    That would be nice. I've wished for that myself. But, TS will not help you there.

    The anytime camera and head unit override mods are great though. With the switch near the shifter, it is effortless to see what I want to.

    Here are some screen shots of the Techstream options from a spread sheet I made in Nov 2019. (xlsx spreadsheet attached)
    The blue highlighted were "as found" conditions when I opened each section.
    They may/may not be defaults as some of them are settable via the Entune head unit which I had already done before I got TS.
    The left column also has "orangish" wording in parenthesis. This means they are also customizable in the Entune head unit.
    The last entries at the bottom did not have any options for my truck. So, I cannot explain what some of those categories may have in them.
    This may give some of those on the fence some idea about what options they MAY see.
    Other models/years/packages may be different. YMMV.
    Perform at your own risk.

    Close techstream, turn off wifi, reopen it. Use offline mode when prompted. It try’s to phone home when online.

    A few people have version 14 in their signature in this thread if I remember correctly. If you are on a mobile device you have to turn it landscape to view signatures, or request the desktop site.

    See quoted above, courtesy of @tonered. I think it works fine for 2020 models.

    I have confirmed that the shared TS V14 will not allow a connection for Customizations and such on 2021s. I did link TS V15 in the ECU Update thread, but we need to jump through some hoops to get an activation key.

    This is exactly why I am trying to get 15.3xx. Completely missed it in the OP over there, thank you! See how the mhhauto request for activation goes after I manage to get an account.

    It goes very well. It is a good forum. Just follow the instructions that they tell you.

    Also, search out a thread with that version number in the title.

    :cheers:

    Thank you, I found that thread after I posted the comment above a few hours ago. Sent off an email asking for permission to join the forum then also.

    I have joined a lot of forums in my day, but never had to email anyone first just to join before :D

    Just wait. It is more fun than that.

    They ask for a donation and you have to intro yourself and throw some reputation points around.

    Still, it is worthwhile and there is a lot of data there that I have seen, but not fully explored yet.

    I have a 2013 tacoma, reg cab, 2.7L, bench seat thats having issues with I believe the seat occupancy sensor. I just want to calibrate that and see any other issues that may be giving me the airbag light and passenger seat seatbelt light. Carista does not support this so I need techstream. However it seems the newer versions just support newer cars. Mine is old. I tried buying the dongle on the first page but it says out of stock. Can anyone help point me to a known good solution (dongle and software) to be able to read (and I assume write to calibrate the seat sensor)? I have read through 10 pages and its all over the place. Thank you in advance.

    Look for version 12. That should support the 2nd gens.

    As far as calibrating the sensor, I'm not sure if there is any calibration to be done. The sensor may be intermittent or faulty. You should be able to see the sensor readings in TS, but it may be off/on and not analog.

    Any idea on what hardware I need? I have a bluetooth dongle now but I assume techstream wants a particular adapter. Also is there a place v12 can be found with whatever keys, etc... are needed?

    The generally recommended adapter is the Tactrix Openport 2.0. Other cheap USB adapters from Ebay or Amazon may work, but they are hit or miss. For customizations and monitoring they will probably be fine, but if you ever need to do ECU updates I wouldn't recommend them.
