I assume that what you meant to say is that the dealership would NOT do it because it is a safety feature. In any case, it is really not that difficult to do it, and if it is distracting for you, I recommend you try it without. I now just make sure I LOOK at the display to see it got into reverse instead of LISTENING for the beeps.I66 Prius said:The dealership should turn it off for you. I requested the dealership to do it and they told be it was a safety feature and could do. What a bunch of crap.
