Well, the good news bought a magellan. So you get free updates. Garmin, and others charge upwards of $79-100 to get an update. As long as the routes you take dont change too much, or have any areas missing on your maps you should be fine.
On the other hand, If you live near a lot of new consrtuction, and/or are traveling out of town frequently, I would recommend the free upgrade you get with magellan, just in case of any new roads or changes in places you have never been before.
Hope this helps,

p.s. Sites like give great FREE updated and often user made POI's (points of interest) for your GPS which the other company made updates dont include.
i.e. on a recent long trip - I downloaded custom POI's for:
Rest stops
Weird Tourist stops
and National Parks

all available free from for most GPS's

Was there a bulletin issued to extend a warranty for spark plug wires, maybe #10250

Yes....10 years or 120,000 miles
Some customers of 2007-2009 model year Chevrolet Equinox and Pontiac Torrent vehicles equipped with a 3.4L engine (LNJ), and 2008 Chevrolet Express, Silverado; GMC Savana, Sierra vehicles equipped with a 4.3L engine (LU3) may comment about rough engine operation and the illumination of the Check Engine Light. This may be caused by spark plug wire boots that do not provide a sufficiently robust dielectric seal to withstand the high voltage required to fire the spark plugs.
Special Coverage Adjustment
This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 10 years or 120,000 miles (193,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership. Dealers are to replace all spark plug wires and, if necessary, the spark plug. The repairs will be made at no charge to the customer. For vehicles covered by Vehicle Service Contracts, all eligible claims with repair orders on or after January 5, 2011, are covered by this special coverage and must be submitted using the labor operation codes provided with this bulletin. Claims with repair orders prior to January 5, 2011, must be submitted to the Service Contract provider.
Vehicles Involved
Involved are 2007-2009 model year Chevrolet Equinox and Pontiac Torrent vehicles equipped with a 3.4L engine (LNJ), and 2008 Chevrolet Express, Silverado; GMC Savana, Sierra vehicles equipped with a 4.3L engine (LU3).

Year of Manufacture

Look on the label that is on the head stock of your unnamed motorcycle. In addition to the serial number, you will find your date of manufacture (which is not necessarily the model year of your unnamed motorcycle).

If this information has been removed (a violation of federal law where I live) you wll have to get this information from an authorized dealer. You have, of course, inspected your ownership papers, righ?

How to se what year model my vmax is from

Check your frame for your serial number. Where I live the date of manufacture must appear near the serial number of the vehicle. This plate or label typically on the neck of the frame, near the front, where the handle bar is attached. Where I live, this date of manufacture is not necessarily the the model year.

You could also check your owner manual, typically found in a small compartment behind the side cover on the left hand side.

You could check your vehicle ownership paper also. Since this is not typically an off road vehicle, there must be some registration paper associated with the ownership. Where I live, every vehicle has such a document. It may be different where you live ... just saying should be able to get this information from a variety of sources immediately available to you.

By the way, this bike was introduced in 2005 so it is not likely it was manufactured prior to 2004 if that is of any help to you.

HI. I nedd a code for a Ford Focus radio 4600 year 2006. serial number: M032993 2m55-18c838-aa thanks

You need to CALL THE DEALER and prove ownership and they will give you the 4 digit code. Not gonna find that info on here, sorry! The radio thinks its stolen ok, so the web isnt going to help you or anybody else that has that radio except for the dealer if you can prove ownership of the car that it came out of.

Info to reset date and time

The Display/Info menu controls how the keypad and display appear, including the clock, controls whether the time and date appears on the idle screen, sets the format of the time and date, and sets the year. But the actually time is internally controlled.....

We have just completely road worthied and resprayed our Toyota Supra. The plates were removed a year or so ago and now we want to get it registered again to sell, but we can't find the vin or chassis...

You have no registration on this car or a certificate of ownership? the VIN is on the ownership certificate. If you don't have the paperwork the VIN is located on a metal plate under the hood on the fire wall for pre 1989. You do not mention what year this Supra is so this is about as much info as is available.

Text is showing up when i review my picture

After you take a picture and while you are viewing the image press the UP or DOWN on the directional button... you will see that you can scroll thru several screens of image info. These are very helpful when doing pro shots and making sure the settings you have are proper for the effect you want. Scroll to the screen with just the date and time stamp at the bottom. If any of the other screens pop up in the future you know that you can just scroll thru again with the up or down arrows.

This camera has soooo much info that it's hard to remember everything. I had a D50 before this one and I'm still learning...even after a year of ownership.
