    I have a 2016 TRD Sport and have had issues with my radio, media console.

    It will stop playing or functioning and reset itself. This happens when I’m using the Bluetooth function or entering an address for directions

    Also it has frozen on startup and done nothing. I have to turn the truck off then back on to get it to work.

    The dealer has installed a couple updates thinking this was the issue-but it continues to happen in spite of this.

    Has anyone else run into this issue?

    Try contacting corporate and getting a case started. They might need to replace the head unit.

    Yeah. Like posted above it does this more when its time for an update.
    I’ve noticed it more when using the voice command or Bluetooth Siri hands free option a lot in a row. It seems to overload it and it resets.

    Thanks. My dealer is pretty good. They’ve told me that a new unit is on order.

    Got my truck a week ago, the radio reset several times when I tried to use the Bluetooth, a mechanismat my job said to take the navigation sd card out and put it back in. Since I did that I have not had an issue. I have an appointment at the dealership this week to start a case and get it documented so they have it on record.

    Mine usually only resets when it gets overwhelmed from too much use I.E. Siri hands free and Bluetooth music.
    I’ve never heard of anyone taking the SD Navigation card out for a fix.
    I don’t understand how that would help but it’s good to know.
    Thanks for sharing.

    It’s only because you don’t like to play with your SD card.
