It's the voice recognizition button.

Push the button, wait for the beep, and say "I'm Hungry" out loud.

With a lot of luck, you'll hear "The System Is Showing Restaurant Icon's"
With a little luck, you'll hear "This command is available only on Map Screen"
With no luck, you'll hear "Turning Audio System Off"

For some reason saying "Masturbation" causes the map to change from UP = North configuration to UP = Current Car Direction :)

LOL! You'll be saying it yourself the next time you say "Map Direction" and get "System Is Showing Gas Station Icons" :)

My latest annoyance... For me "EYE-TALIAN" works, but "EEE-TALIAN" doesn't, and for my wife "EEE-TALIAN" works, but "EYE-TALIAN" doesnt...

:roll: My complaint: I live in PRIME BAR-B-QUE country (TEXAS) and "Ernestine" (She's named after Lili Tomlin's telephone operator character) can't find a BBQ restaurant.! S I G H

Other than that, about 50-60% of the time Ernestine responds sensibly, the other times she serves as entertainment with her unique responses.

I think I'm up to about 80 percent accuracy, as I've been spending my commute hours learning to speak 'prius'

Got "Coffee House" on the first try last night :)
