You can only navigate the TOC when you export to PDF - and in InDesign you need to specify to make Bookmarks from the TOC dialog box.
InDesign doesn't have a function to navigate the TOC within InDesign.
My recollection is that the TOC bookmarks added by ID don't work inside the document itself, but I could be wrong.
You can add cross references in the TOC to go back to the actual headings, and those should survive export to PDF, even in a print version if you include Bookmarks and Hyperlinks. I'd wait to do it after the final revision of the TOC, however, or you'll just end up doing it over and over.

The Bookmark panel works fine. Just internal hyperlinks don't work.
Niels, enable Create Bookmarks when you generate your TOC.
I think we're saying the same thing. In the PDF the bookmarks work in the side panel, but they are not added directly into the TOC for navigation. Is that what you mean?

Um. It might be.
In the TOC Creation dialog, I enabled "Create PDF Bookmarks". This adds bookmarks, which are -- contrary to its label -- not just "for PDF", but appear as such in InDesign's Bookmarks panel. They also work inside InDesign.
If you do not enable "Create PDF Bookmarks", an automatic(*) TOC is automatically hyperlinked in a PDF (**), but the hyperlinks do not work in the InDesign document itself (***).
(*) It's not really as automatic as it could have been...
(**) Provided you export with all hyperlinks etc. enabled -- not one single preset has this enabled!
(***) Except in Presentation Mode for CS6.
You're turning my brain into a pretzel this morning...
