SatNav Issues… A Japanese Invasion

In what must be one of the more ‘Unique’ product placements ever, Hitachi has used a US map for their SatNav systems. Look at the following graphic for the MMP-501. If you lool carefully you might just be able to work out where it is from. The Web Site for the product does not have this issue, but the manual most certainly does.

This photo is from my camera phone so I am sorry for the quality. Now look at the following map from Google Maps.

Guess where this is from? Pearl City. So, where is Pearl City? It is in Hawaii, on the shores of Pearl Harbour. I am sure that a Japanese company like Hitachi could have chosen a better destination for a SatNav system.
