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.
I lost mine how can I get it back ?
Last week has been pretty slow for me, just driving around locally. Next week, perhaps...
Around the northern and southern tip of Long Island.
Had a quiet week with short trips to work/shopping. Google nav worked fine - no issues.
An over-nighter from Monday, 4/30 to Tuesday, 5/1!
We drove the old truck over the many gravel roads just to sightsee. We found Hidden Lake on a dead end road. Then we shared a sundae. GPS showed 48 miles.
Took a trip to Minnesota for my Son's wedding. Always use the GPS, especially on trips.
Currently in Labrador, GPS is starting to act a bit weird... Could be fun trying to get back home!
Across town, in a area I didn't know very well.
Down to Nashville and around about.
Will just be driving around locally.
Went to a nearby city and used my 2555lmt to find a couple of stores I had never been to.
My GPS unit has a lot of features that I forget by the time we take a real trip, so I have started using it on all local trips to stay practiced. As it turns out, the red light alert has been a good thing. I don't run lights, but like to know when big brother is lurking.
Also, I am beginning to use it locate services from where ever I am. I find that function to be superior to the apps I have on my phone for that purpose.
Atlanta, GA to Sevierville, TN, VW Car show with camping. Grocery store near destination had been closed, found another, warm beer problem solved.
Nuvi 750, "Silvie"
throughout Death Valley on motorcycles. GPS did great even in the hot temperatures!
When to the VA on Long Island to get a picture ID so I could get discounts, lol.
From Fort Worth, TX to Yuba City, CA.
I had never driven anywhere through any mountains before. Trip will be remembered. Stopped in Tucumcaia, NM, Forgotthename, AZ, and made it to Yuba City on 3rd day. Wish I had had time to sight see on the way.
Trying to find a decent way to get to the airport so we won't miss the flight home.
Went on vacation last week. As usual, Jack was invaluable routing us all over the place. He even routed us successfully down 5 miles of narrow, cliff-hugging, poison oak lined road to an awesome camping spot on the Tuolumne river. Sometimes I'm amazed by the roads that are fully mapped.
NOTE: We WANTED to go on the road mentioned above. It wasn't poor routing it was just good maps and good routing.
Us Lawn Guylanders call them the North and South Fork.
I went down to Charlotte, NC last week on business, and brought the Nuvi along - I flew down, but I'm looking at moving there before long for work, and not only did it help me find my way around the city in the rental car, but I got to save some places as Favorites for future use.
On our way to Vegas two weeks ago my Garmin 750 stopped working midway through the trip. When I arrived home I realized that it was not charging properly and I was able to correct the problem.
Next trip is to Scottsdale, AZ. Hopefully, it will continue to work properly.
here only local driving mostly, nothing worth mentioning ...
a friends house off the 405
Made a run down to St. Louis last week.
Heading to VA.
to Madison last week for an hour to hit the Apple Store.
Used GPS for trip from IA to AZ. Still worked great; but I guess it's getting time to replace the old nuvi350.
Only problems were the small screens. I still run the 260 (for my co-pilot) and my 1490.
For some reason I haven't had the problems that others have had with the 1490. Just love the 5" screen and the Bluetooth.
Got about a 5k mile trip coming up in June. have completed a Route for each segment including via points and gas stops ( Gas Buddy to the rescue) .
Maybe next year will be a AZ trip for us - to Anthem & Cottonwood.
Stay well & safe RT !
from Huntsville,Tx to watch my granddaughter graduate from Sam Houston University.
touring the south rim of the Grand Canyon followed by the Skywalk on the west rim. Did it on motorcycles with friends from Alaska. Life is good but we head home tomorrow
didn't really go anywhere, except to treat my wife on Mother's day.
Used the GPS to find swimming pool stores.
The wife and I went Geocaching around the Harrisburg, PA area. Found a great BBQ/ice cream place that we just had to get back to. Even with the GPS, I still have no clue where that place was at.
and Shenandoah National Park. If you are over 62 and you get a lifetime pass, you can save yourself some money on admission fees on entering some of the parks that you have to pay to enter. In this case it was $15.00. Not bad in that the pass only costs $10.00. $5.00 to the good already. Planning on going out west sometime next year. I should really make a killing out there since almost all of the parks out west charge admission fees.
I bought my lifetime passport card 8 years ago. About 6 years ago we visited a Anasazi ruins in AZ. The ranger said that every visitor so far that day had a pass. Zero dollars in the till.
Had the Lifetime Pass now for about 13 years - saved me a bundle !
Used it once to just make sure I know where the redlight cameras are.
Did some geocaching on the weekend in a wetlands preserve area. Found my caches, but made the mistake of taking a shortcut through an area with tall waist-high grass. Bad mistake. We came home with 5 ticks on me and 3 on the dog. Ugh!!! Strip search, shower, sprays and a stern lecture from the Mrs.
"Happy Mother's Day, Dear! Me and the dog just brought a bunch of ticks into the house." At least the dog is used to being in the dog house. Now that I think about it, it's not all that an unfamiliar place for me, either.
I leave my unit plugged in and running any time I am in the car, particularly for RLC warnings. I know where just about all of them are in my area, but yesterday, I drove down to the air show at McGuire AFB, and stumbled across a couple of RLCs in northern NJ that I wasn't aware of.
Did a little driving yesterday (Mother's Day). Traffic was moderate with no slow spots along the way. no rain until after we returned home, which was a welcome change. Google nav app performed well.
1500 miles on motorcycles around Death Valley and the Grand Canyon, including the Skywalk. Fun trip with friends from Alaska. Now they start their adventure back home to Alaska. Wish we were going too!
To Mammouth Cave, KY.
Doing local trips.
My nuvi 2460LMT was not 100 percent on some of the way points in Pensacola, FL. I need to research why and will report back as time allows.
I was in the habit of driving all over the Uni9ted States, using my GPS to route me over trips of 500-1800 miles ONE WAY. Now things have changed, and I'm only going out about a hundred miles. Latest trip was from Clovis, NM to Lubbock, Tx and back.
...but the battery on the old Garmin 760 finally died. I need to replace it. Smartphone came in handy, but I miss the red light camera POIs.
Looking for Fo Yo in Santa Rosa, CA...
