Let tech-fan Irene show you around Touch 2 in this short film:
Fitted as standard on Icon, Sport and Excel models, the Touch 2 system lets you choose the handiest way to connect your phone or tablet, be that by wireless Bluetooth connection or by means of a wired connection to the onboard USB socket. The USB socket will also accept USB drives, so you could load one with your favourite music, plug it in and forget about it!
As the name suggests, the Touch 2 system uses a touchscreen interface, but we’d prefer you to keep your hands on the wheel while you’re driving, so the Yaris is fitted with steering wheel controls too.
You’ll quickly become familiar with the Touch 2 system, and once your phone is paired, safely making a phone call while on the go is no more than a few button presses away. You can stream music from your smartphone, or take advantage of Touch 2’s DAB digital radio to listen in crystal-clear CD-quality audio to one of the hundreds of mainstream and specialist radio stations available.
Touch 2 serves as the central hub for other functions like climate control, interior lighting and door-locking settings, as well as giving you a clear view behind from the Yaris’ reversing camera.
