  • p45sc0de - Excellent ProductI had a problem passing inspection, b/c of a failing cat. Shop quoted me $1700 to replace it. Freaking Rip when I can buy all the cats for $600. I bought the cats but I don't have time to replace them. I got this stuff at the same time, used according to the instructions. Reset the CEL light, ran this stuff though the system according to the instructions. Did the drive cycle so everything "ready", no CEL. Ran it down to the inspection station, passed inspection!!! Drove it for about 2 more tank fulls, CEL came back on.

    Bottom line it served it's purpose, got me to pass inspection, saving me time to work on changing the cats at my leisure.

    I'm contacting the manufacturer to resell this stuff, b/c it works.
  • aenima49 "aenima49" - We chose this over a tablet for our childOur kids previously were playing with our old iPhone 3Gs that we set restrictions for & let them play games on. When I accidentally ran my son's through the washing machine, we were deciding whether to get him a LeapPad for Christmas, or just get an inexpensive tablet with a heavy duty case. I'm glad we got the LeapPad.

    -Lots of fun, educational apps available
    -No internet access, child can't make purchases
    -You can set your child's skill level/age, games are labeled with the suggested age and they seem to be accurate.
    -Very intuitive and easy for a child to navigate and use.
    -Stylus is attached by a string so it can't be lost.
    -Camera & video camera are fun for the child
    -Leapfrog connect allows you to purchase apps, books etc, download and immediately use
    -You can actually view how long your child played each game, what scores they are getting, and how they have improved in different skill areas.
    -MP3 player app allows you to use this as an MP3 player
    -Front and rear cameras
    -Photos, videos, drawings and storybooks are uploaded via leapfrog connect and can be shared from there.

    -The cost of the apps add up very quickly. If you buy the cartridges, at least they have some resale value, but then your child has to keep track of all of them, and can't play the game without the cartridge.
    -Doesn't come with the charger pack, which adds a lot to the cost of the unit. It should be included. Without it, you will go through 8zillion batteries.
    -Parent can't set an upper volume limit. The thing gets LOUD.
    -Mp3 player is a paid app
    -LeapPad2 Didn't come with the story book app, but the "story book" section is in the my stuff area, and kept telling my son he didn't have any, and to use the app to make them. So, we ended up buying the app.
    -LeapPad constantly references "tokens" which is something they don't do anymore, and a 3-year old doesn't understand why the thing keeps talking about them
    -It tells him to connect to the computer repeatedly.
    -The leapfrog connect interface is very slow and freezes a lot
    -Play isn't saved when you play under the "guest" user, and I haven't found a way to remove that so the child doesn't play under guest & get upset that their stuff isn't saved.
    -We've only had this since Christmas and have already had issues with it not turning off. I'm not sure if it is a problem with the charger pack or the leap pad, but it makes me nervous to think about how much $ is sunk in this thing.
    -There are lots of good apps, but it's still somewhat limited. My son really wants a Curious George game.
    -Camera is pretty poor quality. Most likely your child will take 10,000 pictures of random things, but in the event that they take a nice one, it would be great to be able to print it.
