    I have a question about tip number 29 which is;


    1. If your iPhone message aren't showing up on your multimedia screen, go to Settings --> Bluetooth --> Toyota --> activate "ShowNotifications"

    2. How do you turn down the volume for this feature? It scares the crap out of me when it notifies me because of the volume. Thanks in advance.

    No. Some people actually have the means to use a firearm if need be. Others just like the idea of having one and make it as difficult for themselves as they can to access it when its needed the most.

    Press the lock button on fob (push to start) and hold on the third, it will start the vehicle. It will shut off when you unlock it or after 10 min. 2021 TRD Off Road.

    @danmtchl if you haven't gone digging through your settings yet:

    settings > phone > sound settings

    There you can set the volume for phone calls, text notifications, and message readout volume.

    Will this apply to android auto as well? I've always found Google maps navigation to be way too loud in comparison to other audio

    Google Maps actually has a built-in volume adjustment in the app that should carry over when playing over Android Auto. If you go to settings > navigation in Maps you can choose softer/normal/louder for the guidance volume. Hope that helps!

    I installed the Rago Fabrication Molle panels for the center console and attached a Raven Concealment Eidon holster with a Taco mag holder. My knee taps it, but I mostly rest my leg against it without issue. I also run a small EDC Olight and knife cause you never know...

    You run this loaded with one in chamber or just empty like the pic? Always have that hindering feeling if there's a situation the blaster needs to come out I'd rather have it ready to go as soon as it comes out the holster.

    I run it red. The pic was after I installed it and was adjusting for fit a few months back.

    Well that all depends on you and what state you live in. Do you have a permit to CCW? I've never had an issue when I lived in GA, VA, or MD; if you're pulled over they run your plates and find out whether you have a permit alongside any other pertinent information.

    Looks cool, too bad it’s illegal to do that in CA.
    CCW in CA is only on your person.

    Yes I do have a permit. I live in NY. Where I believe that would be illegal.

    As he mentioned, every state’s laws are different and not all bordering states have reciprocity.
