Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – February 2019

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.

I received a suggestion this week:

"I'd like to nominate Mcginkleschmidt for Contributor Of the Week for
making the 2020.10 update's large .jcv file available.
Not only is it available but it's available in unzipped format. That was a heck of a nice job."

So this week's Contributor of the Week is Mcginkleschmidt!

On line taxes

Interested on some feedback from users who actually use a on line tax service. Have used a tax preparer for years but thinking about trying one on line. Turbo Tax looks good and is listed on the IRS site. Like others a little concerned about the security . Any positive thoughts?

Vehicles with Lifetime GPS Maps

I am thinking about getting a new truck soon and I am wondering if any of the manufacturers of 1 ton pickups have GPS with lifetime maps. Currently my Ford wants $150 for an update which I refuse to pay.

I would also like to be able to upload POIs.
