    Trying to find out about upgrading radio to navigation. One dealer says it can be done. Another says no. Any experience with this without putting in an aftermarket radio where you lose the steering wheel controls? 2015 sr5 4x4 with 5.7l engine

    Not sure about the stock radio, but most good aftermarket units can be installed with an interface adapter that allows you to use most if not all of the normal controls from the steering wheel.

    I just use an app called Waze on my phone. It shows road hazards and traffic ahead of you.
    Factory GPS needs to be updated every year or two at your expense.
    I'll never pay for GPS in a vehicle again.
