    Just get in your truck and push the entire Assembly up. Then while holding it in position move mirror only so that it is usable. Mine is almost at the ceiling

    This ya neither tip nor trick. I was out wasting time on a Sunday. Best day to cruise a dealership with no hassling sales people. Happened to notice this awesome green TRDPRO Tacoma.
    It had the markings under the headlamps.
    It also had the forward camera mounted in the grille. Anyone know if this is standard or optional equipment on the new trucks or maybe just the Pro?

    Stock AF. My 68 Bronco and 2000 2.5RS get the mods.
    3rd gens get an optional power lock and the oem kit is a cheap and easy installation. I'm planning to add the popper to compliment the power lock. It's a clean kit, I'll link it if I can find it easily.

    Trd OR led headlights have something else, a cornering light or something in its place, but those are stock LED headlights on trd pro. (That have the trd/pro script.)

    The forward camera may be that new feature that shows all around the truck on the radio screen. I think they call it panoramic view.

    I’m not sure it’s been mentioned or not but if you swipe the door handle where those two bars are, the truck will lock. Basically reverse of the truck unlocking when you touch the handle.

    I've been trying this since I saw this post and sure enough, a swipe is far more effective than just placing your fingers on it.

    Just found this, adjusted it, and now one minor complaint I had is gone. Thanks!

    Markings are Pro only.

    Camera is part of the Multi Terrain Monitor (MTM) available on the Pro and OR with Adv Tech package. The Sport can get the Panoramic View Monitor. I don't know the specifications of the PVM.

    Wasn't sure if your question was tied into the headlights (even possible implication of variants for other trims) as well and it was easy enough to simply cover that in the post. Apologies if any offense was taken.

    This is new to me and I do not know if this shows up as a response to someone else or as a separate question, which I do have a question and am wondering if anyone else knows something about this. It's about Entune, on the dash, if I plug in the USB with file folders by artist name and in each file folder several mp3 songs, on the display screen it only shows the names of all the songs in huge long lists, not the file folders. Is this normal or is there an adjustment to have it show file folders, to select by folder, then play songs within the folders?

    I had a Subaru Forester and that used to show me file folders by name and then once picking a folder, by name, it would let me play tracks only in that folder, not everything all listed hundreds of songs long w/o organized by file folder, like on the Entune radio. That is why I ask, because the Tacoma is only at 302 miles new still and I set up the USB drives by folder names because of the previous vehicle.

    I looked for adjustments on the menu system but have not found anything or in the instruction manual.

    Welcome to the forum from Eastern North Carolina.

    The information IS in the manual, but well buried.

    Maybe this will help. :fingerscrossed:

    I share your pain.

    All my music is organized by folders as well, and when I first found that Entune had no idea what to do with a folder, it was very frustrating. I eventually downloaded the 'Mp3tag' app, and it allowed me to change/organize each songs 'tags' so that my music now sorts in a way that I can live with, given Entune's limitations. It is a tedious process, but it worked for me.

    Good luck, and welcome to TacomaWorld............................Frank
