Pharos Introduces GPS Pocket PC With Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
Pharos Science & Applications, Inc. introduced the Pharos Traveler GPS 525, the first Pocket GPS to include WiFi, Bluetooth, and Windows Mobile 5.0 software. The device is also among the smallest integrated wireless GPS devices in the industry.

The Pharos Traveler GPS 525 is available now and comes preloaded with the top 50 U.S. metropolitan maps and Skype for Pocket PC.

"Navigation assistance is something every business traveler needs, but current standalone GPS devices are big and bulky, making them unsuitable for briefcases and plane travel. The new Pharos Traveler GPS 525 is the size of a mobile phone and sets up in rental cars in just minutes, offering turn by turn directions with voice prompts that save valuable time while on the road," said Christina Shires, Director of Marketing, Pharos.

The Pharos Traveler GPS 525 also incorporates the highly sensitive SiRFstarIII GPS receiver. This receiver offers rapid time-to-first-fix and high sensitivity.


The Pharos Traveler GPS 525 is powered by a vehicle's cigarette lighter adapter but also has an internal, rechargeable Li-Ion battery that provides approximately four hours of navigation for use in a bus, taxi or while walking in metropolitan areas.

It comes with a 512 MB SD card including preloaded maps of top 50 U.S. Metropolitan areas, Pharos GPS Ostia navigation software, and Skype for Pocket PC. It is based on a SC32442X 300 MHz processor, with 64MB ROM, 128 MB RAM. The display has 240 x 320 pixels (QVGA) resolution.

The Pharos Traveler GPS 525 will have a initial price of US$599.95. .
