    I thought the Flux Capacitor took up the space reserved for the spare tire

    I have to say, that is one of my favorite features. Use it everyday, it's amazing in traffic over 20mph.

    Getting back to the topic of the GreenCharge app...
    It has a button for it, but I haven't tried it. I suspect it might not work b/c the remote A/C start didn't seem to work and...
    Technically yes, it provides the control via a button when the car is charging, but it doesn't actually seem to do anything. I was really hoping it would work b/c I was looking for a way to stop charging with the Prius plugged in.

    I do have an advanced model but there's not much to debug with so few options. The app simply won't connect.

    Radar Cruise control, safety connect, remote apps, HDD Nav unit, HUD, etc, all add weight and cost and complexity to the car. While I would have loved to have had all the features of the Advanced package, the price to get them was too steep for me, so I passed this time around. The car still has a lot of advanced technology, it just doesn't have as much as you would like. Or at least at the price you were willing to pay.

    I agree with devprius. I really didn't see the need for radar cruise.

    Oh, there's a definite use for it. Our 2004 Sienna minivan came with radar cruise control. We use it a lot, especially when driving between SF and LA via I-5. It's been a great tool. I would've love to have gotten the PiP with it (or any new car for that matter), but couldn't justify the cost this time around. Maybe next time around.

    Hah, because Apple users are conformists and like to pay money to be cool like others. How many times has your Iphone owning friend showed you some app he just paid $4.99 and you turned around and showed him the same app on Google play for free?
