    Thanks to everyone here, the new Tacoma has been coming a long. All the mods and advice have been awesome. With a Taupe interior a map/compass unit was not in the cards, but thanks to you guys I knew I had the wiring and ordered a genex mirror and have the temp thing covered with what should be an easy easy installation.

    So what the hell do I do with that stupid garage door opener compartment. I don't have a garage that uses it and would probably do something more concealed anyway if I did.

    So has anyone found a useful function for it.

    Do they have any bluetooth modules that fit in there for the tacoma?

    Been racking my brain to use that space for something :)

    I use the sun glass holder up there for my sun glasses. Not sure what model has a garage door opener holder.

    You could use it as a base for a Scanguage install. Flip it up into the closed position when you don't need it or are parked in a public place.

    I'm looking to install an overhead LED to light up the cupholders. I bought the LEDs to do the lighted cupholder mod a year and a half ago and haven't gotten around to installing them. I really like how our highlander has the overhead LED pointing down on the cupholders, so now I'm considering doing something like that instead for lighting the cupholders. If I go through with it this winter, I just might mount it in the garage door opener space. Maybe you could beat me to it? LOL

    Sorry; forgot all you TRD guys wouldn't know what I m talking about :) The garage door holder is for us poor slobs with the base model or SR5 models. :)

    Some good ideas, there must be something really neat you can do with tat overhead space....

    I'd be interested to see how this pans out. I have a Highlander also and like the LED that lights up the console.
