Garmin nüvi 2595LMT 5-Inch Portable Bluetooth GPS &hellip by Garmin

Start up from power off is less than 2 seconds. Satellite locked in is within a second after power on, in open sky. Better than many older Garmin GPS that I've owned. Much better than my 4 years old TomTom. The user interface is much improved. First impression: No more "recalculating". Garmin should have updated all old GPS with a patch to quiet this reminder. Not everyone appreciates it. It powered up and worked in one of the coldest day recently at -23 degree Celsius. Although I don't care much about blue tooth or voice command, I think voice command when works is added convenience. Garmin map has always been lagging about 1 to 2 years compared to new roads.

Seagate Expansion 3TB Desktop External Hard Drive &hellip by Seagate
I give it 4 stars. It works just as advertised. No surprises (good or bad, so far). The drive comes with a USB 3.0 cable, and a power pack. Everything works the way it supposed to.

Patriot Signature PSF16GMCSDHC43P 16 GB MicroSDHC &hellip by Patriot Memory
The price is the most attractive thing about this card. It initially worked well when I used it in my camera 10 months ago. I used it in my android smart phone about 6 months ago. 3 weeks ago, the phone could no longer detect and access this microSD card. I have tried numerous methods to scan or revived it both on the phone and on my computer. All data vanished without a trace. The closest I can get is the report got from clicking "properties" when it was in the the computer. The report said the microSD is now 0 (zero) byte. I understand memory does fail, but 10 months is a very short life span for a microSD card.
