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?

    • Hi Guys, my car issues seem to be going from bad to worse and I’m hoping someone can offer some advice. I’m a Brit and have asked for help on the Brit forums but they’re not as active as they once were.    To save my thumbs I’m just going to copy and paste my posts from the Brit forum. I hope this isn’t considered lazy or rude:- 1st post…… For a while now my dash warning lights on my R34 GTT have been coming on. All of the them. When it happens the car runs like a bag of s**t. I pull over. Turn the car off and back on and the problem goes away. It doesn’t happen again for ages and then all of a sudden the dash lights up and the car is struggling. This has become more and more frequent and it’s now pretty much undrivable. I need to sort this out but don’t know where to start looking. A quick search around the forums and I’m thinking maybe coil packs but I don’t want to just change parts for the hell of it. 2nd post…… Ok the latest in the saga……. I decided to replace the spark plugs and coil packs to eliminate them as the problem. I figured they were over 20 years old and could do with being replaced anyway. I’ve just been out to have a go at changing them but the car won’t start. It turns over fine but won’t fire. I had a replacement CAS here so have swapped that out but it still won’t fire. Pretty sure I’m getting fuel to the injectors as I can smell it! Any ideas? Should the coil pack harness have a constant 12v feed once the ignition is on? Can I test this just by putting a meter across the + and ground pins? Is there a relay or something that should give the harness power once the ignition is on? Any ideas/advice would be appreciated. I’m at my wits end. Don’t know where to start looking really???
    • Hi guys, im a Brit who’s been using this forum for a while. I’m after some help so thought I’d come on and introduce myself. my name is Paddy and I’m an old man (46)! I own an R34 GTT in cloud white. Had it a good few years and do enjoy driving it! Also enjoy the attention it gets.  for those of you who are interested I’ve posted a couple of pics. Not the best pics in the world and they seem to of come out worse than the originals but you get the picture   Will post my issues in the relevant forum. I hope you guys can offer some advice.    thanks. 
    • Started installing the meth kit last night, managed to get it mounted so I could still access the awd resevior. Battery is located on other side I figured this was a nice spot for it. Cheers mates.
    • I saw the E in the model number and stopped thinking. Might not be correct there.
    • As soon as I come on boost that rear housing area, along with all the stuff connected to it will get pretty toasty and I'm not the type to race for a whole 10s or so 😘
