Summary: I'm very happy with this item......or I guess I should say, I was. It's a great Product at a good price. But, just now getting around to reviewing past purchases from way back and I would still be using this but for getting an iPad some time back so I'm now using an "App" called Waze.........
Pharos 140 The worst GPS I have ever use, dont waste your money!
7 July 2010
Summary: Pharos 140 is the worst GPS i have ever used. It is even dangerous since you need to do multiple stops to reset, does not give you detailed and precise instructions,it is hard to use, not friendly at all. The voice prompts are insuficient are imprecise.
Summary: I purchased one of these "fabulous" units while traveling in Texas two years ago. I purchased it at a discount at a local "going out of business" CompUSA. After a couple weeks of trying to make this horrible excuse for a GPS unit work like it should, I gave up and tossed it on the floor of my truck...

Summary: After opening the box, it was ready to use with nice 2gb card full of maps and POIs. only 50mb space left in card for your MP3, Pictures and videos. Well, smart me, bought 4gb sd card for it. Now I am ready loaded with my MP3s, photos and what not, to use 4gb card. Lets see what happen: 1.
Summary: Dis so horrible! So BAD! umph! Bloody thing sickens me! I damn near threw up because of this ruddy object. 1) The Bluetooth feature is very appealing, being a homeless man on the road. Too bad the Bluetooth doesn't work at all, and now my phone won't turn on! Umph! Thanks, Pharos!
Summary: My Drive 140 came without the 2 Gb SD chip in the box. Customer support would not send me one. I had to supply my own SD chip and am now in the process of downloading maps from Pharos website - three per day limit!
Summary: This $320 to $360 product does not perform as advertised. For E.g., it can not find a main street that even a cheap GPS finds! It is hard to work with as well. Hope somebody likes it, but not me. --FredB
Summary: Wow, I can't believe the negativity. I got one a couple a months ago as an upgrade to a competitor's brand that I had used for many years. I love the blue tooth. I can make a call either from my contact's list or from the device itself.
Summary: I had one for two weeks. 1st It kept saying my home address was at the nearest corner. 2nd It would say you arrived at your destination way to early or way to late. Took you to the neareast street corner. 3rd Every time I tried to get help it was always closed.
