    Carista comes with a 30-day free app trial if you buy the dongle. Otherwise a one-month subscription is available. It offers an assortment of beep settings on my '18, including the reverse beep.

    The constant beeping can also mask various warning beeps. One beep is just fine with me. It confirms that, when I put the car in reverse, it actually went into reverse. ;)

    That is the main reason I disabled the continuous reverse beeping. It masked proximity warnings.

    a lot of those settings are already in the standard menu. Apart from turn off the Truck reverse beep what is worthwhile

    Yap, it's not worth paying the subscription fee. I already had an OBDLink LX dongle and used Carista app free trial to change a few settings. Didn't cost me anything. Stopped subscription before the free trial ended. If you read the manual under "Customization", you will find several features that are listed as being customizable only by your Toyota dealer. It requires Techstream to change those settings.

    There are a quite few of those items that can not be customized either using the setting menu of the MID or Nav display. All items below with only #3 marked with "o" can be changed only with Techstream or with Carista.

    Update - I was able to successfully change the reverse beeping to just one beep using the Dr. Prius Android App and this BT OBDII Dongle:
    which was recommended by the Dr. Prius website. Its good to know that something like Carista is available should I ever want to upgrade/change my factory head unit!

    We used the same tools! I bought the precise dongle recommended by Dr. Prius... lots of junk on Amazon nowadays.

    It sure is dangerous. Today I paid almost $600 for passenger side mirror replacement. Why? Because when I am backing out of the driveway, every other sound is obscured due to the incessant beeping. So when I approached a full compost bin loaded with sod, I didn't notice the warning.

    That was the main reason I changed it to one beep. It was too easy to confuse the proximity alerts with the backup beep.

    I think that this has been "fixed" on the 2021.

    No. The backup beeping has been eliminated on 2022 PP.
