    I just used my 2006 pkg#6 on a rainy day and noticed that when you go in reverse and the rear view camera comes on I have rain drops blocking the view. If you look at where the camera is mounted any water that runs down the back door will make drops of water settle on the camera lens. I think if the camera was recessed alittle it wouldn't be a problem. Or else you need very mini wiper on the camera lens.

    So now we know what will be new for the 2007 prius !

    Try wiping a little RainX on the lens next time you do your windshield.

    Or you could just wipe off the lens before going for a ride if you know that it has been raining. Is this really a complaint? Compared to having useful items locked out while using the GPS while driving or not having power seats I just don't have sympathy for this one.

    Next time you go to your service rep ask him for the tiny "camwiperXS" they have them in the back. =)
