Road Atlas New Zealand (AA Road Atlas)
Road Atlas New Zealand (AA Road Atlas)

Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Bought for a road trip around NZ, 15 Aug. 2013

The map is accurate and has a lot of useful information in the front covers however the rules on roadside camping have changed since it was published so be aware!
The road network is very accurately marked and the tourist markings are really handy.

I love this thing, it just keeps sucking up the stuff on my computers and all my dslr pics.
Easy to use, convenient and really really small. I've had it 2 years now and it's only half full.

Small and surprisingly crammed with info, bought it when we were planning our 'big trip' and there were a few little gems amongst it, worth the money

This adapter works and will take stuff off a sd card to an iPad to back up with but the iPad doesn't like it( unsupported device warnings). We used it to back up our dslr pics and to publish those pics online while traveling.

4.0 out of 5 stars We got the blue one, 15 Aug. 2013

It's bullet proof and when used with a screen protector and baggy like a neoprene sleeve it will save your gadget from all the abuse you can throw at it.

3.0 out of 5 stars We got the purple one, 15 Aug. 2013

It's purple it has a zip and when I dropped it the ipad inside it survived.

We went on a big summer trip and the pouch discoloured a little bit, some of the cotton stitching for the zip came loose and got the zipper stuck.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheery, 15 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as an emergency back up for my 2005 Toyota yaris 1.3l petrol, the idea being if the battery flattened I would be able to get the car going. This said.... I've never used it on my car. Only other people's big engined diesel cars has tried to be rescued with it.

It won't be able to start any engine bigger than a 1.3 petrol and it won't start any Diesel engine.

It has a Noisy little compressor with lots of valve adapters which functions well enough.

The battery Holds charge well but when it runs out of power the power does tail off quickly.

Light function isn't very good but would get you out of a bind

Ammeter is accurate but bounces around for a long time while it makes its mind up on how much power is actually in the battery.

A very nice item that I gave as a gift for a health conscious friend. This was a well priced feature rich keyboard that i know will give good service for years to come.

My friend is very pleased with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Professionals choice, 15 Aug. 2013
This is the chopsaw I use daily, I've owned this model for 7 years now and it's every bit as good as the day I bought it.

The mitre arm is accurate to about 1/2 a degree when you tighten the catch ( which doubles as a quick release lever ) carefully, it has standardised preset positions built into the guide to speed up you work, all the numbering is clearly marked and hasn't worn away with use at all.

The bevel adjustment has a nice quick release lever which can be set out the way easily and it bevels over to 50degree's, the slider that saw runs on is smooth and accurate, the over under design of the bars is very good.

The machine comes with a variety of dust ports should you want to attach it to an extractor.
I would recommend using series 60 blades with this machine as normal contractor blades can whine.

An excellent crosscut saw with lots of features and its fully adjustable for accuracy over time too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good cutter, poor drill bit, 9 Aug. 2013
I am a carpenter, I bought this product to drill and plug a solid oak decking job.

I found the drill bits to be brittle when they both snapped early on the job.
However the drill bit is replaceable with one of a better quality.

I found the plug cutter and countersink/counterbore to be very sharp and it kept its edge well.
An admirable product for the price and I might buy it again when it wears out.
