HONDA INTERNAVI - English lang/software & operating instructions

HONDA INTERNAVI CAR NAVIGATION SYSTEM
I am in New Zealand. I have bought a 2007 Honda Crossroad imported from Japan. The car has an imporessive Honda Internavi Car Navigation System which intergrates Japanese GPS, mobile phone, reversing camera, audio, TV, DVD, CD etc on a touch screen and steering wheel control BUT all graphics and buttons are in Japanese script. Unfortunately the car didn't come with any instruction manuals. I want to know anything anyone else might know about the entire system, in English language please.

The audio system seems to rip CDS to a HDD.
The radio still receives a Japanese station
The TV picks up some local channels but only audio
The GPS still reads Japanese cities but is active, as if we are driving in Japan!

Plesae contact me if you might be able to help with providing English language instructions manuals, or information about how software might be updated to New Zealand GPS and English instructions.

Cheers experts!

In anticipation :)

Im in Pakistan with my Honda Insight 2011, Japanese import. No idea what the buttons say. It would be amazing if a Japanese person translates the buttons atleast.

Hi Peter, since there's no english language support in honda navi systems, my suggestion is to scrap the head unit and buy an aftermarket one. Kenwood or JVC 2-din units are compatible with Honda systems. If you have steering control, install SWI interface module (google: pac swi). If you have reverse camera, check that the player have CCD input. If the aftermarket unit have built-in GPS, make sure you load the map for your country. You can get a decent one for about USD400 (c/w CD / DVD / MP3 player and all those new stuffs).

    Will the reverse camera give the guide lines if we replace the original one by a JVC or a kenwood one?

I'll just add my voice to everyone else. I have a Honda Stream and can't find a suitable work around to the internavi system. I believe Honda Internavi could do a software update to include the english language as an option. Not sure if anyone in this forum is able to contact someone in R&D at Honda Internavi. Any feedback to any of the attempts made would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
