Keeping the Windmill Alive - Your last trip? – March 2013

 

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.

House Hunting

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.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present...

Back home so now...

it's just trips around town.

using the gps

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.

All Work ...

and no play.

Back and forth to downtown Pittsburgh.

Updated my Nuvi. Wow. It

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

Nowhere I needed the GPS unfortunately. Think I need a holiday.

Shopping and Work

Nothing special this week, just the usual day-to-day treks.

just

to work and back

Never argue with a pig. It makes you look foolish and it anoys the hell out of the pig!

tried my gps on the airplane,

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.

Quartzsite to Laughlin

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.

My Last Trip was.....

Bethesda, MD to Albany, IN.

Davenport IA

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.

ST Louis

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.

Good solve

Thanks for the idea.

Sadly

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."

Another quiet week

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.

Over to California...

to visit family.
