Solid GPS

mohillic "Expert Reviewer", Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this product for years and it has not failed me. The maps are incredibly outdated. It comes with 2006 maps, if you search enough you can find some torrents of 2009 maps but even now they are outdated. Still works well though, and i'll probably continue to use it till my old smartphone replaces it.

Some good and some bad...

Purple Icing, Amazon
5 October 2011
  • Summary: The good: It was hackable, meaning you could turn it into almost anything you wanted. It was a decent GPS for the price. Wasn't the easiest GPS I've ever had to navigate through but it worked. The bad: After only a year, the power button started to break. I tried opening it to see if I could fix it myself but I couldn't figure it out. I tried filing a claim with the company to see if they would fix it but they said it was going to cost $60 for repair.

Directions sometimes come too late.

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

Hardware Failed after about 1 Yr used

Patrick-Los Angeles, Amazon
8 September 2009
  • Summary: The Pharos 150 I have took me to places fine ONLY if it started. And, most of the time on a clear sky, it sitll couldn't find the satelite signals. My friend and my brother who have this units got the same problem. We now tossed them to the corner and bought a better known-name ones. Good luck if you're having a Pharos brand.

A reasonably good product for a very cheap price

S. Kumar "Lambu", Amazon
27 August 2009
  • 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. Which brings me to the point that I needed a GS unit with TTS capability under $100 (a difficult to achieve target). I found PDR 150 at amazon for $54 with free shipping. It seemed like a steal.

Piece of crap, don't bother!

A. Boston, Amazon
25 April 2009
  • Summary: I bought this for my boyfriend for Christmas. He had been asking for a GPS for awhile after using my Garmin Nuvi 360(amazing GPS). I started looking into different brands because of the wide price difference figuring, hey, they all just give you directions, right? I was completely wrong, and I'm so sorry I bought this for him. It makes me feel guilty every time he tries to use it and it doesn't work.

GOOD GPS BUT DON'T BUY !!!

Syed Fahad "sharpdesigner", Amazon
13 April 2009
  • Summary: Well, this is a good GPS. The software is Destinator version 7.0, it's solid performer. However, the manufacturer of this GPS hasn't been looking serious to release any new map releases. I purchased this unit on July 11th, 2008 and I got the maps of 2006 Q2. Till then, I had been asking them many times when will be the new maps be available, but they are just beating about the bush.

Pharoah Leads the People

Michael D. Ciolek "Michael the Vidiot", Amazon
10 March 2009
  • Summary: The Pharos GPS is a great bargain priced device. We are a little disappointed that a "Take Me Home" button is not included. The touchscreen is quite sensitive, but does require the stylus if you are ham-fisted like me. It can't find the local Wal-Mart, but hey, I know where the local Wal-Mart is. Nice package, sturdy mount, intuitive and easy to use. Good value for a first GPS.
