Cannot connect to the internet with Toyota Touch 2 Go

Recommended Posts

Hi, hoping someone can advise.

I have a 2017 Prius Business Edition+ with the Toyota Touch 2 Go system. I cannot get it to connect to the internet via my phone.

My phone connects via bluetooth no problem for 'phone' and 'music (and works as expected), but as soon as I select the connect for internet option, it will try for about 1 second, then just come up with "Sorry connection has failed".

I have mobile hotspot enabled as instructed - which works perfectly on my phone when I use it with other devices. I have also registered my car on the MyToyota page.

My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S8.

Does anyone have any advice?

Many thanks.

Yes. It is nothing to do with having a "mobile hotspot" enabled. Your phone needs to be tethering via the bluetooth link (see screenshot)

Thanks, I'll have a look and see if that's my 'problem' too.

Hi, I have paired 2 phones to my 2 different cars.

You have to make both devises, the car and the phone, open and search, for new devises, you only get about 3 minutes and your car screen with say do you want to pair with say Samsung Touch Touch and Go, just press 'yes' and it's done. Takes about 5 minutes maximum.

Good luck, Mike.

If Stuart had the same 'problem' as me, the phones were satisfactorily paired, in order to be connected for phone and audio - it's just that missing bit on linking

via bluetooth to the Internet. I'll have another go with my two phones and see if this solution will work for me too.

Hi all.

Thank goodness for this website to help each other.

The big minus is usually we live so far apart otherwise i'd come and do it for you.

Good luck to ALL.

Mike.

Hi All again.

If you have the facilities can you send a photo of your radio/sat nav and perhaps I can talk you through it via a phone call.

Regards, Mike.

You also should be able to connect to the mobile hot spot via wireless connection.

Tethering by bluetooth was the culprit for me, too.

 

Many thanks....

I wasn't aware that the Prius head unit has WiFi?

Yes, that's what I use when I'm near a hot spot or on the drive at home as I don't have a data plan with my phone.

Keith, what do you use the WiFi connection for?  I haven’t grasped the reason for it - yet.

My head unit connects to my iPhone hotspot automatically and as far as I can tell you get access to the Toyota Apps like Weather etc. and live traffic updates.

I thought it was going to give me a google earth overlay to the sat nav, but you can only get google earth images when you are stationary which seems pointless.

Also I thought the car created its own hotspot when connected, but from what I can tell people just jump onto my phones hotspot.

I may be missing other things I can do, but thats what I use it for.  I know I can connect to my home network from the garage, but I dont see the point of that.  Any data transfer for updates etc would probably be quicker using a USB stick?

Joe, I used to use it very occasionally for looking at the apps and downloading Nav routes created on MyToyota journey planner on my PC. The apps have expired now (apart from a couple of free ones I think) so I can only use it for downloading the routes, although as Stephen said it's actually quicker using a USB stick.

Hi.

To those that are interested via an app. on my phone I often use Waze as a route planner.

It's a free app. and is very good and fast at re-routing you if say there are roadworks ahead, a traffic jam etc, etc.

I find the Toyota's own sat nav very good but I think Waze is a tad better and the graphic's are excellent.

Regards, Mike.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
