It's easy to update. Just get a cable with a usb and serial end and you're set.

How long did you plan the total trip out to be? I always wanted to do something like, 1 week to drive there, a week there and maybe another week back, stopping at various cities. Are you switching off on drivers? That A LOT of driving! lol

Going there it's two days. Coming back leaving LA it will be around five days.


Yea, if you look a few posts back I have a pic with the route going and coming back. I do one point to point sprint, he does the next and vice versa switching.

Every summer for the last nine years I've driven out to LA and back, taking around 1.5 months for the whole trip. Different route each time, and trying to avoid interstates in many cases to see the scenery. I'm the only driver; gf does not drive stick.
Ask me if you ever want to know what's where or what the best scenery is.
