Just swapped my 2010 Prius t spirit for a 2012t-spirit model with touch and go plus naviagtion system. Head up display does not show navigation and the button to switch- on naviagtion in HUD is now missing. HUD still shows speed and hybrid info. I miss the naviagtion in HUD as have to take eyes off the road to follow the sat nav. Have other experienced the same.

Yes that's right - a disappointing "feature" of the 2012 Prius is that the HUD no longer shows navigation arrows. On the bright side, though you can now update the new Sat Nav, and put your music on a USB stick.... so not all that bad!

A great pity, as the navigation arrows are the only thing that makes the HUD anything other than a gimmick!

Absolutely agree it having navigation arrows in the HUD whilst keeping eyes on the road was a great safety feature so cannot understand Toyota rationale for this retrograde step.

I find the HUD really useful especially having the HSI displayed.
I really miss it when driving other cars.

The touch and go system now seems to standard across the Toyota range and (as with all mainstream satnavs) doesn't support the HUD. It would cost Toyota to have touch and go satnav modified to support the HUD and it is only the gen3 Prius that has the HUD (AFAIK) so it probably isn't cost effective.

Interesting. In Finnish Toyota Prius/Prius+ brochures it states that the navigation arrows on the HUD are visible on the Premium (the best) trim level. Others will only have the HUD with speed and some other info but no nav arrows.

Toyota brochures are not always correct. :(

Seems so. I called our local Toyota dealer out of interest and this feature is only on Prius+ it seems.

Normal Prius does not have this feature anymore it seems. I wonder why.

Maybe Prius+ does not have Touch and Go?
