    A buddy has a Mustang with the Sync setup. Neat gadget, but it seems like more of a hassle than anything.

    Adjusting the heater, for instance, requires hitting a button the steering wheel, saying "Temperature 72 degrees", and hoping nobody else talks while you're doing that. I always make sure I talk over him while he's setting stuff.

    Meanwhile I just turn a knob and don't have to interrupt my music. I like the mechanical stuff better for convenience and reliability, but that's just me.

    I had a question for those of in '12 Tacomas equipped with Entune AND a smartphone of some kind: after all of the initial setup and what not and you're at the point of daily "normal" driving, do you need to start/connect the Entune app on your phone each time in order to be able to take advantage of the Tacoma's entune "apps" features? i understand the gps/navigation/map can operate as a stand-alone function, but will the fuel prices, sports scores, weather, traffic, etc. only work if you re-connect/start your phone's Entune app each time you get in and start your car?

    Admittedly, I haven't familiarized myself enough with Entune to the point where I can figure it out myself, so while i am in the process of doing so, i figured it wouldn't hurt to ask others. thanks in advance.
