    Hello, all! This is my first post - this weekend I purchased a used 2015 Prius Four and I LOVE IT. I've learned so much already by browsing these forums, but I do have one pesky thing that is bothering me that I haven't found an answer to yet and can't seem to figure out after RTFM and playing around with the actual system...

    I doubt I will use the NAV system much; I'm partial to Google Maps, and my NAV maps haven't been updated since 2014 and I refuse to pay to update it. Mostly, I just want to see the audio screen since it's the one I use the most. However, for some reason, if I am on the audio screen and have selected a station or whatever, it always eventually goes back to the NAV screen. Is there any way to keep it on the audio screen? Can I make the audio screen my default somehow, or is it always going to eventually go back to NAV?

    Thanks in advance for dropping any knowledge you may have! And thanks for this amazing forum!!!

    Kelly

    actually, i've never heard of that before. unless they changed it since 2012, the car defaults to audio. do you have an audio button that switches it from the map to radio?

    I have the same experience as bisco does and I have a 2012 four. Do you have the one with the 7 inch screen and the nav buttons around the edges? Maybe it's different for that one.

    Yep. But once I've selected something on audio, after a few seconds it goes back to the map. Drives me bananas!

    You guys are so lucky! :) Per the salesman, the nav system in my car is an "upgrade" from the typical unit, so I think it is a bigger screen. There are probably 6-8 buttons on each side. I also have the solar panel ventilation system - so it came with whatever package included that.

    I think that one has map control buttons instead of the apps button. There may be a default setting - have you found the car settings menu yet? Sorry I can't be more help, I'm not familiar with the upgraded nav
