Question about Panasonic GPS
American living in Japan. Need to switch the pre-installed GPS unit from Japanese to English
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

SOURCE: change language
scroll down to see details of the 555.
However This unit is an ASIA only unit I dont think any maps for other countries are available. Try contacting SONY direct in your country to see if they can help you. There are equivalents for US and Western markets but they are not cheap!
Please reate my help++++ThaNks for using FIXYA

You need an operating system like iGO, TomTom Navigator or Sygic. For around 50 euro you can get the latest Sygic 9 with any maps.

hi I have a AVN52D GPS system and I had to have the motor replaced in my car. But now the GPS system does not work. It will only let me insert or deject disks. HELP

Using the Chrome browser, first go to Panasonic's International Website. THis link may help:
You'll see a pop-up at the top that points out that the page is in Japanese, and asks if you'd like to translate it. The translation is surprisingly good. Assuming that manual works for your unit, you can simply have the digital kanji translated online. It won't be U.N. Translator perfect, but it'll probably do the trick.
Similarly, Googe and Altavista (bablefish?) have translation programs, but since you need to get it into a computer, that's my suggestion.
Then there's always the thin possibility that calling Panasonic might yield a Customer Support person who can just send you to an english version.
Finally, I'd like to suggest that new GPS units are much better and will have a manual (and instructions) in a number of languages.
