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

Garmin 205, 260W, 1450LMT, 2460LMT, HEREwego for iPhone ... all still mapping strong.

quick drive

Made a quick drive down island and then back home

Local Exploring

I continue to use our 2689 and 2589 Garmin for local driving in our new state. It is great to find new ways to get places in the mountains of TN. My favorite is when I'm in an area that is off the beaten path and let the GPS find a new way home or to a familiar place that I know how to get to by backtracking and I don't like to backtrack.
