I bought this 2010 Toyota Corolla Axio GT TRD in the Uk today. It is a Japanese car that has been imported second hand here. The car is excellent, no other words for it, it is extremely responsive while accelerating, steering and breaking. It also has a reverse camera that shows what is behind my car on a display

Now here is the one problem I have. The car is supposed to have a GPS navigation system, it works but the only problem is that the touchscreen display shows everything in Japanese. How can I change this to English?

The navigation thing is on the big screen.

Of course not, but don't expect a good shot, I only have my laptop for a camera. As I'm living on a tight budget here, even my phone doesn't have a camera.

Thats a great car you have there. Will look stunning in Black. And this version looks a million times better than what we have here. And no matter about the quality but like everyone else said, pictures please.

And regarding your problem, are there any manuals which came along with the car?

Re: New Toyota Corolla. Excellent but One Problem.

Funny this should come up now. A mate of mine recently got himself a Nissan Elgrand from Japan and it came with the pre-installed Japanese maps/navigation.
Well, over here in Australia we took it to a audio/speaker install store and they swapped the maps over from Japanese to English
