Hi again everyone.

No. I havn't even test driven one yet.

Can anyone tell me weather any of the audio options plays cd's full of MP3
files? How about the DVD Navigation system. Can I fill a DVD with MP3 files
and access them too? I know. I sound like I am fixated on MP3's. I am. It's
an addiction. There should be a 12 step program. But I have over 30 Gig of
MP3's and I should never have to listen to another commercial or Britney
Spears song the rest of my life.

Life is too short to post at the bottom.

Neither audio system in the Prius can handle MP3 formatted CD media.  
However, there is a company that makes an adaptor that lets you connect
an iPod to the system, and control it from the audio-system controls,
including the steering-wheel controls.

A lower cost option is to buy a Walkman-type MP3 player with car
adapters, such as the Sony D-NE306CK.

 I have had some trouble with the adaptors that convert the earphone signal
into FM radio waves that can be tuned in by the car stereo. My current
interface of choice is a cassette adaptor. But I doubt that any of the stock
audio options offer a cassette player. Am I correct?

That is correct; only the upgraded audio system with the JBL speakers
have a cassette deck.
