Default I just bought a '07 Camry Hybrid!

Yeah, I traded in my '05 SCION XA, and got a loaded '07 Camry Hybrid.

And! I tried out the 'volume' mod (you know, to get to the override screen), and it WORKED! YES!

So at least on the '07 Camry Hybrid, I can still hit the override, and have the functions just like in my '05 Prius. That made my night, when I found that out.

I will post pics later. I really love the car.

Is the screen like the Prius 2006, or closer to the 2004-2005? If the former, then maybe a backdoor is still available in the 2006 Prius, but was changed to evade us.

2006, for sure. Very pretty. I will try to get a screen shot today.

And I did. What follows is a series of shots, that my brother took while I drove. You can see that I have the override screen, and what happens when you hit it, and *BONUS FEATURE* (that is not in my '05 PRIUS), is you can now dial out a phone call, after you hit the override! How cool is that? (Just look at the shots from the bottom up; too tired to fix the order)

And here is the shot of the number pad, while the car is moving, and also of what lies behind the screen...It's where you put the map DVD in.

Definitely same screen resolution, but obviously the function behind the screen graphics is different, since your climate control is a separate panel.

But still, I would guess there's a way in on the Prius. We just have to find it.

sweeet.. love the tint, I'm not to excited about the wheels, but hey, whatever makes you happy!

Congrats!

I just saw my first Camry Hybrid on the road. It was a Titanium Silver. Too bad we don't get the MFD here... no nav option.

Anybody?

I can't see any photos in any of TJ's posts. This has happened before with other poeple's posts supposedly includ'g photos, but I just figured the posters forgot to add them in. It's not the same in this case because Dan & Tideland both make comments about the photos.

What am I doing wrong?

Guess what?

I guess I must be "logged in" to see all those photos I've been missing. All I did was log in to ask my question, & when I clicked "submit" up popped the thread with all of TJ's photos. Nice pix, TJ !!!
