Are the NAV units the same in US/EU/Japan cars?

Mon Jul 24, 2017 9:21 am

Just curious if anyone's compared the NAV units in Leaf S for US/EU and in RHD (Japanese domestic market).

I own a RHD Leaf S and 'd like to find out if my unit could be flashed with english ROM from the same unit. The local workshop guy told me he had never seen such unit in US models like in my car.

I can read japanese, but sometimes it makes me mad its long sentences and menu options

In the US, Leaf S trim does NOT include nav system. It includes only a simpler stereo w/knobs.

SV and SL trims are required for nav. SV and SL have no knobs on the head unit.
