Post your GPS name redux

One thing that has struck me recently is the number of people having various problems with their units. It reminds me of a sig line used by Motorcycle Mama a few years ago. She warned every one "Don't anthropomorphize your computer.

"In order to be old and wise, one first must have been young and stupid."

Harley Davidson Ride Planner

I use this to plan trips and it up loads all of my locations at once on my Garmin. It runs off of old Google maps I think. I wish it work this way on new Google maps. I was wondering if anyone uses the Ride Planner and if it how it is used on the new 2014 Harley GPS.

Waypoint symbols

1. Has anybody else wondered why the waypoint symbol set in Mapsource and now Basecamp does not include symbols on your GPS?

How hard would this be for Garmin to correct? Must be super difficult, especially since Basecamp is supposed to be the flagship editor and all-around tool for use in conjunction with your GPS unit.

I never get lost, but I do explore new territory every now and then.

Remembrance/Veterans Day

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Blockbuster Stores

We've been hearing about Blockbuster going out of business in the last weeks on TV. If that's so, why do we have Blockbuster stores still listed for sites around the country?
