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.

Drove to Chestertown, MD Area

To visit a vineyard and enjoy a tasting event. Fairly new vineyard, young wines, good tastes. Back road navigation easier with GPS! smile

Gatineau, Quebec

Just for a meeting.

What a trip....

spent a month in Alaska and then flew to NJ/NY/PA area. The Nuvi paid for itself many times over getting us all around. Traffic alerts worked great too! Can't imagine how we did it in the past with just maps or written directions smile

They open around 5 or 6 and close around 2. Get some of the jam from their gift shop next time you are in.

Iowa to Virginia to Miami

We are currently on a trip from our home in Iowa to Virginia and then on to Miami where we fly to Cuba for 9 days (no GPS file for Cuba).

Anyway, our Garmin NUVI 51 has performed fairly well. It alerts us to school zones but I have not loaded the red light camera POI as yet.

Sometimes it has problems finding locations. You must enter the address in a format the unit understands. For example, the unit may not recognize the abbreviation for street. you have to type in the word street (not st) and then it will find it. Never had this problem with our old unit.

Too Hot

Left my Nuvi 50 in the cradle on the windshield for an hour. The temperature was 30*C. When I returned, the Nuvi refused to turn on. Took it off the windshield, put it on floor, turned on the air conditioning and after 30 minutes it worked fine. First time it happened.

When I was there in 2000 there were NO maps available anywhere at any price.
