Pharos Drive 140 Review

PC Mag has posted a review of the Pharos Drive 140 navigation system. In his review, Craig Ellison walks through some of the features that work and don't work on the Pharos GPS. The unit runs on a Windows platform and Ostia navigation engine software. It features a widescreen format, while still maintaining a smallish form factor that is still able to fit in a pocket and go on the road with you. Performance was good, but there are a few stumbles that hurt an overall solid review.

Specifically, you can't search for POI's other than in your current area; i.e. not along your route, and the unit is designed with the maps on the included 2GB card. If you want to load the multimedia unit with more than 50MB of your own content, you'll need to remove the maps. This would of course kill your ability to navigate.

The unit also offers Bluetooth connectivity for handsfree calling.
