Download 'Waze'.  Free and tells you where the naughty police officers are.

I bought THESE in July last year.  They are still going strong.  Less than a fiver each, and I do admit to using my phone when it's plugged in.  They seem pretty indestructable to be honest.

I subscibe to Amazon.  It cost's nearly £70 a year, and I more than make that back in delivery charges.

Apart from The Grand Tour, I've not watched anything on Prime, which is a shame as they have some serious 4K content.

The Wife can have basically unlimted books on her Kindle.

What's not to like?

The screens are a different size on the Vectrum ;)

Which is a problem as they're paired to the head unit...

CCRT2008 is 100% non Bose.

I have one, but you need the display for it as it's different again  :D a bit of wiring to do to...

I'm confused.  Are you saying none of the CCRT2008's were Bose?

I've had 2 Omega's with that unit, and both were Bose;

I see mad woman Gina Miller has tweeted this:

"Re-listened to #DominicCummings statement & a serious question for @SuellaBraverman AG & @BorisJohnson . Should Cummings be charged under Road Traffic Act 1988? I've had #COVID19 confirmed by #antibodytest & I can say it takes a long time to be fit to drive long distances."

Gina Miller, eh? So, it was all to do with Brexit.  ::) ::)

Two things,

1)  So he did actually do the right thing and take a small test-drive in a quiet location.....

2)  That advice is given to all women, covid + or not!

No I deliberately didnít, because it now depends on the Countryís reactions and, regrettably, the hunger still left in the press pack of hounds to chase this story. Watching the situation since the Cummings press conference, it would appear it is not over. So, in the interests of everyone, no matter how innocent or not Cummings is, he must eventually, within days, go.  If he does not the damage already done to Boris will be irreversible.

Boris must act in a Machiavellian manner and act in interests of the many, not Cummings. He must now be history ;)

The problem with this, is if he resigns, that would be an admission of guilt.  If he is 'asked to leave' that implies the Government think him guilty.

The MSM have much to answer for with the way they have dealt with this, and changes should be made immediately.  Of course, the Government cannot simply tell the Press how to do their job, that's not how a Democratic system works, but I think many of those reporters who have WITHOUT QUESTION broken safety guidelines should be in a meeting first thing tomorrow morning with their arses handed to them.

As for the general public who asked for his head at the first hint of any wrongdoing, they have been taught a lesson, and whilst I don't believe many will change, I hope at least some do!

He's got to go as he has become a political liability to Boris, and a gift to the opposition.
So, go man, go!! >:( >:(

A stupid move, and Cummings must go no matter what was the timeline and facts around the case.

Get rid of Cummings and Boris has got rid of the unnecessary distraction ;)

Isn't it annoying how the sheep can jump to conclusions and pull the trigger before hearing the facts?

Well, now after hearing the man what do we all think..................?

I must admit that for me his explanation seems fair enough in terms of two very important aspects;  first the security risk to his family, who were showing virus symptoms, by staying in his London home after having, he claims, threats made against him - then the risk and circumstances when up in Durham, but him staying in a separate house, isolated on private property.

So on balance, it is a great pity all this did not come out for the public days ago and his news conference was not before his boss's yesterday. But he is a human being, and we can make bad judgements; he acted as he felt best, even though perhaps he could have handled it better.

It's lucky you don't have a gun, Ms Zoom!  ::)

Not just the smart. A Fiat 500 Brabus stood on my arse at about 70 last week, waiting for a chance to overtake. When the chance came, it went past like a very fast Fiat 500.

Abarth Steve, Abarth.

Some of which had 160BHP from the 'factory'..... not too shabby for a shoebox with wheels.

Yes it's a van, but similar system I would presume?

If I add less than 10 litres, the Vivaro won't register I've added anything.  Even adding 10 litres, sometimes it doesn't register.

I get a countdown of miles before 'catastrophic failure' (you wont be able to start the van again).  I've tested it.  I was working in Cornwall.  I had 2x 10ltr cans in the back just to test if it really wouldn't start.  And true enough, it didn't.

I've also been in the situation where I've added 10 litres of water, plain old tap water, and the van didn't moan whatsoever.

I got to about page 3 (no boobs  :'( ) and thought IGNITION SWITCH. 

Give the key a really good wiggle when turning the key.

Regardless of Covid 19, I'd be up for that as I wouldn't have to listen to moronic other diners on their mobile phones.

Exactly this!

At what point did the population think it was ok to have a full-blown conversation/argument on the phone when sat at a dining table?

Thanks for the replies chaps.

Jim, thanks, but it won't work  ;D (Thanks to Mark for clarification)

Dave, it's a great idea, but I really want a neat solution that I can just pull out of the van and use.  I do understand your point of stupid prices for batteries, which is why I've accumulated so many Makita batteries (my tool of choice (fnar).  I've used adaptors for various products with great success, so hopefully this will work too!

Ray, Awesome, so you have one!  I've had to wash my cars/vans with buckets, and as such, it's more of a monthly occurance than the once almost daily thing.  Basically, I just want to wet the car down, then hand wash with a mitt and then wash the car off with clean water.  I take it from your reply it's more than capable of doing that?

DG, Please let me know if you do find out.

I've watched numerous 'reviews' on t'Tube and it seems fine for what I need it to do.  They aren't a lot of money, and I suppose if it's absolute garbage I could always send it back.

When I'm driving at night, I dim the dash so I can just see the dials, don't like bright lights, in the car, affects night vision

No need, just hit the night panel button!  A feature many mock, but makes perfect sense!

I hasten to add, it's unlikely drivers were written specifically for WinXP.
