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

10 Years Ago, and More

The topic here about Zadmi got me thinking. In 1999, I was using a hockey puck receiver with Rand McNally mapping software on a laptop to navigate. I was driving an 18 wheeler. The maps were none to detailed, and actual addresses were hard to locate. It would get you in the general area. Sometimes it would take you exactly where you want to go.

Taco Bell USA and Canada

The Taco Bell USA and Canada file will not load in MS Street & Trips 2013. I have also tried to make a *.gpx file and it will not do that either. Any suggestions?

Florida Traffic Map (traffic counts, etc.)

I came across this neat little map while browsing FDOT's website. I had no idea that there were so many traffic counting devices installed.
