    We purchased a used 2011 Prius that did not have the navigation map DVD included. We use the GPS on our phones and I am not interested in spending money on the DVD. Is there any way to stop it from searching for the DVD? Most of the time, it gives us the roads we are on and that's good. The searching is becoming a problem as you can do nothing else on the screen while it searches.

    Also, is there a way to keep the screen on the audio rather than the map screen?

    Thanks!

    welcome!
    on mine, when i press the audio button, it stays on audio, but 2011 may be different, do you have a manual for the gps? maybe you can find a cheap old dvd on eBay to satisfy it's thirst for knowledge.:)

    I'm interested in knowing how to keep the audio screen on as well. When i hit the audio button it comes on but only for a few seconds then the map pops back up.

    Press the SETUP button, then "General" then "Auto Screen Change". The word to the right should be "off". Press "Save".

    Now when you exit to the MAP-VOICE screen then press AUDIO, it should remain on the audio screen.

    The owner's manuals (really, the owner's manuals and all the other little booklets that come in the glove compartment) are free to download from techinfo.toyota.com (you can find them in the Manuals search shown before the paywall).

    I like them better that way anyway ... the paper owner's manual takes up a lot of space in the glove box, and it's searchable when saved as a file on my phone. :)

    Holy cow...this auto change thing has annoyed me since I first got my Prius. I didn't know it was possible to change it. Thank you!
