[ Music ] ^M00:00:08 >> Hello, green car lovers. Brian Cooley here with a quick how to one entering a navigation destination in your new 2010 Prius or similar Toyota head units. It's pretty straightforward because it starts with the destination button. I like when they label it clearly. So start there. And then you've got your choices of ways to enter addresses, usually the most common, you hit that. Notice, we have a touchscreen with large buttons. Now, a quirk in this system is if I go through city first, and then street, it tends to take you to just the street without giving you an easy way to enter the address. So start with street address, even though that's not really intuitive to me, then it asks you for the street name. Response time on this thing can be pretty sluggish, so don't get ahead of it and keep pushing buttons. It may just be catching up with you. It's not the fastest system in the world, to say the least. And there's my location. Press that button to get the navigation actually started. It doesn't default. You do have multi-route choices here. If you press the three routes. For a longer trip, these will mean different mileages versus speeds, so different kinds of roads you can take. And it describes them as quick, alternative, and short. And another okay; we're off to the races. And you've got your usual indications on the screen of where you're going, where you're starting, ETA, and the granularity of your view. Now, if you want to do a multiple waypoint, you hit that route button there on the bottom, and you can add a destination. In this case, I'll do a point of interest, let's say, a category, "along my route" or "near where I am right now" are usually my two choices that I usually go to the most. Let's say I need gasoline right away, so "near where I am." There's gasoline under "auto," which is a little odd. I think gasoline's a big enough category to have it's own top-level label, but I guess not. Choose your brand. And off we go. Notice this is a location-based system. It's not gonna feed in fuel prices, for example. And here's where you sort your destinations. Do you want that gas station to be before or after the one you've already got in there? I want it before because I need gasoline right now. Now, to stop your navigation because you don't want to go there anymore or whatever reason, hit the destination button, go to delete destination, and here's where you can knock those all by hitting select all, delete. And that'll cancel the whole thing, which is handy when you decide you're not gonna somewhere after all, and you want the damn thing to shut up and stop telling you where to go. So those are your basic steps on how your most typically going to use the navigation system in a 2010 Prius, or a similar Toyota model with this particular center stack. ^M00:02:32 [ Music ]
