Dishwashers - good for......
My XM was running rough, inlet plastic pipework all bunged up, short hot cycle cured, the car ran perfectly for a long while afterwards.
And apparently an MGB roadster wire wheel fits and comes out great!

My TomTom worked fine in the US the first time (after I'd bought the additional mapping) but when in preparation for my next trip I tried to reload the mapping - they'd lost my a/c.

It did have a glitch when I bought it due to "Leap Year Syndrome" & I can't remember how that was got round but neither they, nor Argos, where I bought it, were prepared to do anything about it, maintaining there was nothing wrong with it, it just needed upgrading!

It threw a wobbly a few years ago, being unable to find a satellite, that's when I first experienced their totally useless website (my son had loaded "America" & then restored UK/W. Europe) but, low & behold, having connected it to the PC but without doing anything, once back in the car it was OK.

It did the same thing when I was in Essen on 11 April & I only found out about this "rollover" nonsense when I again risked my sanity by going to their website. Seems my device is not one that's affected - but I'm not so sure. What I did learn was that there is a re-start procedure, which I followed & then it knew where it was - but I have to do that every time now!
