Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – April 2015


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.

To my motorcycle fixit man to get my 1992 Goldwing running again.


Nowhere today but....

the summer is shaping up. Probably swing west to California and take 101 all the way up the coast through Oregon and back down wine country.

Now the only real decision, motorcycles or camper? Better idea yet, upgrade trailer and take both!

Home sweet home

Letting the GPS guide me around town when I know exactly where I'm going, just because I'm happy to be back in town.

Another Atlanta trip coming up next week. DRATS! Nothing necessarily wrong with Atlanta. I just hate to be away from home so much.

Every day

I still turn the GPS on anytime I get in the car, especially for work. I use the tracks to remember where I was on any given day.

Last place i navigated to

Last place i navigated to was home. I knew where i was going, but i recently made it a custom POI and it sounds like a plane landing when i pull up!!

Latest Trip

Went out to my trailer today to open it up and hook up the water. This is the only real sign of spring although today was decent, we still can expect some cold weather for a week or so. It was nice to get out and let the beagles run around. I've been there at least a 1000 times but I still use my Garmin to show my speed when I'm cruising the tollway.

Dogwoods in Palestine

Enjoyed a beautiful day last Saturday riding with friends to Davey Park in Palestine, Texas to see the Dogwoods in Bloom. Got to enjoy the East Texas scenery and see all the trees welcoming spring. Was on the lookout for Bluebonnets but guess it is just a bit early. Lot's of other wild flowers though.

that windmill alive.

New 2599LMTHD

I've been trying some 60-70 mile trips with my new 2599LMTHD trying out the new functions (from my 1490Ts)...lots of fun - especially the voice commands! I still haven't seen the HD traffic report anything, but haven't really run into much traffic over the last few trips.

I'm still trying to figure out how the new Junction View works - getting off at the same exit on two different days, one time it gave me the dynamic lane guidance, the next time it only gave me the photo-realistic I'm not quite sure how it determines which one to use.. I'm sure I'll figure it out as I continue to play with it.

Overall- very happy with the new toy...the five years of technology difference between the two is huge!

I keep my gps on all the time

I do have mine all the time. Around town to see what streets around, look for places just in case I need to go somewhere without knowing what`s there. I cam be alert for red-light cams in areas I don`t know.

Now, I am looking for points of interest from Detroit to Florida Panhandle. I found one POI that I have to stop and is already in Alabama (Unclaimed Baggage ). That looks good for some merchandise.
Now I ma looking for some interesting stops to relax.

Back in Atlanta

Back at our Atlanta office and navigating the area around the hotel.

Next Trip

Myrtle Beach South Carolina this weekend. Lets see if the new map changed any routes.


The traffic alert and alternate route...

function on the trusty 2555LMT saved us a bunch of time today. We were headed downtown to meet up with a friend who had just arrived from back East. Ten miles of the Interstate was basically shutdown with a traffic issue and the Nuvi did the job with a great alternate route!
