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

Was surprised to find that also when I was in FL where they had the HD service.

At the end of the first week of a three week drive now in Banff, Alberta.

Nuvi 2797LMT, DriveSmart 50 LMT-HD, Using Windows 10. DashCam A108C with GPS.

Drove To Museum...

Set GPS for location which was just off the interstate.

For some reason the GPS wanted me to detour off of the interstate and take the adjoining service road right next to it. confused

Stayed on interstate and reached my destination anyways... no matter what the Garmin wanted me to do. grin


I'm not really lost.... just temporarily misplaced!

Happy Monday


Thanx BiLL Solomon

Used my Garmin in Lyon France

Bought the European 2015 map micro sd card.

Outside of all the roundabouts and toll roads (you have to have small bills and change OR the new smart chip credit card)... having a GPS really makes driving in Europe easy.

took a little trip

down south.

Wait a minute... who am I here?

The Last Trip

Lake George New York

In Vietnam...

this week. No need for the little Nuvi.

Off for a trip to the west

Off for a trip to the west country this weekend.

went to...

my doctor -- you know, Vinnie Boombatz!


Off on a fall ride through cranberry country in central Wisconsin. My first significant trip routed in Base camp after watching Don's instructional videos on POI Factory. Learned much from the videos, and got a few tweaks via mistakes I made in routing smaller trips. Fingers crossed.... smile

The Catoctins

The Catoctin Mountains for the fall colors.



Went to Miami in August, got a car rental and it's still charging my credit card for Tolls.

Finger Lakes

Thanks to all who contributed ideas on where to go, in this beautiful part of NY State.
Crossed border at Gananoque, then on to the following:
Watertown: Salmon Run Mall-Wallets hurting a bit
Syracuse: Historic District, and Empire Brewing, that was in the Triple D Plus POI. Also Destiny USA Mall- wallet was spared, because many stores were out of my league. Loved watching the Go Karts
Itahaca: Downloaded the Waterfalls POI and found Ithaca Falls, with a bit of work. Have correction to offer for this file.
Corning: Corning Museum of Glass is a must see. Go anytime, but they open a huge new section in March 2015 That will be even more fantastic.
Seneca Falls: Beautiful town. Connie's Diner is a must for a meal. 50s style diner, with great food. Cash only though.
Waterloo: Wallet is really sore. Hit Premium Outlets, thanks to that POI.
Skaneateles: Absolutely charming downtown and just have to hit the Skaneateles Bakery for their donuts, scones and coffee.
Auburn: Another charming downtown.
Canandaigua: Great town. Simply Crepes a must for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Sonneberg Castle and Gardens a must see.
If you go, be sure to take the roads that run along any of the lakes, especially, if you like wine and great scenery.

I guess I'm not going to

I guess I'm not going to make it out of the hospital this week to get my windmill. Maybe I can use the buggy ride to the rehab house tomorrow as my trip.
