The conversion is still being worked on and I was told last week that we should see it around September. I am keeping every thing crossed in the hope of getting it sooner but stay tuned....

Cheers

Andy

June was the expected date but it is taking a bit longer than anticipated. The english conversion is not the hard part, it is protecting them selves against people doing multiple installs and not getting their fair return for all their work. They are creating a dealer pack that will allow them to control the number of installations from each disc.

I will keep you posted if there is any news of an earlier release. Trust me, I want the conversion as much as the rest of the M35 and V35 owners.

would still be a long wait, as the dates have now been pushed to September... so check back this thread in a few months time :thumbsup:

In the meantime, does the Navigation DVD ROM unit controls what comes out on the trip computer screen display?

Was wondering if chucking in a USDM G35 one would display some US specific trip computer screen?

from what I understand of this system, it would change the look of the information coming out. whilst it is all drawn from the same source it is the programmimg of the DVD rom that determines what info you see.

Does that make it worthwhile sourcing a G35 DVD-ROM unit? What are the differences?

no it does not. if all you want is the info in english - go for it. bear in mind there are 8 different boxes that go in these cars. if you know which one you have - try. bear in mind that they (USDM) are a DIFFERENT car than what you haev so you will lose a few features - TV being one of them.

rianto,

not worth your while. it will affect EVERYTHING on yours.

Hey Guys,

I am new to the forum, I am Australian but living in Singapore.

I am on the verge of buying a V36 up here there are about 10 on the road already and have been trying hard to figure out this software problem, lots of searching the net lead me to this graet forum.

Can I just confirm that the conversion will work on the V36?

Cheers

Final verdict is not for me to say but looking at how V36 screen is different to V35, I would likely be confident to say it won't work...

unless the company do another version for V36...

So in Singapore there was no infiniti dealership network? And the Nissan there didn't officially import a local version of this car?

Infinti does not exisit in SE Asia at all and you are correct, lots of Nissans on the road but no Skylines as Nissan did not bring it in.They bring in the 350Z Fairlady and possibly the GTR R35. Not great if you want a G37.

I'm in for this conversion (if I haven't already said so - too lazy to go back and see if I have already nominated) so whoever is keeping the numbers please please include me.

cheers

how can they restrict the use of a dvd upgrading firmware..unless they make it so you have to hook up some a specialised piece of hardware for it to work

dunno. I can't see that happening myself. probably why they are hesitant to let the code loose.

I know that with the earlier VDO/Blau nav discs you could copy them as many times as you liked. the later ones wont copy with out special software and that is only a torrent away anyway.

I exhausted most of my japanese options on this. I have yet to apply a consult 3 to one of these cars (and for the $9k ask I probably wont for a fair while.) yet. if I can convince a dealer here in brisbane to let me connect a car to theirs then I'll have a bit of a play. the aftermarket ones will not access teh earlier J2534 cars but it will access the later CAN based ones. that was a $7600 ask btw.

I have mules here so when I free up I'm going to grab one.
