    Hopefully this question makes sense: I have (and love!) a 2016 Prius V ("package v," meaning it has the adaptive cruise control, XM radio, fog lights, etc.) - it's been a great car since I bought it lightly-used from Carmax 4 years ago. However, there's one little quirk that I find super annoying:

    When I'm listening to music on the XM radio, the LCD screen will show the station name, sometimes the artist photo in thumbnail-form, and then the artist name + song title. The annoyance is this: many song titles are longer than the one in the pic below, and rather than slowly scrolling the title (or just dynamically resizing the text), it just does... nothing. Half the songs that come on have weirdly-truncated titles!

    Here's a pic I shot recently (taken mid-roadtrip, please forgive how dusty it is!) for illustration - it's a funny example, but since it didn't sound like a passionate ode to the keto diet, I'm like 99% sure this song isn't actually called "I Believe In Fat:"

    How do I get this thing to display the complete song title!?

    Thanks for any tips, or just for commiserating over this stupid behavior.

    So far as I know, Panasonic did not allow for that. It is annoying.
