Displaying chinese characters?

Anyone know if there is a way that the unit can display Chinese characters? Will they have software updates available for this? Most of my mp3s are in Chinese.

Wht sort of equipment do u have? Prof nav or i-drive+no nav?
AFAIK only cars on sale in PRC/ROC/HK/MAC markets have country specific units displaying trad chi+simp chi characters.
