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

Native mapping software for Mac (or PC) with easy POI loading

I switched to a smaller rig and gave up my Datastorm antenna which had given me internet access and campground info anywhere, anytime. I mostly do dispersal camping and rarely know when and where I’m going next and rarely have internet access. To duplicate that anytime/anywhere internet access, I now needed mapping software on my computer which would let me load POI's easily.

Forced to Windows 10

Well, I have had two computers - on their own - start the process of updating from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I found my home desktop just beginning the process and was able to kill it and have it revert to Win 7.

One of the computers in our Television Ministry at church actually finished the update and was asking for us to accept the Terms. We pressed "Decline" and it let us revert to Win 7.

Check your maps! Lession learned the hard way!

Ugh
I had gotten everything ready or our trip back east. All of the points of interested that we needed were created and loaded into my Garmin, the power cable was ready to go, and then I made a fateful decision... I updated my maps.

New to the site, not new to nuvi's

Hi, not new to the site (been a lurker) for a while.
Finally registered and hope to be part of the community.

I've been using Garmin Nuvi's since the 350.
Currently have a nice little 3590 that does the job great!

Thanks for letting me be part of the community

Using Here Maps

I recently noticed that using Here maps offline with bluetooth activated on my cell phone, the voice prompts disappear. Turning off bluetooth will bring it back to life. Does anybody experience the same?

Replace battery?

Has anyone attempted to replace the battery in their GPS?

How long has your original battery lasted?

Triumph Motorcycle Dealers

I searched and found an old gps and csv file from I think '08.
I contacted Triumph USA and asked them about gettting a gpx file, they sent me a current dealer list in PDF.
I am working on making a GPX file from the US.

Anyone want to check it and tell me what I have done wrong?
I am using a spreadsheet to edit the CSV and then check it with the Extra POI Editor.

Automobile GPS model with user replaceable/rechargeable batteries?

Well, another fing GPS nuvi with a dead battery!

We were planning on buy a new 2016 Ford Edge SEL with the navigation package... BUT THAT PACKAGE COMES WITH LEATHER SEATS!

NFW!

Does some brand have an automobile GPS with user replaceable batteries?

I have done a lot of googling and looks like all the brands say, "Please contact Support.........."
