I've got one but the console is in japanese. If anyone has a similar car who could give me a quick rundown I'd appreciate that.

Thanks :)

I have a Maxima, not sure what year, but somewhere around 2005.

I'm not sure what you mean by the console is in Japanese??? Do you have some kind of integrated display or something? I don't have that. I do have a user manual.

If you mean an in-dash GPS/Radio/TV/DVD system, be aware that most of the functionality is of no use in NZ.

I own a Teana 2006 - the console is in Japanese also. The Teana was only ever released in the Japanese/Asian markets, therefore you will not find any English ones. The best you may find is some variation where the first owner ordered some texts in English, though, very hard to find (I'm yet to find any)

The Teana is marketed here as the Maxima. I know most of the stuff wont be functional but I would like to be able to play with the sound system a little and things like that. I think I'll pop into a Nissan dealer and see if they can help.

How about looking for an online translator and take some images of the kanji?
I did this for some Korean I needed to translate a while back. Got close enough to
work out what I needed.
