    Yeah, you can rewind, pause, and fast forward the radio.

    The entune app, is it worth downloading and using or no? I've never tried it because the dealership just briefly mentioned it was even a thing.

    I had it when I got my Tacoma but it really didn't seem worth it so I deleted it. I honestly cannot say I remember what it all did. That's pretty much how pointless it was. Lol.

    Tundras make gas disappear as you're pumping it! Old guy at the gas station this weekend was starting on filling up his car when I pulled up and we started talking. He finished filling his car up, went in the store, and when he came back out he started looking under my truck. He says "you must have a hole in your gas tank because it's been pumping forever!" Gotta love the 38 gallon tank.

    You can throw it in reverse as long as you're going over 25 mph and the backup camera will come on.

    I'm not sure if it's entune that does this but... on mine, i get gas stations with prices - it has some other crap on there too, like facebook but I'm too old for that crap. Gas station info is useful and I also confess that I checked the stock prices on there the other day...

    Now, I've no idea if that's entune doing that or some other wizardary going on

    I admit it does take some sterner stuff to do it the first time. And some didn't believe this was my video, so I had to make a second one.

    If you use the Tow/Haul mode, It's like a sport mode. Shifts more aggressively and much more fun!

    I guess you could say it feels neutral. It's an electronic lockout, stays in neutral.
