I spotted this in the Microsoft Mobile newsletter and thought it was worth passing along because this is a great GPS chipset. I currently have the USB version of the Sirf II receiver from Pharos that came with Microsoft Streets and Trips 2005. These updated GPS units are perfect for Bluetooth enabled mobile phones and laptops.
To quote the website:
"The PT120L is a repackaged Pharos' award-winning PT120 (MSRP $149.95) with the ultra sensitive iGPS-500 receiver, a durable Bluetooth dock, and a high-current car charger. The convertible iGPS-500 receiver allows you to use one GPS receiver for multiple configurations (i.e. CF, PCMCIA, USB cable, and Bluetooth)."
The last sentence is what sold me on the original Streets and Trips 2005 GPS back in 2006. I love the fact that there is a universal connector on those devices so that you can use the unit with various devices without having to buy another GPS receiver.
I'm not affiliated or "sponsored" in any way on this site, so I'm just writing about this because I think it is cool technology and a good product. Of course, if Pharos happens to read this, please feel free to send me a sample to review. My Streets and Trips 2005 unit has seen a lot of use and I'd love to pass it along to someone else in the family.
