Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – October 2017


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.

Flew to Atlanta for a long

Flew to Atlanta for a long weekend. Great to have "Samantha" with me. Who would think...found a small Thai/Japanese restaurant in a fading strip mall with nice staff and good food.

Never leave home without my credit card and Garmin.

Last place was work. Not

Last place was work. Not fun, but pays the rent

PA to MN

In the last 2 weeks I did 2 roundtrips from NW PA to Eden Prairie, MN. On the 2nd roundtrip the zumo 665 hung up 3 times and needed to be reset. I had lots of rain to watch on the XM Weather. I use it daily so I'll have to keep an eye on it for any more problems.

A Retail Store

I took along my unit yesterday to alert me about when I was getting close to the store. I was thinking the store was a few miles ahead, but my unit directed me off the main road and had me turn into a side street. The entrance to the parking lot was accessible from the side road and not on the main road. I was impressed.

Last Trip

Drove a rental cargo van from Midwest to Florida. After renting the van found that the one power port that it had did not work. It had 3 usb ports, but Nuvi 3597 said wrong power cord or something like that when plugged into usb socket and would not charge. I have a couple of Anker Powercores and tried plugging one of them into the Nuvi. It immediately began charging. Went all the way to Florida with the Nuvi Plugged into the powercore. I did have to recharge the powercore from the vans usb ports occasionally which it would do with no problem.

I am totally sold on the Anker Powercores, they will charge anything. It made the difference of having a GPS to drive the 1200 miles each way and not having one. I had a cell phone I could have used, but don't like using the small screen except when absolutely necessary.

Last Trip

Through the mountains to Hickory NC. Lots of downed trees and power lines there from the tornado they had about a week ago.

Corpus Christi

Ran down to Corpus for a convention. GPS routed me through Rockport on the way home. Glad we only had rain; those folks are still picking through debris.
