Smile Smile when you say that!

I take exception to that! There are a lot of people UNDER 50 that don't know how to use a signal light (easier than the I-Drive) so I don't think that age is a criteria for using a computer program.

Thanks! I did a search and probably didn't use the right words. These older links have a whole lotta knowledge! Now I can use the radar detector as "a reminder" to slow down.

I don't think that the phone that originally came with the car has the same technology as current phones. Go with the BTUM so you can use almost any bluetooth phone with it. They're on ebay $150-$300.

Answered my own question.

I should've checked the manual. I just went to the settings and was able to reset the MPG to zero. I'd like to thank you for your concern. I'll check the book more often.
