Keeping the Windmill Alive - Your last trip? - June 2012


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.

Just local, but comparing

Just local, but comparing new phone maps to the Garmin to see how, or if, they differ. So far Google seems to be more up to date, which is not surprising.

My Last Trip was.....

Epcot to be exact. From Delray Beach.

Little Red Wagon

We drove a long way today to buy a "Made In America" Radio Flyer. The lady wanted to give me directions instead of an address over the phone. My 1490 put me right in front of the old farmhouse on a dead end road.

Back-to-back road trips to San Diego

Sea World on day one - Didn't much need it for Sea World, but it came in real handy for getting us from there to Phil's BBQ for some of the best BBQ in San Diego. Long line, but worth it!

Back to SD and the Zoo for day 2 - It came in real handy finding the shortest path to the Zoo and then from the Zoo to hook up w/ friends at a restaurant (Tony's Jacal) in Solana Beach (about 22 miles away).

Just returned home

from a 9 day 2400 mile road trip with my wife and daughter... Iowa to New Jersey for a wedding, then took the train into NYC to visit GZ and lower Manhattan, then drove up to Niagra Falls for a couple of days and back to Iowa. Used my old nuvi 855 ... worked great. I still like the 855 for its feature of listening to an audio book and having it automatically mix with navigation prompts and alerts. Interestingly, we did not get a single RLC or speed camera alert in any of the areas of the 7 states we traveled thru ... and yes, I know the alerts were enabled and working.

To Marina,CA



Took two days to drive to LA and spent a day at Knots Berry Farm park celebrating our grand daughters 9th birthday. Spent over $300 but it was worth it when she kissed me and thanked me for having the best birthday ever. When shall I wash my cheek?.

Been camping and missing this site


FInally - taking the fam to HHI for vacation. Haven't had a vacation for two years.

Taking the 3760 with me.

Update: AHHH! we made it - the 3760 worked great on the way down. There were plenty of junction views.

It also works great on the island, as things are hard to find without it due to the sign being place in the landscaping and not able to be lit unless with direct light.

Google nav app performed as expected, no issues.

I have a feeling I'll be

I have a feeling I'll be using my GPS this week to try to find alternate routes around the traffic coming from Creation. 120,000 christians at a weekend long concert event, all wanting to go home at the same time that I want to go home from camping.

Left home this morning at

Left home this morning at 5am got to Mississauga at 6:30am, left Mississauga at 2pm got back home at 6pm, can't wait to do it again tomorrow. Need waaaaay more beer.

Home again, Home again

Back home again in FL after our 24 day driving trip in/thru 12 states up as far as Northern, Maine.
Drove 4206 miles, average mpg on our Ford Taurus was 28 mpg and average cost of gas was $3.33 per gal. Lowest was under $3 in VA & SC.
Most expensive in Northern states.
Found 2 rest areas that have reopened and one that has closed. Will update RAC POI file next week !
Excellent trip - practically no rain although temps in the North were a tad cool for my S.O.
Jack (my GPS) had one problem in NY finding a restaurant. They had wrong street address in data base. Other than that - flawless performance.
