Not sure what you would call this but ...

Im sitting in my '07 TRD sport today waiting in line at the car wash. I was playing with the buttons and found out that if you put the stereo in FM then hold down the "tune" button and the "text" button for a few seconds a menu comes up. You will see it say " SD 4 ".
press the " tune " button to scroll through the menu options and press
" < seek track > " button to change the selected option. for example the SD is set at 4 but goes up to 1000.
I couldnt figure out this menu so I left it alone.
Anyone know what the hell they do??

A cookie for anyone who figures it out...

Ps sorry if its a repost.

I'm not sure about the 2007 Tacomas, but for all 2006 Mazda 3s, there are a half dozen different little secret radio combinations that when pressed, unlock real-time MPG, average MPG, miles left on tank, and average speed displays.

It was intended so that you pay the dealer to unlock these things for you (for a price, of course) until this info was leaked a few weeks ago.

Your local dealer might have the info you're looking for. And for a measly $200.00, they might give it to you. :)

On my audi you can do something similar and the different codes will display all sorts of info on the radio...from outside air temp, to a digital rpm readout, to all sorts of other things. Maybe toyota incorporated that into the new tacomas

I found a chart online that listed what each of the codes would display, you might be able to find one for the Tacoma but this is the first I've heard of it so I have no idea where you could look.

My 02 mustang has the same thing for the gauges, gives you all kinds of readouts. the digital rpm readout is cool but i have to program it everytime

some info here ... but not much

http://www.tundrasolutions.com/foru...g/35150-2005-tacoma-stereo-test-tune-buttons/

Im finding that most of these menu's like ADCN! or VLVL are to do with voltage programming and Audio / digital codec's. MinBW is min band width for low frequency channels
After rackin my brain and having it melt it looks like toyota wanted somthing that could have a Bluetooth app put in later or some kind of memory ... either that or some Japanese guy did it to mess with us :D

Just a shot in the dark, but perhaps one of them is to change the frequency range to European specs (i.e. radio stations move in increments of 0.05)(101.1, 101.15,101.2, ...). Does the HU run/connect to anything else? OEM amps, lights, etc?

That appears to be the self-diagnostic check for the audio system. I'm guessing AVC-LAN means audio/video control or center-local area network. The network bit would imply that the HU is set up to control other items, like a CD changer or TV tuner or something similar. The funny part is that in Jomentum's post, it only lists two components, the "190 Radio receiver assembly (Audio head
unit)" and "440 Stereo component amplifier assembly". Not much of a network... I'm guessing that the HU has the guts to control other items, as mentioned above, but its currently not implemented. Your last line, "Ver 0019", that can't be changed, is probably the software version number for the HU's "OS".

I concur... are there unused pre outs or any other connections on the factory Head Unit?

I couldn't tell you. I have an '02, and mine didn't have a stock stereo when I got it. But it doesn't mean that the connections would be there on the HU anyways. Many times manufacturers will use the same circuit board, but leave off the relevant chips and connections. So, the outputs could be there, but I doubt it. By not putting it on there, Toyota could save the cost of that connector for each truck made in '07.
