I hate the Prius GPS as well. I am in the Northeast, traveling mostly throughout NJ, PA, and NY. My problem is never the machine not finding the address, it's the route it takes me to get there. It NEVER wants me to take toll roads, even if it means driving an extra 10, 20, or more miles per trip. It's absurd. Any advice? Also, I pay for the XM Traffic service and I have yet to even see it working. I know it's activated but I'm not sure if it's really doing anything beyond that. Besides that, I would trade nothing for my Prius (except a newer and nicer Prius)! Thanks in advance...this forum is great, you guys rock.
