GPS and ETC Installation
The roads in Japan can be tricky even for those of us who have been here for a long time. A navigation system will always be a useful item to have installed in your car even with maps apps on your phone as the screens are quite small. The systems have been greatly improved over the years with quite a few models coming with partial English or full English.
We will be able to advise on which systems would be most helpful to you. If you already have a system installed in your car we are able help by explaining how to best use it.
Electric Toll Control System
The ETC system is great device to have installed in your car. This greatly reduces your time on the highway as you will not need to stop at every toll both to pay the operator. We are sure the less coins you carry the faster the car moves as well.
The newer models of cars usually come with an ETC system already installed.
Not sure if your car already has a unit installed? Please ask us and we can tell you how to check.
To use the ETC system you will need to request an ETC card from your credit card issuing bank here in Japan. They can usually send one out to you in a few days.
