My friend and I put amps and a computer into his Prius, without any problems. The current to the 12v system is provided by a 100 amp DC-DC converter so that the engine does not need to run in order for the accessories to stay powered and the battery charged, like in a normal car. This eventually uses up power from the traction battery, but regen and charging puts power back into the traction battery.
I was really disappointed to find that there was no XM radio available in the RX400. Then I found out that XM is no longer free of advertising, so I don't miss it that much. I wonder if anyone has done a direct connect of an Apple iPod to the system. The wireless systems are NO GOOD.
As far as I know, there are not any solutions available yet for an iPod. I am using a cassette adapter in my HH until something comes on the market. The sound quality is way better going through the tape player than an FM transmitter.
I have and XM Radio system in my 400H. My son put it in for Fathers Day. I was also disappointed that it wasn't pre-wired for XM. For all the time it took to get to market, they could have done that. It isn't a pretty set up, He did a good job hiding the attenna wire. I have a velcro patch by the shift console. I was using the FM adapter, but the there are too many FM stations in the Washington, DC area so I have gone to the tape adapter. I have the Roady 2. I will brinbg it in the house and overall I am pleased with the set up.
