    Does not fit my 4.3" GPS

    posted by topcat on 06/28/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    If I really really try I can just squeeze my GPS into this case. It seems like it should protect it OK. It is really hard to find GPS cases because searches do not work well for 4.3.
    Cons:
    Does not really fit my 4.3" GPS (Navig8r g43). My GPS is 9cm wide and the case is 8cm. The case is also too long by 1cm. N...

    Just what I needed

    posted by topcat on 04/06/2009 Certified Owner

    It would be nice if there was an exact match for the slots in my watch but given the number of different watch backs I suppose ...

    Good

    posted by topcat on 04/06/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    There are lots of them. They are cheap. They do the job. What else can you say about batteries? They are nice and shiny. There is some writing on them.
    Cons:
    Quite a few had moved around in the packet. Tested a few and some had less charge than the others.

    Does the job

    posted by topcat on 04/15/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    I tested it around the house. It detected electrical cables on the surface and within the wall cavity. It also detected sheet metal under the plasterboard. I've always worried about drilling into power cables so this tool should prevent that possibility. It...
    Cons:
    It cannot detect power within metal conduit or where power is close to metal. It did not detect nails in the wood. Build qualit...

    posted by topcat on 09/20/2007 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Soft, squeezable, looks weird

    Cut bigger boxes

    posted by topcat on 09/12/2007 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    More useful than the little boxes. Solid plastic with metal springs so that the lid flips open. One of these matches 3 of the little ones in length, same width.
    Cons:
    Pretty expensive compared to other storage solution, e.g. used vegemite jars!
