The TAS500 is not available in the UK so info will be limited on a UK based forum, however a quick look on Techdoc suggests the latest software version is 19.6.0 this is lited on a technical service bulletin:

TSB: BE-00233T-TME Version 1 16 Apr 2020
 
Subject: TAS500 Display Audio-unit - Minor Bug-fixes and Software improvements
 
Area of Application: All Markets
 
Models – Model CodesYaris - KSP130, NHP130, NSP131
 
Description of the phenomenon

Below overview lists the issues that some customers may experience and report, and which have been resolved in a subsequent Software-release.

TAS500 Software release EU_19.6.0

(Ex.g. press Home key and pop-up is triggered by pressing Volume via the Steering-wheel or Head-unit hard keys)

  • bluetooth PAIRING : bluetooth Device Search operation does not time-out when no device is present nearby.

  • TRANSLATIONS : Updated translations in Danish, Greek, Spanish, French, Norwegian, Portuguese, Swedish.

  • ASL : In some cases, a dip in audio can be noticed due to ASL-feature, especially at high speeds.

  • Apple CARPLAY : On start-up, with iPhone 8 connected and Car Play active, performing a reset of the phone causes the TAS500-system to reset. After restart, Car Play and Android Auto are disabled.

You need to register & pay for access here as it contains repair manuals etc but you can pay for access by the hour,day month etc and content is downloadable, to access Technical service bulletins:

Select repair > from Payable access Select Technical service bulletin, input VIN number or select model manually > select Search on the RHS then scroll through to locate bulletin number
