Adding sat nav to Touch 2

Recommended Posts

Hi

New to the forum, try to find the topic but couldn't find.

I do have a 66 Yaris Icon Auto, which comes with the Touch 2 system.

I am considering adding the Nav function, so I found the hardware unit on ebay for about £250 (doesn't come with a GPS antenna).

For any of those who have the Go function build in, is it worth.

Secondly, how easy would it be to add the functionality (adding the unit itself shouldn't be a problem, but where does the receiver antenna go?)

I am open to any advise and suggestions, And if anyone has done it, Were there any additional costs other then the unit itself (eg. programming, additional hardware or software)

 

Thanks in advance.

I have the Touch 2 without Go. I think my best decision is to buy the top-of-the-range TomTom instead of upgrading the original unit.

Before you progress, check out the cost of updating the maps.

You can find the installation instructions on https://www.toyota-tech.eu

A Garmin/Tomtom will work out cheaper with more frequently updated maps but obviously isn't as neat.

I have touch and go sat nav built in Yaris, but can't help as I am not using it. I drive locally only.

It was calculating fastest routes and sending me towards dual carriage ways. Good thing is you can cancel out motorways. I didn't want to take those routes in my local area so I have switched it off. I have not driven on a motorway yet.

Serjan Hi, with the info supplied by 'Heidfirst' I fitted the 'Sat Nav' module to upgrade my wife's 'Touch 2 about 6 months ago.. It took me about 30 mins all in. You'll need the GPS Ariel and the 2 x mount brackets (usually in place) . Toyota will supply and fit for about £800, so like you I got an e-bay job and.Insistrd on getting the GPS Aerial, and connection cables. I can understand the Tom Tom thinking, nut not for me.I also registered it through 'My Toyota', so it shows up on car spec sheet.
