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.
My last (bike) trip was around town, up some big hills, down by the river and back. Out geocaching.
We were at Bardabunga 4 days prior to it's first eruption in Iceland. Glad to say, we didn't hang around.
Just got back from picking up our new puppy in Indiana.
About to see if I can increase my "Max speed" record over the current 605mph. If I can get the flight attendant to ask the pilot nicely maybe I can break 650mph!
Great ride and lunch with several friends to the Loco Coyote Grill just a few miles west of Glen Rose.
Staying off the roads today!
Has anybody been to "Grumps Burgers" in Granbury, Texas?
Saw it on the tv yesterday as the #1 spot for hamburgers.
May take a drive down there.
a trip planned for last week had to cancel due to illness
Knoxville,Nashville,Memphis,San Antonio,Houston,Galveston,Cozumel,New Orleans,Charlotte,Myrtle Beach,Poconos then home Phewwww.
Nuvi 765T don't fail me now.
GPS sent me over an overpass and back onto freeway instead of continuing on freeway,i hate when that happens
It has been a while since I travelled to Atlanta for a NASCAR race. I could hardly believe the great improvements that have been made to the parking lots. They are easy to enter, great for parking, and easy to exit.
On previous trips, it was slow and tedious to enter and exit the lots. If it rained you were almost certain to get stuck in the soggy fields. No more.
And all of the improvements are updated on my GPS. Followed the suggested routes to and from the track without encountering any problems.
Thanks for the improvements Atlanta Motor Speedway and Garmin!
Heading to New Orleans and Baton Rouge this week.
Just returned from a 4 day mini-vacation on Superior's North Shore near Beaver Bay MN. Stayed in a delightful cottage with my daughter and her family. We had a rainy day that restricted our activities, but enjoyed the beautiful scenery, some hiking at Gooseberry Falls and Split Rock, and spending the quality time with my grandsons.
My 3597LMTHD worked great with no issues.
Drove down and visited James Madison's home Montpelier. VA State Troopers were out in force with a lot of speeders pulled over.
NE Tennessee to Huntington WV and back.
Fun was not had.....
Used both my Garmin and my Android. Google Maps does a better job, but my smartphone overheats when charging the battery with the screen on constantly, the GPS running and data streaming.
ye old windmill alive.
3 day golf trip to Buehler's in the Poconos.
Took a couple of day trips up the Blue Ridge Parkway and into the mountains in western NC, including one 10 mile stretch on a dirt road through the woods up the side of a mountain, which was shown on the GPS.
To Centennial Airport (Code: APA) for an introductory flight lesson. The Cessna had a Garmin GPA. Interesting.
Too pricy for my blood. But. Tempting. Very tempting.
Finding my way around Tillamook, Oregon this week.
Philly area for a wedding. Glad I had the redlight camera POI file as there sure were a lot of alerts.
Heading out to another Coonhound show.
Just home and boring.
Another great week no matter where you are!
Just hung around the house.
Routine travel this week, with a couple of doctors visits. No issues.
I like the red light and speed camera POI's best
Recently the government here changed the School speed to 30 KPH from the normal 50 KPH for several hundred streets in order to protect the children. So this became effective Sept 1, 2014...and out came the photo enforcement and additional cops with laser radar. Interestingly Sept 1 was a statuary holiday and they issued almost 200 tickets so that the children are protected.
The new speed zones are effective Sept 1 to June 20, Monday to Friday 07:30 to 17:30
Sort of like the photo radar unit they had placed in a school zone on Dec 25, 2013 at 11:00 "to protect the children".
Nothing but a cash grab...
Working on an update for the POI-Factory speed zone for Winnipeg as not all streets along the school are now 30...only 90+%
Beautiful, simply beautiful.
And my new nuvi 2597 with the European maps on a chip worked very well.
Life is good (despite the 6.0 gift from Mrs. Nature).
...from Ottawa and return. Used built-in GPS but had Nuvi 855 in case of difficulties.
Fixin to go to a car show if the weather holds out.
Hope there are cars there...
Newport Beach to catch a ferry to Catalina Island. Weather was perfect and the friends we went with were fun!
The old Nuvi worked perfect bit it might be time for a map update. Looks like it's almost cheaper to buy a new unit then the map upgrade
Going down south soon
With school back in session and kids out of control, I just want to get home and take a nap!
Haven't heard how things are now weeks after the quake. Hopefully business as usual soon.
My last trip was from Toronto Canada to Walt Disney World in Florida. My 3597 never ditched me anywhere. It worked flawlessly.
Gathering with some family friends.
We went to Giant Burger in the Exxon Station in Rhome (#1 Cheeseburger worth our going out of the way for) for early dinner then on to the car show. The road we take was closed for construction so we used our built in Navigation System in our Honda Accord for the first real time. It was set for fastest time so it was taking us down the highway. We like to go the back roads and I don't know how to make changes to the settings in a hurry on the Accord.
My Nuvi was in the cabinet at home as usual but I did have my tablet with my Viago on it. I turned it on and clicked on a road near where we were going and it showed the back way. As we approached the road the Viago showed us to take we turned and our Accord (Jill #2 as we call her) recalculated to the correct back roads. We made it just fine.
When we were ready to go home I pressed GO Home on the Accord system and it took the correct way home.
Nice to have.....
Still like the Nuvi best for long trips with routes planned but the Accord Navigation System along with my Nexus 7 with Garmin Viago work great for short trips.
Downtown Honolulu to Wahiawa. No problems.
Wife used wrong cord to power GPS. She complained that it should have been better designed so that cord could reach from outlet to window mount...sigh.
Another Monday. Off to get ready for work.
