Pharos Drive GPS 250

Pharos today sought to drive down the prices of GPS units by unveiling two no-frills GPS navigator units. The GPS Drive 150 and 250 provide mapping on their respective 3.5-inch and 4.3-inch touchscreens without some of the features that add to the price but with a few unusual advantages: the larger 250 is capable of running for up to seven hours on a single battery charge versus the three to five of competitors, Pharos notes. Each is based on Microsoft's Windows CE and includes modern GPS features such as a 3D view for a more natural perspective on the route ahead.

Maps are supplied for North America from NAVTEQ and come pre-installed on a 1GB SD card, which permits swapping cards for different trips. Pharos is not specific as to the release date of the GPS Drive line other than to point to coming weeks but says the units are priced at $200 for the 150 and $300 for the widescreen 250, pushing past most low-cost GPS units by about $50 each.
