    I've seen several folks with a screen on their gauges that show MPG. What years was/is that available? I've searched my owners manual - no joy.

    My truck - 2012 4x4 Long Bed. Nav screen with JBL. Other apps on screen are several music apps (I guess) - don't listen to music much. I've had this truck for about a month now.

    Actually, I'm referring to the one that comes with the Tacoma. I've seen gauge cluster with the 3rd gen, and even my owners manual talked about a button on the radio to push, but...there were a couple of different options of radios, and mine (I guess) was one that didn't have it.

    Regarding after-market - I've seen the scanguage, but not that ultraguage - these are both pretty cool. Thanks for sharing!

    Roger Roger........I has a ram mount off the pillar handle and a galaxy note 3 with a nice size screen. Works great & doubting scan gauge or ultragauge play music or take/make phone calls either or become a hot spot for internet access. Combo win............
