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.
Nowhere special, just local.
To see the cherry trees in Kenwood & Washington, DC.
Last trip to Hamilton Ontario.
Just returned from Southern Cal......
Heading to Minnesota tomorrow.
One of the two main routes south from my home is closed for a major construction project, right at the intersection with the first major road south of me. To one side is woods, to the other side is a confusing labyrinth of one-ways, dead ends, and roads that don't run straight in the neighboring town. I was able to use the map on my Garmin to find a route that would connect me through to my street, and for the last several weeks, have been retracing that little blue line to get home quicker. The navigation feature wants to take me down the highways, which adds five, long traffic lights, and actually adds several minutes to the trip, as well as an extra mile.
Lovely time of year in gold country.
Only used Garmin to get to and from airport (2-hour drive). don't have Europe maps, so relied on iPhone Maps for that part of the trip. Did Viking Cruise and visited son (USMC) and family. Very nice time!
First trip back to the Blue Ridge Parkway since a deer committed suicide by Durango last month.
went for a quick Sunday drive,Last time for that drive as i am moving to Vancouver island on April 26th.Will update here when possible.
Ft Myers, then drive to Orlando.
Went to New Smyrna Beach, and decided to try the Grill at Riverview . Even though we've been past the place at least 5K times over the last twenty years, we never tried it. (and I lived in New Smyrna for a couple of years as well). Wish we had tried it sooner.
Though it was a bit pricier than the places we normally go to when going to the beach, it wasn't that much more (about $45.00 for two with a couple of drinks - the drinks were as much as the entrees' - but that's normal just about everywhere beach-side). Outstanding food, atmosphere, and the view of the Indian River is great (it sits right next to the old "pink" drawbridge).
It's now on or "must return" list when we are in the area...
... Fort Lauderdale ...
Lots of running around this week in North Dakota and Minnesota
in North Texas. Have a front moving through. Safe travels everyone.
take a trip down south.
keeping the windmill alive
Washington, DC to Akron, OH.
#1 Cheeseburger with a large diet coke... The best...
Of course I have it cut in half and my husband and I share it. We can not finish one by our self....
I am a hamburger person. I go for a hamburger in just about any restaurant I go to... if they offer one ... so I know what a good one is and "Giant Burger in Rhome, Texas is probably my favorite in the area, although Tommy's on Camp Bowie, in Fort Worth is close.
Hum job !!!
Gps to avoid traffic
the wife is going shopping again today. Who knows where the Nuvi will need to take her. If I could just get it to circle around and bring her back home with each entry we could save a lot of $$
Deep into the city of Detroit. Always great to have my Garmin gps. Even though I have not used it, my cellphone gps is a great backup in case of a Garmin failure.
Have a good week everyone!
Not many fish.
Going to Chicago this weekend. Actually the suburb of Oak Park. Visiting granddaughter and grandson.
Pearl Harbor to Waikiki
New front brakes on the mini (metal on metal on the front right; the wear sensor is on the front left, of course), then a new battery.
I do have greater confidence of completing my trip down to Los Angeles in a couple of weeks to celebrate my dad's 99th birthday.
When your dad turns 99, at least one of you is getting old...
the cherry Blossoms. That is one thing I really miss about Maryland/DC
Met with friends in Las Vegas and made a day trip to Death Valley from there. Had some problems with GPS, but later found out why on this board. Fixed it. My 1450 came in handy. Friends had a 1450 also and we could compare the two. I think I had the edge. (POI factory)
Heading out for Western NY this weekend
My GPS shut down when it got confused going to the George Washington Bridge in New York.. Weird thing being without my GPS in the Bronx..
He starts over at 00 next year. so it must be you that's aging.
As I often do, I used my nüvi 760 yesterday to travel to one of the offices I support. I didn't need the GPS function to get there or back again but I did listen to an audible.com book while driving. I love the old 760.
This is a new way to make more money.?????
WFTV.com channel 9 in Centraal Florida, Investigates shortened yellow light at red-light camera intersection, uncovered an error that could've caused hundreds of drivers to get tickets they may not deserve in Orange County Florida.
that is all
Going home after 10 days in Atlanta.
Leaving in a couple of weeks to attend convention in Las Vegas and if any problems with device I will note it here
Three week vacation (retired, but work two days a week, therefore still vacation).
Drove to Clearwater to spend time with friends, then over to Fort Lauderdale for 11 day cruise to Panama Canal. Hit Aruba, Columbia, Panama, Costa Rica and Grand Cayman.
Key POIs for trip:
Rest Areas, Cheesecake Factory, Steak & Shake, Bob Evans, IHOP and group of my main hotels.
...to confirm that my Nuvi 855 had 'full screen' junction view. It didn't, but I found my error (it un-zipped to its own JCV folder producing an extra sub-folder). Works now.
Used the 550 to go to Ocala NF last week. The 2497 does better at point and shoot.
We did a 1400+ mile round trip to TN last week and spent the better part of the week running around the Tri-City area. Was first big trip with new 2689LMT. Other than even after a week of use I still can't find things because of the UI change from my old 2460 we liked the new unit. Was surprised how seldom the traffic warnings were available.
One problem with the 2689 that may require an exchange, several times the unit went dim after a power cycle when making rest stops, I needed to go to brightness and change in either direction to have it pop back on.
