Garmin 5-inch Carry Case Fits All 5-inch Garmin GPS Navigators
Garmin 5-inch Carry Case Fits All 5-inch Garmin GPS Navigators
Offered by Markstore
Price: 14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality case, 6 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Garmin case is well made and gives a snug (but not too tight) fit. It is quite thin which has the advantage that it fits in a large pocket or in a handbag with ease. The disadvantage is that offers limited protection, I am not sure it would offer much protection against dropping, but it certainly offers protection against scratching and items rubbing against it in a handbag/pocket.

5.0 out of 5 stars B&D 9.6volt hand held vac, 6 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am heartened by the improvements made over the earlier versions, the 9.6 volt version is excellent, it has enough suction for cobwebs, crumbs and dust. It copes well in the car and makes a meal of the remains of my lunch! The charger is very good too - 360 degree put on and leave (like most kettles) no more pushing fiddly plugs in small holes. The usage time before the battery is drained is surprisingly long for the power. I have not yet needed it for longer than the charge lasts - because I generally use it for small spills, dead woodlice (where do they come from!?!) and general around the house bits or around the car it gives ample time to do the job. I am glad I got the more powerful version though, as I think a less powerful one would not suffice for the use I use it for (try sucking cobwebs with a 5 volt version - it just does not happen!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Only a small niggle on an excellent piece of kit, 26 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Garmin 2597LMT is very easy to use, good clear screen with an uncluttered look. To receive traffic info, you have to have it plugged into the power socket. However, it has to be the Garmin approved lead, 'compatible' versions only provide power!
The only fault I have experienced is that it is a little behind where you actually are, so in cities you can be upon the turn before the Garmin is. This is not a major drawback as with experience you can overcome this, however, my 2003 Navman does not have this problem so only 4 out of 5 scored. The features and usability is Outstanding, I would recommend this product - ps The graphics showing your position is a car, but when you go round a bend the car appears to do a hand brake turn! Quite amusing, but would prefer it to turn as of the bend!! Great piece of kit though.

5.0 out of 5 stars A touch screen for under 400!, 12 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great touch screen laptop, for the money it is 5 star, but remember that it is a very cheap computer so do not expect great speed. However it has a collosal terabyte hard drive. Serious value for money.

4.0 out of 5 stars WP or not WP, 12 Feb 2014

A good general guide to WordPress, it has enough to get you going with a few useful tips. It is not really a guide for existing users as it only covers the basics.

Excellent value for money, it is roomy and serves the purpose. One external zipped pocket and one internal velcrose pocket. If you are just looking for a cheap bag fit for purpose look no further.

This is a fabulous play list, it is well worth the pennies. If you enjoy a wide variety of musical styles which are British, this is the cd for you. Enjoy!
