Question about Eclipse AVN5500 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

I have an Eclipse AVN5501D touch screen in my recently purchesed ex Japanese Ford Escape. My unit is in Japanese. I need an English guide book. Have managed to set everything except the time, but that has so far defeated me. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Thanks, but none of these are for the AVN5501D. Although similar, the displays are slightly different, but the difference may be due to the Japanese layout, and although it shows how to switch US time zones, I still cannot find a way to set to New Zealand time. The clock is currently set to Japanese time. I would have thought there must be a way to set this to a designated time without the navigation mode being operable so I can set this to NZ time. The navigation feature probably will not work so switching time zones will not solve the problem. Any more thoughts?

    Thanks. Looks like the only way to set the clock is by GPS.

Converting from Japanese to English (Eclipse AVN6606HD)

It is possible to do this, although it is not easy. It requires reprogramming the HMI in the unit. I have done this on my AVN6606HD for the majority of the functions I use and it would probably apply to other units to convert from japanese to english.

Eclipse AVN5501D DVD player doesnt work And if possible, can u tell me where to get english translations

what doesnt work the unit at all the dvd or the nav. it should be in english if you brought it in the US. If you ordered a japenese unit I think you may be out of luck. Look for a Eclipse dealer close to where you are and see if they will send it out for service for you. They usually help you out but charge you an arm and a leg for it since you didnt buy it from them
