So? What happened? I think many of us are wondering...

Comment by Joel Studtmann on May 23, 2018 at 7:15pm
According to the Garmin link, the GPS stopped near Glendive, Montana on May 2nd. GPS picked up again on May 5th in South Dakota and returned to Florida.

Small world, even by plane. I used to live near Glendive.

Great combination: Zenith and Vking-can’t beat it. I can’t wait to get my 130 in to my 601 HD! Bon Voyage...
