2012 Prius V - GREAT vehicle - GPS terrible
By rickity1 on
Vehicle
2012 Toyota Prius v Five 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
The 2012 Prius V is an outstanding vehicle ... lots of cargo space, 50 mpg [CAN gal] [5.2 l/100km] .. great audio system, heated seats - seriously, a GREAT vehicle. So - why would Toyota put such a lame GPS system into such a great vehicle? Seriously - why? I have a $150 Garmin GPS that is twice as good and that I will use over the Prius GPS every time. The interface is awkward; the software usually does not "speak" street names and when it does it mispronounces them; it frequently is unable to find locations or POIs that are there but it cannot discover in its data listings .... Toyota - PLEASE reconsider [replace] the GPS system in this wonderful vehicle. And PLEASE replace mine!
Favorite Features
Everything but GPS system
Suggested Improvements
Fix the GPS system and replace the one in my new [Oct/2012] Prius V - PLEASE!

I agree, the GPS is horrendous. I had a 2010 Prius and the GPS was fine--how could the "upgraded" GPS be so inferior to the older version? I can't see the street names, there's no compass in the car which is ridiculous, and the voice software rarely recognizes an address. It's a terrible waste of money!
