Hi,

I'm a moderator for this topic. I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

My name is MIKE...

Im afraid with this - I am not aware, and I have checked in the data base too that we have, of any way that you can do that Im sorry to say.

The only way -and in fact , as people do, is to have the units changed for an English one - or type. It would be a case of searching on the net or via dealers for people that can actually help you in that regard - but Im afraid thats the case with this one ....

Im sorry thats likely not what you wanted to hear, but that seems to be the case with this -

Let me know if you need anything more on this at all -

Hi Mike,

 

Yes, that's not exactly what I wanted to hear :(

 

I don't have this car yet - just trying to estimate what I have to do and for how much to make it a bit more european user friendly.

 

The screenshots from the Estima Hybrid unit I've seen resemble screens from my Lexus RX Hybrid unit. Same or very similar graphics, icons, familiar touch-screen controls placement - just most of the texts are in Japanise. Hence I thought it is possible to switch Estima's units to other than Japan language - just like in Lexus I can select from few european languages.

 

Are you able to provide me with some English replacement units manufacturers reference ? And perhaps a few product numbers of different types of original Estima Hybrid unit's, and manufacturers of these?

Hi again..

Thank you for your reply.

I understand yes - I know where you are coming from.

Unfortunately though, I dont have that sort of info here - it would be a case of doing some research - on the likes of google etc maybe .or, an import specialist may be able to help you on that too - it would be worth looking up one of these as they likely have contacts for such work.... and they could give you prices etc and suppliers...

Im sorry I cant help you in that dept - that would be the best advise I could suggest there -

Best Rgds- MIKE.


Please do click on the OK ~ Excellent ratings service for me now at this point, as that is how Im credited for helping you -- Thank you..

NB - you can get back to me anytime if you need - clicking the OK ratings does not close you out at all.

Thank you..

Best Rgds - MIKE.
