    How do you cancel a trip routing while it is active without deleting the destination? I have not found hw in the navigation manual.

    In the options menu - you can suspend guidance.

    even if you delete the trip to stop guidance, the destination stays in the "recent" list.

    Masta Kevin is a wealth of information. :) Thank you sir.

    I have also canceled a trip by pressing the talk button on the steering wheel, and saying: Cancel Navigation. or Cancel Destination. Is that the same thing we are talking about? (And the destination still stayed in the recents list.)

    Did you tint your front windshield Kevin? I see you have a new photo. Very nice.

    No tint in front. My old eyes couldn't take that.

    Voice commands "pause guidance" and "resume guidance" are your friends.

    To cancel the route, I have the best success with "cancel all destinations" -- the "all" is important. Otherwise it asks you which destination to delete even if there's only one on your route. That said, sometimes it misses hearing the "all" and takes you the multi-prompt way like it did for me tonight.

    If you cancel the route and change your mind, say "navigate to a previous destination" and it will list the last five and ask you to choose; say "one" for the most recent.

    I greatly prefer pause and resume because it keeps the entire route in memory. You can use the address book to save destinations, but this is tremendously useful with multi-waypoint routes (one or more intermediate destinations) which AFAIK you can't save. If I reach a waypoint but want to drive around the vicinity without it trying at every turn to take me to my next destination, I can pause and then resume later. It will remember your route until you cancel it or replace it with a new one.

    The options menu, Pause guidance is only option, not suspend. That's what appears when I go there. Is ther another option?

    I thought you didn't want to delete the destination. to suspend, just delete the destination.

    Isn't Pause and Suspend the same thing?

    I wondered this myself and had to dive into the manual to discover...there is no "cancel" in the sense that my old Garmin had a cancel. You can pause it or you can delete it but deleting the destination doesn't mean it's deleted out of the favorites (if you set it up that way), it just deletes the destination for that particular trip.

    On the other hand, if you want to pause it and resume it later, you have that option as well as some others have mentioned. Not exactly intuitive but it works.

    The 2016 GPS I feel is tons better somehow and more intuitive than the previous Generations ones... I am happy I paid the premium for it this time as opposed to getting pissed off/ lost or turned around with the Gen 3 GPS many times in the past in my last 2 liftback Gen 3's and my wife's v....

    And yeah, pause guidance on the gps screen is what I've been using but thanks for letting us know about the voice command options too. I need to start using and learning the voice command options more in the future.

    Depends on the system you had prior. Judging by your comments, is it safe to say you had the 6.1" Display Audio System (the one that looked like a Garmin interface with blue or purple font colour)

    I previously owned a 2013 liftback three, a 2015 Persona and currently own and my wife drives a 2014 v three. All of those had the same GPS and they were not impressive to say the least....Entune...well that's for another time and place...

    My new 2016 three w / ATP's GPS seems to work a lot better and seems easier to operate is all I'm saying...plus the POI and Exit info is pretty awesome on the new GPS..

    We drove the v a few months ago on a 1900 mile round trip road trip, and let me tell you, it got us all screwed up a few times. My wife took over driving because I got tired and it somehow wanted us to exit into Washington DC over and over, which she did... (the one place we didn't want to go, and the main reason we left at 0300 to bypass that mess) heading south.... Long story short I canceled that trip and set my IPhone 6plus directly In front of the GPS screen for the remainder of the trip both ways... With no issue. LOL!!

    And yeah we tried all the different settings, shortest , quickest...etc. either way, Philly to Hilton head Island is not quicker or shorter via a scenic detour through some of the worst congestion on the east coast...:cautious:

    We just had the wife's 2013 premium HD nav replaced under warranty. Wasn't sure we were going to get it covered, but they finally agreed it was defective. Had video showing us on the freeway doing 60 and the old unit -- if you would believe it -- thought we were facing backwards and stationary.

    I'm hoping that the new unit will change my opinion of that equipment. I ranked it worse than my previous '05. The 2016 so far acts as expected and is an improvement.

    Yup, they're all using the 3rd party headunit. It hasn't gotten great reviews (both on PriusChat and by friends that own Toyotas with that headunit). Five models (and Four w/ Deluxe Solar Roof on the Liftback) get a 7" Denso headunit with Toyota's proprietary navigation system (the same one on your 2016).

    Toyota's gotten rid of that HK unit. Looks like all 2016 models will go back to Toyota's in-house nav.
