    Howdy y'all,

    TL;DR: Pertinent data and questions are bolded. I'm wordy.

    Picked up my 2019 Prius last night (just broke 100 miles this morning). It's the LE AWD with the 6" Entune system.

    I have never had a car with any sort of bells and whistles beyond sunroofs and, well, that's about as fancy as it got.

    I have two questions I haven't seen on the forum.

    The voice recognition will let me send a canned text message, which is great and all (though I'm not about to take my eyes off the road to know what they are). Using a straight Bluetooth device (BT to FM transmitter) in my old car it would I could use Siri and just say and send whatever (though it rarely came out exactly as I intended). Is this possible with the Entune system?

    Second question- is there a way to keep Apple Maps from hijacking my directions when I try to use Google Maps through the Entune system? They both try to say the directions at once and they end up muting each other.

    Thank you all kindly!
    Matt

    Holding the “off hook” button will activate Siri EyesFree.

    I can’t answer the second one so I’ll let someone else jump in.
