So after twelve years driving an ultra-reliable 2006 Toyota Tacoma, I decided it
was finally time to upgrade. So, of course, what else to buy ... but a 2018
Toyota Tacoma. :)
Things have really changed in twelve years, and where my old truck originally
came with a simple CD player head unit (that I later upgraded to a Clarion
CX-501, primarily because I wanted Bluetooth), my new truck has this fancy
touchscreen entertainment system that has mountains of options and can even show
me weather radar while driving!
So I was exploring around inside the menus last night and I discovered that you
can, theoretically, set custom images as your startup and "screen off" images.
But, unfortunately, the details of how to do this are buried somewhere in a
SEVEN HUNDRED PAGE owners manual with a very thin index. Ain't nobody got time
for that. So I googled around and found some answers on forum threads, and
decided to write a post on how to do this to raise the visibility of it some.
