GPS question

A friend of mine is moving to Japan in August and he thought a GPS unit would be helpful. The only thing is, all of the software he's found for Japan is in Japanese and not English. Anyone know where he can get Japanese maps in English? Thanks.

Japan got the best GPS system in the world but they all are in Japanese.Each time I rent a car I have to input the place I want to go and it's all in Japanese.There is no English maps as far as I know for GPS in Japan

He's moving to Tokyo to start an LLM program (masters in law). Basically, he just needs to get around the city and elsewhere.

I'm surprised that there is no English language GPS over there, given all of the business travellers and tourists.
