Sorry to hear your compass and ambient temp display isn't working. Unfortunately, this is a common issue with the '05 to '09 Tacomas. It is possible to temporarily fix it yourself (search google for forums), however the repair doesn't last long due to previous oxidation of the components.
My company repairs these in a manner that precludes the problem from happening again (we use new components, and a heatsink to prevent debonding). Repair includes a one year warranty on our work!
Check out our website, and feel free to contact me with questions.

Are your cruise control, dome, and tail lights also out? If so then it
is a fuse. If not then the control unit has gone bad internally. You may
be able to get it fixed under your warranty.
If it is not covered by your warranty, check out
www.autoclockrepair.com. We offer a very reasonable repair solution.

'05 - '09 Tacoma temp and compass gauge displays commonly 'burn out' due to component failure on the circuit board; this is not due to a fuse, and the dealership charges $200 or more for the new part.
However, we permanently fix the problem using all new components and a lead wire underlayment as a heatsink. See our site for more info: http://www.toyotatacomacompassrepair.com
Thanks and good luck...silicongeek
