5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish and superb!, 24 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very pleased with the Cafelat Tubbi Knockbox - lovely burnt-orange colour, nice matt texture, and it just works! It's slightly larger than the Grindenstein one we have, but looks more stylish due to having a less plasticky finish, and I think is slightly quieter to use too. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor product, even worse support from Garmin, 27 Jan. 2012
As many other have pointed out, it's impossible to load map updates for the whole of Europe onto your Nuvi, but what Garmin fail to tell you is that when you choose to load just one country (so that it will fit), it overwrites a lot of the detail of existing maps you had on there for all other countries.

Fine you think, I'll just use a SD card, as that was an option somewhere in the very long process I went through to upload the maps. Not quite as simple as that though, as when you logon to the Garmin software, it tells you all your maps are up to date (which you kind of know for the one you just loaded, but obviously not the case for the ones you had to miss out).

There is seemingly no option to let you upload different maps, and the Garmin website is no use whatsoever, so you need to contact Customer Support.

AND WAIT, AND WAIT, AND IN FACT AFTER 7 DAYS I'M STILL WAITING, WHICH IS APPALLING SERVICE!

Well Garmin, there may well be an easy way round the problem that I encountered, but until you deign to get back to me, it's got to be a ONE STAR for your product, and ZERO STARS for your service!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb little printer!, 5 Jan. 2011
Bought this as a second home printer for occasional use, for which it's absolutely perfect!

Very easy to set up, both as a wired and WiFi printer, with good print and scanning quality, including for photos.

Too early to tell how long ink cartridges that came with the machine will last, but as the printer itself is such good value, can't see I could have any complaints there!

Overall then, highly recommended as an easy-to-use, WiFi printer - considerably better (and actually more solid) than an Epson SX515W which I bought previously, and which costs twice as much!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite trendy, but good solid pen too!, 6 Jun. 2010
Our daughter chose this because of its trendy looking design, while we remembered reliable Parker pens from our schooldays, so thought it a safe bet - which it certainly is!!
