Very Old Product

John G., Amazon
22 June 2011
  • Summary: This product has been around for several years. After a few weeks of use, it often takes 10-15 minutes to acquire a signal. Who has time to wait that long before beginning their travel? Tech support is totally non-existent. I tried phoning and emailing tech support about map updates.

  • Summary: It generally works well. But in complicated place, it reacts a little late than expected, i.e., forks of highways around big cities.

A reasonably good product for a very cheap price

  • Summary: I have always used Iguidance+Pharos iGPS360 coupled to my PDA for GPS navigation. The combination although a bit clumsy worked out extremely well for me in last few years. But my PDA crashed recently and I decided that I should look for a simpler alternative.

Very good, but not as easy as some units

Holland C. St John, Amazon
21 July 2009
  • Summary: I've used this daily for 3 weeks now. I previously have only used a bottom line Garmin (I2- Back and white, no touch screen, no text to speech). The Pharos is a step up in many ways (color, faster, spoken street names, larger screen) BUT, Garmin's experience in this field shows: While the Pharos is...

Amazing value, but missing some key features of other systems

B. Solomon, Amazon

  • Summary: I recieved this GPS over the holidays. At the same time my friend recieved a TomTom. While his GPS cost nearly $400, mine had nearly the same features including: a very accurate and extensive point of interst encyclopedia, a 3.5 backlit touchscreen (although his was a little crisper and had more...

Accurate and comes with all these bonus accessories!

Charles Grimes, Amazon
1 July 2009
  • Summary: I switched to the Pharos Drive 150 after a Mio c230 proved to be very inaccurate due to a zip code glitch. Thus far, this unit has been much more accurate and easier to use than the Mio. I decided to try the Pharos because it was highly rated by Amazon's editors and it came with some extras.

  • Summary: It worked great, takes a couple of minutes to find GPS Signal,so I suggest turning it on two to three minutes before you start driving. Besides that it is a great GPS unit.

Not bad for the price

  • Summary: I'd never had a GPS device before, so it was a learning experience. This one is not half bad when you consider the price. I used it to drive from California to Massachussettes and to drive and walk around Boston. My favorite feature is the walking mode.

Great GPS-Worth more than price...

Yogi, Amazon
12 February 2009
  • Summary: I got this from newegg for $[...]. Pros: Starts quick; GPS acquisition is very fast; re-routing is fast; clearly shows next turn by pink/red arrow as well as road name and turn symbol; when turn is ahead, a big turn symbol covers the screen along with voice.
