Keeping the Windmill Alive - Your last trip? - November 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.

Work and back

Nothing out of the ordinary last week, mainly work and back with side trips for local shopping and library visits.

Wishing all safe travels for Thanksgiving!

Headed out in the morning...

going east to see family for Thanksgiving. Taking a new route and it's comforting to know the Nuvi will get us there if we get turned around on the new route smile

San Jose to Saint Helena in the Napa Valley

Tried out my Garmin USA app on my iPhone and that worked great. Traffic is much much better than on my nuvi 760

Across Town

Just across town to somewhere I haven't been.

Rhode Island

Last trip was to Newport, RI for a cousins' wedding. The GPS routed me a way that I had not planned. It was one exit further on I-95 and I got to my destination but it seemed roundabout. I drove home the way I had expected I was going to get there (past University of RI).

last trip

Rode up to the Tank Museum in Danville, Va. Having relied upon a GPS these past several years makes me wonder how I was so able to find places using a map.

First time posting on POIF ...

I've been using an off-board GPS tethered via BT to a Nokia N800 (not a phone) for about 3 yrs. The last trip was overseas to Istanbul for 10 days. Imagine never really being lost in the Grande Bazzar or walking all those tiny alleys? Having a GPS track to merge into the photos is nice too.

The best part was taking a tram to a train, then walking about a mile directly to an iron church ... mostly downhill. Sadly, the church was closed for renovations, but the walk was through some really interesting, old neighborhoods. We came accross a film crew working by accident. Istanbul is fairly hilly. Getting outside the tourist areas isn't too hard with the confidence of a GPS.

Having a POI file with all the tourist traps, tram and metro station stops was nice too.

Most of the time, I use a GPS just while hiking around N.Ga.

I like the N800 for displaying the maps because it can use many different free map sources.

Back to Work

After finding my way back home to Long Island last weekend, my Nuvi led the way back to Charlotte this weekend, including finding me a way around an accident delay on I-85.

Interestingly - and I don't have traffic notifications on it - it used vastly different routes between Charlotte, NC and Richmond, VA last weekend and this. Time wise, they were just about the same, but no where close to one another geographically.

Local driving but came in handy when there were two streets with the same name but different suffixes - I never knew the other street existed! Garmin saved the day!

Going to Houston from Dallas

PA, NY & NJ

For the Thanksgiving holiday wifey and I went to the Poconos (from Philadelphia) and spent time with her family, who live up there year round, then we took a drive to Newburgh, NY to visit the Orange County Choppers showroom (from the TV show American Chopper) the route home took us through New Jersey, had to re route once because of heavy traffic in NJ, but all in all no problems with my Garmin 2460.

Biloxi and Geocaching with Family

Drove from Atlanta area to Biloxi, MS for Thanksgiving - relative has a new house there. Maemo Mapper worked perfectly.

A few days there and that side of the family is completely addicted to geocaching - had 11 geocache "finds" in the local area. Beautiful weekend for this GPS-using hobby.

Also went on a little water cruise around the rivers and bay of Biloxi. While my GPS wasn't perfect, his Garmin marine GPS handled it perfectly. I just saved the track and merged the GPS track data into the photos taken.

My Last Trip was....

A quickie from DC to Baltimore. Made it in 32 minutes.

Atlantic City - Post Sandy

Went to Atlantic City just before Thanksgiving. Found more damage from Sandy north of Atlantic City then in AC itself. Some Boardwalk areas were being repaired but otherwise not as terrible as other towns.

Back home from...

Thanksgiving with friends.

Work trip to...

Bryan Ohio to see some tires for earth-moving equipment being made.

Last Trip

Distant relative on Thanksgiving that I knew faintly how to get to. By using the GPS, we got there quickly and returned quickly. It would have been another matter if I relied on my old memories of how to get there.

Just back...

Just back from a 15 day cruise to Hawaii. We rented cars on each island we visited and I used my trusty 760 to get me around Hawaii, Kuai, Oahu, and Maui. As usual, Jack was spot on with directions. It was sad to return home (and to work). It's WINTER here! What's up with that? Winter on Maui is sooooooooooooooooo much nicer.

Always take "jack"

with me when I go out of town. Helps me find restaurants, etc. Most fun, however, was on a Caribbean cruise. Jack helped me identify names of islands we passed close to but did not stop at. Call me weird.

First Trip with 3490LMT

My new Nuvi accompanied me on trip to Newport, RI over Thanksgiving. The traffic feature worked like a charm. Didn't take any detours, but was glad to know when a backup was up the road and how long it was and how long it would take to clear it. They were accurate to a couple hundred feet. One guy could have used the same feature. As we approached a backup on I-95, the guy in the lane next to me failed to slow down and plowed into the back of the car in front of him. I barely escaped being clipped by accident.

The 3490 worked very well, but I preferred a few different segments to the recommended route. Will have to learn how to plan routes.
