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.
My last trip was to Orlando using my 2 year old Roadmate 1700. Audio was not working and had some trouble on the turns. Could not get support for it and decided to dump Magellan. Will try a garmin nuvi this time.
Had to make another road trip from DFW to Nebraska.
Provided a couple of rest area pairs along I35 to Ken.
Included in latest update !
I will be in Tempe all next week and will get to check out the unit there.
to Argyle,Tx for the week-end.
All I did is go to work
A new restaurant we wanted to try.
Just got back from a WEEK on the road. Didn't expect to be gone so long, either!
Covered perhaps 2500 miles, between Clovis, New Mexico -- Cabool, Missouri -- Big Spring, Texas -- Denver, Colorado -- Durango, Colorado -- finally back to the Clovis area. Pretty much in that order, too. I'm tired.
Hemet, CA to visit family.
He came down from Ohio and we met up in Richmond, VA.
Planning a trip from Northern KY to Washington, DC via West Virginia to Roanoke, Va then up the Blue Grass Parkway and Skyline Drive on to DC then down to Williamsburg and Virginia Beach. Haven't completed my return route plans.
My trusty nuvi 255w got me (on time) to a wedding on Captiva Is, Fla.
Saturday we toured Kansas City, looking at the fountains. I used a route on my 295w and a 1490t TourGuide file to identify the fountains & sculptures as we drove slowly past...Sunday we attended the NASCAR race.
No trips this week Everybody is sick with colds and and all that other nasty stuff...
from the CA visit
Planning a trip to Turkey Run and Shades State Parks in IN in a couple weeks. Have a Nuvi to set up with a few POI's and covered bridges to see along the way. Waiting on a new Etrex to be delivered and then have to get some maps, waypoints and hiking trails set up on it.
Recently spent a few days in Pensacola, FL square dancing and round dancing.
The Garmin 3760 made the trips there and back home easy and pleasant...It aslo helped us get around in Pensacola.
Short trip to see My Old Kentucky Home.

Home to Beckley, WV to Geneva, NY to Home.
My neck of the woods. Great area isn't it.
Around NB and Maine. Loading
poi for a trip to PA.
Got in yesterday morning. This was a "short" trip -- Clovis, NM -- Oklahoma City -- Lubbock -- Clovis, NM.
Went looking for a exotic lumber suppl store.
Tool "jack" along for the ride. It was interesting to see how close we passed by various islands on the way. We came close enough to Cuba to see it with the naked eye!
Set a new Latitude Low during the trip - 13.1 deg north!
Just got back from Florida. Weather much warmer there then here. I want to go back.
Took my oldest grandson to the dentist to get his bottom braces on.
Getting ready for a trip down to the central coast of California tomorrow. It's suppose to be really good weather tomorrow.
Just got back from my first camping trip of the year. My Garmin 2555 took me to all the sights I wanted to see.
I was in Tempe all last week - Jack served me well. Got the chance to visit with my Aunt and spend some time to visit the Four Peaks brewery - The Hop Knot and Raj IPAs were good.
Currently driving through Newfoundland, stopped in an oddly named town (Dildo). Nice little town, reminded me of Peggy's Cove. Very friendly people, although not a lot going on there. Hoping to head to France tomorrow if the ferry is running (St. Pierre and Miquelon).
Nowhere this week, but will be heading to Orlando in a couple of weeks. Plan on taking my Garmin Edge 800 to record the flight just to do it. I'l be using my iPhone with TomTom or CoPilot while there. So, just staying in the home area the next couple of weeks.
Happy Monday, Again!
DC to Boston, Used my Acura built-in navigation in conjunction with my Garmin 660. I prefer the functionality of the Garmin unit.
I haven't figured out how to enter Lat/Lon as a destination using the GPS that is bulit into my 2012 Ford F-450. Anyone know if it can be done??
Every two years or so I do a "round the USA" trip and see friends, relatives and sometimes mix in a little business.
I've not been back up on this site for quite a while (long story due to interruptions) so I've lost all my badges (windmills, stars, etc.).
So, leaving on another trip in about a week and a half. Going from Phoenix to Albuquerque, Denver, Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, Port Clinton, OH, Trumbull, CT, Hartford CT, Boston, Nashville, New Orleans, San Antonio, El Paso and back.
Lost my hard drive about a year ago and so lost all the POI info as well as Garmin update files. Have some catch up to do.
Last trip was driving back from our winter home in Mesa AZ, to Vancouver BC, using our 3790, which worked perfectly.
Just local driving this week!
Mainly making short trips around area. Using the google nav app and Waze for the most part. Had one glitch with Waze when it updated I think, but other than that, all was well. Great weather yesterday, too!
and since this is my last week of holidays , I'll be heading back north home with the hammer down this coming Thursday.
