Just got a new package 6 2004 Prius, ordered it in mid May.  Enjoying
it.
Some questions:  is there any way to turn off the reverse gear
beeping?

Also, is it possible to upload some of my own images to the touch
screen?  I'm rapidly tiring of the boring graphics....

Many thanks.

 1. Power on the car to READY.

 2. Using the Trip/ODO button, set the Trip/ODO display to ODO (not Trip
A or Trip B) If it is already set to ODO, you don't have to change it
and set it back.  If it is already on ODO, you can skip steps 3 and 4.

 3. Power off the car.

 4. Now power the car to READY (brake on). This is required so that step
6 works correctly.

 5. Within 6 seconds of powering on, press and hold the Trip/ODO button
for 10 seconds or more. If you miss this time window, go back to step 1.

 6. WHILE STILL HOLDING ODO *after* the 10 seconds, shift the "gear"
selector to R, then press the P button. Now release the Trip/ODO button.

 7. If the last step was successful, "b on" or "b off" should be
displayed in the location where the Trip Odometer or Odometer is
normally displayed. "b on" is beep on, and "b off" is beep off.

 8. Press Trip/ODO to toggle the mode.

 9. Now power the car off to exit the toggle mode.

 10. Power the car on to READY and confirm the reverse beep status by
shifting to R. The beep should not be audible if "b off" was selected,
and should be audible if "b on" was selected..


If you ever figure out how to do that, please let us know.

 Instructions for disabling reverse beep. Works only on US & Canadian models:


1. Power on the car to IG-ON or READY. IG-ON will do for this purpose.
2. Using the Trip/ODO button, set the Trip/ODO display to ODO (not Trip A
or Trip B)
3. Power off the car.
4. Now power the car to READY (brake on). This is required so that step 6
works correctly.
5. Within 6 seconds of powering on, press and hold the Trip/ODO button for
10 seconds or more.
6. WHILE STILL HOLDING ODO *after* the 10 seconds, shift the "gear"
selector from P to R, then back to P. Now release the Trip/ODO button.
7. If the last step was successful, "b on" or "b off" should be displayed
in the location where the Trip Odometer or Odometer is normally displayed.
"b on" is beep on, and "b off" is beep off.
8. Press Trip/ODO to toggle the mode.
9. Now power the car off to exit the toggle mode.
10. Power the car on to READY and confirm the reverse beep status by
shifting to R. The beep should not be audible if "b off" was selected, and
should be audible if "b on" was selected..

Note: The Repair manual page states that if the the 12v battery is
disconnected, the beep will reset to the default of on, and this procedure
will need to be performed again. The repair manual also isn't clear that
Trip/ODO should remain depressed while shifting.

Additional Note: The driver and passenger seatbelt reminder chime can be
disabled or enabled (respectively, defaults appear to be driver on and
passenger off) using similar steps. Instead of shifting from P to R to P in
step 6, simply buckle then unbuckle the appropriate seatbelt while
continuing to depress the Trip/ODO button.
