    I have a 2022 Prius Prime and I am trying to learn about it and all the sounds it makes. Every now and again I hear what I would describe as a TaDaaa sound, as if some goal has been achieved. Can someone tell me what this is?

    If the noise is made with beeps it may be the lane detection safety thing. On my 21 sometimes when the road angles and bends it’ll think I’m on course to hit something. See if a small icon lights up on your cluster and blinks momentarily next time it happens.

    I think I get that sound when I connect Apple Car Play, but I’ll have to check to be sure.

    Not sure of the sound you're talking about without hearing it. Congrats on your new PP. Out of curiosity, does any sound emit when you engage reverse? Like in this video.

    There is no beeping but there is the whine which the manual says is the VPNS that engages when speed is < 22 mph (35KPH)

    I think I remember seeing a navigation setting to play that sound when a certain address is reached.
