TomTom Go 600 GPS Navigator Review

download (3)There is tremendous stress on standalone GPS because of a rapid rise of the number of mapping applications. Tom Go 600, with a 6 inches wide display has great visual appeal. You also get free traffic information and optional voice control using a mobile app. The price is a bit higher in comparison to other gps systems in this section but Go 600 offers more features with a bigger display. POI or point of interest database is amazing and has almost all the businesses for a particular area. There is nothing amazing about interface design and at times, the voice prompts sound complicated.

TomTom Go 600 has a nice elegant design on a plastic black body. The 6 inch touchscreen which is 800 by 400 pixels is capacitive. Customers can touch and zoom on the maps to get more quality for certain places. Smart phone users will find simple to use this GPS. On screen minus and plus signs are also present for the zooming. Total weight of the unit is 10.6 oz. and thickness of 0.9 inch. The product is thin and measures 4.1 by 6.7 inch. The back panel looks prominent with a large speaker. There is a docking port, a micro SD card slot, and a USB charging port. Power key can be found on the top side and looks a bit small in size. Dashboard mounting is done via a small suction cup. There is a small docking station that keeps the suction cup. The cup rests on the dash board. The car charger has a USB using which you can charge the system. There is also a USB cable for charging. You need to press the Menu key to know about the amount of left over battery. This is somewhat sad as there is enough space for a battery symbol on the 6 inches wide display.

Introduction To Wireless Chargers

download (17)There are scores of items in an average household that require a regular supply of electricity for their function, while others need to be charged regularly, such as notebooks, cell phones, tablets, mp 3 players, electric tooth brushes and trimmers. We have got so used to these devices that it is difficult to imagine living without them. The one thing associated with all these devices is an electric cable and the larger is the number of such devices, the more are the wires. Unfortunately, any lot of tumbled dirty wires makes a very unpleasant vision. Moreover, they can be dangerous and present the risk of your crumbling over them, unless you are cautious. The release of wireless chargers, which remove the use of wires, is an advantage, as by using them, one can function or recharge many devices.

It is already known that, with the help of electro-magnetic fields we can transfer energy between two near things, located near to each other, even without linking the two through wires. When electricity is passed through a wire, an electro-magnetic field is created around that wire. Other than using a straight wire, if we use a wire in the shape of coils, we can increase the magnetic field. By placing another coils near to the former, the magnetic field causes a current in the additional coils. That is generally the most crucial of function of wireless chargers, where the energy is passed on to the primary coils of the charging unit. As a result, an electro-magnetic field is established, which in turn causes a current in the additional coils of the device that need to be charged. That is why wireless charging is also known as “inductive charging”. Wireless chargers are super easy to use and known to be secure as long as they are used according to the guidelines of the maker. You are not revealed to any threats of dangerous radiations. This is a very secure and effective choice for charging for various gadgets. Wireless chargers remove the need of plugging-in so often! They will instantly charge any cell phone falling within their variety.
