    How can you tell which head unit you have???
    I have a ‘17 CM SR5 with the plus package. 7” (I think) screen with backup camera and nav. I tried to use the Entune app and nothing but I did download Scout and every time I get in my truck, my phone connects.
    I’d like to upgrade some things but want to know more about what I have before I start. Truck purchased is pre-owned so no window sticker

    You have the entune plus....which means no built in gps and Limited apps. The premium has apps and built in gps. You can “upgrade” to the premium head unit if you want to get the built in gps (that’s what I did). But most go aftermarket.

    I had the same head unit and I went to James at 12v. He installed aftermarket head unit. No only did the steering wheel controls work, but it added alot of Toyota apps that come on higher end tundras. Plus so much more. I highly recommend atleast talking to james, he is very knowledgeable and can get your radio where you want it to be. And then some!!

    This is good advice....james is a great seller and will work within your budget. Trust me though - you definitely go down a rabbit hole. The stick speakers and amp are grossly deficient in my opinion. You could do it piece by piece but MUCH easier to save and do it all at once

    Kenwood makes a great head unit. Love mine, and the sound is really great. It lets you adjust levels a million different ways. The only issue is the screen can be hard to see, which makes the navigation kinda useless. Otherwise it's awesome.
