new gps and other info
Finally broke down and bought a refurb GPS to replace my 2008 or so unit. I no longer use wireless data to run the google maps on wife's IPHONE while we drive. Also solves any issues of trying to follow google maps directions which aren't the best sometime.
Price was right and it has the stuff I was looking for, especially a display of elevation as I drive ( personal quirk , can't really do anything with the info, just interesting to know)
I bought the Garmin Nuvi 2598 LMT HD, which comes with the Garmin Express app for the laptop.
Here is the interesting part. I have been looking for a road atlas that does not require internet connection ( like Microsoft streets and trips, which is no longer published.)
I'm not always at campgrounds with WiFi and my wireless data package isn't super big.
So, I noted that you can download the entire Garmin database to the laptop, thereby giving you a road atlas tool (including the million or so POI's) without internet.
As I plan trips and check mileage, don't always need a connection.
Just curious if anyone knows of another program similar to that.
