Random japanese shouting


Recommended Posts

Hi all

we just collected our rear converted 2005 alphard. Can anyond help us stop the japanese lady shouting at us randomly? Sometimes she shouts before we drive off, sometimes whilst driving. Clearly if she is shouting about something important we peobably need to know, but otherwise we would prefer her gone!

Hi, I had the same, mine was going on about the etc card/sat nav. I managed to find the settings using the Google translate app and clicking on the camera icon, hold up your phone to the head unit and you'll find it eventually! There's a long list that came up with donotdo next to each, think I just clicked them all to one side. Good luck 😁

HI Meld I live in very narrow lane area and get her hollering a lot if I'm to close to something like a hedge ect. I can only assume she's telling me to close. Also if someone parks to close to you in a car park(front,side or rear she will shout) Not a good idea to disable which I found out when I caught a brick wall. Take care Godi.

Good luck Gordi😁

Thank you for all your help…. Google translate is amazing and we are down to a friendly warning on start up. 🙂 Shame she doesn't shout if you leave your handbrake on going up a steep hill…..

Hi ALL!

First post ever, be gentle with me.

Got myself an Alphard under a week ago, 8seater(originally 7seater) 2006 2.4-hybrid. It's got original head unit, can't speak Japanese and frankly too old to learn it! Is there no body in uk who can change the head unit without losing other functions?

Thanks

Hi Abdul. Welcome to the Forum.

 

More reading required on your part.

One of the main topics in this Forum is replacement of the head units.

Search and read.

 

The main risks are losing the front cameras, if you have them, and the steering controls.

Many don't care about the steering controls or front cameras.

 

I will use the front cameras until I get used to the size of my Alphie.

In my view, the rear camera is essential.

 

Although my steering controls all work, I don't use them.
