It's a nice standard cable packaging size, with the clear text in red on a silver/white background and big simple words to add the attention to it. The sides of the box say the length of the cable which is only 1m and also shows the icon for the iPark app its supposed to work with.

AS we unpack it, there isn't much to go by, like not even and INSTRUCTION MANUAL, just the background of the map of some city and also the plastic the cable was placed in, which is okay but some people really would struggle to use this, it slightly implied you need to connect this to the car or some sort of power to make it work. But it does look like it should though, the cable is a reversible cable which is useful but still nothing makes it easier since that can break easily.

Well, I got the app from the playstore, its a free app and a 2.8 rating so we know people say its bad from the get-go. The screenshots are not that accurate either minus one.

I installed it no problem and it was interesting since it needed access to my location (which is on battery saving aka network only and that did NOT class as location) so it sort of avoided the point of using the GPS from the actual CABLE in the case of my phone. But hey, it would of been useful on a phone i had many years ago.. But well things go as they are.

|The app only does this. Not even the share works.|
Then it managed to CRASH when I clicked on share like really it just crashed, which is typical. So maybe I wasn't going to have luck with this. Glass didn't find it in settings either.
Well, I fitted it to a bike using a solar powerbank and well it didn't work. Mi fit was using the GPS of the phone. So cycling to my client in brentor was going to be not using it. But then I had to cycle somewhere different and that did seem like it was working at first.

Because of this, I stopped at a garage to end the review.
Let's be honest, its basically a USB cable that reverses as far as my opinion goes.
