2016 Toyota Touch 2 with Go multimedia system

The upgraded 2016 Toyota Touch 2 with Go multimedia system offers significant new features over the outgoing version, including tile-based menu designs, improved functionality, and a simplified connection to the MyToyota customer portal.

Some of the key advantages are explained below.

Touch 2 with Go: naming and navigation

From the 2016 model year, the range of multimedia systems has been simplified to two options: Toyota Touch 2, and Toyota Touch 2 with Go.

MM16 Touch 2 with Go 09

Vehicles with 2016 Toyota Touch 2 with Go as standard, or with Go selected as an option, now benefit from free annual map care updates for three years as well as three years of connected services. High-spec Excel grade models (excluding Yaris) include the extra functions of 3D maps, voice recognition, and text-to-speech within the navigation system.

Touch 2 with Go: new features

The 2016 Toyota Touch 2 with Go has 10 new features, accessed via a new tile-based menu design (see below) which offers greater clarity and improved operation. It also improves functionality by reducing the number of steps required to complete each operation.

MM16 Touch 2 with Go 01

The navigation menu and sub-menus have been simplified, and a new split-screen view allows users to see more functions at a glance, combining the navigation map with access to settings and app information (see below). In addition, the navigation screen can be customised so owners can create short-cut tile icons to frequently used operations.

One of the key new features is Auto-navigation (see below), a function that allows the driver to programme the navigation system with up to four regular destinations and a departure time window for each day of the week.

When the vehicle is switched on within that departure time the navigation automatically activates, plotting the most congestion-free route to the chosen destination on that particular day. In order to make this proposal, information is drawn from TomTom real-time traffic information.

Further navigation enhancements include the ability to check Street View images and what the weather is like at your destination. As you approach the destination, the system will also inform the driver of available parking spaces nearby.

MM16 Touch 2 with Go 03

Vehicles with built-in voice recognition now benefit from Siri eyes-free software, which delivers vocal control of Apple iPhone functions. The driver merely needs to press and hold the voice recognition button on the steering wheel to talk to Siri on his iPhone (Android version not available).

Touch 2 with Go: registering with MyToyota

The 2016 Toyota Touch 2 with Go software update now allows owners to establish a mobile data connection with the device and create a MyToyota customer account from inside the car, thereby avoiding any difficulties programming the unit’s individual ID number.

After pressing the [SETUP] button the device will take you through a straightforward step-by-step process to create the account. The setup menu also includes a ‘Let’s Get Started’ QR code which will open an online quick start guide on the user’s mobile device. Alternatively, these processes can be seen by visiting my.toyota.eu/getstarted

Touch 2 with Go: When will each model get it?

The new 2016 Toyota Touch 2 with Go began to be installed in cars produced from 1 January 2016 and will be installed in all current models produced from 1 June. Brand new models such as the Toyota C-HR will have this latest generation system from the start of production.

  1. Hello,
    I have succesfully managed to update Toyota Touch 2 go to MM16 software. However the key issue not being able to browse iPhone 6s music library persists. We have two iPhone 6s in the house and both have same issues. Is this a known issue? I have tried unpairing, removing device form toyota system and iPhone but no luck so far.

      1. I have checked this now. Music browsing should be supported with the iOS version on our phones (10.3). What else could be the issue?

      2. Hi there,
        We will speak with our technical team and get back to you. Many thanks.

      3. Hi there,
        Our technical team have got back to us and advised the following:
        “The browsing feature is not supported on the vehicle at this moment in time. There is no confirmation of the 10.3 software version update on our system at the moment and iPhone 6s goes up to 10.2 software version.”

      4. Hi. When does Toyota plan to update the software to be compatible with iOS 10.3?
        This is a significant inconvenience and given the amount of iPhones on the market should be a priority for a fix. Thanks in advance for your support.

      5. Hi there,
        Apple browsing worked on 10.2 and when Apple updated the phone software they dropped it again. Unfortunately, this is nothing to do with the car – it’s an Apple software choice. Pre version 9 browsing was never possible, it came in with 10, and now Apple have dropped it again. We hope this helps.

  2. Hi there I have toyota touch 2 in my yaris 2015
    Try to connect galaxy note 4 with mirrorlink.
    Phone says mirror link active. But there is nothing on toyota touch 2 screen. I’m using MM16 software version.
    Please solve this problem. .

    1. Hi Zaheer,
      We’re in talks with our technical team and we will get back to you when we hear back from them.

    2. Hi Zaheer,
      Unfortunately it is not possible to do MirrorLink on the Touch multimedia systems. It is not a compatible feature as MirrorLink have not upgraded their service to be compatible to certain smartphones.

