Question about Furuno FA50 AIS50 Class B AIS Receiver

Open Question

Our Furuno AIS FA-150 will not let us change type of cargo (cargo type & crew). Crew numbers can be changed but when trying to change type no., "OUT OF RANGE! TYPE NO: 10-99)" text appears. But we can set numbers from 0-9 even CursorPad is working. Left arrow will not work in this section. When putting f.ex. number of crew it is working.

SOURCE: Ais and 1920c Furuno chart plotter

n the system setup, under “UNITS” I set BEARING to “MAG” (magnetic). This will cause the unit to display course / bearing information in relation to the Magnetic North and match magnetic compass readings. It is not the same as True North! One has to be careful with this setting. There are a number of areas where the earth's magnetic field is locally disturbed, sometimes very significantly. Your GPS may not account for it. - again, under “UNITS” I set “METRIC”.

Trying to find a stock replacement 3rd brake light / cargo light for my 2002 Silverado 1500 HD Crew cab. All i can find is LED's online. Is there a part number?

Why do you not want LEDs? I assume you have tried your local GM dealer. You may have to go to a auto recycling yard (junkyard) and get a used one.
