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

time to reprovision ......

on my way to tucson.

Eastern TN to Western NY

Just finished this trip and it was a bit strange. Not sure if the new GPS is just getting to smart or I punched something in wrong. The night before I left I setup my route and it gave me two options one with tolls and one without. I decided since the one with was listed as 45 minutes faster to pay the tolls. Early in the morning I just turned the GPS back on and started North. Was part way up when I realized it had switched to the non toll route. Wonder if it took the day of the week and time of day in to account and switched which was optimum. The estimate for the non toll route was now what the toll route was the night before.

driving around

Using it as a pedestrian, how did you keep the battery charged? How long could you go on a charge. I am lucky to get an hour out of my 855 any more (with full screen brightness).

There wasn't any need to keep it on all the time. Replacement batteries for the 855 are cheap on eBay!

Hope you had better routing while in TBay that we did. I used to live there and go four/five times a year and the Garmin ADDs 10 to 15 minutes travel time, even though it sees the routes.
