Summary: Today I'll be spouting about the Pharos Science PDR135 Automotive GPS Receiver. I got mine used on eBay for a very low price and it came with all the accessories including the box as new. Being an older unit I was content with some street names being the old style, however it showed our street as Cove as it should rather than Place where even the most popular PC mapping programs had this anomaly.
Summary: I purchased this product for my grandmother. So I didn't need all the bells and whistles as with other units. Pharos offers free maps which is great but it is limited to 3 a day. I decided to use it for a bit to get to know the system and that's where the problems started. The display is fairly decent in size but is kind of overly sensitive. You have to touch dead center on the letters when entering addresses.
Summary: Crappy piece of junk. Cons : 1> Cannot find destinations most of time. 2> stops in middle of journey and searches for signals... 3> takes a long long long long time to get signals. 4> battery dies down daily and needs to be recalibrated often. Frustrating, I pretty much was about to throw it out of my window on I 95. Do everyone a favor. do not buy this [...].
Summary: I bought this and did not really even know anything about a GPS. I am SUPER happy with this thing. EXTREMLY easy to work. I must admit it is a bit outdated considering there are some new homes that have been built in our area in the last year or so, but I LIKE it. I like the fact that it is USER FRIENDLY. Plug and play item with a NICE tough case.
Summary: This is the first GPS I have ever purchased. The unit is nice and appealing. Its a little older nowadays but does what I need it to. The map is easy to read and battery life is really good. ( i get about 3-4 hrs a charge )Support for the product is good through pharos ( i was missing the companion cd, and they sent it out to me free of charge ) Now right after I purchased this unit I purchased another ( pioneer AVIC-S1 ) which also is a little outdated nowadays but I...
Summary: I bought the Pharos Science (PDR135) GPS Receiver 2 weeks ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this inexpensive unit. size is perfect for carrying in a pocket if you have big pockets lol and the battery has a pretty good lifespan . Overall, I'd recommend the Pharos Science (PDR135) GPS Receiver if you're on a budget.
Summary: We decided to buy it because my husband picks up junk cars from different addresses and it helps with his work. He has never complained about it or says what he likes or dislikes about it except that it comes in handy for work.
Summary: It is the worst product I ever used. I bought it in Dec 2006. I used it for just several times during the following half an year. Both its software and hardware suck! Its map and directions have too many errors. Not clear voice reminder to turn. Display is very confusing. And it dies from time to time. I have to reset it for many times when I was driving on the highway. In May 2007, I found its all maps disappear automatically. I have to send it back to reinstall.
