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.

Weekend trip up to the cottage for a nice super hot weekend before we go off to Cancun for a week! Incredible weather up in Canada right now.
Rode the Autotrain from Sanford Florida just before Hurricane Irma struck the State. After leaving the train in Lorton, VA we used our Garmin NUVI 2460 to proceed by car to NJ. Our GPS dropped the ball big time. We ended up off the highways and onto Washington, DC side streets. We lost an hour of drive time as a result. The unit had the latest map update and the settings were at default (normal).
After experiencing the problem I decided to try Waze on the return leg which seemed more accurate. However, even while plugged in the battery on my new phone ran out.
Any thoughts or suggestions?

I've always had trouble with GPSs taking a route straight through DC and it's horrible. Just know that if you don't want to go through DC, then get on I495 and stay on it till you get to Exit for I 95N.
You can also go into to Settings>Navigation>Custom Avoidances>Add Avoid Area and block the entire area inside the I495 circle.
As for your phone, get an aftermarket charger that provides a higher amperage charging current. Something with at least 2 amps.
is northern PA, really northern....
For a 4 day retreat.
to Oxford, MD and the Highland Ice Cream Store. One of the 10 best in the US!
Trip to Florence South Carolina
Out and about
Rode south from Melbourne to Sebastian and back up 1. It is always a nice ride. We didn't see much damage along the route, compared to what we saw in Rockledge and Cocoa.
and went to the Rocky Mountain NP. Very nice place
Packing up for a vacation tomorrow. Hopefully the weather turns out better than planned right now!
To photograph the Milky Way!
Trip to the Fall harvests.
Went on a nice drive to an Ohio farm.
Staying home this weekend since Renfest is starting and I don't want to mess with the traffic.
Salamanca New York
back home from visiting cousin in CA.
Had to drive over to the next county on a 'donut' spare tire to get a flat fixed, and I needed a slow (max 50 mph) route. Had a heck of a time getting Google Maps to plan that.... but I got 'er done!
Note to self: Next time, use Google My Maps instead.
Helping a friend move.
Just got back from a 2 day run to add to my Iowa counties for finding geocaches. It's the first time I made an intentional run like that, but I just got 16 new counties (not contiguous, not starting with my home or surrounding counties) on an almost 700 miles run. That gets me to just 61 out of 99. It's beginning to look more and more like getting the rest could be a retirement project someday.
Taking a short trip to Ladysmith..
To Yosemite NP
Target, Walmart, Best buy and Toysrus
Went to Palm Springs, CA a week or two ago. In the past, my GPS tried to guide me through Hemet and San Jacinto, when in fact, that would add gobs of time to my trip coming from San Diego. This time, it did not. I did not change any settings since last year so that's not it. Just glad to see it behave this year.
Nowhere special this week.
