5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it should!!!, 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent item, well made, works effectively arrived quickly, and so much cheaper than equivalent items in car parts shops etc. For the money I expected this item to be a lot more flimsy than it actually is, but in truth it's a top bit of kit!!! ( My V70 is a 57 plate so the 2007/8 to 2014 V70)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent item!!, 19 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item works flawlessly with my iphone 5, it syncs with endomondo and runkeeper no problem, I did use Nike+ and thought this item would work with an iphone 5 to record my heartrate in Nike+ , however the only way to record your pulse with Nike+ is to buy a Nike+ watch, thus I have ditched Nike+, as I think that is shameful. If I am wrong about getting a heart rate monitor to work on an iphone 5 with Nike+ please let me know!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!!, 19 Sep 2013
I don't know what the people who haven't given this product five stars are going on about!! I had mine delivered and working within about fifteen minutes, it isn't the manufacturers fault if people can't figure out their own wifi etc!! It is a brilliant product and has made me even lazier!!! I don't have to get up now to change the stat in the hall!!! Great Stuff!!

This product arrived reasonably quickly, when it arrived I thought "there must be some mistake????" as it was such a small package, but it opened up to cover my new cantilever parasol easily!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, replaced my harmony one with a broken screen pretty much effortlessly!!!, 19 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having used Harmony remotes for many years I had every faith in this product before it arrived, it was very easy to copy my settings across from my old Harmony account to my new Harmony account for the smart control. Now the device controls all my devices effortlessly, brilliant!!! FYI I have a Pioneer DVD/HDD recorder, a Pioneer Plasma TV, Harman Kardon Receiver, SKY+ HD box, a futronix light controller and a challenge fan from argos. This item controls all of them from either of our iphones or my fiancée's ipad mini! Revolutionary!!

Having used it for less than 24 hours, I can now say there are some frustrating shortfalls, as others have mentioned, there is no way to rearrange buttons for devices and activities yourself on the app, and there is no provision for macro's or sequences of commands on the iphone app. I can copy macros across to the physical remote they supply you with but they do not work on the iphone! Logitech,,, sort the app out!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good product, 27 April 2013
I got this for my birthday and I just love the fun you can have with it!! The only downside is that it is quite small and I have big fingers and am sure I will lose the lens caps before long!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the money!, 9 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am very pleased with the webcam, it is smaller than I thought it would be, but that is not a problem. You can see live footage from it being used as a webcam here [...] I am very impressed.

It only got four stars as it does not have a tripod socket on it, which I would have liked.
