5.0 out of 5 stars Great for children or adults with small hands, May 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
No slipping with the supplied clamps secured on each end of the grips. The material and texture used provide a most confident hold for the small hands of children or others with hands much smaller than large adult male hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Withstands civil construction abuse, April 26, 2014
I have both the Casio Ravine and Ravine 2 ; both are protected by Skinomi. The Ravine has had Skinomi on the phone for approximately three years, and the Ravine 2 for about a month. The product works very well and application is simple. My three year old Ravine has been with me in an open leg pocket on civil construction jobsites all this time. It gets very dusty (dirt and concrete dust), and yet the Skinomi still looks great. Definitely a great product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely satisfied, January 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am using the TomTom Universal Dashboard Mount for two vehicles with very different dashboard configurations. The product has performed flawlessly. It is heavily weighted in the thick part behind the mounting surface. The underside has a textured rubber-like surface which holds well to the dashboard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Head-long into the GPS fracas!, January 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have waited approximately five years for a clear winner to emerge in the GPS device and service market. My criteria was simple: wait for a product which had consistently good reviews for both hardware (device) and software (navigation instructions). All GPS providers continue to receive consistently mixed reviews; many people thoroughly dislike the devices, services, or both while many give the highest accolades. Now that the price for entry into this market has dropped to about one quarter of what it cost five years ago, I have taken the plunge. Here are my initial findings. Several updates will be provided over the length of one year of usage.

The following is for the TomTom VIA 1505TM:

1) I updated the firmware first (deselected maps and speed camera), then updated maps and then last of all speed camera locations. Do this prior to using the device. Updating was easy; connect the device to a computer, download My TomTom software, then download the recommended updates. Make sure computer settings are such that the computer will not go into standby or hibernate. The maps download is lengthy. Once the download started, I walked away and let the computer handle it. Again, make sure computer settings are such that the computer will neither standby nor hibernate.

2) Lifetime maps and traffic are available until TomTom no longer supports the device. Traffic can be terminated separately. Don't count on having updates until your device is unusable due to a hardware malfunction.

3) The GPS unit knows exactly where I am at any given moment and it knows how to get me to my destination. It has always brought me where I programmed it to take me. The estimated time of arrival given on-screen has consistantly been accurate.

4) Lane guidance (which lane to be in) on highways with multiple lanes is excellent. Turn notification both on highways and secondary roads is outstanding. Notice of distance to each turn is given and then notice is given to turn immediately before each turn, both of which have been highly accurate. At times I have intentionally changed my course from the directions given and found the GPS service to consistantly quickly re-route me.

5) Speaker volume is very good. The screen is clearly visible. Occaisionaly the sun shines directly on the screen reducing clarity. An easy fix for this occaisional occurance is to angle/tilt the screen down towards the dash. Again, this has not happened often and has not caused any navigation problems.

Separately, I would like to recommend the TomTom Universal Dashboard Mount. The product works very well and is much more convenient than using a windshield mount. It is available from Amazon.com.Universal Dashboard Mount (Compatible with All GPS Brands)

The Summer Infant Elite DuoMat car seat protector does the job well. I have used One Step Ahead protectors; my preference is the Summer Infant Elite DuoMat.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best oil filters, March 12, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Purolator Pure-One oil filters are the best. Bosch owns the brand and is a well respected name in the industry. The new textured surface is a great feature which allows for easy tightening and removal of the filter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always prefer high quality, March 12, 2010

I have always experienced top-notch performance from NGK spark plugs. When changed at the vehicle manufacturer's scheduled interval of thirty thousand miles, these "V-Power" spark plugs display little wear.

If you want to add a modicum of peace in your home, give your children puzzles; remove (at least temporarily) the incessant din produced by so many other toys. High-quality Ravensberger puzzles are made in Germany. Although not indestructible, these puzzles stand up well to a 3-plus year old's somewhat rough treatment. My children enjoy both cooperative as well as independent play when piecing together puzzles, which keeps them occupied in a way that engages their cognitive abilities. Ravensberger puzzles are definitely among the best!
