Pharos iGPS-180

 

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good Alternative to Overpriced GPS systems

 

Less than 200 dollars Works with minimal set up allows you to only download the maps you want/need suprisingly good customer service and updates from pharos once you register the product.

Have to have a good, reliable, newer PDA to prevent lag and freezes.

Good Alternative to Overpriced GPS systems

 

Overall great value.. will hold me over until I can afford a nicely equipped Garmin. Make sure you have at least a 2 gig card for your PDA for map storeage.. I have a 4 gig and I used 2 already on maps of the east coast and south east Canada.

Less than 200 dollars ; Works with minimal set up ; allows you to only download the maps you want/need ; suprisingly good customer service and updates from pharos once you register the product

Have to have a good, reliable, newer PDA to prevent lag and freezes. (I have an iPAQ hx4000 and run with no probs but i know some who have run into a little lag with older models) Lots of wires... rather unsitely in the vehicle. A GIANT silver sticker...

Don't waste your money

 

I bought this to work with my IPAQ PDA. Initially it worked fine, but now it is hit and miss. Sometimes the maps won't download the software constantly freezes. Good when it works but don't rely on it to do so.

Easy to use and navigate. Includes great features that are easy to use while driving

Unreliable, software freezes. Never know when it is actually going to work properly

Slightly problematic for me at times

 

I have a Dell Axim PDA with which I use the Pharos GPS receiver. The product is kind of quirky, and takes some getting used to in order for it to work properly. I think at times I had to plug everything in in a specific sequence, or the GPS wouldn't...

Neat features, good product support

random problems with little explanation, requires external power supply

Product Specifications

The Pocket GPS Navigator is the perfect navigation solution for Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs. Included in this kit is the iGPS-360 convertible receiver with a sync-cable connector and car charger which powers the GPS while charging your Pocket PC simultaneously. The iGPS-360 receiver is a small, slim, and highly sensitive GPS receiver, and is convertible to meet your multi-functional navigation needs (i.e. CF, USB, Bluetooth with optional accessories). The iGPS-360 receiver comes with the cables that connect to the sync-port of your Pocket PC. Includes Ostia, Pharos' award-winning navigation software for Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs and detailed street-level maps (of entire US or Canada). With Ostia installed on your Pocket PC, locating your current position, or finding a destination or point of interest (POI) is fast and simple. Routes can be calculated and viewed. Once you're in your vehicle, simply activate the navigation program and begin traveling; the automated voice-prompts will instruct you when and where to turn. If by chance you go "off route", the automated voice will give an off-route warning. Simply push the "Action" button on your Pocket PC and the system will reroute you to your destination from your current position.
