Do your research

It can be done, in any state. But you will need to demonstrate that you have counteracted any measure that the manufacturer deemed not "street legal." My gues is this may get pretty deep. From...

Just don't go too hot

The hotter lights are better for some. Evidence that I've seen demonstrates that PIAA is much better at marketing, nothing else. As for temperature, if you go to the medium hot bulbs you will see a...

If he, as a new rider is stupid enough to not wear the proper gear then fine. But when that asshat puts other people in harms way by putting them on the bike then yes, he does belong in jail.

I think it's a default message

I get that when I don't properly map out a route and either leave a gap, or a cross, or maybe I've left a choice in the routes. The 2610 likes it's routes clean and clear.

Make certain everything is connected very tightly. The connection to the GPS is _very_ snug. If that doesn't do it, try another cable or USB port.
