Toyota Touch 2: How to use sat-nav

Toyota Touch 2 is our advanced multimedia system and offers a rear-view camera, touchscreen control of the entertainment system plus access to your hands-free phone.

Touch 2 with Go adds satellite-navigation, a host of online connected services and a vast array of fantastic Toyota applications. Touch 2 with Go Plus adds voice control.

In this post we’ll take a look at how to use the Touch 2 with Go sat-nav in your Toyota and some of its additional features. It’s also possible to send journey details to your in-car navigation from the MyToyota online customer portal – to find out more about this, read our introduction to MyToyota.

The following video explains the process and we’ve also prepared step-by-step instructions below.

Start by pressing the system ‘NAVIGATION’ button.

Then press ‘ROUTE OPTIONS’, where you can choose to show route alternatives on your maps. You’ll only have to do this once.

Now return to the Navigation main screen and press ‘ENTER DESTINATION’.

Enter the relevant address or postcode, then ask the system to calculate the route.

Your device will offer you three route alternatives – Fast, Short and Ecological.

You also have the option of avoiding motorways, tolls, tunnels and ferries.

You can also change map modes between the normal map and the traffic map.
Touch 2 with Go Plus enables 3D mapping.

For more information on traffic services please see our post “How To Use Toyota Real Time Traffic”.

The icon in the bottom corner of the screen will access further information and map options.

Press the ‘POIs’ button to see all the different points of interest on your route, including destinations for eating, shopping and entertainment.

Touch 2 with Go can also access destinations in your phonebook contacts as well as destinations sent from Google or TomTom maps if your phone is paired with your device.

  1. Where can I buy a satellite navigation system for my Yaris Hybrid (2017 model). I don’t seem able to locate any information

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Could you please provide us with some more information about what you’re looking for including the reg or VIN of your Yaris?

      Thanks.

      1. We just bought an Auris icon hybrid & would like to know if navigation could be added to the multimedia system?

  2. I have a 2012 Yaris just purchased (used) I seem unable to get my beep to work on traffic cameras it worked ok when on the the map but not working when I dont want the maps on.?

      1. hello, I have a Avensis Tspirit D-4D year 2008 and my cd player keeps saying check cd.
        the radio works but the cd does not play and keeps saying check cd.
        sometimes it works but mostly not. I wondered if it is broke /breaking or am I doing something wrong. thankyou

  3. The _vast_ majority of the addresses in my iPhone phone book come up as “Address not navigable” when I try to tell my Touch 2 SatNav to use them as a destination, but if I manually enter the address they work fine. A small few work from the phone, and I can’t see any commonality to suggest why. Where can I find documentation on how I need to enter/store addresses in my phone so that the Satnav can parse them?

    1. My sat nav was turned off when I bought the car so the car was a bit cheaper to buy on a yaris hybrid 18 plate how do you turn it on please

  4. When I press the arrow button to get the sat nav it says “you dont have this function” whereas my manual says I do..
    What can I do to set this up or troubleshoot?

    1. Hi Yasmin,
      Thanks for getting in touch with us.
      Please could you provide us with your UK reg? We can then look into this for you.
      Thanks.
