Navigation systems and personal GPS are a handy accessory if you are travelling. The Toyota Prius features a touch-screen control panel in the centre of the dash that controls the stereo, provides battery and fuel economy information and has a built in navigation system. The navigation system has many powerful options that may seem complicated to use if you are unfamiliar with the controls. Setting a basic destination point, however, is a relatively straightforward and simple task that you can complete in just a few minutes.
- Skill level:
Press "DEST" on the right side of the GPS control panel. Press the "Address" button on the screen.
Press "City" on the screen then enter the name of the destination city using the letters on the touch screen. Press "OK."
Select the desired city from the list that appears.
Enter the name of the destination street using the letters on the touch screen. Press "OK." Note that you do not need to enter prefixes such as "South" or "S."
Select the desired street from the list that appears.
Enter the house or building number using the numbers on the touch screen. Press "OK."
Press the "Go to" button at the bottom of the screen when the map appears. Make changes to the route preferences, if you wish to do so, by pressing "Edit Route" then "Preferences."
This is optional. Press "OK" when you are finished making changes to the route preferences to start navigation.
