Garmin Nuvi 1490T 5" Sat Nav with Europe Maps and Lifetime Traffic Alerts
Garmin Nuvi 1490T 5" Sat Nav with Europe Maps and Lifetime Traffic Alerts
Offered by Best Digital Market
Price: 89.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor battery life, 24 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought to replace a three-year old nuvi 660 whose GPS module became unreliable and then failed outright.

The battery life of the 1490T is totally inadequate. I've had to buy two new batteries in four years and despite careful and regular charge/recharge cycles using a Garmin-manufactured/supplied vehicle adaptor, they fail within six months.

Very disappointing - will not be buying another Garmin satnav again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mirror quality is only so-so, 24 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The mounting clamps are good and once vehicle outfit alignments are set, these are fairly solid.

On the downside, the mirrors themselves are not good quality; I opted for convex in order to obtain optimum field of view but even when taking this into account, there are noticeable distortions at the edges.

I have an earlier Milenco set that use the 'rubber-banded clamp' system which tend to mark the vehicle mirror housings during fitting/removal - but the mirror quality is far superior to the Grand Aero ones and in fact, I'm thinking of transferring the mirror assemblies over to the Grand Aero clamps! OK, so using the older ones won't be quite so aero-dynamic but overall, they're lighter in mass and the field of view is better for the reasons given above.

Did not work with Galaxy S3 no matter what combination of phone charger/HDMI lead/TV we tried.
Have discussed the issue with local consumer protection/trading standards who are keen to examine this device.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor build quality -> electrical hazard, 12 Mar 2014
Three of these have been owned during a 6-year period.
Each has failed due to water leakage into the base.
In my personal opinion, this design has a fundamental design fault that at the very least renders it unfit for purpose and perhaps even dangerous to use. I have sent the last one away for independent examination.

5.0 out of 5 stars TV remote (Panasonic), 19 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Order processed and goods received within the stated time.

*** Seller please note - in our opinion the packaging was less than adequate (a single polybubble ("Jiffy"-type) bag doesn't provide sufficient protection from damage in transit) ***

Item was as described and worked immediately once batteries were installed.
Item is an original Panasonic product as far as we can tell. It offers identical functionality when used with a Panasonic TX26-70LCD (original Panasonic replacements for the 'correct' remote were considerably more expensive).
Product is highly recommended, however seller needs to address packaging issue.


CPR All-in-One Call Blocker

5.0 out of 5 stars Call blocker, 19 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Order received and processed in an efficient manner and the goods were received within stated time. Packaging good.
Device performs as required, however our internal telephone system needed checking because at the first attempt we could not get a 'line looped' indication (2 x red LEDs) on either Line 2 or Line 2. This turned out to be a defective Netgear ADSL router/filter combination that would not co-exist with the CPR device. Having swapped out the router/filter, all was well and we have been remarkably clear of nuisance calls ever since. Highly recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Replacement battery for Garmin Nuvi 14xx series, 19 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was a calculated risk buying this as I have some anxiety about the long-term reliability of Garmin products, having previously experienced major problems with battery life and failed GPS antenna/receiver circuitry with a Nuvi 660.

That said, this is a review of the replacement battery, not the satnav for which it was destined ...

Order processing was efficient and prompt. Consignment and delivery were within the (rather long) time-scale as stated.
Item was as described and packaging was adequate.
After a complex and fiddly operation to separate the plastic mouldings of the Nuvi, removal of the original Garmin battery was borderline traumatic as it was secured to the housing with double-sided tape. Once the connector was eased free, replacement and reassembly was straightforward.
I can't recommend *any* of the toolkits that are offered by various sellers of this type of battery as they are flimsy and a waste of money and time. Buy a single dedicated Torx driver set and use a thin plastic blade to separate the housing halves (I used the thin edge of the snap-closure lid taken from a 'Scotchlok' vehicle wiring repair connector).
The performance of the battery is still under review because I'm having the usual difficulties associated with USB-based 5v charging methods (the nuvi 1440T keeps thinking it's connected to a PC when plugged into a GARMIN manufactured car accessory socket adaptor) ... but that's a different kettle of fish.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Efficient and prompt order processing with subsequent consignment and delivery within stated time-scale.
Item as received was as described and adequately packaged.
Instructions were clear and concise regarding the need to 'cycle' the battery in order to build up its storage capability. Installation is simple so no further comment is necessary.
To date, the discharge/time performance has been most encouraging.
In summary, both the product and its supplier are recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Samsung N150 White UK Replacement Laptop Keyboard, 19 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Efficient and fast order turn-around, subsequent consignment/delivery being well within the stated time-scale.

The item received was as described and well-packaged. Removal of the defective keyboard was straightforward, however when installing the replacement, great care is needed in reconnecting the ribbon conductor strip into the main PCB socket. Also, care and attention is needed to ensure correct alignment/location of the small plastic 'nibs' along each edge of the keyboard assembly so that it clicks back into place in the main housing in such a way that no 'warping' is visible along any of its edges.
