GARMIN 010-11380-10 Mechanic with ecoRoute HD
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Cool Beans 08/14/2014

This review is from: GARMIN 010-11380-10 Mechanic with ecoRoute HD

Pros: Works great, gives all kinds of information to my Garmin nuvi 3590, like instantaneous mileage, tracking of my mileage via the EcoRoute tool, engine gauges like RPM, Timing Advance, Engine Load, Coolant Temperature,

Cons: Do not seem to be able to pair both the phone (for bluetooth call handling and parking location syncing) at the same time as the Garmin Mechanic is paired for engine and fuel economy information. The Garmin Mechanic also uses a Bluetooth connection, and it seems the nuvi 3590 can only pair with one Bluetooth device at a time.

Other Thoughts: Would be nice if we could pair the nuvi with both the phone and Garmin Mechanic at the same time, and have all three sync information or allow phone calls at the same time. Don't know if later models of nuvi will do that or not. The Garmin Mechanic will also sync engine data and trouble codes to the phone for analysis and clearing, but that knocks off the connection with the GPS. Most likely a Bluetooth limitation.

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-4GBSQ
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: My sister's laptop was having random glitches, and a Memtest86 showed the installed memory throwing a lot of errors in the higher addresses. I checked compatible ram, (Choices were limited for this spec) and while I had not used this brand of memory before, it had not only the best specs but also the best price. Reviews indicated good reliability, so I gave it a try. Memtest86 showed no errors, and CPUID showed that her DELL laptop had accepted the faster timings, and all was working to the advertised specs, thus giving a bit of a performance boost over the factory installed memory.

Cons: None that I have found so far.

Other Thoughts: I stick with well known quality RAM and avoid the lower end brands. The price difference is generally very small, you almost never have a problem with quality ram, and if you do they stand behind their products. My favorites are Crucial, Kingston, AData, and now G.Skill

Verbatim CD-R 700MB 52X Shiny Silver Silk Screen Printable - 100pk Spindle
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheep, no coasters yet. Seem to be good quality.

Cons: Found out that Silver Top OEM means NO coating of any kind on the top surface. No silver paint to write on. A Sharpie will In fact write on the smooth plastic surface, but it is nearly impossible to tell the top surface from the bottom laser writing surface visually. When you take them off the spindle, keep them oriented top up or you will have to let the CD Drive tell you if you got it in right side up. If the drive does not recognize the disk, flip it over and try again. Alternatively, you could write your label on the disk as you take it off the spindle, so you will know which way is up. Other than that, both top and bottom sides look the same.

This may or may not be an issue depending on your application.
