    I don't know what setting changed, but for several weeks now, I haven't been able to get my navigation system to keep using the full screen. After a minute or so, it drops into a split-screen mode in which the right half is devoted to audio, which is incredibly stupid because all it is doing is wasting half the screen to tell me I have the audio off.

    It did not do this before.

    I can't find a setting to make the "home" screen full-screen NAV.

    I don't really care if the "home" screen is full screen NAV or 50/50 NAV/audio, but when I choose NAV I want it to keep using the full screen for NAV until I tell it to stop.

    Do you use Entune? Could it be returning to the audio screen at some point?

    I also have a Four Touring; I don't use Entune. My map stays full screen until I change it.

    On mine you just touch the tab on the split and it returns to full screen and remains there until I touch the tab again to re-open it.

    No, I don't use Entune.
    Yeah, that's the way mine used to work.

    On my 2016 Prius v Three the setting is in Apps > Setup > General...

    "Auto Change to Home Screen" either checked or not checked depending on what you want. I have mine not checked so the Nav display stays full screen once I tap on it.

    OK, I'll look for that.

    (Later) Yeah, "Auto Change to Home Screen" was checked. I'm pretty sure neither my wife nor I changed it since, we didn't even know it was there. Thanks. I haven't had a chance to test it yet but I'm sure that's it.

    It's possible that the setting was somehow accidentally changed when the dealer had it in to apply the parking-assistance update.

    Good...hope that was it. I normally keep my home screen in two panel mode, e.g. Weather and Nav. I use full screen Nav on long road trips.

    Mostly we love our 2016 Prius, but the NAV is a sore spot. It sucks so badly I'd just go on using our little suction-cup Garmin except that there is literally no place to put it.

    The NAV has really been a disappointment, and, in particular, the quality of the database sucks. On our last trip, it said it knew where a specific KOA campground was, and it guided us into a suburban neighborhood and took us to the front of someone's house and said we "had arrived." The campground was actually five miles away. Looking for a restaurant in St. Cloud, MN, in a neighborhood with mostly fast food, it listed what it said was a restaurant named "Abda Salad," and we believed it, and it led us into an apartment complex with no restaurants of any kind. I was strongly tempted to go into the building just to confirm our guess that it was actually somebody's name.

    That was it. Confirmed. Thank you. Only mystery now is how the setting got changed.
