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

Mass -> Acadia NP -> Return

Outstanding performance as usual over 600 total miles, some quite remote in the park itself through every little nook and cranny. All the tiny little roads and main POI's were there on the map as we drove along. Even the traffic worked well.

We saved the location of the campground where we were staying and no matter how far away, lost or out on the edge of the earth we got on some little dirt back roads when were looking for fishing spots, it always guided us right back with no problems.

Don't know yet, but I got here early for a change.

trip to death valley

Drove to Death Valley today from Pahrump, NV. There were very heavy rains there Thursday that knocked out the power to everything (Visitor center, lodges and Shoshone reservation - and that's about all that gets power). Power came back today. Had to go way out of the way to get to Badwater due to a washed out road. Badwater is the lowest point in North America (282 Ft. below sea level).

My 3597 was spot on the location at all times. Even the altitude display was stable and accurate. No bouncing around at all - even while sitting still.

My wife's Samsung Galaxy S7 lost everything almost the whole time we were in the valley. It had no clue as to where we were located. Not a single cell tower visible in the southern part of DV, where we were.

BTW - Temp at Badwater today was 120º F. That's the hottest outside temp I have ever experienced!!!!!

On to Henderson, NV tomorrow.

GPS and Oklahoma heat

The Rand McNally 7720 seems to be much better than in the past. I think they have improved their software and/or maps. We have been using it to get around in Oklahoma City and are pleased. The Garmin has fallen behind in our estimation. Big monitor screen is a plus for older eyes.

My recommendation is to stay out of Oklahoma in late June. It is 95 every day with no mercy. Won't be here in the summer again.

Just got back from Seattle

Drove to Seattle and took a cruise to Alaska. In one word, it was Fantastic! Drove back though Yellowstone and then across the Bear Tooth Highway. Great drive. One of the prettiest drives I have ever taken. Beats the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park. Noticed some improvements on the latest maps updates. Traffic seemed to be better and the unit was constantly showing road construction, narrow lanes, etc. Overall, this last map update seemed to include several improvements. Had a great trip, put 5700 miles on the rental companies car (which probably didn't make them happy), but we had a fantastic trip.
