The 2010 cruise control differs from the 2005 cruise control.  The good news
is that it remembers it's setting even when you come to a complete stop and
resumes once you are above about 25 mph.  The bad news is that, in the ECO
mode at least, it maintains the set speed +/- about 3 mph on roads with
small hills.

When the 2010 cruise is set the lever behaves just like the gas pedal.  Hold
it up and it accelerates constantly.  Hold it down and it starts charging
the traction battery to reduce speed more quickly.  Moving up or down, you
have to lead it a bit to arrive at the desired speed.  For example, if you
are at 45 and hold the lever up until you reach 55, releasing the lever at
that speed, you will end up cruising at 57 or 58.

Your 2005 cruise control did the same thing.

Same thing with the 04.

I missed it.  I don't believe the 2005's cruise would resume once a person
had dropped below about 25 mph.  Did I miss that too?

No, you didn't miss that part; it's one of the things I don't like about
the 04-09 cruise control.
