New TomTom mount arrived

The replacement car mount for my TomTom GO 910 arrived the other day.

New and old

The change appears minor. The new mount is shown on the left, and has an extra lip protruding behind the connector. The old mount on the right doesn’t have this (more shots of the mount on Flickr).

The 910 snaps satisfyingly into place in the new mount, and seems slightly harder to remove. I haven’t taken it out in the car yet, but hopefully this suggests that it will not drop the connection like the old one did.

Again, kudos to TomTom for going ahead and replacing these for free.

MiniCards arrived

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about the Flickr MiniCards that MOO had just started selling. Yesterday, my free pack of 10 arrived (unfortunately the “10 free” offer is now over…).

10 free FlickrCards

The cards are pretty small, but very cool. They included an airline-style “luggage tag” (confirming that MOO are in London – as did the packaging).

Delivery ticket

Ola loves them too, and really wants some for herself… so I can see us ordering a pack of 100 each. Quality is excellent, they really are cards, and they have a nice matt finish.

First impressions (based on these cards) is that you want to choose a striking and colourful image – possibly a landscape one too, since the portrait ones I tried were not so successful to my eyes, but that could also be due to the level of detail in the images I chose.
