    I would like to know this as well!

    Also, does the Nav unlock work to unlock the Bluetooth phone for a non-NAV car?

    Does anyone know how to determine correct Type when in diagnostic mode?

    Whoever discovered the disable reverse beep trick deserves to win the noble prize.

    I couldn't find a video of showing the reverse beep disable on youtube, but lots of videos complaining about it! I made one. If you think it is useful, feel free to add this link to the first page. Some people (like me!) learn best by watching.

    does anyone know of a soft hack to disable the FM text messges while driving lock-out? I have a base model 06 Prius. I find this "feature" to be ridiculous, the information still scrolls through the station soft buttons in the default radio screen and is even more distracting and difficult to read than it would be in the MSG full screen.

    +1 thanks for the disable beep. Toyota has engineered our Prius super well, but that is one they slipped up on: beep should have been on the OUTSIDE, not INSIDE.

    Hello everyone!
    Can a used key fob (bought on ebay) be added as a second spare key or just a brand NEW key fob will work?
    I have programmed transponder (silver logo fob) successfully, but remote lock-unlock procedure has failed. ( Prius'08 with SKS)
    thank you.

    Only a brand new key fob will work.

    Unable to get the diagnostic screen for the procedure to enable nav while driving.

    I hit Menu, Volume, tap upper/lower left twice as instructed, but do not get diagnostic screen. What's odd is that I used to be able to do this sometime in the past.

    I have a 2005 Prius with an updated map DVD. I recently had some work done where the multifunction display and radio were removed and replaced in the dash, but they are working fine now.

    I use hit the upper left button (Display), then touch the screen tap upper/lower three times (each= upper, lower, upper, lower, upper, lower) that takes me to the diagnostic screen on my 2009 Touring.

    on the 04 prius, is there a way to automatically lock all doors when in drive mode and automatically unlock all doors when park is pressed? I'd say automatically locking all doors when in drive and in motion is more important but if both is possible then great. thanks!

    I disabled the reverse beep on my 2007 Prius using the instructions from the video posted by "Nutmeg". Worked first try, no snags.

    Very cool because I found the reverse beep to be very annoying.

    Is there a hack that will give the functionality that Lockpick 3 as posted by another poster here? I'd like to be able to use the video monitor screen to play videos from my iPhone/iPad, but don't really want to pay $230 to do it!

    Any way to do this? Thanks.

    Is there any way to charge the HV battery by the engine?

    Yes. Put the car in ready mode and D, and with your left foot firmly on the brake apply your right foot on the accelerator. You will see this charges the HV battery>

    Hi all, I can't get this to work on my '04. I get to the 'shift into reverse and back into park...' step, but after doing that, there is no " -b" on my display.

    I've tied varying the timings a little. And I have assumed that I should be using the shifter to get into reverse (whilst pressing down the brake) and then shifting back to neutral and pressing the park button (whithout pressing down on the brake).

    Does anyone have any tips?

    Forgot to say, at the 'power on the car' step, I have tried both just pressing the start button, pressing it twice to turn on systems, and also full starting it with the brake depressed.

    This does not work with a UK Prius. You cannot remove the beep for reverse or the seatbelts.
