Can't access Where to "Address" on my 2460.

I just noticed on my Garmin 2460 that when I try to add an address by tapping "where to" and then "Address", all I get is "No map data avaialble". I did a hard reset and I still get the same results. So now I can't add an addrss or search for an address. Anyone else have this problem? Any sugestions? Everything else seems to work perfectly,including my maps,

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share with us the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you use it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.) Anything to keep your windmill alive.

The Mall Labyrinth

In downloading the most current POI file for Starbucks and reading the narrative associated with the update, I was reminded of one confusing issue that malls create.

Is the store in the mall or outside the mall?????.

Universities/Colleges Nationally

Does somebody have a list of all colleges, junior colleges and Universities in the country? I found one with highschools, etc., which is great, but it's too expansive for what I need, and I don't know how to filter out the HS's. Thanks for any help offered.

Epoxy suggestions?

It's a long story, but I need to glue a stainless steel metal VESA mounting plate to the plastic back of my GPS. The GPS will be subject to considerable twisting and turning, so I'm trying to figure out what the strongest epoxy out there is.

As I've aged, I've become kinder to myself, and less
critical of myself. I've become my own friend.

I have seen too many dear friends leave this world, too
soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes
with aging.

New to this Maintainer thing

I tried to edit my Ohio Squished Penny Machine file. The search only let me see the first 50 records. The pennycollector website says there are 72 locations. My POI file says I only have 65. I am trying to see which ones I am missing.
