Pharos Launches Traveler GPS 505 Pocket PC
Pharos Science & Applications, Inc. has announced an all-in-one portable GPS solution based on the Windows Mobile Pocket PC platform. The Pharos Traveler GPS 505 is a compact, lightweight device with a 3.5" color display (320x240 pixels).

The new GPS 505 is based on an Intel Bulverde PXA270 processor running at 416MHz, and comes with 64MB ROM and 64MB SDRAM. Memory can be expanded through a SD Slot with SDIO Now! support.

The software provided gives voice guidance with turn-by-turn directions. The Pharos Traveler also includes a Traffic Message Channel (TMC) driver for future usages of real-time traffic and other location-based information.

The Pocket Outlook synchronization feature saves users time by allowing them to quickly download their addresses to their device versus entering one at a time. Plus, the device speaks while presenting your route on a large, color, touch-screen display.

Users can program destinations by intersection, favorites or from a large Points-of-Interest library (POIs include public, government and commercial venues ranging from hotels, gas stations and restaurants to ATMs, hospitals, airports, and more). Powered by a vehicle's cigarette lighter adapter, the Pharos Traveler also has an internal, rechargeable Li-Ion battery that can provide approximately four hours of navigation for pedestrian use.

The GPS 505 Pocket PC comes with a 512MB SD card including preloaded maps of top 50 U.S. Metropolitan areas, and it is based on a highly sensitive SiRFstarIII GPS receiver.

The company did not inform what OS version the new GPS 505 is running.
