New to forum With a few questions. Just picked up a 2013 standard five door previous level V. They have changed the navigation system since my last prius. Does the newest system auto zoom as u reach turns, exits etc. mine stays in whatever level of zoom that was manually selected? Also when starting car at night the head lights come on automatically, dash lights dim but map screen stays in day mode even though auto is selected!! Car is two weeks old - seems like they hid a Kia under a Toyota body. Any help would be appreciated. Have been to dealer twice with no luck. One more try and lemon law activated 馃槙馃槙馃槙

bradysplace, 2013 navigation sucks! Very disappointed. Want my 2010 back! Also have a prius 5. Didn't opt for the fancy $3000 upgrade . guess we are being punished.

This is PERSACTLY why I got a two model Prius V. My Garmin has free lifetime updates and is easy to use, not to mention right in my line of sight, where it belongs.

I had the cord hardwired and it comes out by the driver's small triangular side window, where I attatch the Garmin mount.

I am modding my V the way I want and saving lots of money over a five model yet getting a car that will go faster and handle better than any five model Prius V. Really, who needs radar nannys front and back?
Sun roofs in 'Vegas? NOT!
Hot Pleather seats in 'Vegas summers? Never.

But body stiffeners, light ENKEI RPF1 wheels and a cold air intake make a very nice handling car that is a bit faster too. And aftermarked Prius V specific LED fog lights are better than the five model's fogs.

Modding can be fun and save money over top of the line models.

GPS in the five model 2013 Prius is not significantly better than the one in the 2004 I traded in. I would not have gotten it, but I wanted other parts of the five option package. I would prefer the Garmin I bought for when I rent a car after flying somewhere (or driving the 2004 with its outdated GPS). I got a good deal on it with free forever updates. The one on the Prius added a lot to the price, I'm sure, and the charge for updates is outrageous.

Can someone please tell me how to get it to stop asking if I want to reroute around traffic congestion? I'd like to be able to request that, but not be asked at 1-5 minute intervals.
