Prius Navigation

There are few of us that can find our way around a city without GPS, gone are the days of the Rand McNally map book that you kept in your car.  Getting  accurate directions from a stranger is a thing of the past. Many of you would not understand map coordinates or latitude or longitude.

Map

If you were ever in Scouts reading a map was required to advance in rank. To a youth becoming an Eagle Scout was the ultimate, it was better than getting stars on your forehead in Catholic school.

Satellite technology has changed the world that we live in and for the geographically challenged individual it’s given them direction.

Navigation is one of the most popular options when purchasing a new car. The Navigation system of today is like the air conditioning option of yesterday, you must have it.

The Navigation system in the 2015 Toyota Prius is a very easy system to use, Toyota of El Cajon has produced a video that shows you the basics of the 2015 Prius Navigation system please take a look at the video.

It’s no secret that Americans have a long fascination with the internal combustion engine and many of us were reluctant to embrace the hybrid technology, but the Toyota Prius has set the standard and has been embraced by the public.  Whenever new technology reaches the masses there is a long list of skeptics that will wait a few years before purchasing, the Toyota Prius is now on the short list.

Using data from over 36,000 Toyota Prius hybrids, Consumer Reports has given the Toyota Prius high marks for reliability.  Prius owners also experience low ownership cost due to few repairs.

One of the questions that potential Prius buyers raised was the longevity of the battery, skeptics worried about the length of the battery life and its cost to replace it.

It is not uncommon to find Prius owners with over 200,000 miles on their cars, that are using the same original battery.  Many Prius-driving Taxi drivers have logged over 200,000 miles on their cars and reported no decline in vehicle performance.
