Pharos EZ Road Pocket GPS Navigator
The Pharos EZ Road Pocket GPS Navigator has been reviewed by cnet. The high points were its compact size, touch screen, ability to play MP3 files, and that included basic PDA functionality. They didn’t like that it uses the slower USB 1.1 port versus a USB 2 port, there was no earbud headset, and maps didn’t come preloaded onto the GPS unit.
Best known for GPS add-on solutions for PDAs, Pharos introduces its EZ Road Pocket Navigator, a full-featured GPS system and MP3 player that can be mounted in your car or carried around in your pocket. On the outside, the unit looks identical to the Mio 136 (both units are housed in the same PDA case), but the EZ Road gets the edge for its mounting hardware and its superior mapping software.
