Do a search and you'll get plenty of hits.

You can use just about any head unit you want... regardless of what you choose, you'll need an adapter to get it to work with the steering controls; the most popular solution it seems, called a swi-jack by a company called PAC. They retail for about $80, but I found mine on amazon for $36 bucks.

I'm running a Kenwood DNX 6160 and I couldn't be happier... It does everything I want, has the Garmin Nav engine built in, bluetooth, iPod adapter cable for seamless integration and control, and expandability for when I decide to update the system with some amps.

I used the Scosche dash kit and wiring harness for my install... again off amazon, I think it was all of $25 bucks and it fits and works great.

Does this radio being a flip down work when installed>? I worry about the fact the radio is recessed into the dash and maybe hindered when opening. Also... Can you add multiple waypoints/stops to this radio via sd card or something? I am in real estate and would like to optimize 30-45 stops all on one gps route.

I did the Pioneer X920, with this http://www.amazon.com/Metra-ASWC-Uni.../dp/B0039H2W66 for steering wheel control and then added the bluetooth buttons on the right to make the whole steering wheel work. Only issue I have is the the bluetooth buttons come from a 4runner, so the color is a little dim and off. I'm in Jax, PM me and I will let you look at the system price for head unit and all was around $700 with Amazon coupon and all install material.

I just bought the Pioneer AVIC-X920BT. The Crutchfield catalog indicates you can't use a flip-up screen in the 2011 Tacoma, although since the Tacoma's got a double-DIN opening you wouldn't need a flip-up anyway.

It's a fixed screen... it doesn't flip out, so no issues with clearance and what not. As for the waypoints, I have no idea... your best bet is to probably go to a car audio shop and play around with them all and see which, if any nav, will fit the bill for you.
