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

Free Garmin unit

I recently tried to update my Steetpilot c530 to the latest Garmin maps but was unable to. I contacted Garmin on the matter and they told me that my unit is not compatible with the new map updates. They told me that Garmin was offering a free update program for older units with had lifetime maps installed. All I had to do was send them my old unit.

User numbers

I just noticed that the user numbers are no longer displayed at the bottom of the screen. This has probably been gone for awhile, but I just noticed it is gone. I'm probably dense and after I hear from a few of the members here at the factory, I know I'm going to feel like a dummy but the questions needs to be asked; where did they go?

how many beeps

i notice sometimes my garmin will beep 3 times when approaching a red lite camera, other times it will beep 2, and even 1. is there a reason for the different number of beeps, or is it my garmin?

New member introduction

New member here. I've had an old Garmin eTrex Legend for *ever* (not really for auto use), but I just recently got a Garmin nuvi 57LM on clearance at Wal*Mart for like $75. I bought it on a whim (while on a trip) and have been playing with it along the way back home. Then I starting googling about a few (geeky) aspects of using it, and several of the links led me to this website.
