhile, when I'm on the highway during a bright day, there is glare on the Nav display.

      I got my car last August: when gas prices were pretty low. The main incentives they were running was complimentary 2 year service plan. Without the trade-in...sales tax and everything, my Prius cost 29k

      Hey ctbering - I loved my berner 'McKinley' but we actually had to put him down after 16 months. He had some bad wiring and wanted to kill my wife - hard to believe right ? Not typical of breed. It was one of the most difficult decisions I've had to make. He was a bit spooky with visitors but to me and my son he was the best. She fed and loved him and if I hadn't seen it myself, I'd not believe her. Since then, I spoke to a woman who introduced us to the breed. She had a great big loveable berner from the same breeder. The dog was awesome. That's why we got our from the same breeder. I just spoke to her a few months ago. Seems her berner Teton has had major issues with aggression - tried to kill UPS guy and she can't trust him any longer. Something is definitely up with the breeder's stock in my mind and makes me feel a bit better about the horrible decision I had to make. I would like to get another one but definitely not from this breeder. I never had a dog that I enjoyed as much. I have a golden retriever who is awesome but never felt as connected to him as I do to mckinley. They are just so intelligent and make and keep eye contact unlike the retrievers. As a puppy there is nothing more wonderful than the berner.

      Thanks. It was my first public performance. I'd like to become good enough to pick up a few paying performances here and there.

      Thanks for the compliment :) I was browsing your album trying to guess which is the princess, but they both look pretty well loved.

      I have no idea what this "visitor message" business is... but what the hey. My "other car" is my main car. And it is a 2002 Rav4EV. Full battery electric. The Prius is driven once or twice a month at most.

      1- Turn car on, cycle odo to read odo and not trip a or b
      2- Turn car off
      3- Turn car on, within 6 seconds press odo and HOLD it
      4- While still holding odo shift into reverse
      5- While still holding odo press park, odo will change to b-on
      6- Press odo once, b-on will become b-off
      7- Turn car off
      8- Turn car on, wait for normal start up beeps to finish and shift silently into

      You too! I thought I was going to be the only green Prius in town, but I've seen at least 3 SPM's in the last 4 days! So much for being unique.

      Oh yes, I've heard that song (great song, BTW). But I want my Prius now. :)
