All-in-One GPS Solution

by on 7/25/2007

After doing a lot of research on Internet, finally I have found a all-in-one GPS solution for my travel needs. With this gadget, I can use my Nokia mobile or Samsung Ultra Mobile PC or IBM ThinkPad laptop as a navigation system. Bluetooth GPS Dock that comes along with the product is extremely useful. Even though I have bought CF Adapter and PCMCIA Adapter for UMPC and laptop, they are not much of a regular use. The main advantage of this device is its ability to make any Bluetooth gadget into a navigation system. Most of the GPS devices that I have seen work only when placed under sky visibility. I have placed this device in my car’s center and it still receives signals very accurately. The only improvement that I could see in this product is in the Bluetooth dock. If the dock has a additional mode which switches the device on automatically when it senses power source that would reduce the hassle of turning it on every time. If I forget to switch it off, it continuously runs on battery and ultimately gets drained out when it is actually required.

great alternate to gps

by EM on 11/27/2007

Bought this Pharos iGPS-500 unit to mimic a GPS with my blackberry. Have loaded both blackberry maps and google maps on my blackberry pearl and use this as my gps receiver. Works great -- set-up was a cinch and blackberry connects via bluetooth without a hitch. No reservations with this unit -- for gps substitution, i'd recommend going with a phone that has a bigger screen than a pearl. regardless the Pharos igps-500 does hot-start almost instantly and i find it receives as well if not better than most brand-name gps units on the market.
