    Yup the language does'nt change.. As far as the features are concerned, OEM ones have hdmi input, blutooth and can handle all sorts of digital playback in mine thats what ive found out on net.. Pioneer has some very decent units in 70k range as well but then again one has to compromise a bit on the interior aesthetics as OEM Honda and Gathers from Honda are specifically designed for their interiors according to models .. All in all i suppose its a personal judgement and preference call. I decided to stick with OEM Honda despite language barrier ..

    Still can use the google services as they are now capable of translating with point and translate in real time. Any buttons on the unit it self if Japanese can be written over with English by making a sticker or so. Still for the software if its like android based some one can like boot an English version or get the files translate and then load it up after moding like a boot IMG. Still even if not android based someone could always just make a English version like it is just operating system somewhat firmware too but bare with me when I say "how hard can it be".

    Salam, first of all heartiest congratulations on your buy. Allah Mubarak Karay. Second, please share initial impressions, model,grade, trim, and price of your ride for everyone's knowledge Coming to your query, im afraid the language on the navi cant be changed. you ll have to memorize the key components by using Google translate or something ..

    An apparent hitch emerged last evening when hawkzel was about to be loaded for freight. Her blouse has gone missing ;p On a more serious note, another vezel came with mine and the shipping company took off their bonnets as a precautionary measure to avoid any damage during loading/unloading and put them on a separate container. The shipping company is being contacted right now in japan to locate hawkzel s bonnet. This is the first time ive heard such a thing. People related or involved in this field might be able to explain this situation if its a normal thing or not. Any help would be appreciated PW s .. Thanks

    Oh, no need to get scared bro. Apparently, the bonnets of few vehicles were kept in a different container and since so many containers arrive in a single ship, so lack of information lead to this unforeseen scenario. Since you pay for the shipping including insurance, hence its the shipping company s responsibility to take care of these things. And needless to say, this happens very rarely indeed..

    Vezel must be a beauty and is a instant hit. I have started to see so many in dha already. Your choice is amazing MashAllah.
    Can you tell me how different is this technology from the one in Toyota " Hybrid Synergy Drive"?
