Default 2015 Prius Four tire pressure display?

The 2015 Prius has TPMS that alerts the driver to improper pressures,
but is there any way to display the individual tire pressures on our
Prius Four (as our Chrysler 300M did)?

What does your owner's manual say about the display and about the
technology that generates the display?

There is a picture in the Display Audio System Owner's Manual of a
display of the individual tire pressures, but I have not discovered how
to access it. The Owner's Manuals are "generic," covering vehicles with
every different trim level and option package, and with the descriptions
of so many features marked as "if equipped."

yeah, that sucks.

It could be that the car technically knows about the state of each
individual tire, but your trim level doesn't allow you to see it.

It could also be that the your car doesn't use individual sensors, but
instead uses the ABS sensors to sense a difference in rotational speed
to determine simply that there's a difference in tire pressure. In
that case, there's no direct pressure measurement used and therefore no
direct tire pressure measurement is available.

Now I have confirmed, as I read in an on-line forum, that the Display
Audio System Owner's Manual is not even specifically for the Prius, so
it may be that some more up-market Toyota models can display individual
tire pressures, but not the Prius.
