    I like the Nav and actually searched for that option. Having said that the best Nav I have ever had was in my Lexus RX. Funny same company and they are no where near the same.

    Lastly for all you complainers, try the Nav out in a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It makes the Toyota look AWESOME!

    And the problem with that is I can find no reference to "Show Map" in any of the manuals I was given. The Display Audio System Owner's Manual I have has only 5 pages for the Voice Command System Operation and it doesn't list available commands. It refers to "More Commands" and at the end of that list on the display I finally found "Show Map". I found a Voice Command System Operation manual online in the Owner's Resource section that lists a bunch of commands in Section 2, Natural Speech Information, but I think they are for the Type C (3) Premium Audio/Nav System and not the Type B (2) that is standard in the Four. It also shows a place to turn ON Advanced Voice Commands, but I can't find anywhere to do that. I now see what people are talking about when they complain about Toyota manuals.

    My next step will be to write down the commands on the display and start from there. Call So-And-So, Go Home, Enter Address, etc., work fine ad does Find Next Whatever, but what I'd really like to be able to do is find dining in a given city 50 miles down the road. With my Garmin I can set a city to search for POIs, I don't think I can do that with the Prius.

    I haven't played with Entune yet, but I assume I need my phone with me and the Entune app running on it to get the Traffic, Weather, Sports and Stock Market voice commands to work. It doesn't help that I'm trying to figure all this out in 110 degree heat without being unsafe or wasting gas sitting in my driveway with the AC running. Step 1 though is getting a list of commands for reference.

    I have the standard Display Audio system in my C Three and the navigation voice commands are in the navigation manual. But it's much easier to find things in the PDF manuals, as you can do a word search.

    See if this link works for the 2014 Voice Command manual; Show Map is definitely in there: Toyota 2014 Prius Navigation Owner's Manual (OM47858U)

    Yes, that is the online version where I found "Show Map" on page 278, but if you look at this link, Type B is the display system I have and it doesn't match anything in the online version.

    Unfortunately the guide lines are only available on the 7" Denso unit on the Prius. The 6.1" versions do not have them for the backup camera.
