OK, I initially had trouble with the cable not passing the diagnostic test, and it would refuse to connect to the engine ECU. After downloading a new MVCI driver as suggested by 33k, it worked fine. The newer driver (v2.0.1) can be downloaded from this Skydrive site:

I turned off the DRL's, because I always drive with the headlights on anyway. I also changed the defroster to NOT automatically turn on the A/C compressor so I can control it myself. The dealer would charge a lot more than the 30 bucks this package costs--it's a great deal!

How did you change the milage on your car? I have access to the oem techstream from toyota at work, but I don't think that it can change the milage... our version is 7.00.020

I don't think he's changing the actual vehicle mileage, that would be quite illegal. And his RAV4 didn't have 666,666 miles on it to start with.

Exactly. It's just a test mode, and goes back to normal when you're through. Here's another test mode for the display:
