    the bird man is a Nissan "BIRDVIEW" satelite navigation system, made by" xanavi "the vehicle is a Nissan import, called "elgrand" 1998 model.

    I simply need to know A. can it be converted with software to be used in an english speaking mode, and where might / should i look for stuff to make it funtion, it is in an intergrated console, with pop up screen, and there seems to be a gizmo under the l.f. passenenger seat, that takes a cd and a remote control that is directed, i think at a gadjet on the dash.

    1998 means old technology, but before i biff it !!!! would like to be certain, that it is not useable. do your best Mr Guru.

    CHEERS AND BEERS, POITER

    Your engine is a VG33E same motor is seems as used in Pathfinders here in AU. I found a great guide on changing the timing belt, the parts needed, and the kit, belt partnumber here


    For the disl for the nav system, you can try getting a download of the disk from torentz

Nissan Elgrand Where can i find an English onwer's manual Book and English Navigation system Book for 1998 Nissan Elgrand Model?


There is an article on eBay by a1benz about this. He claims the factory fitted Navigation system can not work in the UK or Europe and he fits replacement systems. He says that CD player will only play DVD's if they are navigation discs and will not play DVD movie discs (Is this due to the Region settings on the player perhaps?)
It is also worth noting that the TV system is NTSC not PAL so anything you try and plug into it will need to have the output set to NTSC!
I have found a supplier offering English Navigation Discs for v6 and v7 of the Nissan XANAVI system but unfortunately I don't know what Elgrand system version is.

Petrol not running properly from the petrol tank to the engine on a nissan primera


check your sending unit on top of the tank. Check for 12V with key in ON pisition. If 12V is present, look at the connector in sending unit it self. Inside of connector corrodes, causing no power to the pump. No power to pump, no gas in engine. Good luck
