4.0 out of 5 stars Motorhome focused big screen sat nav, 13 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for motorhome as one can input size and weight of vehicle which is taken into account in routing. Good visuals of Junctions and clear maps with wide POI data including camp sites. Op system takes a bit of getting used to after an iPad not the most intuitive. Needed to buy microSD card right away to allow map update to take place!

Excellent product, well made compact and quiet in use.

Downside is its a bit heavier than I had expected and storage box is huge

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally an accurate account of this significant event often used to judge the whole British bombing campaign in WW2, 2 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very well researched book, using information from eyewitnesses and participants as we'll as German (East and Nazi), American, Russian and British sources, some only more recently available. It provides an accurate view of the rationale for the bombing of Dresden by the British and Americans and puts it in a historical context. It dispels the myths promulgated both from the propaganda by the Nazi and Communist Government and the many writers who, since the war, have sought to sensationalise the event for their own purposes.
It is nonetheless a harrowing story of a cataclysmic event in which at least 25-35,000 people died. The death toll was made worse by the neglect of the Nazi government to provide adequate bomb shelters to all but a select group of the population. The book is well written and easy to read. It also provides an overview of the British bombing campaign as a whole, the policy and why they used certain techniques

3.0 out of 5 stars Locking knobs that don't protect themselves, 19 Sep 2013
Considering the high cost of a Thule bike rack these knobs should be supplied with it. The knobs rely on friction so once the bike is removed the expensive knob can easily be removed locked or not unless you put a bar between the bike clamps. Amazon were the cheapest by far to buy as extras and had prompt delivery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thule Levelling ramps, 10 Sep 2013
Chose these as good experience with manufacturer and preferred the material these were made off compared to competitors. Good levels per step. Quick delivery and good communication from seller.
Not used yet so time will tell.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fiamma aluminium panel, 9 Sep 2013
This is essential for Italy and pretty much the standard reflective panel for Europe apart from Spain. Another triumph for EU bureaucracy. There is little choice of manufacturer or competition in terms of price. It's well enough made but expensive 4 times the cost of a plastic one which is illegal in Italy and some other countries.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dry sack pack, 11 Sep 2012
Economic way to buy tried and trusted Exped bags. Clearsight not as flexible as normal bag but clear panel useful to locate items. Large bag doubles as waterproof liner for rucksack. Used for trekking and sailing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stainless steel support wire, 3 Oct 2010
This is ideal if you want to discreetly support a small climbing plant, althouth thin it is more than strong enough. It has no maintenance long term unlke galvanised wire products.
The packaging says suitable for cutting out windscreen glass but don't let that put you off.
