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.
Is blowing in the wind.
Last Trip - Chanhassen, MN and Bloomington, MN - had my 3760 with me . . . Waiting for my 3490, should arrive today - first trip with that may be back hoe to the CLE Ohio area. 2 trips to GA also planned - one driving from OH - one flying. Will get to use my new toy for those - looking forward to it.
Took a trip to Livermore CA. and surrounding area. GPS worked great. Target locator was a big help.
after seeing our newest grandson for the first time:-)
Have been using my Nuvi to find houses for sale for the past 6 months. Finally found one and am in the process of trying to buy it. My GPSr has been invaluable in locating these properties.
Nothing New To Report (NNTP)
Hit Red Lobster for monthly birthday celebration. Other than that, just the usual short work/shopping trips.
Washington, DC to Albany, NY.
We're going overseas to Asia later this month. Of course, don't leave home without your gpsr!
At the mall!
Came back from the VF Outlets
for three days of fun and sightseeing!
Sharwood Forest Fare yesterday.
Nothing unusual, just found a Home Depot...
...Got a shingles shot.
Where did summer go?
it's just trips around town.
In a few weeks i will be about to clue up my 4 month vacation in florida and head back up north. Over the past 3 months i used my 3760 every day to navigate the Tampa area. I found my gps gave me great confidence and never got me lost. If it didn't give me the best directions at least it never got me lost and always returned me home. In 3 weeks i have a 4875 km trip ahead of me and I hold great faith my GPS will meet the challenge.
and no play.
Back and forth to downtown Pittsburgh.
Omaha to Sioux City for NAIA womens BB.
Updated my Nuvi. Wow. It never showed me driving through a field once on my last trip. It's like it knows where the roads are and everything.
Nowhere I needed the GPS unfortunately. Think I need a holiday.
Nothing special this week, just the usual day-to-day treks.
to work and back
got a 493 mph airspeed reading. better to fly from ohio to texas. only 2 1/2 hours as to 18 for the drive. This summer we will probably drive.
The Garmin took us on a route from Quartzsite, AZ to Laughlin, NV on a route I had not expected looking at the road atlas. All was well, and it turned out to be a slightly shorter route than I had traveled in the past.
Bethesda, MD to Albany, IN.
is it Friday yet..?
Returned from a month in Florida. Fortunate to have missed the blizzard that hit Long Island.
When the pump clicked off at $100, I reached for my Sams and CC to continue. The guy behind me seemed to be pi$$ed at waiting so long. My old truck has a big tank.
Parts of this concerns several posts.
I updated my 1490LMT day before we left and set the route.
In the morning Jill showed me the way out of town and then things went south. The screen changed to where the car was on an empty screen followed by a statement to "continue on University Avenue for 229 miles".
I stopped the car and turned the Garmin off and then on again. The screen showed a message "cannot complete this route"
After several tries I gave up and turned on HD Eco route and watched the gauges until Hannibal Missouri where we ate lunch. Afterwards I turned the Garmin on and the map showed up and Jill showed us the way to St Louis and our hotel. Had no problems driving in the city until ready to leave for home when up came the message "low battery". After hitting ok the message repeated several times and the thing was plugged into the car.
Remembering former posts about the plug might be the fault, I had my wive place the cord behind the glove box door and close it so it would not freely hang. No problems all the way home.
When I got home I put in the plug and then super glued a small block of wood under the plug to the case so that any cord plug would be held up and not put pressure on the circuit board.
Thanks for the idea.
Went to Greensboro looking for furniture stores to buy a bookshelf headboard, and storage bed.
lake Texoma Camping with the Boy Scouts
Omaha to Orlando
Lincoln cabin in Washington, DC.
Post to comply.
To Marble Falls, Tx for the day to pick strawberry from the vine. They had fun petting the animals and ride the tractor train. GPS did fine taking me there and back. No problem.
in AZ, we broke another heat record, 93F
Sadly, I am starting to find my smart phone more convenient than my Garmin. I still prefer the Garmin for long trips because I can mount it on the windshield, but for spur of the moment "where the heck am I" things, whipping out the Google Maps app on my smart phone has become super handy. I feel like a traitor.
Only for me, substitute"TomTom" for "Garmin."
Work, shopping, drug store... fighting off a cold and getting rest in between. No issues on the road, but even with the limited travel, I observed a number of near miss events (and some collisions) during the week.
Be careful out there - and watch out for the unpredictable behavior of the operators of the vehicles around you.
to visit family.
