2004 Toyota Prius: A Little Old School, a Little New

October 25, 2010

At some point in our Prius's history, somebody had the foresight to load our office as "Home" in the now-aged navigation system. A couple interesting things happened when I zoomed in on the POI icon.

First of all, it's still cool that some navigation systems show building shapes. I zoomed in further to see what else I could see and discovered something else.

The office complex we call home was once called MGM Plaza. Problem is MGM sold the entire thing in 2001, predating the 2004 Prius by 3 years. I wonder how otherwise out-of-date the navi data is.
