    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

    For #56, is this only if you have the Entune system? I upgraded to a Kenwood head unit which does not show any Toyota vehicle settings/customization options?

    Don't believe this was listed but may be helpful for some...

    The rear headrests in a Double Cab fold forward to improve your field of vision in the rear view mirror.

    The payload of the truck inside the drivers side door will tell you exactly how much junk you can fit in your trunk.

    I'll post this in here.....I suppose it is a trick :devil::

    (CNN) If you drive a Toyota, you might want to read on.

    Toyota is recalling nearly 700,000 Toyota and Lexus vehicles in the US because of issues with the fuel pumps. The pumps can stop operating, the company said, leading to engine failure.
    "If a vehicle stall occurs while driving at higher speeds, this could increase the risk of a crash," the company said.
    Toyota says it's investigating the issue. When it comes up with a solution, it'll notify owners by mail by mid-March.
    The vehicles under the recall are:
    • 2018-2019 Model Year Lexus LS 500, LC 500, RC 350, RC 300, GS 350, IS 300, ES 350, LX 570, GX 460, and RX 350
    • certain 2019 Model Year Lexus NX 300, RX 350L, and GS 300
    • certain 2018-2019 Model Year Toyota 4Runner, Camry, Highlander, Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Sienna, Tacoma, and Tundra
    • certain 2019 Model Year Toyota Avalon and Corolla

    Has anyone tried this?

    Lower All Windows Instantly: One of the more common hidden functions on many of today’s key fobs is the ability to roll down all the windows and open the sunroof at the same time by pressing a single button. It's handy, and it helps cool off the car on a hot summer day. It's not often labeled on the fob, though, so the owner needs to know the button sequence. On most cars that have the feature, it’s accomplished by pressing the unlock button on the key fob once, then pressing it again (within 10 seconds) and holding it down until all the windows are opened.

    Depending on your front license plate frame, and if you have the Pro grill mod with sensor - don't let snow and ice build on top of plate frame. It will block the the sensor and throw the light (collision warning off)

    I used to cruise Valley Parkway in the late 70's and early 80's until they shut it down. Grew up in Poway

    Downtown Escondido is a popular classic car cruising night now. Poway still has a small town feel.

    I'm just north of you, near Lawrence Welk.

    I couldn't even imagine how Valley Parkway would have been like in the 70s-80s.
