Original Carly for BMW Bluetooth GEN 2 OBD Adapter - Best App for BMW with Android - Lifetime warranty
Original Carly for BMW Bluetooth GEN 2 OBD Adapter - Best App for BMW with Android - Lifetime warranty
Offered by Carly-Connected Car
Price: £39.90

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to install and use., 25 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This adapter works in conjunction with the smartphone app which you purchase separately. The app installs seamlessly and once the adapter is plugged in and paired via Bluetooth it's easy to access all the menus. I'm still feeling my way with it but it's much more convenient to use than a laptop which some similar apps use. The documentation is online and could do with being more in depth but the product is being developed continuously and will no doubt improve. Support emails are quickly and helpfully replied to. I'd give 5 stars once the documentation is better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the cheapest, but hopefully will have a long life., 19 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these to power a Roberts Vintage DAB/FM radio bought at the same time. Very pleased with the radio performance with these batteries. This is our first digital radio, and the batteries do drain more quickly than I'm used to on analog radios, but perhaps that's just a feature of digital radios. The batteries are quickly and easily charged ysing the charger supplied and there's no need to remove them from the radio. I'd buy them again.

I haven't used this for swimming yet so can only comment on the quality (seems good), and fit, which is close but not suffocating - I'm size 44".


Linksys Powerline AV 4 Port Network Adapter Kit

5.0 out of 5 stars Did exactly what I needed it to do easily, and with no problems whatever, 16 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose this starter kit because I'm a retired IT man and I trust the Cisco company to make a good product. The setup instructions are clear and simple, and if you're familiar with home networking you can probably simply plug your PCs, printer, internet-ready TV etc. into the adapters, switch on, and you're well on your way. Remember though that if your PC or whatever was using Wi-Fi previously it will still continue to try to do so, so you may need to switch off the Wi-Fi function and enable the Ethernet adapter unless this happens automatically. The 4-port adapter sits next to my TV, Blu-ray player, and Humax PVR, and all are plugged into it, while the single-port adapter plugs in next to the BT Home-hub with an Ethernet cable between them. Everything worked straight away.
Because I was so pleased with this setup I wanted to purchase two single-port adapter so I could network a second PC and laptop. My only niggle is that if you want to expand your network Cisco/Linksys do not appear to sell the single-port adapter in the UK, which I think is bizarre. I know that in theory all Homeplug-compliant adapters should in theory work together, but online sources suggest this is not always the case. I didn't want the hassle of buying a different make and then have the trouble of returning it if it didn't work alongside the existing ones, so I bought a second starter kit. I did wonder if the two would co-exist happily but they do.
The accompanying CD provides a utility to enable you monitor the adapters, and to name them (maybe according to their location?), and to apply additional security I believe, though I haven't really explored this.
Sorry to ramble on so, but in essence they are a great bit of kit that enables you to overcome the problems of weak or non-existent Wi-Fi signals in your home.

This review is from: Dear Fatty (Paperback)
She's nearly finished the book now, but regularly laughs out loud while reading it, so it must be funny. Might read it myself next.

Bought as a present for my wife, she loves it. Rugged enough to shove in a jacket pocket or rucksack for walking but chic enough for the office. Works well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reluctant at first!, 2 Dec. 2012
My husband was initially reluctant to use this product...I bought it in the hope that it would help his lower back pain. Having applied it just once a day after his morning shower - according to instructions and warmed - his back has gradually improved. He is carrying on using the lotion, now without my reminders! It just might be this lotion which has made the difference.
