I made the comment to my 5 year old grandson that I learn something new every day, and of course I had to explain it to him until he was satisfied he knew exactly what I was talking about. Now he repeats it back to me at times.
That is the way I felt when I read some of the comments to yesterday’s blog, especially one from Anonymous who said that if I touch the moving car on my GPS screen, it will return information about my present location as well as links to the police, fuel stations, etc. I had absolutely no idea about this, and I am very grateful for learning about it. I will pass it on to my granddaughter as well.
I recently became acquainted with what I could find out by touching the direction at the top of the screen, as well as the block in the lower left corner of the screen. Now I can go back and forth between distance-to-go, estimated-time-of-arrival, direction-traveled, etc. And I found by touching the top of the screen I can see the complete directions for the entire trip. Now I have something new to try. I always knew there was much more to the capabilities of the GPS than I was taking advantage of. I will probably never use the points of interest to any great extent, but what I learned today from Anonymous could be a great help in the future.
I would also like to say thanks for the comments about driving around Indianapolis and Columbus, and I will keep these in mind as well.
I’m just back from the dentist wearing a new partial denture, which I don’t believe I will ever get used to, but I’m going to try. I’m so thankful I lived as long as I did without having to endure it. I haven’t tried to eat lunch yet, but talking is going to take some getting used to. I may never smile again!
