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.:grin:

I am the owner of a Japanese model with the right wheel. G-Equipment.
I also have no rear window wiper.
You cannot change language on Japanese models that are destined for the domestic market. My radio is not regular, is a Japanese Clarion. The radio is also impossible to change the language. I partially translated the Japanese manual and use the radio on Japanese language. The quality of work and sound Japanese radio is very good.
There is a USB port and two slots for cameras.
But even in regular stereo systems on the Russian forum were taken out of the USB port. Perhaps in your radio USB port in the glove box or is there a connector in the back side.
Can you show a photo of your radio to be specific?

And in the Japanese model, no spare wheel, only a repair kit.:(
I bought a used spare tire from the Prius of Fielder and expanded center hole.

Hello,

I saw this reply and it really helps!

I also bought a 2010 in Dublin.

You mean I can take it to official HONDA dealer to have it checked for the recall?

Please PM with all mods and custom solutions you did in Ireland. It will be of great help!!!

I cannot stand the Japanese stereo and dash messages... any solution?
