Toyota Touch 2

The Toyota Touch 2 system is the latest generation of our basic multimedia system and features some important upgrades.

At the core of improvements are redesigned screens with a deeper, 3D effect for graphics. Image resolution has been improved too, meaning the screen is brighter and images are sharper.

On-screen menus have been redesigned to incorporate key vehicle information including fuel economy and DAB radio function (where available). What’s more, the screen now supports ‘drag and flick’ control for easy, intuitive operation.

Toyota Touch 2 with Go

The Toyota Touch 2 with Go system takes all of the basic function of the Touch 2 device and adds a versatile and detailed satellite navigation system.

As well as offering simple-to-use navigation functions, the system also allows users to tailor the information on offer, to include customisable speed limits, speed camera warnings, automatic zoom, motorway signposting and motorway junction views. The map zoom function is controlled by a simple rotary button at the side of the device.

Advanced traffic coverage, now located on the map itself, takes the form of a ‘traffic bar’ showing the driver any congestion ahead, and how long a delay to expect.

Via the Toyota Online function, the system offers on-board connectivity to an expanded range of services including Toyota Real-Time Traffic powered by TomTom, Google Street View and Panoramio, and Google Local Search –the largest and most up-to-date search database in the world.

The MyToyota customer portal also allows users to plan their journeys online. Destinations can be input remotely from home or office via Google Maps, and Points of Interest (POI) may be downloaded for entry as destinations.

Toyota Online content includes a Touch 2 with Go Apps function which offers several applications, including fuel prices, weather and parking space information.

This smart music recognition system can automatically provide playlist recommendations to suit your mood; a safe and easy way to manage music on the move.

Touch 2 with Go Plus supports Wi-Fi connectivity. Users set up their smartphones as a Wi-Fi hotspot for connection to the system’s online functions.
