Oh man, I'm a day late on my post. I just found Blinky. I've got to read my emails more often! And I should have used the Garmin calculator to figure out that Dec 14 plus 12 days equals Dec. 26.

Hmmm.

They don't have a contest currently going on, but you can submit vehicle ideas. Each month they create a new vehicle based upon the ideas submitted.

Next up...A plow

I think we got robbed by two days. Blinkie vs Twinkle and Red Rider vs Holiday Hauler. They are just too identicle. He must have been pressed for time!

The plows nice!

I see what you mean about twinkle and blinky.

The heck with setting my Garmin up with a snow plow ... I could use a real SNOW PLOW here today (to clean up yesterday's and last night snow storm.)

No way! I really like how Blinkie blinks as you're driving.

Al Valanche was more fitting for my drive today.

Shredded tree

Did you also notice that they loaded the tree on the roof of Red Rider backwards? All your limbs and needles will be shredded by the time you get home!

Higher math can get quite complicated.

server error

maybe it's the weather here in the NE

maybe it's high traffic volume, but I can't access that page ...

oh well, we'll try again later.

or try this ...

You can try this:

go to Garmin.com, make sure it knows you are looking for the USA site.

Look at the links at the top and find Extras, click it.

Look at the page and find the GOODIES section near the bottom. Click the first option there, Garmin Garage.

On the page that it takes you too there will be a small section marked "quicklinks" on the right hand site near the top. In that section, click on "All Vehicles".

thanks, but ...

thanks, but I did know that. it seems there is some issue going on at the moment that is preventing me from accessing much of the Garmin site.

Thanks for the info. I

Thanks for the info. I hadn't been to the Garmin Garage for quite a long time. There's lots of new stuff.

Day 7 - Frank

Frank the Christmas Ball (a blue ball) is posted.

there is a new vehicle on the garmin site ... an airplane named Blue Baron.

however, it is not listed as Day 8 of the 12 Days series in the garmin blog .... so, not sure if this is really Day 8 or not!?

Hi djs, It's listed under the Holiday Bundle which might make it part of the 12 Cars of Christmas Series.

Looks to me that the Blue Baron carries the roundrel of the Korean People's Air Force. Maybe it's made for M*A*S*H fans and is a nod to 5 O'Clock Charlie?

They are getting better with their designs and colors.

>getting better

Yeah,but if they really want to make my Christmas, Garmin should design some realistic looking cars ... instead of the cartoonish type stuff.

I mean, I'd love a simple "stock" pick-up truck with a topper on the bed.

I realise Garmin's position is potential trademark problems if their vehicles are recognizable.

But hey, I would also think the cartoon company's would complain about Garmin getting into the cartoon (vehicle) business.

Create Your Own?

CB,

Sometimes to get exactly what you want you have to do it yourself. If you 'really' want a pickup truck with a topper on it look for other threads (there are several recent ones) showing how to create your own vehicle icons. You could even have your own truck (assuming you have one) on the screen without a lot of effort.

Cheers
