Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – January 2016

 

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.

Planning trip to TIBS - Toronto International Boat Show

Planning trip to TIBS - Toronto International Boat Show

After we got our 660 back

After we got our 660 back from a loan, we took it to a short jaunt to Chicagoland...
We knew where we were going for the most part, yet we were staying in a location that we were un-familiar with...
POI's came through like a champ, getting us fed, and to CVS/Walgreens when we forgot some things, and the pre-programming of destinations made rush hour traffic more bare-able.

--
A 2689LMT in both our cars that we love... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps that we have had literally forever.... And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!

To eat!

Took a 2+hr drive to Chef and The Farmer (in Kinston NC), always worth the trip.

Over the River and Through the woods

to another Christmas dinner that couldn't be beat.

Trading in an iPhone 5 16GB on an iPhone 6 128GB that my friend replaced the 5 with a year ago. Can't wait to load it up with apps and music!

I used to live near Shenandoah National Park many years ago. Hiked all the trails and did a lot of camping in the Park. Great memories.

Disney trip

Took a trip from Miami to Disney World. It always takes me there as usual. I just wish that they would make the turnpike as one segment then i map out the trip on the Nuvi. For some reason it will only give you the distance for the next segment from toll plaza to toll plaza. Not from when i get on to when i get off

i love my windmill

Tour profile states you have a 3597. You can set trip data to be displayed on the right side of the screen that will show the total miles remaining which also means the entire trip distance when starting.

No Travel

I have not left Long Island in over two years. Between work and family issues, I have been stuck on this rocky sand bar. Granted we are pretty much a self-contained society but there are times it is nice to go to the mainland.

Work

I have 3 days of meetings in Sacramento starting tomorrow morning. I'm staying at a different hotel this time so I'll let Jack drive me there. Of course, since I have an old nüvi 760, I'll also be listening to an audio book from the GPS through the car stereo while I drive. smile

heading south in two weeks. Need to load my latest POI files

Around Town adding Locations

I did discover that when a business is off the main drag (e.g., in a strip mall location), it is much better to save the location of the business at where you turn into the business drive rather than at the actual business. The reason is that if the parking lot is too far from the main road, the GPS may think a back road is the only access to the business rather than a main road.
