Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy download, harder to read (as it's in French). Love the fact it is possible to obtain foreign literature for the kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Had an accident and needed the video footage to show ..., 15 Aug. 2014
Had an accident and needed the video footage to show who was at fault. Hard wiring into the crashed vehicle was worth every penny, this is to allow the camera to continue it's epic performance without hanging wires from 12v sockets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just In Case!!!, 15 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Recently had to cut someone out of a car after an accident left them upside down in a ditch. Only had a penknife but made me decide to buy these to carry in the car. Arrived quickly and appear exactly as described. Hope I never have to use them :-D

1.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE - More Cash but Less Good, 15 Aug. 2014
I bought the GO 50 and spent 12 hours waiting for the map to download to the computer then and install onto the unit via the "MyDrive" programme (which is a backward step from TomTom "Home"). I then discovered whilst trying to activate the lifetime traffic and alerts feature that it would not link to any of my 5 mobile phones as it requires Android 4.0+. When I contacted Tom Tom customer support I was advised that this is clearly stated on their website...It was Not on the product information or on the "Is my phone compatible" link (but if you browse through their support forums with specific knowledge of a problem it might be "obvious" - I spent three hours searching and found it only after I was given a specific phrase). Next I discovered that the voice command function works only in the country of use: Set to English Language, country set to UK and then only if you are actually in the UK can you use voice command to find an address in the UK. If you go to France you will need to switch both country and language to French to find an address in France (I can hardly wait to visit Poland). There is always the use of the touch screen...BUT...the screen is 'Resistant and needs greater pressure than others'....meaning it is insensitive to touch and often fails to react as needed or expected.

The GO 50 has less features than previous versions, it is less user friendly, gives less travel information (Limit/Actual speeds etc.), it is not possible to alter routes on the move and generally very little is as simple as is claimed in the promotional material.

French to English Dictionary (Collins Digital Dictionaries) (French Edition)
French to English Dictionary (Collins Digital Dictionaries) (French Edition)
Price: £3.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Does not work on Androids or Fire, HD or HDX, 16 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought both these dictionaries (Eng-Fr and Fr=Eng) for our old kindle and they worked fine. We recently bought a fire HD and were advised, after much discussion with the techies, that they are not compatible in Kindle Fire, Fire 7 HD or 7 HDX (and discovered not with the kindle reader for android)...a retrograde development in the hardware & Software. The books are great even the search, but only with the right application. Wait until Kindle fixes the problem or find another app like DioDict. Read the reviews first to see if it's for you

Needed to modify the ring, clip, flint holder to personal taste which was easy to do. Holds a couple of fills and flints easily, I also managed to put a wick into the cap so there is a complete replacement kit in one package.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good case let down by slight misalignment, 2 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The gel protector fits the phone well but prevents earphones from inserting fully due to the size and position of the hole in the case. Good protection from low/slight drops
