V36 Nav And Language Swap - Faq


Recommended Posts

So, I was quoted $1600NZD+gst to change my Skyline crossover (370GT) system across to english, with everything working (except TV - of course) and NZ maps. This is from a guy in Auckland that seems to know what he is speaking about but I'm unclear if it's a hardware and software swap, or if it's just a software hack.

If it's a true new unit (and they don't want the old unit as part exchange in that cost) then I'd consider it... If it's just software then I think it's a bit rich. (I would BTW pay probably up to $750, maybe a grand, if it was purely a software update).

I'll think about it for a few days first. $1600 is a lot of money that I could have a lot of fun with elsewhere :-)

Cheers - N

Update: My auto sparky let me down, so Chris Rogers stepped in (thanks Chris). After trying a straight swap where (as I remember) all the connections fitted, it wouldn't boot up/switch on. Everything fitted perfectly :-( So Chris has done some research and it appears that my kit is from a 2010 AU Infiniti and has a different bus speed to my 2009 370GT. So it won't work. The good news for all you guys with a 2010 model is...it's a straight swap. Thanks Chris for trying. And thanks for the number of the guy who have made me an offer to purchase the kit off me. As soon as I'm back home (working away right now) I'll call him. So gutted!!! Back to the drawing board and interested in any info on this software upgrade available. Thanks everyone.

Yeah - the auction links expire... He still has the car for sale and now has performed the conversion on the car and has included screenshots of the english language system, including a shot of part of the Nav!

Some time ago I spoke to a laser etching place in the Brisbane area the idea being to remove black paint on existing buttons (either sand it down or remove with acetone) spray black dash paint over the top of existing buttons then re-etch English words over the top in matching font. I Never got around to doing it to see how well it would turn out, but the place said indicated it would work quite well.

Sorry to be maybe asking stupid questions, but I am thinking of buying one of these in the near future..

What exactly can you use on these systems as they roll of the boat???

I realise that all the buttons and menus are in japanese but can you even use the fm radio??

I have an 09 370gt sp and the FM works up to 89 which works on a couple of stations here in Cairns, also the TV tuner seems to pick up a station quite clearly but is audio only the picture is pure static. As far as bluetooth goes I have an old school nokia N900 that the car pairs up to very nicely.

You guys think this will work on JDM V36?

I love my v35 and the fact that i was able to put in an aftermarket stereo. Doesn't seem to be much aftermarket options for the V36 due to everything being integrated.

As usual, the switch gear looks horrible... But to be able to fit a modern double din head unit would be awesome...

However, I am guessing it won't play nice with JDM, especially when most of us have JDM OEM Nav... :rofl2:

Talk to Chris Rogers. I just fitted a fully functioning AU Infiniti system from the wreckers. Blu Tooth, USB, Sat Nav etc, etc. Also swapped out the dash cluster for English (2014 colours). SOrted. The car feels so much more that it did!!! Photos on his Facebook page. I think I may be the 1st in Aus to do this!!! :nyaanyaa:

Hi Space-Man, does the mirror camera still work with the AU infiniti system?

    • Thank you for sharing your experiences. I believe your post means nothing to anyone or any of the businesses you mentioned. It’s probably better we all thank these businesses for providing us with products and solutions that you see nowhere else in the world. They work hard to provide us with those solutions, don’t shit on it. A business like xanavi probably has the right to charge 1100 USD for an SD card upgrade for CarPlay on the GTR, better than going to Nissan to be charged 4000+ to just get done local maps update right? Considering the car is 200-700k, I think it’s all due.  How did you save someone 1000 dollars by linking the SD card upgrade and then linking an irrelevant product that they got the idea from? You’re misleading people. You’re then making someone think that the box does the job? You idiot.   About the lesser knowns, what makes you so sure that those businesses people aren’t appealing to customers in their location/market? (AUmark) You seem to not only have a problem with miscommunication but also not being able to read. I just jumped on nifty city’s website and it’s in your local currency, where did you get 1100 USD from? It says 699 USD, or 1000 AU (your currency). They also run discounts? Your peripherals need improvement.   Grom v line has been on the game for longer than you’ve had interest in the so called “Japanese market” that you know so much of.    This post is not really helpful to anyone in the market looking to buy a unit. Let people run their business and customers to decide for themselves.   Regards, An interested customer.   
    • Small addition to my post above. This morning I noticed my door ajar light was turning on occasionally when it shouldn't. I had a stray 8vdc being fed back from ground side with key out. After taking a closer look at the original cluster, I noticed nissan was actually aware of this as they added a diode. I tossed in a 1N4007 and it's resolved. 
    • New coolant overflow for the r32.the good old boys in blue that let me rip around with a 4” exhaust no issues at all. We got it good over here like that. 
    • Hey Ben those are some extremely wicked numbers for 22psi and the kill tune on e85 at 800 probably feels great. What are running for a gearbox? nice work mate glad to see the blue is working proper. Send me your base timing map when you get a chance I want to see how cranked up you got it over 16 psi, cheers
    • The little 10mm bolts are holding for dear life. 30 psi on ethanol/meth injection and things are feeling fricken spicy now! I hope the boost gods are with me at this power level feels like my face is going to the back of my head now.
