 PLEASE NOTE: carefully look at the pictures and make sure your unit physically looks exactly the same to be converted. If you're unsure, send us an email to check. (Mark X unit to be converted MUST be the HDD version with Icons that look the same as in the pictures, the older square Icons are not the same and it does not apply).


**** WANTED ****

HALF PRICE CONVERSION in exchange for correct Mark X for Beta testing and photo shoot, car will be required for approx 4 - 6 hours, Christchurch local only, first in, first served!!


Easily read the menu systems and set everything properly, almost as if it was NZ new specification, and access menus just like:

  • Bluetooth Handsfree setup, including phonebook etc

  • Trip information

  • Vehicle service reminders

  • Display/Screen settings

  • Lexus park assist screen (if fitted)

  • Full use of HDD music if available in your car

  • All other screens are all in English ( see pics for more )

  • Navigation & setup also all in English, however NZ navigation/maps not available, yet!

  • Language option also includes Spanish and French

  • Still works perfectly fine with a band expander for FM radio in NZ

How do we do the conversion? Simple! A few tools and a little know how, and using some easy to follow instructions, remove the nav/audio unit, remove the Hard Disk Drive ( HDD ) from the back, carefully wrap it up and send it to us with your vehicle make/model and registration number. We will apply the conversion, and send it back to you to refit, easy!

Christchurch Local? No problem, for $49 extra we can do the entire job for you.

How long does it take? We try and do it as fast as possible, so we aim to have every conversion back on an overnight courier to you within 1 business day, or less! (may take longer for rural delivery/outer area, within North & South Island only). And we’ll courier it back to you, FREE OF CHARGE!

What DOESN’T it do? Navigation for NZ is currently not able to be adapted, but we’re working on it!  If you’re interested, when we are able to do this, we can let you know the additional cost for the genuine Lexus/Toyota licensed software, but you will have to send the HDD back to us again for reprogramming.

The factory Bluetooth system hardware doesn’t support audio streaming, just phone handsfree operation.

Currently the clock (GS model only) has missing text on the clock screen buttons, but you can still press them and easily adjust the time if required. TV function becomes not available, but the Japanese version didn’t work here anyway. This conversion doesn’t change the instrument cluster/speedo, just the audio/navigation/ac unit. This changes the unit to similar to NZ spec, so functions that were used only in Japan become unavailable, i.e. G Book, which either do not work or don’t apply to NZ, or the rest of the world!
