Garmin, I’m sorry

For the past six weeks or so, my GPS has been getting really flaky.  It started out by not letting me get on the interstates anymore.  I couldn’t get her to shut up.  She was for ever telling me to get off on a back road.  Then last week, she wouldn’t even let me get on a regular highway, like Rt 29.  Again, I couldn’t get her to shut up.  It didn’t matter if I chose the fast or the short routes. Last Thursday it took me 12 miles out of the way.

LOL….I was starting to think that Garmin had flicked a switch somewhere since I refused to update the software for 80 bucks.

Last week I finally got on Google to see if anyone else had this problem before.  I should have done that from the get go.  I went deeper into the settings and found out that the box telling it to avoid ALL highways was checked.  WTF??  I was about a gnats ass away from throwing it out of the window and buying a new one.  Every thing is back to normal now.  I’m such a happy woman!!

Another sunset from Miller’s front door…

I slept on my sofa again last night.  I fell asleep so fast that for the second day in a row, I forgot to turn my Fitbit to sleep mode.  Hopefully I’ll remember to do it tonight.  I’m curious to see if my sleeping patterns have changed any.

Update for $80? I was going to update ours and it was going to cost almost $200! I'd pay 80. Speaking of the wrong settings, I once (not realizing what I was doing) set mine for walking speed. That'll confuse the heck out of you.
