Folks,
My sincere apologies for bringing this up again but I do need your help. I have read a few posts on converting the jap audio visual stuff on GTs from jap to English but here in London, I am not clear if anyone actually does this?
Can you please point me in the right direct re-this conversion?

Many thanks
DB:)

As far as I'm aware although it's been done, there's no one currently doing this.

I think it ended up being more expensive so people just swapped the jap stuff out for new aftermarket.

I have Jap TV and have found how to link in via aux cable from jap TV tuner in boot.

So it is possible to run UK tv / DVDs / etc

It really depends on what you want to achieve

Many thanks Piranha. I just want audio visual system that I can relate to and understand. And if I have to change out the whole system, so be it...

I think changing it out is the best bet.

I have taught myself the jap buttons that I need to use for the basics but eventually I will swap out for aftermarket.

Be aware that the heater controls are part of the stock stereo surround.

Not sure if you plan to diy fit aftermarket,
I haven't tried it yet but some research I have done has led me to believe it's not a good idea to totally rip out the stock system because it's all interconnected to the canbus system.

So do some research before wading in.
