Pharos has once again created a world-class GPS navigation solution for Bluetooth-enabled Pocket PCs and other mobile devices. The Bluetooth™ GPS Navigator includes a GPS receiver with a Bluetooth transceiver for wireless communication with your mobile device without the messy cables. Simply place the GPS receiver on your dashboard and receive accurate GPS data on your Bluetooth-enabled device to help you navigate to your destination. The high capacity lithium polymer battery will power the Bluetooth receiver for up to 14 hours between charges. A blue LED indicator flashes when searching for a Bluetooth connection and glows solid when a connection is established. Use any NMEA compatible software, or for the best navigation experience, use Pharos’ Ostia navigation and routing software to navigate to your destination with detailed street level maps and turn-by-turn, voice prompted directions.
