Keeping the Windmill Alive - Your last trip? – March 2014


In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used 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.

Road trip to Norfolk

My last trip was from Wsashington DC to Norfolk VA for a work site visit. For a change of pace, I tried out the road less taken along US 1, US 60, US 301, and other non-interstates.


Camped at big bass lake in the ocala NF in Florida.
There are no bass and in fact no lake as it dried up years ago


Still more trips to new golf courses.

Didn't Go Anywhere

We didn't go anywhere in the last 2 days. Last night the windchill was -45C and today it's -35C. Too cold to do anything.

Roads were icy this morning, but much better this evening. Hoping we've seen the worst of the winter precipitation for this season.

Home to ORD and back.

Home to ORD and back. I just wish construction zone speed limits updated with the map updates.

Jihad THIS!! Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

If at first you don't succeed....redefine success


I'm envious of you.

Have not been on my R1100RT since last July.

One of the reasons I hate winter.

Just got back from the

Just got back from the Florida Keys. We did a little over 3000 miles and used the Red Light Camera POIs in the 765T. Florida seems to really like the RLCs.

I find we are using smartphones more often for planning during the trip to supplement the Garmin GPS. The ability to search points of interest, find interesting information about locations, restaurants, hotels, and get a good map overview is clearly superior. If not the the cost of data, and a convenient mount, I think the day of replacing the Garmin with smartphone navigation is nearly at hand.

From freezing to nearly 90 degrees F in a 2-day drive. I needed the break.

Went to the Dr. Appoinment

Avoid the traffic with my GPS.

Meet tour bus

Last trip was to meet a motorcoach tour. Glad I had my Garmin, or we would have been able to take a shorter route! smile

Unless you are the lead sled dog, the view never changes. I is retard... every day is Saturday! I still own the StreetPilot c340, and the Garmin Nuvi 765t, but upgraded to the NO "recalculating", 3590 LMT.


DC sucks...

Work Trip

Zelienople, PA to Fishkill, NY for a few days ... and back, 6 hours one way. Used the 1450 for this trip and it was flawless. It did recalculate me once off course traveling through the mountain valleys when it thought (bouncing sat signals) I was on a road north of the Interstate I was on.

I know the way but it is amazing how accurate the time of arrival was right from the start, within a few minutes.

POI Alerts

I made the mistake of loading Walgreens POI alerts with a submarine DIVE! DIVE! alert. In my town, there is a Walgreens on every corner. It's a bit much to drive though the city.

you're learning!

Be judicious on which POI you set alerts for. That doesn't mean you can't load an alert sound with them, just don't set the trigger. The alert will play if you route to the location without a proximity.
