  • Summary: I really like it. You have to download maps and pay for them, but what's new. Everything comes with a price these days.

This is the Pharos 250N -- the N stands for new model

  • Summary: I have an old Pharos 250 GPS unit. The software must be 5 years old now. It is rather useless. The voice mispronounces 75% of the words, and the points of interest restaurants takes you to empty lots where restaurants once were. My new unit, the Pharos 250N now pronounces correctly 90% of the words, has a database that is only two years old, so more of the streets and points of interest are current. The destination entry is still counter intuitive.

  • Summary: I had to download Canada maps (I knew it before purchasing) and it works perfectly. It offers points of interest, shopping malls, intersections, etc.

Great GPS for the money

  • Summary: Quite impressed with the features and functions of a unit for this price. The Navigation seems accurate and reasonable. The only complaints are the unit is difficult to get out of it's mount and if you want to check your speedometer with the GPS speed have to go the the satellite screen which is somewhat buried several layers down. I would buy one again without hesitation, wish they had a motorcyle model.

Pharos Drive GPS 250n

  • Summary: I bought this GPS because I heard you could hack into Th O/S and change it. Well after using it for a while and getting used to it I no longer see any reason to change it. The unit has TTS and works quite well. The only thing my wife has noticed is the cold starts are a little lengthy, but other than that its a fine little unit for the price. PauL R.

  • Summary: simple and easy to use. the touch screen is very handy especially if directions are needed ASAP. the woman's voice could be a little more pleasing to listen too, but other than that there are no complaints.

"Simple to use with an open OS"

invictanewsletter, CNET

  • Pros: You can install multiple GOS programs fairly easily. I have Tom Tom, Destinator, and Mio installed and can choose whichever I want to use for a particular trip depending on the features I need (TTs, elevation, POI's, etc.)
  • Cons: It is a little slower than a Garmin, for instance, but it's a decent performer, certainly for $100 or so.

"I'm very happy so far!"

Pianoman54, CNET

  • Pros: Very easy to use, and many nice navigation functions, without all the extra needless "fluff" that many other companies offer.
  • Cons: I wish the voice was just a tiny bit louder, that's about it!
