Sat Nav from Jpanese to English

Recommended Posts



Yesterday bought an Alphard (year of manaufacture 2005), reg in UK and converted to campervan  July 2018.
Please can anyone update me with the latest info on how to convert the Japanese language Sat Nav and main console to English?
This needs to be done without losing reversing camera and steering wheel controls that link to the central console.

Also need to be able to connect my Samsung phone by Bluetooth.
I have had a big quote of around £2000 from Cartronics and also heard rumours of the job being possible for £300. that is a big discrepancy.
Thanks in advance for any info.

You will need a new head unit. Its not possible to convert the existing factory fitted radio to english.

Some brands like pumpkin, xtrons etc do it with kits. Have a surf on the forum as people have posted wiring conversion kits on here.
