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

Waze Experience on a long trip

We drove from Toronto to Quebec city last week. I rented a vehicle with Carplay with the thought that I would connect my iphone and use Waze.

This week we're recognizing, CraigW!

For over eleven and a half years, CraigW has been a mainstay in the forum discussions.

Last week he was specifically helpful in these discussions:

Allstays POI
Zumo 395LM (Is There A Way To Eliminate The Europe Map?)
Large JCV File (D3060300A.JCV) Download Link
Is Garmin Map Updater Still Working?

And he updated two of his FAQ's.

RR crossings

There are recent articles on GPS and RR crossings with both Garmin and Tom Tom receiving some credit.

I know my DriveLuxe announces RR crossing and wonder how many other Garmin devices offer the same.

Rather than post a link to an article, do a browser search for Navigation apps still lack railroad safety info the NTSB requested

Interesting.

was a very expensive July

between a child's broken bone (this is shocking how much it costs starting with a $4,200 emergency room bill), tree falling during storm, central AC going kaput, lol

Logging out

I wonder if others have this issue.

Several months ago, I began to logout from The POI Factory after visiting the site rather than staying logged on continuously except for the every week or two re-logon.

Track-up display

I have a Garmin 2460 that I use routinely in track-up display and prefer this orientation. I have recently started to play around with the in car screen on my 2018 Equinox and my Samsung Galaxy A50 phone. I can get the maps up and enjoy the display except for the life of me I can't figure out how to get to a track-up display or if it is at all possible.

Anybody have any ideas?

EPE is available once again

My ESX virtual host took a dirt nap. Since it is simply a pet project of mine and not generating any cash, it's replacement has to be set on a back burner for a spell. I'm hoping to have it up in a week or two, but it is going to take quite a bit of ingenuity since I don't have another host I can simply swap parts into. Shame on me hoping it would last forever...

I will keep you all posted.
