Uber

Uber is a great service for world cruisers. Not only is it cheaper than cabs but the drivers have a lot of local knowledge. When public transit doesn t go where I want or takes too much time I Uber. I was surprised to find out from my driver the other day that they don t know the destination when they accept the ride. It is not disclosed until you are in the car. So no turning down rides that they don t want. Interesting. Fair winds and following seas 🙂

Kudos to Garmin


My GPSMAP 2012 is back from Garmin service. While traveling from Norfolk to the BVI it started saying “holding” when turned on. Garmin told me that this meant it had lost its software load and I should reload the software from an SD card. The problem was that the SD card slot had rusted out. They said that the only solution was to return the unit to Garmin for service. Out of warranty service on a GPSMAP is a flat rate of (if memory serves me correctly of $899.) I was surprised and pleased when Garmin waved the charge. Apparently the inside was so corroded that they sent me a new unit. Kudos to them, what great customer service.Fair winds and following seas 🙂
