In danger of losing your windmill?
Maybe you can share with us the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you use it to seek out special places to go. (Like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.) Anything to keep your windmill alive.
This thread will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.
..Miami Beach Fla. Good trip but cold and windy.
to Marksville,La in the morining for a little R&R.
Route 66 trip and the POI are working great. I-40 through Oklahoma City is fun as the Garmin with the latest maps shows the road 6 blocks to the north from where the road really is. They moved the freeway and the maps do not match yet.
Same think happened on the turnpikes coming from Tulsa to OKC.
Just fun to watch for these errors but in OKC you might not find the freeway if listing to the Garmin.
Just got back from the Florida Keys. GPS worked perfectly the whole way down and back.
I, however, am broken hearted that we left.
Using mine more for ETA to my training courses, for work, in Mississauga, don't want to be late for class. Leaving 15 minutes late at my end could add an hour at the other.
We use our GPS as a routine, going to rather familiar places, but it really comes in handy when we decide on a particular place to eat, shop, or another route, for a change of scenery. Our last trip was to Brown Summit, NC. Decided to go cross country rather than the trafficky I-40 through Greensboro.
since we have family and friends here for the week
I had to go to a warehouse in Monroe Michigan for a business meeting, and got entirely confused as to where I was....one-way streets, dead-ends and a river going thru town that really cut off roads. I think I weandered all over town for about 45 minutes.
Then I remembered the Nuvi.
5 minutes later, I was at the warehouse!
and we didn't want to take any freeways to a mall we had never visited. Looked at a map and found the streets needed and used the Nuvi to warn of cameras and provide traffic info along the way.
...that I have nothing new to report!
To a meeting place at the north end of the metro area (I'm at the south end).
Handy to see how soon the intersections are coming up.
We were in Jacksonville, FL to drop off a solar panel for repair. While the manufacturer fixed it, we made great use of the Diners, Drive Ins & Dives POI file to locate the Metro Cafe for lunch. We had an excellent lunch, and picked up our repaired panel. The Garmin was great for navigating the unfamiliar streets.
Used my Garmin USA onboard app for my iPhone this time. Worked very well. Traffic was super accurate.
We went to Montgomery for dinner and dancing, avoiding all intersections with rlc's. I wonder how much business is "transferred" when tourists and locals avoid rlc's.
No major travel this week, just out and about on the normal shopping/errands type trips. Using Waze on the Android phone for the most part and liking it.
Don't need to take a trip to use the GPS ... it's used virtually all the time when driving. We move it from one vehicle to another.
I have one for each car, I use them everyday, it's like second nature to me now. My daughter does too, and panics if she cannot!
While the kids were taking a nap in the car, I took a drive through southern Prince George's County and Charles County via Indian Head, La Plata, and Waldorf.
Went to Eastlake (cleveland suburb) Sunday.
To my farm for a little hog hunting. GPS certainly has a way of routing me a different route. HMMMM.....
To Toronto. Got me around
Using my c340. Went to Port Land, Maine.
Son number 2 just got a car, now his Christmas presents will be easier - a nuvi GPSr is going on the list.
That was a nice short trip to NY
I've been setting adding places we want to see to a custom POI file for a trip to Oahu in April.
getting lost in Florida. Tomorrow.
Argyle,Tx in the morning to visit the grandkids and great granddaughter for a few days.
Will be using my just bought 2595LMT for the first time.
Driving around for flea markets.
Had to find a new place in Suffolk. Needed for the red light cameras!
Just got back from a fairly long trip, using my Dezl 560 LMT.
Clovis, NM to Portales, NM, then to Big Spring, Texas. next to Springfield, Missouri, Cabool, Missouri, and then WAY north to New Lisbon, Wisconsin. From there, over to La Crosse, Wisconsin, then down to Albuquerque, NM, and finally Portales, NM, and home for the weekend in Clovis, NM.
I'm trying to remember but I think that was around 3700 miles...
about to drive from st louis to rock island
Took the Garmin to use on a rental car in Detroit. Even with outdated maps, it behaved very well! No problems at all.
Took a drive out to the desert a couple of weeks ago. Surprised to see almost all of the bigger "dirt" roads actually showed up on the GPS. Pretty cool.
AMTRAK trip (LA>CHI>DC>MIAMI), Then 11 days at sea to the Caribbean and back again via train.
I pre loaded all the AMTRAK stations on my routes so I could find out where we were and how late we were going to be. Also used "jack" (NUVI 295W) to help identify some Caribbean islands we caught sight of but did not visit.
Jack made the trip more enjoyable
Using my handy nuvi 760. It keeps on working great although I'm also starting to use the Garmin iPhone app.
Tell us more about the train trip, how many days, cost etc, I would love to do that.
Pittsburgh > Rochester, NY > Washington, DC > Pittsburgh. Zumo 665 worked great. I just hope Garmin fixes the Lane Assist when they start the 2013 maps. JCVs are fine.
It's amazing the redlight and speed cameras in the MD / DC area.
SPEED CAMERA CORRECTION
FYI, I drove by the following speed camera 2 nights ago and every sign leading up to the camera says it is 50 MPH.
-76.74626,39.35556,"Speed 55 - I-695 sb @55","MD Lochearn poi-factory Mar21 12"
Heading back to Iowa, and the GPS is already in the truck.
Giving up that great AZ weather ???????
Got a little nippy there last week - was probably warmer in IA
Safe trip !
Weather in east central Iowa has been in the upper 60's to low 80's the past couple of weeks. Flowering trees are in bloom (very early this year). Welcome home RT.
but already planning the next big trip
Nowhere but local
Stayed local this week, with the usual trips for food/supplies. No significant issues with regard to the travel itself. Navigation assistance was not essential, but worked well (combination of Google navigation and Waze).
Thanks bear. I adjusted the speed, and it will be included in the next update.
Love the RLC files