  3. Hello there,
    Regarding this latest Toyota Touch with Go 2 system is it backwards compatible for a November 2014 registered Toyota Verso Excel 1.6 D-4D, which is equipped with a factory assembled Toyota Touch & Go 1 system?
    Is it technically possible to replace in this vehicle the factory fitted Toyota Touch & Go 1 system with a newest version Toyota Touch & Go 2 system?
    And if backwards compatible is it as simple as take out the Toyota Touch & Go 1 system in this vehicle and assemble a new Toyota Touch & Go 2 system or will the vehicle need some additional changes?
    Thanking you in advance
    Best Regards,
    Jaime

    1. Hi Jamie,
      Thanks for getting in touch. We’d advise contacting your local Toyota dealer as certain vehicle models are not able to have multimedia systems altered due to specification and design. Your dealer would be in the best position to assist. You can find your nearest dealer here: https://www.toyota.co.uk/find-your-dealer.json.
      Many thanks.

  4. Hi. I just ordered a new land cruiser prado, then I noticed that in every test video it uses the old (mm13?) system, how is this possible in 2018?

    1. Hi Atte. Your IP address tells us that you are based in Finland. Please contact Toyota Finland if you have any questions about your vehicle. Thanks.

  5. My recently CH-R 2019 have a Touch 2 MM13 as I see in the images.

    It is normal that in 2018 Toyota mount a touch that came out 4 years ago in C-HR?

    1. Hi Anna,
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      Please could you provide us with your registration number so we can investigate into this?
      Thanks.

  6. Hi I have an Auris that should still be covered by the 3 year map care, although barely – we just found out about the updates, unfortunately the people at the dealership weren’t that helpful. How can we go about getting the update? Reg is LL45NHB

    1. Hi Artur,

      Thanks for contacting us. Unfortunately, the registration number provided is not valid in our database. If you could please provide a VIN for your vehicle, we will be able to assist you further.

      Thanks.

  7. Hi,
    I have Avensis from 08.2018 with Touch 2 with Go MM16. After successful upgrade to 6.12.0L bluetooth modul stop working (after message “waiting for bluetooth module”) screen is like https://static.cargurus.com/images/site/2017/06/15/10/17/pic-8042846670449638575-1600×1200.jpeg?_ga=2.240685381.797028482.1498360007-1145958947.1498360007 and bluetooth can not be enabled. What is really sad is behaviour of local toyota service – they told me that “I have damage bluetooth module because I have brake upgrade”. What is not true – I was waiting til the end, system finish upgrade, asked me to remove usb stick and then restart. Could you help ?

    1. Hi Sue,

      Thanks for getting in touch. The speed is displayed on the dashboard, not on your touch and go navigation system.

      We hope this helps 🙂

  8. Hi, I have just bought an Avensis Business Edition (yr2015), I cant seem to get the voice recognition system working. I have a button on the steering wheel to activate it but nothing happens as described in the manual. Can anyone help with this?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Dave,

      Thanks for getting in touch. It’s great to hear you’re driving an Avensis. To help with your issue, please can you provide us with the reg or VIN and we will be able to look into this further.

      Thanks.

      1. Hi Dave,

        Thanks for getting back in touch with us. We’ve checked this with our team and your model grade Business + Edition, is fitted with a Touch 2 with Go multimedia system however it does not have the support of voice recognition. Only the Excel grade supports voice recognition at that time period of release.

        Thanks.

  9. Hi,

    I bought Toyota Verso Design (66 plate) two weeks ago. It’s equipped with Toyota Touch 2 with Go and Although I managed to connect it with my phone via bluetooth, I was not able to voice operate it even though there is a button designated for voice recognition on the steering wheel.

    I read the car’s manual and was searching online for answers, but I was unable to find any information regarding the voice control on Verso.

    Would you be able to provide me with some information on this matter or assist me in resolving my issue?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Kind regards,

    Stefan

    1. Hi Stefan,

      Thanks for getting in touch and we’re sorry to hear you’re experiencing this issue. If you could please provide us with the reg or VIN, we will be able to look into this further with our team.

      Thanks.

      1. Hi Stefan,

        Thanks for coming back to us with this. Unfortunately, your model grade of the Toyota Verso, does not support Voice Recognition. This is only available on our Touch 2 with Go Plus system. The Voice Recognition button is included on all models incase Touch 2 with Go Plus is specified by customers.

        Thanks.

      2. Is there any way of upgrading from Touch 2 with Go to Touch 2 with Go Plus? Or it’s a completely different device altogether? Thanks.

      3. Hi Stefan,

        Thanks for getting back in touch. Unfortunately, your multimedia system can’t be upgraded as the specific head unit has to be factory fitted.

        Thanks.
