Is there any way to install free the maps and the navigation system in my yaris?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I wanted to ask if there is a way to intall the sat nav without paying so much money. I have a 2014 model yaris and I try to find out how to get even free the maps and the navigation system. Do you know if I can find any file to intall through the CD or something? Also does it really hasn't a USB entrance?

if it has the Touch 2 system without Go (nav) then you can't as it's a modular system with the nav being another hardware box+ GPS antenna that plugs into the head unit.

You can buy a Garmin/Tomtom or use Google Maps/Waze etc. on a smartphone or tablet with appropriate mount.

I've got the navigation system on my 2014Yaris. I contacted my Toyota dealer to enquire about getting the maps updated and was quoted £230. That's just silly. I can manage without that thanks.

Updates for manufacturer systems are usually expensive compared to updates for stand alone units from the likes of Garmin, TomTom, etc

The map update file is available via the My Toyota portal. It costs £109 - no mention of free updates for future years.

The higher costs will be for your garage to do the work - £109 is for DIY installs. Here are the pre-reqs. for DIY:

Installation:

  • Windows PC (to download the map)
  • Toyota Touch & Go Toolbox (refer to popup for download link)
  • An Internet connection
  • A USB storage device with more than 4.7GB of space
  • Software version 1.7.2 or higher installed on your Toyota Touch & Go

As of some point in 2016 all new cars with Touch 2 with Go got 3 year Map Care. Fairly certain that those without get 3 year Map Care when they update but it is possible that it may only apply to cars registered within a certain time frame..

I got mine updated via the dealer last year and this year the portal says '£109 please'.

Yes, it will say £109 but my understanding is that once you pay it you will get 3 years Map Care (again, it is possible that this only extends to systems first registered within a prticular time frame) - Devon Aygo will know & could possibly clarify.

I'll try my best:

Touch launched in 2012 and could be upgraded with the "Go" navigation module this launched with software version 1.6.1 and the latest version is 2.15.5.  There where 2 version/levels:

Go this version never benefited from free updates you can only purchase a one off update which does not get the map care offer.

Go Plus this initially benefited from 3 years map care giving free updates for this period, after the 3 years has passed you can only purchase a one off update which does not get the map care offer.

Touch 2 launched in 2014 and could be upgraded with the "Go" navigation module this launched with a software version of 3.3.0 the latest version of this earlier software ended with 4.5.0. As above there where 2 version/levels:

Go this version never benefited from free updates you can purchase a one off update which does not get the map care offer or you can purchase an update including 3 years map care.

Go Plus this initially benefited from 3 years map care giving free updates for this period, after the 3 years has passed you can purchase a one off update which does not get the map care offer or you can purchase an update including 3 years map care.

From late 2016 Toyota introduced a software update version 6.6.0 (now up to version 6.9.0) and cars that shipped with this software both Go & Go plus version ( called low and high by Toyota ) benefited with 3 years map care once this is over owners can purchase a one off update which does not get the map care offer or you can purchase an update including 3 years map care.

*Note all the software versions mentioned above assume your car has Go navigation if you do not then none of this applies

that will be because the activation code has been cracked rather than genuine Toyota-supplied ...

But you don't need to visit/buy from dealer as you can do it yourself online.
