Does everything - No complaints

 

This tiny GPS is perfect! I have no complaints about it whatsoever. I've used it with two of my Windows Mobile PDA/Cell phones (Palm Treo 700w and Verizon VX6800). It's small enough to fit in my pocket with plenty of room for everything else. It's a...

Receives well, blutooth, USB (power and data), very small, car adapter

I found no cons

good luck

 

Did I mention that thier support is, well, somewhat less than helpfull? I work in a support center for a major software company. If one of our techs sent that response, they would have been escorted out the door.

Works for some things, connects to my laptop, doesn't work with Google maps like 2 other major GPS devices do

Could not get it to work with my Motorola Q. Emails took a day to get a response. This is what I got... "I would suggest for you to do a bit of research online to check if there is a way that you could hack into the phone and find a way around this...

A perfectly decent GPS for WM smartphone

 

I use this with my BT-enabled Verizon Samsung SCH-i760 and Google Maps, Windows Live Search and Destinator mapping software, and it works like a charm. Typical time to acquire satellites is anywhere from ten to thirty seconds, which is plenty of time...

Small, lightweight, holds a charge for a good long time, versatile ; can be used either with the bluetooth dock or with a separate usb cable

Sometimes a tiny bit slow acquiring satellite signals. A more conventional charger would have been nice

PHAROS PT120 Bluetooth GPS Receiver

 

I belive Streets and trips does not work because it only supports NMEA 2.0 and Pharos device is NMEA 3.1. When I use software written for NMEA 3.1, works every time.

Size, Price

Difficult for novice to figure out

Works Great

 

I would recommend this to anyone with a carputer or in need of a bluetooth gps device.

Works great with Iguidance 3.0 and 4.0

Can be hard to use for the average computer user, took a little tinkering. It doesn't seem to like map point or streets and trips, but once it is connected it works great.

PT120 Bluetooth GPS Navigator

 

I bought this PT120 bluetooth gps receiver 2 weeks ago and am very happy with it. It's very light weight and compact in size. I can put it in my pocket without noticing it. It has a long battery life of around 11 hours according to manufacturer's data....

fast response, small size, light weight, long battery life

looks easy to break, charging battery takes some time

Product Specifications

The Pocket GPS Navigator is the ultimate navigation solution for Windows Mobile Based Devices like Pocket PC's or Pocket PC Phones. The package features an award-winning convertible iGPS-500 receiver and Ostia Navigation and Routing software with detailed street-level maps, and a Bluetooth dock that wirelessly sends your accurate position information to your Bluetooth-enabled Pocket PC or Pocket PC Phone. The convertible iGPS-500 receiver is a small, slim, and highly sensitive GPS receiver, and can be upgraded to meet your multi-functional navigation needs. Ostia helps you locate your current position, find a destination or point of interest (POI) and get a route to your destination. Simply activate the GPS navigation program and begin traveling; the automated voice-prompts will tell you when and where to turn. If by chance you go "off route," Pocket GPS Navigator will reroute you to your destination from your current GPS position.
