This post explains how to use the Toyota Real-Time Traffic information service available on Toyota Touch 2 with Go, and Touch 2 with Go Plus navigation systems.
The Toyota Real-Time Traffic information service helps you avoid jams and delays by offering up-to-date reports on traffic congestion and road closures.
The following video explains the process, with step-by-step instructions below.
First of all, make sure that your phone is paired with your Touch 2 system, and is connected to the internet. To find out how to do this, please see our post ‘How to pair your phone for calls, music and internet’.
Once your phone is paired and you are online, enter the details of your destination.
To activate Real Time Traffic reports, access the Navigation menu and press ‘TRAFFIC MESSAGES’.
Next, press ‘SETTINGS’ and select ‘TRAFFIC INFORMATION OVER INTERNET’. You’ll only need to do this once – once you have selected this option, your Touch 2 system will launch it automatically.
If you now go back to your sat-nav route, you’ll see that Toyota Real Time Traffic has been activated.
The red lines on the route denote a traffic delay.
On the left-hand side of screen you will see any traffic incidents that are on your chosen route, as well as the duration of the delay. You can also see the distance from your car to the actual incident. The total delay time on this route is displayed at the top of the screen.
You can see the details of all the incidents on your route by pressing the ‘NAV’ button and selecting ‘TRAFFIC MESSAGES’. If you select a specific incident, pressing the ‘DETOUR’ button will plan an alternative route tha navigates you away from the traffic delay.
