Doesn't explain single mat incidents involving failure of retainer pins
or failure to secure the mat on the pins, which happens all the time at
commercial car washes.

There is a workaround for the navigation issue. I've done it and it
works fine. See: "http://www.navigationbypass.com/products/hybrid_nav.php" .

Kind of a pain to have to do the secret sequence every time you start
the car, but it's very fast once you know how to do it.

They neglect to tell you that you need to disconnect power from the
navigation system (yank the fuse) for a minute so it will reset and
reboot from the new DVD.

There's also a way to bypass the speed sensor for _only_ the sound
portion so you can change tunes and dial via bluetooth.

This is one of the most moronic things Toyota's ever done.  The LEAST
they could do is turn off the block if someone's sitting in the
passenger seat or allow a "I'm old enough to decide on my own so stfu"

Seems rather silly to cause someone to want to pick up their
phone/blackberry and dial rather than pick a number from a list on the
nav screen.

Thank goodness I bought the standard Prius model!! My handheld GPS works
just fine and doesnt cost an arm or leg to update either..

The easiest way to place a call from the 2010 equipped with the navigation
system is by voice command when a Bluetooth command phone is connected.
