    265W Garmin GPS Bluetooth Navigator Features Color Touchscreen

    September 2nd, 2020

    Small product picture of garmin gps bluetooth review.

    One of the newest GPS units from Garmin, the nuvi 265WT, has built upon the successes of its predecessors and made everyone’s driving experience simpler and safer. This Garmin GPS Bluetooth Navigator combines the features of previous 200 model GPS units with a larger screen and newer options to make traveling from point A to point B a breeze. The 265WT features a large 4.3 inch screen that shows drivers 70% more of the road around them. Garmin’s 265WT features faster satellite locks, more on-screen information, and even a new photo navigation feature that uses images to assist in navigation.

    The unit comes standard with a mount and rechargeable lithium-ion battery for easy charging on the go. The 265WT makes navigation easier for the visually challenged by using Text-to-Speech technology to tell users “turn in 100 feet on Minnesota St” instead of “turn in 100 feet.” Perhaps the two most exciting features of the new 265WT are real time traffic updates and Bluetooth connectivity. The new model allows users to connect to their Garmin with any Bluetooth capable phone, making driving safer by allowing users to put their phones down and drive. By linking their Bluetooth to their GPS, users can dial out, receive calls, and even search through their contacts on the large 4.3 inch screen. For the perpetually late, the 265WT offers free traffic updates along a programmed route to help avoid delays. Garmin 265WT users love the ease of use and features offered by the new nuvi, though much like other models the standard map database on the unit leaves something to be desired.

    Tech junkies rejoice, Logitech has developed a remote to help remove living room clutter and entertainment center frustration.

    This Duracell Car Power Inverter Is Packed With Features

    December 21st, 2018

    Small product picture of a car power inverter.

    In a classic episode of the Simpson’s, Homer crashes his car into the water after driving off a pier because he was distracted by an assortment of technological equipment in his vehicle. Homer’s mini-oven, donut deep fryer, and fax machine may be a little unrealistic, but there are certainly items we’d love to have in our cars that we don’t have because the power structure isn’t right. The Duracell DC to AC Pocket Power Inverter can make some of your dreams reality though! This car power inverter is perfect for use in the car and features the ability to turn 12 volt DC power produced by a vehicle’s battery into 120 volt AC power.

    This car power converter from Duracell allows users to charge two items at the same time with separate AC and USB outlets, and can easily power a cell phone, iPod, video camera, or even a laptop. The Duracell power inverter is powerful enough to run these tools, yet small enough to fit in your pocket. There are a number of competing models available on the marketplace, but only this car DC to AC power inverter carries the Duracell name. Other models may offer greater power output and even surge protection, but they do not sport the combination of size and power that this model does. While the vast majority of online reviewers were pleased with their this 12 volt inverter, a number of reviewers noted an inability for the unit to charge multiple items at the same time. Certain reviewers had issues charging up laptops with this inverter while others experienced no issues. The success of the Duracell auto power inverter seems to be dependent upon each individual case. While many enjoyed success power multiple items or a laptop, others did not.

    This Jump Starter Includes A Great Balance Of Power And Portability

    September 19th, 2018

    Small product picture of a jump starter review.

    A dead battery can be a thorn in the side of any driver, anywhere. Dead batteries seem to have a knack for striking at the worst possible time when we are running late for work or to pick up our kids from school. You can avoid these setbacks, and others, if you are well prepared. This begins and ends with a Jump-N-Carry Ultraportable 12V Jump Starter. The portable 12 volt Jump Starter comes with 27 foot, four gauge cables capable of jumping starting most any dead battery. This particular model provides 900 peak amps with full size clamps capable of cutting through any level of battery corrosion.

    An added feature of the Jump-n-Carry battery jump starter is a built in flashlight to make early morning or late night jump starts that much easier. Jump starters are a dime a dozen on the market, but few of them can match the power and portability of this car battery charger. Better yet, the Jump-n-Carry model’s built-in flashlight provides a nice extra that others lack. Most online reviewers were extremely happy with their product; though among those who had glowing reviews for the product a handful had yet to use their unit for its intended purpose. The few individuals who found issues with their auto jump starter reported that despite a full charge it failed to perform its intended purpose the first time they used it. Don’t allow a dead battery to leave you out in the cold. While jumper cables are good option as well, but you can’t control when and where a dead battery will strike. The Jump-N-Carry battery jumper provides the ultimate assurance that you can jump start your car wherever you are, whenever a dead battery strikes.
