I have a 2002 with the factory Navigation. I'd like to get the longitude and latitude from it, but I have not been able to figure out how.

Anybody done this?

Thanks,
Steve

I want to be able to give my coordinates to Scotty so that he can beam me up out of traffic, and just beam me back down to my destination.

:D

There is an option to enter longitude and lattitude coordinates. I used it once when I went hiking and only got the coordinates from the website, and no street address. Unfortunately, I don't remember the exact steps to get to that screen.

OK I found one way, using the diagnostic function, but since the only way out of that mode is to shut the car off, it's less than ideal...

I only have access to a 2004 Prius Navigation Owner's manual. you can get the current latitude/longitude by going to the Emergency switch on the Destination screen, you can input a destination by Coordinates on the Destination screen, and you can find your current latitude/longitude by changing the screen configuration to Compass mode (as opposed to single map, dual map, turn list screen, etc.)

I should add that I was able to get into the long/lat feature, but I am unable to repeat the process to you, because I was just goofing off and "exploring".

Which may be the best way to learn. Someday when it's not so damned scaldingly hot here in Florida, I'll take some time to try to figure out the process step-by-step.

I think it involves pressing the lock button on the hatch, turning on the passenger vanity mirror light and shifting into B while rolling backwards at 88 mph; then holding down the power button for exactly 1.21 seconds. * Either that, or it causes the high beams to flash continuously whenever you're in neutral - I forget which. 8)

(*humor - don't try this at home, boys and girls)
