RE: Adios Rand McNally

Nope. The software starts with a blank sheet and has no import function. It saves the planned trip in some unknown format and then another piece of software (Dock)must be used to effect the transfer. It offers no options to import or export anything other than the original plan.

RE: Adios Rand McNally

Some very good information but completely off the mark. I am looking for a GPS unit that will allow importing of data from 3rd party software. I have a planner that I like and a GPS that I hate. I'd like to do my trip planning when I have internet connectivity and download to a GPS unit for when I don't. The Rand GPS will not allow for importing any file extensions other than Rand McNally's proprietary one. I believe that the Garmin units will allow the import of .gpx files. I am curious if any Garmin owners import any other files. Hardware issue not software. Thanx, Jim

RE: Adios Rand McNally

The Good Sam software (and their discontinued GPS) are made by Rand McNally. The software doesn't have some of the features I want and the GPS units will only allow imports from Good Sam or Rand McNally TripMaker.

Adios Rand McNally

I think I'm finished with the Rand McNally RVND 7730. I'm looking for a GPS that will allow me to plan my trip with a 3rd party software and import it into the GPS. Rand McNally will only accept imports from their (crappy) software. We travel in places that don't always have cell service so no apps please. Suggestions? Thanx, Jim

RE: Woodbutchers?

"I think you need to find a quieter hobby unless you are not going to use any of the power tools from that well equipped home shop. I know we wouldn't like to hear power saws, lathes, sanders, shapers, planers, and routers in the site next to us." " X2. Last week we were at a CG and there was a guy there doing some carving. That was really cool until he started using his Dremel tool. I can't imagine someone using power tools at a campsite. " I think you guys have the wrong idea of my plans. I'm not looking to set up a Production Woodshop. A lathe turning greenwood bowls or a scroll saw making intarsia operate as quietly as a TV and certainly quieter than even the Honda generators. Jim

RE: Woodbutchers?

Ron, I was thinking about a midi lathe and the Comet was one I was looking at. I already have a couple of lathes at home but the smallest one weighs 200 lbs. I have chucks and accessories that would fit. How do you haul your equipment? We have a 5th wheel with little storage room left. I was thinking of adding some kind of cargo box to my pick-up and was wondering how other guys do it. Jim

RE: Woodbutchers?

We have a Redwood 5er and a 1-ton truck with plenty of load capacity. I'm looking for a hobby not a job and need ideas of what works for others. Jim

I'm a woodworker and have a fully outfitted home shop. I'd like to do a little wood butchery while traveling but not sure what works well for traveling. Any other woodworkers out there traveling with their hobby? If so, what do you bring and how do you bring it? Jim

RE: Automatic Dish?

We camp mostly in the midwest and southeast areas where trees are the norm, hence the portable. I plan on a ladder mount but keeping it re=locatable should the need arise. Just trying to determine if I need to use both eastern and western arc satellites since we'll be doing a lot more long distance camping. Jim

Automatic Dish?

I've decided I'm through with the meter and phone apps to point my dish and I'm going to get an automatic antenna. There's a bunch of possibilities but I have a question. How important is it to have the ability to use western arc satellites? That will trim the field down a little. I have a 211z for my trailer since Dish has decided not to offer anything for the Hoppers. Anything else I should be aware of? TIA Jim
