Why isn't this a sticky?
Right on Talon , Thank You !As some of you know, I have written a fairly extensive tuturial with photographs and in PDF format for using the Corvette factory navigation system. The post here on the forum was lost when the site went down. I'm just recreating it for the archives and so that some of the new folks can get the benefit of the document.
As some of you know, I'm a proponent of the system in so much as it has a reputation that it simply doesn't deserve. It is not easy to use, this much is true. Is it as incompetent as some would lead you to believe, not by a long shot! I have completed six parts that encompass all aspects of using the system to get the most out of it. It is available on my website on the Tech Tips page. It is written with an index file and six parts of the tutorial. These can all be downloaded one at a time in individual files and it can be downloaded in a one document format as well.
Lastly, I have added a page to my website called Navigation. On this page, I have taken the tutorial that I have written and put it up in html format so that it can be viewed from a web browser. I find this useful for reference when I am away from home. I can access the page using my iPhone and look up a quick reference piece if I need it. Feel free to ask any questions that you may have on the use of the system.
I promise you that if you invest the time in this document you will have a much more gratifying and less frustrating time with the use of the system. Not to mention, you will see just how capable that it really is.
Greetings Bill,I can't seem to find the 4th section of the tutorial .pdf file. Is there a link somewhere that I missed? Also, is there a link to download the entire tutorial in one .pdf file? Thanks, you really put a lot of work into this valuable resource!
This is the first thing my dealer did when I traded my last vette. He actually mentioned it to me. I also never use my actual home address. I just use the street at the entrance to my community. I know the rest of the way home. :doh:I don't have the Nav unit myself but this is what was in Dear Abby today;
USED CAR'S NAVIGATION SYSTEM CONTAINS TOO MUCH INFORMATION
DEAR ABBY: I bought a used car with a navigation system last week and noticed that the previous owner's information was still embedded in the system. Abby, I had that man's home address, the addresses of his friends, his bank, his workplace -- every place he had gone.
Please inform your readers that if they sell a car with a navigation system, they should first delete all of their information. Car dealerships should also be aware of this and, perhaps, erase the information from the system as part of their vehicle inspection. -- JENNIFER IN LEE'S SUMMIT, MO.
DEAR JENNIFER: Your letter raised some eyebrows among me and my staff, so we canvassed some of the used car dealerships in the Los Angeles area. They're already aware of it. Those we spoke to stated that they are not legally required to delete information from a navigation system, and all agreed that the seller is responsible for removing the information before selling the car.
I am sure many readers will thank you for the warning.
