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

On line taxes

Interested on some feedback from users who actually use a on line tax service. Have used a tax preparer for years but thinking about trying one on line. Turbo Tax looks good and is listed on the IRS site. Like others a little concerned about the security . Any positive thoughts?

In dash GPS wins, well yesterday it did

I have an in dash Garmin based GPS (430n) in my 2013 Jeep Wrangler. It works as expected and POI's can be loaded, albeit painfully.

Vehicles with Lifetime GPS Maps

I am thinking about getting a new truck soon and I am wondering if any of the manufacturers of 1 ton pickups have GPS with lifetime maps. Currently my Ford wants $150 for an update which I refuse to pay.

I would also like to be able to upload POIs.

It's been awhile since we've recognized, Box Car, so I'm happy to be able to take the opportunity to do so again.

This last week he was involved in providing clear and helpful answers to questions on multiple discussion topics.

We appreciate the thoughtfulness he puts into sharing his experience with us.

Thanks, Box Car!

Have you guys ever gotten a "special dividend?"

I can't really think of any. I remember seeing Costco was giving shareholders $7/share and thinking wow, that is good stewardship. They pump success/monies back at the stakeholders.

maps for computer

I have an 11 inch laptop with a GPS. I would like to have US road maps on my computer that I can use offline and that I can add POI's to.
Google maps only let you download a small area. Any idea where I can download a road map of the USA?

Roav Bolt Vs. Roav VIVA Vs. Roav VIVA Pro

I know that Roav is an Anker brand. I have some Anker cables and chargers they are good quality. I have seem the Roav products in Wal-Mart and Best Buy, but Ihave no experience with them. Is anybody here using one of these? If so, how well do they work? Is it essentially the voice from Google Maps?

Your GPS dies, do you buy another?

I've thought about this recently. I have and maintain 3 Garmins, for myself, spouse, and parents. What would I do if the Garmins start to no longer function?
