    Hey Jim hope you enjoy your Z51 as much as I did my 2015. First Corvette I ever had. Just moved up to the Grand Sport and love it as well. I'm the guy with the Z51 Rims for sale. New member getting use to this msg and email system. Enjoy that new ride!!!!

    Welcome Aboard!

    If you want to get updated maps for the nav system, Google "GM Nav Disc" and you should find the GM website that will sell you the 2016 version. With tax & shipping, a little under $200.
    Or you could look in the C6 Parts For Sale section on CF and perhaps buy a 2012/2013 disc for a lower price, depends on how much you want the very latest maps.
    I would avoid the fleabay disc copies that are frequently for sale, sometimes they work and sometimes not.

    For the best info on how to use your system, "talon90" has a website "The Red Lion" with a tutorial you can load into your laptop and learn in the car. Do it in short periods to avoid brain fade and running down the car battery.

    Hello sir. Jude Crawford. Purchased my first corvette about 5 months ago. c6 2006 base 3LT options package. 30,000 miles Nav system everything. One owner. I think it was you that posted about an update for the nav system ? I have all documentation from the origanal owner for the nav system. Both discs. This guy was meticulous. Any help on where I could purchase an update to the maps or what not would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time sir.

    2 3/16 in. 2 5/16 in. Rake left side 5/8 Rake right side 1/2

    2 13/16 in. 2 13/16 in.

    Fender to tire all look to be uniform.

    Rake is within 3/8-3/4 inch, which is what LG recommends at the jacking pucks location.

    I am tempted to try and get it closer but I know the cross adjustment will change. The right front is 1/8 in high. If it was the drivers side it would be better.

    Good to go? Or play with it some more?

    Jim I posted this in the tech section but I wanted to be sure to get your opinion....

    Chuck flew out of O'Hare a lot when he was dating a FA who lived there. Most of his trips though originated from IAD

    I flew TS2A/US2B as an IP and P3C Operationally

    Did you know a CB "Chuck" Coltrin? Chuck was also a Marine fighter and attack pilot F-8 and A-4. Chuck retired from UAL in '02 or '03.

    You had an excellent career. United will survive, but they will never be that wonderful Airline that did everything. They flew all the routes and they did a great job of maintaining their own aircraft. There was nothing they could not do from a maintenance standpoint.
