Default New Guy from Ireland

Hi there, I'm the new Guy.
Just got me a white 2009 Insight fresh from the boat.
Obviously a Japan model.
Now I have a few questions:
1) how do I Change the language of the instrument Cluster to english?
2) it comes with a double-DIN satnav/DVD/stereo/TV/reverse Cam unit. Any chance to Switch that to english?
3) Strange kit: No rear wiper, No USB, but external video in???
4) Any essential Modifications? I rear about soundproofing....
Thanks given for having me...

But when I get rid of the SatNav, the reversing cam is also gone,isn't it?

Any clue about switching the dash to English?

Tnx,

Corkonian

Car should have the latest version, but I'll have that checked. Johnson&Parrot or any other Honda dealer?
Don't know about Airbags. Importer says he doesn't know either. Again Johnson&Parrot? Since it's an official Takata recall, they should not make a fuzz, or would they?
CVT oil and filter change already requested. Hope they don't just say it's been done ...

Hi welcome I'm in Wicklow, To answer your questions

1) how do I Change the language of the instrument Cluster to english?

There is not way to change it to english AFAIK

2) it comes with a double-DIN satnav/DVD/stereo/TV/reverse Cam unit. Any chance to Switch that to english?

Again because it was a Japanese radio chances of it having English are slim.

3) Strange kit: No rear wiper, No USB, but external video in???
the video in is probably aftermarket

4) Any essential Modifications? I rear about soundproofing....
No mods needed jsut make sure the CVT oil is changed.
