    Looking for an Overhead Temp/Compass Console. My 2011 appears to be all prewired and seems to have the temp sensor. Anyone know part numbers for the board and electronic display panel, etc.
    Thanks.

    your not gonna want to buy it after you find out the price...from the dealer IIRC is somewhere in the 600 dollar ballpark. Used units go for 300-400 and up if you can get your hands on one.

    Your not going to find a used temp/compass console for a 2009-2011 for $150.00
    The 2005-2008's yes but not for the 2009 and up tacomas.

    yea no resistor to check, cause no board installed. Looking for board and possibly the sensor. Wiring is all there. They do come in handy in Northeast when temps hover around the 28- 34 degree days during spring and fall of black ice seasons.

    I'm looking for the console as well to upgrade the SR5 "garage door remote" recess to the compass/temperature gage. Based on earlier threads, it appears you need the entire console, inlcuing the map lights and sun glass holders unless you want to monkey around with breaking plastic rivets and glueing a new compass/temp unit in place. As my 2011 is still under warrenty, I would rather not go that route but I did pull the existing unit to verify that the wiring is there all ready to go.

    OEM for the entire console is 63650AD022B0. Dealer price is (please sit down) $987.20. Discount OEM online stores seem to offer it for around $750 +/-.

    (Existing SR5 unit w/o compass and temp is 65650AD010B0.)

    If you want to cut and glue or are replaceing an existing unit (say in the TRD trim pkg) the compass/temp module alone is OEM 83290-04011. Dealer want about $296.

    So that make two of us, gwatk and myself (Tahoma Mnt Man) who are looking for a 2009-2011 overhead console.

    Any leads any one?

    PS The temp prob should already be there, in front of the radiator, near the horn.

    yes, in my 2011 all the cables and the temp sensor are there. I found the temp sensor located just behind the front grille in the center.

    BTW. All I have in the overhead console is a place for sunglasses and overhead map lights. the other compartment is empty, which I assume would house the garage door opener or temp/ compass option without modification( not sure if other physical mods required)

    I went to Toyota parts 123 web site and my local dealer web site and went to 2011 Tacoma parts and looked under Cab parts/interior trim and found the compass w/temp gauge listed for about $225.00 give or take. I'm not sure if it will fit your overhead console, but I suspect it will fit where the garage door opener space is. Check with your dealer/parts person and they should know if it will fit. They don't list part numbers on web site. Hope this helps.

    My answer might belong in "Cheap / Free Mods"
    Consider a cheap, wireless remote thermometer. The image below is like the one I bought at walmart for about $6.

    I have my remote unite mounted in bed but plan to move to somewhere under the hood once it warm out. (have a tonneau so it registers a few degree high in daylight hours)

    I was looking at the cheap auto thermometers that you have to run the probe but chose a wireless unit; it cost less and is pretty durable.

    Let me know what you find out. I had considered doing the same thing, just never got around to it.

    Hey guys, to upgrade a 2009, 2010 or 2011 overhead console with a SR5 garage door pocket with TRD temp and compass module you need the entire console, inlcuing the map lights and sun glass holders unless you want to monkey around with breaking plastic rivets and glueing a new compass/temp unit in place. OEM for the entire console is 63650AD022B0. Dealer price is (please sit down) $987.20. Discount OEM online stores seem to offer it for around $750 +/-.

    If you want to "monkey around" i.e. cut and glue or are replaceing an existing unit (say in the TRD trim pkg) the compass/temp module alone is OEM 83290-04011. Dealer want about $296.

    Jefferson had a pretty good write up on it awhile back:

    Good luck!

    Hey wmdpowell,

    I like your idea of the cheap remote until the prices of the late model TRD overhead consoles start to drop on account of more supply and less demand.

    How long have you have it and how well does it seem to work? Also, where did you mount it in your 2011 SR5. I hate to cheesmo up a brand new vehcile too much but damn if I don't like to know if it is icy out. (Never mind the compass as I have a pigeon brain that stays pretty well on orientation but give me the fricking compass will ya!?)

    Thanks for your thoughts!
