    Back in business. It's amazing what a couple units of blood will do for you. Big thanks to any of YFFs that donate blood!

    I had basically been living with the equivalent of altitude sickness over the past few weeks. When my doctor's office finally got the iron infusion scheduled my hemoglobin had dropped to 6.4. Took them 3 weeks to schedule the iron but they were able to get a blood transfusion within a day once they saw how bad things were. It's the second time my counts have been that low and hopefully the last.

    It's crazy how much better I feel. Hopefully my doctor can get more aggressive with the infusion schedule and keep me feeling like this long term.

    The JBL stereo broke (just a few months after the CPO warranty expired) so there will be stereo upgrades coming soon. Package should arrive next week.

    This is on my short list of things to do. Curious to see what you’re going to do.

    Here's a teaser. This'll plug into the back of the head unit. Nobody's shenanigans are safe anymore...well no one in front of me.

    Nice! I have been thinking about getting dash cam. I had a lady run into my work truck and try to say it was my fault back in February. The whole thing was caught by a city street cam so..... takes most of the BS out of the equation.

    Probably won't finish the install today but hope to at least get the headunit installed and maestro programmed.

    It's alive. Kenwood DNX996XR. It was a bitch to get everything to fit. I still have some trimming to do to fit the bezel on with the hazard button, clock, & airbag light.

    Need to see how to program what wheel is is what location. The tire that it is reporting low is the spare.0B9E989E-066F-4F42-A9E4-775FA36D09C9.jpg


    The backup camera has gridlines now...stock cam but the JBL system never displayed them.2C3EE571-4286-41B8-AAD5-4EEE06929059.jpg


    Messed around with AirPlay, navigation, and the settings a bit but it's going to take some time to figure everything out. I want to try to play a dvd and see if I need to ground the parking brake sensor wire before I wrap everything up.

    Have to pull it and move some stuff around. There isn't much room back there for the wiring harness. It is sitting a bit crooked at the moment because of whatever it's hung up on.

    4CB47CA6-6F87-4EE5-A8F3-5502535C8787.jpg

    Everything else is done. Ran the wiring for the dash cam and microphone up to the rear view mirror and have been working through the settings. There is a lot that this can do so it's going to take some time.

    I was able to get the button color to match the interior lights last night with a custom color setting and I've played with the sound settings (which makes me want to get an amp that'll run 2 channels and a sub and ditch the factory sub).

    I'm just figuring out how to navigate the songs on the USB drive. One usb plug is run to the factory location and I think I'm going to run the second to the coin tray on the right of the steering wheel (where the ebrake is in the manual).

    A few things I'd like to figure out are:
    - how to turn off automatic display on the dash cam (pops up automatically when I'm slowing at a stop sign/light or turning into a parking lot)
    - how to add a custom background image
    - if I can upload topo maps to the Garmin nav
    - if I can navigate using gps coordinates
    - can it auto connect apple play
    - if I can review dash cam videos on the headunit without pulling the sd card from the dash cam and putting it into the stereo (the dash cam is wired to it so it seems like this should work somehow)

    New to Taco World and yours is the first post I pulled up and I started with the first post. Quite an inspiring “read”! So glad your Fights going well! (From another survivor, just finished 2 year scan clean from throat cancer)... Love your attitude and loved reading about your build! I’m a 3 week owner of my first Tacoma and you’ve given me lots of ideas! I’m not the technician you are, but I love functional gadgets.. prolly gonna do a similar suspension and tires/wheels, and go crazy with all the led mods you made. Thanks for the tips. Fight on!!

    This video suggests you can review dashcam video on the unit. I'm trying to figure out if this unit will display navigation info in my dash display on my 2017.
