    I have a feeling The HDX series was only for Japanese market and did not have multi language capabilities. There may be a compatibloe chip in the K series that can be applied by Kenwood in Australia. I suggest contacting their support for this and any other information

Sorry, but it's a Japanese-only unit and it cannot be converted. Kenwood never produced an export version. It's not just a case of reprogramming; it would need completely new firmware as well and depending on the country you're in the radio reception frequencies are all wrong as well (but that can easily be fixed). Even the DVD region coding is hard set and cannot be changed.

I had a pile of them in my back room which came from Japanese used car imports and the only thing I was able to do with them was to sell them back to a Japanese dealer for little more than the costs of listing and shipping them.

Honda crossroad RT2 user manual

I am in srilankan. I have bought a 2010 Honda Cr z 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 srilanka GPS and English instructions.

Cheers experts!
