The Journey Logger will log your journey in 3 ways.
When "ON" is selected, it will log each sim you travel through (giving you a message in chat to confirm, like this: [14:22] Journey Logger: ✔).
Manual will log more detailed information about your location and only each time you select it. It logs the time, sim, position and parcel name.
You can also collect slurls using the relevant button.
There are options in the memory to view the Manual readings, slurls, totals or list all. When "list" is selected, it will automatically stop logging, though it won't reset the list unless you select "reset".
The script will reset itself on rez and is always off when you rez it. You may sometimes notice a slight drop in vehicle script performance when it is on due to it's nature, but in the off mode it will have no noticable effect in any aspect of the vehicles performance.

Suspension is only active in off-road mode. The suspension reacts to terrain and can cause problems if used when driving on prims, so if you need to low gears and tight steering from off-road mode to negotiate small places when driving on prims, please use the override @ (touch)menu > Extras > Susp off. Also note that the suspension is dynamic and more active when on extreme terrain, so small undulations will affect it little.
This vehicle can be driven in mouselook, you will find a mouselook button at the bottom of the screen.
The reverse gears change at the same time as the forward gears (reverse gears in OFFROAD mode only), so for example, when you are driving forwards in 5th, your reverse speed will be the same. The reason for this is to aid in reversing out of a nose-down-hole situation.
Although you can enter the "On Tow" mode while driving, to resume driving after you must un-sit and re-select "drive" from the pie menu. This means that if you want to remain seated while being transported by a friend, you can do this. Please also be aware that Homestead sims have depreciated physics properties, so carrying vehicles may not work as well as normal sims.
