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.
Too tired to move...
Oh happy Day
Just around town...
Came up here for the weekend. Gps worked great for skirting some traffic.
i love my windmill
Have my 2589 for half a month now. Just discovered POI factory and joined yesterday. Today, figured out how to load POI's from this site to the nuvi. I suppose you've already figured out that you need Extra POI Editor. Discovered that Garmin BaseCamp will export CSV files, but won't import them; how rude! Extra POI Editor let me convert the rest areas POI file from csv to gpx format, which BaseCamp accepts. However, 2664 waypoints is way too much to load, so took a subset of those in NC since that's the state where I live. Discovered that BaseCamp allows a group edit, so changed icon to rest area and set the category field to "Rest Areas" on all of the points, then loaded them to the nuvi 2589. After testing it out, it all looks good.
But here's a "quibble" about the 2589: if you search categories for "Rest Areas", it only shows the ones in the pre-loaded maps, NOT the ones that you might add to the "saved" area. So if you're on a ride and want to find all nearby rest areas, you might have to search TWICE: once in Categories / Rest Areas, and again in Saved / Rest Areas. Hopefully, Garmin will address this issue in a future software update.
Have you any "quibbles", observations, etc with your 2589?

Nowhere recently, it's February!
There didn't appear to be that many people doing the run but it was fun anyway.
Actually won $ for a change!

...Kentucky, that is, to see my uncle. First trip I have taken since the most recent map update. Everything worked fine. I did notice some improvements in the update.

Going home via an alternate route when the freeway was closed.
GPS + Traffic worked great today to avoid several big traffic jams on the Interstate.
So beautiful in the Napa Valley at this time of the year.
Winter is back
for another long road trip, just can't figure out in which direction..
I LOVE MY WINDMILL
From Zelienople PA to Eden Prairie MN. The ol' nuvi 1450 with the large screen still working great everyday at work and for this 2 day trip. Making a route works best because it will recalculate different routes around Chicago every time you get off the highway for food or gas.
Nice warm day.
Just got back from Tyson Corner, Virginia
back home after a great visit with cousins. The Nuvi worked perfectly!
... to get a YETI tumbler.
Those things are great. Filled one with ice and sat it in my car all day to see how much would melt. After 10 hours still had 3/4 of the ice. Temp outside was about 59 for the high.
To see an old friend.
Use gps heavily around la and San Diego
My wife and I went to West Geauga High School in Chesterland this morning for a pancake breakfast. Every year for the last 60 years, the Kiwanis serve pancake breakfasts for the four Sundays leading up to Easter and today was the first one of 2016. What made today's breakfast special for my wife and I was the fact that today made 50 CONSECUTIVE years of us going. We went for the first time in 1967 and haven't missed a year since. We don't go every Sunday, but we do go at least once a year.
What made is really special was that unbeknownst to us, our kids were waiting for us there with a huge banner commemorating our visit, and when we walked into the school our kids and about 40 other people were there to cheer us on. It was pretty cool.
The president of the local chapter of the Kiwanis even took a couple of pictures for the local paper and comped us the meal. It was a special time.
