That photo shows a simplified version of what I received in early 2004.
Coastal sent it to a meeting of a newly-forming Prius club as a
giveaway, and I was the winner.

Mine has four green LEDs to show state of braking, plus one red LED that
indicates engine running. It may well have been a prototype leading to
the current-generation device.

The Coastal people are clever and highly inventive, but often announce
before the engineering is finished.

Coastal does now have such an item listed on their site for the '04-09,
but it's just a photo of a device like Ike described.  It says that it's
not yet in production.
