The screen on my head unit (Entune system) completely froze up and was stuck on the Toyota logo. Would not allow the radio to work or anything that the screen cobtrols. Apparently this is a known problem. Dealer said the entire unit needs to be replaced (an $800 repair) But my warranty is out and I'm pretty ticked off that a two year old Toyota is having this problem.
