I found this site just by goggling and it looks interesting.
I was given a used escort 9550ix (used, no box and no internet key, GREAT condition) for Xmas.
It wired right in to my old passport hard wiring fine.
Never did use the GPS/computer stuff.
This weekend I was rear-ended in my 4Runner by a 3/4 ton pickup.
The escort wasn't secured enough to the velcro on my dashboard (obviously), because it flew into the steering column, cracked it, and fell on the passenger side floor.
There I had 6, standard concrete blocks there that literally smashed it......to pieces.
I already checked the serial number with escort in late December and it wasn't stolen....for sure.
In order to get the other drivers insurance company to anty up for a replacement, I gotta have a frapping serial number.
I'm NOT asking for yours or attempting to do ANYTHING illegal.
All I need to know is (please)...how are the SN's formatted?
If you'd give me yours with several digits left out, put in as X's for numbers and Y's as alpha characters, I could just fill in the blanks and give them something.
Example: If mine was 6 digits long and was A12345B, just send me YX2345B, and Iíll have what I need.
So..if you don't mind and have the time I'd appreciate a PM or email.
I canít email anyone because I am a newb at these boards.
Nor can I postÖ..yet, or I would have.
Iíd appreciate the heck out of a reply.
