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.
This is question about GPS routing, If you have two nuvi GPS, one is recent and the other one is 7 years old. Both GPS are updated with the latest maps, my question is, if you plan a trip, would the established route be identical, providing that all settings and route preferences are same on both..?
I am curious to know. Have a great Monday everyone.
I believe that the firmware is not identical in all models, therefore, the algorithms are not necessarily the same.
I too am curious if anyone knows for sure ...
and get around never ending construction
I went looking for a church that was founded by a family forefather. I would not have found the road if not for the GPS. The road was paved but not wide enough for a center line.
One week into trip from GA in our VW Vanagon camper bus.
Rallied with 170 some other buses, camping in a fairground in Almonte, Ontario, and now driveway camping with friends in the area.
Planning to be out until the end of July.

came back yesterday from a 3 day trip to north texas. traveling with a gps still amazes after years and years of use. I traveled a long time with paper maps in the 1970s-1990s before GPS. Wonder how I managed -lol.
Attended a baptism at a Lake Sanchris. We sang "As I went down to the river to pray." That song was in the movie, "O Brother Where Art Thou"
Then attended a gospel concert near Salem.
Took a trip from DSM to LA to Phoenix to DSM.
To try to answer a question previously asked, I used both of my GPS units, one built in the dash and a Nuvi 1490.
I set them up for the same destinations and the quickest time they both at times went separate ways. One consistent thing was that they preferred the interstates over two lane roads even if the highway was shorter and almost just as fast speed limit.
First example was from Tucumcari NM to Kansas City MO both wanted to take I 40 to Oklahoma and then up I35 to I 70 to KC. The fastest way is to take highway 52/400 to Wichita and then join I35 and follow it to KC. It is basically a question about right angle sides lengths. Both tried to turn me around and take the interstate.
Don't need a Garmin here since I'm walking or taking Taxis....
Great view of the New World Trade Center from my hotel room.
Does nowhere count?
off of I-84
Did a nice trip with my wife to Vegas and the north rim of the Grand Canyon
Leaving tomorrow for a week in Maggie Valley, NC
Heading for Walt Disney World and Universal Studios tomorrow morning. I'm bringing Sheila (my Nuvi 2595) up to date today, so I'll have the latest POIs and maps on the trip.
Used my garmin usa app on the iphone and the traffic feature was very very helpful in bypassing potentially 45 minutes of traffic.
COLORADO, AND UTAH... LOTS OF HIKING ,ROCK CLIMBING .... BACKPACKING
The little Nuvi worked perfectly. Life is good!
New jersy to phildelphia

Keep it alive, how.
Lady Lake(The Villages) Florida...
Just cruisin in the nice weather
Just trips to work and back this week. Avoided driving in the worst part of the storms that rolled through, but other than that, an uneventful week.
I just came from fl.
Happy Father's Day
We took a short trip down to San Antonio, and a long one to Disney World.
Washington, DC to Anderson, SC.
Off to Oregon perhaps...
4 day heat wave and it messed up my Magellan GPS.
I loaded my Nuvi with a lot of off-road waypoints that I got from a book. I converted the waypoints to DD and loaded them into my Nuvi 1650LMT and took off into the off-roads in my Jeep. They worked great. Love GPS's
Washington, DC to Richmond, VA & return along the coastal route.
Flor-i-duh > Maine > Flor-i-duh
25 day trip - 4536 miles total
Used 160.4 gallons of gas
Average mpg including all local traveling 28.3 mpg
Average cost of fuel for the trip $3.425/gal
"Jack" did very well - got a bit confused on some real back roads in Maine but he got me out !
Checked out 6 of my recommended Lobster Shacks in NH & ME and found that they were still worthy to be included in the POI file.
Now to unpack, wash clothes and rest up !
Where to next ??????????????????????????
Took a trip to N. Carolina and used it all week to get around.
Took a road trip through and around Shawnee National Forest in southern IL. Very remote and undeveloped with lots of county and barely-marked roads. POI's for some trailheads and other areas often involved getting coordinates from a visual inspection in Google Earth based on a description like "small gravel pull-off big enough for two cars, a mile from the junction" and entering that in the Nuvi. At that point the Nuvi would get shut off and the eTrex would take over.
