I have just got a new Avensis with the Touch & Go satnav. From what I have found so far there is an application I have downloaded from Toyota which allows you to manage the device using a USB stick (after registering it all online). It looks as though it could be quite good but we will see if reality lives up to the hype.
The car puts a file on the stick which the app recognises. The stick can then be updated and put back in the car to update the unit. You can do this for updates and destinations.
So is any one familiar with this device?, what device have I actually got (TNS5xx)??, where are the maps stored, is it on DVD which I can eject or internal storage?, can you add extra POIs to the device?, I have downloaded the Glass of Water app (I think), how do I activate it on the unit?
Many thanks for any help. I am used to Tomtom but don't really want that stuck on the windscreen when I have a built in one.
Hi Where can i find version ??
I have downloaded via the link version1.7.4 and burn the iso on a disck
Wend to my car and go to update then it ask for the update disck ,i put it in and had during about one hour donds but the file is not updatet.
do you have a link for the H version so i can trye that one
The iso file you downloaded ('swdl.iso') should not be burnt to disk. Instead the file should be copied to the root of a USB stick formatted with FAT32. Power the device with the USB stick in it and the unit will then see the update (after a minute or so) on the stick and perfrom the system update. I do not think you can update from CD.
Just to be clear copy the iso file to the root of the usb stick, do not expand it.
