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.

The table below shows the introduction schedule of Touch 2 with Go during the manufacture of each current production model in 2016.

  2. I just bought a 2nd hand RAV4 hybrid Icon in Northern Ireland, UK which dealer says us 2018, mytoyota says is 2017.
    It does not have the newer touch&go2 head unit and I want to know why not? REG is NRZ6077.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Michael,
      Thanks for getting in touch with us, and congratulations on your new car!
      We’ve checked our database, and your vehicle is a MY18 RAV4, which was produced in September 2017.
      It is fitted with the Toyota Touch 2 system as standard, from the factory.
      Thanks.

  3. Hello Toyota

    I have recently bought a prius 2020. It has toyota touch 2 with go as I believe from the info given on toyota website. The website says that it has android auto and apple car play, however, iam unable to find this service on my multimedia device. Please help me out in this.
    Thanks

    1. Hi Ali,
      Thanks for getting in touch, and congratulations on your new Prius! We hope you’re enjoying it so far.
      Could you please provide us with your reg? We can then check this out for you.
      Thanks.

  4. Hello Toyota

    I have recently bought a Auris 2015 . It has toyota touch 2 with go as I believe from the info given on toyota website. The website says that it has android auto and apple car play, however, i am unable to find this service on my multimedia device. Please help me out in this.
    Thanks

    1. Hi Jacky,
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      The 2015 Auris does not come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This is a new feature for our cars, and it was therefore not available in 2015.
      Thanks.

      1. If it’s a new car feature why do you call the navigation system Touch 2 for older and newer models? If in the past you had google street now it is no more available but now it’s available again on newer models. So you took features in time from Auris multimedia system that were present at that time. If I’ll buy a new Toyota what guarantee do I have that I’ll keep at least the existent features in the future and not having the same issue I have with Auris now? Multimedia updates it’s a must and not a car feature.

      2. Hi Alin,
        Thanks for getting in touch with us.
        For further information specific to your region, we would recommend contacting the Toyota distributor in your region.
        Thanks.

  5. hi toyota
    i have a avensis, with touch 2
    i want to update the sat nav does the 3yr map care have map updates for3 yrs or just the one off update?

    1. Hi Danny, thanks for your comment.

      The three-year map care includes map updates and there are usually two published each year.
      If you need a hand with this, our Multimedia Team will be able to help and can be contacted through this form: http://fal.cn/ya-i.

      Thanks

  6. Hi I have just taken ownership of my new Toyota Hilux SP21 DBU. It has a Navigation tab on the screen but when I press it it says this is not available. Do I need to install or do something to get the Satellite Navigation working?

    Thanks James

    1. Hi James,
      Thanks for getting in touch, and congratulations on your new Hilux!
      Can we ask you to provide your VIN for us please? Your registration doesn’t currently seem to be working in our database.
      For MY20, only the Invincible X grade comes with navigation.
      However, the Icon, Invincible and Invincible X grades all come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, meaning that maps can be used through your smartphone for these.
      Thanks.

  7. Hello. I have a Auris 2016 Excel with Touch 2 with Go+ I believe. Can you please tell me if Apple CarPlay is available for this vehicle? Also I do not believe my system is updated to MM16 – how am I able to update this? Thank you.

    1. Hi Amit,
      Thank you for your comment.
      Apple CarPlay is not available for your vehicle.
      Regarding updates, our specialist multimedia team will be best placed to advise. They can be contacted here: https://fal.cn/3eeaN.
      Thanks.

  8. I’ve just bought an Auris touring sport 2018 Cy18blv. Dealer Jemca said it had “navigation system”. But map/nav button says it doesn’t function. Does this car have satnav or not?

    1. Hi Steve,
      Thanks for your comment.
      From the information that we can access, it appears that your vehicle is not equipped with navigation.
      However, your Toyota Centre will be best placed to confirm this, so we would recommend checking this with them.
      Thanks.
