How do I get Google to fix incorrect information about a nonprofit?

I run a 2-year old nonprofit and the listing that Google created and displays for us on their search page is full of incorrect information that hurts our organization. It has our hours of operation wrong, it shows a picture of our facility that was taken before we were finished remodeling it, and it shows a logo that we don't use any more. How do these things fixed?

What is the best GPS Traffic Receiver?

My husband drives a Tractor Trailer. He has a Rand McNally TND 510, he bought a accessory for it - a Real Time Traffic Receiver that uses FM Radio Stations that currently uses 98 cities in the USA. He is disappointed in it, it doesn't seem to help him in traffic like he had hoped. What other GPS units would work better, if any, regarding traffic?

Hello! My mother recently started going through old things she has of the potentially-heirloom variety.

How can I get the best price for my clunker?

It's finally time for me to part ways with my 16-year-old car. I've picked out a new car, and had my existing car appraised for a trade-in.

Is it worth investigating other options for selling my clunker, or should I just take the dealer's offer? [Details inside] [more inside]
