    Hi everyone,
    I have 2011 Prius 2 (basic). I was wondering if they sell after-market Navigation system that can fit in Prius ? If so, where can I get it ? Any pics of it.

    Thanks.

    Advent OE style aftermarket Navi is the best I have read and seen so far. It is $$$ (~$900) but it maintains the factory look, if thats what you are after. Even down to the button lights...matchs exactly to the toyota green light. I just ordered mine a few days ago and will post photo after install.

    I have the OttoNavi. Very happy with it. It also matches the OEM look very accurately.

    Here is a picture of it installed in my 2010. It is running a custom WinCE app in the picture.

    Seckwielen,

    That looks awesome! I had seen those on eBay a couple of times but skimmed right over them. That looks VERY factory at a fraction of what people are asking for even used OEM non-Navi units from a 2012+. That thing is definitely on my "to do" list now. Thanks!

    Can't really tell from the picture but the dash texture matches perfectly with radio texture.

    Also. If you look a Bulle's thread on modifying the OttoNavi Ottonavi HU: How to customize (a bit) the UI | PriusChat there is a custom skin app. You can literally design your own screen layouts. Radio. Mp3. DVD. Aux. Menus. Etc.

    This is the American version of the RoadRover.

    $1000 and change for the HU and adapters and not to hard if that's all you want. My "system" was more involved and more expensive. Remember, I have a level II Prius, not level III.

    The OttoNavi is $599-$749 depending on options.

    I called Ottonavi and received a great open box deal. THe OttoNavi comes with all the cables needed for installation. I never have opened the dash or looked at the wires in s prius, and I had the unit installed and looking great in less than a 1/2hr. The dash IS that easy to remove, and the cables ARE that easy to plug in.

    In all honesty, a $100 Garmin is far superior and the OP keeps the JBL sound system, if cost is the issue.

    So...on the ottonavi unit...where does one plug in an iPhone...or any phone for that matter? My 2011 Prius two doesn't have a USB port anywhere in the cabin...just an aux-in jack.

    Also, how we'll does the Bluetooth work on these units? What about use with an iPhone 5?

    I like this unit...on paper and its price point (and the fact that I can probably install it myself). The other unit I've been looking at is the Pioneer App Radio series...but that gets really pricy with all the special cables and pro installation...

    My ottonavi came with an iPhone/iPod cable. Plugs into the back of the unit. Has the old wide iPhone/iPod connector. Maybe they have the new style too.

    The one I have works great. Even controls the iPod/iPhone playlist from the steering wheel. The charging from that cable is also fantastic.

    The Bluetooth is very clear. And there is a remote mic that connects to the OttoNavi that you can place on the sun visor for better clarity for the Bluetooth.
