Is350 Deleting Japanese Voice Prompts


Recommended Posts

I am in New Zealand and have imported a Japanese domestic market is350. It has a hard drive based sat nav package with japanese female voice prompts. Can anyone help in deleting these prompts or loading English commands ( it wontccept the NZ sat nav CD). Also I can't read the Japanese handbook and don't know how to integrate my mobile phone into the bluetooth functions. Buying a whole new system is very expensive and I would rather avoid it when I already have a reversing camera and Mark Levison stereo. However, I don't need Satellite Navigation.

I am afraid you have to purchase the whole Nav gadget, the drive as well as the DVD itself. I'd imagine the drive would not read English. The only people that may give you a real no-fee answer is the Japanese dealer you got your car from or may be Lexus Japan. Good luck.

You can turn off the voice prompts in the nav. That's an option on the menu. As for loading your bluetooth, you do that from your phone. It's more about what capablities your phone has not the car. I can help you but you have to have your phone with you.

The difficulty is the buttons on the left and right of the screen are in Japanese as is the handbook. Can you assist with the switch and the steps from there

Greg_hi,

Click on the following link and open the PDF file the go to page 2. Ther you can see a pic of the Nav sytem screen. Click on Menue button, number 2 from left bottom.

That will take you to next screen where the buttom "Suspend Guidance" is there

Click on the following link to see the Menu screen options

http://us.lexusownersclub.com/forums/index...ost&id=3770

the "Suspend Guidance" is the top left button. Click on it and it'll display a message for several seconds then it says--in Jap. of course--the guidance is suspended.

I recommend you download the English Manual from this site, color print it and I assume you can follow the pictures/illustrations.
