    Thanks, It appears there is no way to move the arrow to the correct side of the compass. Actually read the manual and played with the settings. This will require a FW flash for the NAV System or a new DVD. I think we are stuck with it. However, you can select a section of the compass/looks like a 140 degree path and that is a little better on the eyes. But I put mine back to factory settings. Just fly backwards.:LOL:

    Project for the day. What will happen if you back up with the garage door closed? Will it auto stop?

    On the UK nav map screen, there is map layout button on the top right of the screen (a little compass arrow) where you can cycle through 3D heading, 2D heading and 2D North settings, do you not have that on the US nav ?

    Same in the US.

    Changing these orientations on the big screen also changes the orientation on the MID screen, of course.

    I think the point of contention for a compass purist is that the pointy end of the triangle indicting direction is in the center of the compass rose. Or not, just my guess.

    I'm happy now. The red arrow on the Nav map is now configured to always be pointing in the direction I'm traveling. Seems much easier to read the map that way. A simple press of the button in the upper left corner of the Nav screen, did it. Thank you. (My apologies for not studying the Navigation instruction book more closely.)

    Thanks,

    This is what I tried this morning. See post on 140 degree arch. The bottom of the compass is missing navigational markers but that is ok. I prefer a full compass as bad as it is. LOL

    OK, next Easter egg hunt. Seems I remember getting a card or key chain tag for my Collision notification system /SOS button for my last two Prius'. You call the number if it is stolen and they immobilize and track your car. Was never given these and the sticker says free the first year.

    I'd help you out but looks like I threw the paper away. I had to call the SOS connect people to set up my car since the dealer hadn't done it.

    Yep, lazy dealer did not do it. So I called and did it myself. Still no FOB tags. May check with another dealer and see if I can get two for the FOBs.


    Still looking for the button. Mine says intelligent parking assist IPA.

    Continuing saga on the Mats etc. OK, the business manger called me and said $299 was standard pricing for the mats. So I called the local dealer and they said 136 total out the door with no discounts. He said the discount I got for the car included all the options as a purchase. Did not have that conversation at all at anytime.
    Moral of this story is walk away if you are in a hurry and cannot take time to go over the deal in detail with a witness on your side.

    Great car and would do it Again but not when I was late for an appointment and the closer kept delaying the paperwork for a cash deal.
    Also he kept my wife on another conversation while I was signing paperwork and he knew I was late for an appointment. No fool like an old fool. LOL Still may have been a great deal. But could have been better. Maybe! Who would ever know for sure.


    Got an Email from the salesman and he said the safety connect FOB tags are in the manual. I do not see them.



    Merged...



    Thinking a 40 pound cat would do it.

    UPDATE

    Wow the extended real Toyota warranties have gone up. Beginning to think this is a waste of money.

    This warranty is 100 Percent Toyota Factory warranty from Toyota and honored by all Toyota Dealer service centers including California, Florida and all the USA and Canada

    I do NOT offer any 3rd party or aftermarket at all.

    8 YEARS 125,000 MILES $2,070.00


    This warranty is directly from Toyota and any warranty work will need to be done at your Toyota dealer or any Toyota dealer in your state or any state in the USA or Canada

    Continuing saga with the dealer and phenomenal MPG. Corporate Toyota has given the dealer until 7 April to call me with the resolutions.
    The tag lien for a cash deal has me concerned since I was not told anything about a lien on the title. Very poor communications from the dealer. Being 7.5 hours away does not help.
    My MPG is staying around 67-75 around my area. Lower with rain, weight, and high speeds. I am sure mountainous terrain would kill the MPG. But I have always got better MPG than others in this forum. 60-64 with my two 3's.
    Driving hybrids since 2003.

    Updated title issues and odds and ends.

    Checking dealer on the remote operation of windows with the FOB. News at 1000.

    update 37

    I didn't know what you meant by pink tag frame but then I saw your pic of your rear end. Why don't you remove that?

    Next project! Wish I would have caught them doing it. ARGH!
    Since you have a red one it will look nice on your car/:LOL:

    BTW/what color is your interior? Was considering buying another in red.
    Also, what tires came with yours and have your figured out the side sensors and their functionality? Front and back work fine. Curious!

    Nah, I got a black dealer plate that I considered removing but I left it for now.

    Mine is black interior. The tires are 17" ecopia tires.

    as for the side sensors, they just tell you that you are getting too close although their too close has a larger buffer than my too close :) I've had them go off when parking a few times.

    I remove dealer tag frames and dealer stickers forthwith.... Ie. I ask the detailing crew to remove or I do it my self as soon as I get home on all my cars.

    Who doesn't like a clean look and besides, are they paying you for the free advertising!!

    And PINK!!! Lol. My 8 year old would love it. lol.

    Which dealership is flaunting those may I ask!? Def. an attention getter...

    :p:);):LOL:(y)

    Seriously though, I'm loving the silver. Congrats.

    Agreed. I carried a screw driver with me when I bought my car. I removed the dealer paper plates before I even got home. ;)

    Can't believe car dealers have no common sense. Pink tag frames. Maybe on a pink Cadillac. They actually paid money for that crap.

    Update: ordering a second Prius today.

    Yes, and the policy was to ask before installing on customer's existing car.

    Added SAPGS
    The Simple Advanced Parking Guidance System automatically operates the steering wheel to provide support when backing into an area near a target parking spot, and when departing from a parallel parking spot.

    Vote for RED.

    Yep, been neutered twice but my eyes still work.:LOL::ROFLMAO:

    My special order RED was a real long special order so I may pick up a white one next weekend for the stable.

    Selling my 2009 or trade it. Really don't care either way as you can't take it with you.
    Can't seem to edit my first post.

    Cannot delete my pictures or edit my first post.:mad:

    Fraternal twins. Same mother different fathers.

    Yes, I bought a second 2016 Four Touring. Since I can no longer edit my first thread I will start this one.
