Elgrand E51 Series 3 2008 & 2009 HDD systems and Elgrand E52 2010 to 2016
With this great value upgrade, you can view in English many of the functions you've wanted but can't understand in the system menu!
DVD audio/movie/image control
HDD music (Music Box) control
Fuel economy/Trip info
Vehicle settings (camera, rear entertainment screen + others)
DVD video control menu
(** Please note - The Rear Entertainment Screen is a separate unit in it's own right, and the conversion doesn't change it's language **)
**NEW** - now has modification for the clock to change it for any country!
The update is done by DVD or Compact Flash, we create the files for you to download and burn to disc or copy to a Compact Flash card and insert into the car.
To do the conversion, all we need is 2 screen shots of your system and the last 6 digits of your Chassis No.
The conversion is quick and easy, and only takes 3 minutes.
What is the process?
After we have the details, we create the files and upload them. We'll send you the link to download, burn the files to disc, and update your system. Usually we can have the update ready in a few hours!
Do we do navigation/maps?
No, maps/navigation is not converted with this update. Why?
Modifying the Japanese firmware to run maps in other regions is too difficult. Legitimate maps also need to be licensed, and unfortunately they are too expensive to license per upgrade.
On top of that, they are out of date, by years.
Another reason is because we use original Japanese firmware for our conversion, so there are no hardware problems, software problems, glitching or freezing.
We recommend Google Maps on your phone, it's free, and constantly updated.
Some Japanese only functions do not work outside of Japan. Most of these may be in English but some menu items are not fully translated, for example Carwings, VICS Traffic & Weather info, and live Operator services.
