All of the components didn't work. What I needed most was the car charger and it does not work. Not happy.
Turns out, the car charger does work, just not in every type of vehicle. So I will give it another star because of that. I gave it to my friend whose car it does work in. It is working in someone's car at least so it is being used.
The first issue was merely a blown fuse. So it started working great, but broke in just a few weeks. The male end that goes into the GPS came apart. I had one of those "DUH" moments that makes you say to yourself, "I should have seen it coming". The COILED CORD is a real terrible idea; it creates constant tension at both ends. Something eventually had to give and it's no wonder that it was the most delicate point of contact. You know, when I plugged it in I had a bad feeling.
To sum it up, I'm now giving it 4 stars. I'm not faulting the seller - heck, I bought it and should have considered what the coiled cord might do. The flaw wasn't in the craftsmanship, it was in the design. So I've learned a lesson and didn't have to pay very much for it. And the other items worked fine and still do. I would buy from them again. I just need to use the ole noodle and listen to the little voice that tells me, "are you sure about this?".:)
