That's not true ,there was one exactly like it recently on E'bay or a similar Auction Site, I let it go because of the Japanes'e Language display ,since i can't afford a Japanes Girlfriend .
If i find one in English i will go for it instantly .
I (we al ,i guess ) must envy "Haku" , he can understand it ,English or Japanes's and no Girlfriend needed , lol
Ciao

That is not exactly right...

If you car hand not come originally with this option,
A list of components and wire harnesses all other modules, to get it integrated with you original equipment would be impossible to get. Just a unit alone will not wok buy it self, it's not something that you can just connect buy using a plug that is just magically lying there behind your radio and climate control.
But if you were lucky and can fined a complete unit with all components to get it properly installed then an English language switch would be just a meter of correct programing.

My GPS the first one that came with the w140 exept for the Japanese ones. Was in German, but by holding in a button you can acces settings and then switch to English. I haven´t been able to do this yet because I need a disc for my country. But when I bought the car there was a german voice think it was woman saying I was driving off road (Cause I weren´t in Germany the only place the disc works) =)
The disc I need costs about 200$ and I have more important stuff to buy for the car, but someday I wil get it.

Regards

Even if you could get the system to go into English mode, why would you want it? These are nothing more than a conversation peice (like my analog factory installed phone). They are useless for navigation. A $100 Garmin can do more then 10 of those units combined. Its like trying to run Windows 95 in your car. Old-skool.

I think the only value would be for the dash insert then what you could do would be to adapt the climate control over to the standard W140 face lifted display mount it down low and then install a touchscreen GPS, that would be pretty sweet.

Well, I would never run any Windows software in my car, but I can assure you,
that the APSI,II or IV does its job by giving correct guidance and turn information.
Audibly, by slightly muting the music and laying voice on top along with simple graphics.
We may not have very complex road system here in Norway, but yes, it does work
for navigation!

The navigation discs for APSI,II and IV, is Teleatlas non-DX. Heres an image
of my previous APSIV (in a garage...);



Now, beat that look with a Garmin... ;-)
