Are you in NZ? I am sure it can be done in Aussie as long as you are willing to pay big money for it. The closest I have seen in NZ is this add-on system that you can find on trademe but it's costs $1600 to install plus another $200 if you want usb connection!

Sounds abit too much in my opinion.

this looks like the add on boxes out of china. so its not a fully integrated solution by the look of it.

the later cars need a main controller and buttons from a Q60. job done.

Yeah you can see in the photos its running Android (which is pretty cool in its own right), probably with a hardware screen overlay to intercept screen touch

Hi guys, 

I'm looking to buy a 2008 nissan skyline 370gt v36. It's an import with navigation system and stuff in Japanese. That's fine, but since I have never owned an import car before, I would like to know if spares are readily available in WA? Or in the eastern states? Anyone does language conversion in WA? I've read about xanavi but is it worth it?  I'm getting an inspection report done as well. Anything I should keep in mind when I go have a second look and drive? Your advice and help will be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks.

I know the thread is old but If anyone is interested I live in Palmerston North New Zealand and can change the Instrument cluster from Japanese to English in about 1Hour for cheap but am yet to work on the media display (nav). Or if I'm busy there is this guy at https://www.navi-solutions.com/ who can do dash and nav systems.
