Toyota Touch 2 with Go

Toyota Touch 2 with Go receives a major software upgrade which includes an improved, clearer, more user-friendly menu screen design, 10 brand new features, the improved functionality of over 30 items, and simplified connection to the Toyota customer portal for easier downloading of apps.

The system also benefits from three years free map care and connected services. These include map updates and free registration to TomTom real-time traffic information, mobile speed camera notification*, fuel price information, parking locations and availability, weather updates, Google Search, Google Street View, Aupeo!, Aha and Twitter. The three year package may be extended by two years** to match Toyota’s five year extended vehicle warranty**. Moreover, this 2016 software update is also available to all current system owners.

All Touch 2 with Go system top menus now feature a tile-based icon design for greater clarity and improved touch operability. It also improves functionality by reducing the number of steps required for each operation. The navigation menu and sub-menus have been simplified, and a redesigned map screen features new shortcut tile icons for improved clarity and operability. A new split-screen view allows users to see more functions at a glance, combining the navigation map with media and app information.

Navigation services have also been enhanced within the system. For instance, when entering a destination, the driver can simultaneously check Street View images and the weather at the destination, as well as look for parking in the area. As the vehicle approaches the destination, the system will also inform the driver of available parking spaces nearby. TomTom real-time traffic is now automatically adopted as a default traffic information source as soon as the driver establishes a data connection with his mobile phone.

A new auto navigation function allows the driver to programme the system with up to four destinations, and a departure time window, for each day of the week. When the vehicle is switched on within that departure time window, the navigation system automatically activates, plotting a route to the chosen destination. The system incorporates TomTom real-time traffic information, and will propose alternative routes to the driver in order to avoid congestion on, for instance, a daily commute.

Point of Interest (POI) search functionality has also been improved through better map and listing information integration, and a POI search-word history function for the faster location of favourite destinations. The phone interface has also been redesigned for easier, more intuitive use on the move. A new screen layout gives direct access to an incoming/outgoing/missed call list in the top menu, once again reducing the number of operation steps required.

A higher grade Touch 2 with Go*** system further features voice recognition, a text-to-speech function and 3D navigation mapping. Voice recognition may now be used for the launch and control of apps, for simple, one-shot navigation address confirmation, and for the use of Apple Siri eyes-free. Driver merely need to press and hold the Voice Recognition button on the steering wheel to talk to Siri on their iPhone.

The setup menu now also includes a ‘Let’s get Started’ QR code which opens an online quick start system guide on the user’s mobile device. Connection to the Toyota customer portal has been made easier, and customers can now quickly create a My Toyota account on-screen, from within the vehicle. The downloading of apps has also been simplified. Once the owner has established a data connection with his mobile phone, apps can be installed directly onto the system from within the vehicle.

  1. I downloaded 6.12.0H on 26/10 and had no problem installing it. It did take a few minutes to recognise the USB stick. In the 6.12.0H directory there should be 5 files (total 2.05Gb) and one folder (NAV @ 5.26Gb). All files/folder need to be in the root of the USB memory (7.48Gb) and you should not have a 6.12.0H folder.
    I hope this information helps you…

  2. I have just updated my Touch2 Go to the latest (Autumn 2018) map and system. There are quite a few differences from the 2015 system that my car came with, so is there an updated manual for the Nav/Multimedia system available for download?

    1. Hi Ashley,

      Thanks for getting in touch. The manual hasn’t yet been updated for the latest software update, however you can download a more recent navigation manual, for example for a 2018 vehicle, which will demonstrate similar and familiar features. You can find them via this link:

      https://www.toyota.co.uk/tme#/my-toyota/eManual.

      If you have any further queries regarding this, we would advise for you to contact our Multimedia Team, as they will be able to assist you further:

      Thanks.

  3. I am trying to update maps for my Touch 2 & Go under the 3 years free updates arrangement. My Software version is 6.11.0WL but your update service considers this invalid (either with an O or 0).

    1. Hi David,

      Thanks for getting in touch. If you could please provide us with your reg or VIN number we can follow this up with our Multimedia team.

      Thanks.

  4. Hi David,

    Thanks for your patience. To update maps you will need to select Map Update 6.13.0L. It will be listed with a price, however as you add it to your basket it will recognise your registered vehicle and navigation system and change to “free via Mapcare”.

    Please get back in touch if you need any further assistance.

    Thanks.

  5. Hi,
    My reg: PF69 XLY.
    I downloaded 6.14.0H, and followed the instructions to update. But, it is not updating, after confirm for “keep engine running”. It goes back to the first screen. My old version of the software is 6.14.0WH, Map ID:2019 v2.
    Any advices will be highly appreciated.
    Kind regards,
    Zhou
