Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – July 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.

NJ to Canadian Niagara Falls and back

Our last trip was from New Jersey, through Pennsylvannia and upstate New York to Canadian side of Niagara's Falls (magnificent waterfalls views!).

We thanked a thousand times for our dedicated Garmin 2595 as for 90% of the trip we had barely cell reception on droid phones, no 4G coverage except for brief flybys around bigger cities, mostly Edge data and that only sometimes...

This trip, I left the PND at home, and used my Nokia Lumia with Here Drive (had already downloaded North America) It worked well enough. It certainly got us where we needed to go without issue.

And now, back to your regularly scheduled forum - already in progress . . .

Boise, ID

Just arrived in Boise, and finding my way around.

drove up

to Balmur (That's Baltimore for those of you not familiar with the way the natives pronounce the city's name) and my 3597 spewing out "real directions" told us to "Turn left before the school with the columps." Sure enough, there on the corner we were to turn at was an imposing building with some majestic columns.

Gotta love how they string sounds together to make words.

Crater Lake

Went there a few years ago. Took my folks with me. They grew up in Washington and Northern Oregon. Had never been there. Watching their faces when they first saw the Lake... "PRICELESS". A memory I'll not soon forget.

My daughter and her husband

My daughter and her husband took a road trip this weekend through an area with multiple routing options. Although she rarely drives it, she knew our preferred route which was not the same as the Nuvi. After repeatedly telling her husband to ignore the GPS he asked “So why did we bring the GPS?”.
