  • Microsoft S&T's + GPS Locator

      The Microsoft GPS unit is a Pharos unit and it works very well. I agree the software is not good. Go with Iguidance.

        Seems fine to me

        I saw a great deal at Office Max, with the entire package for about $55. So I bought it. I ran it on my laptop and it works great. Even though it doesn't automatically recalculate the route, its a 1 button fix.

        Then I got dissappointed with the non-native support with RoadRunner, but the Brushed Metal Skin helps with it even though not perfect.

        It may be a huge program, but it runs with no glitches on my M10000.

        The GPS reciever itself looks nice (blue light), and gets a lock very quickly. I have never owned another GPS device, so I cannot compare it to anything.

        I do recommend it, even though it is weird.

        btw: the itty bitty buttons are very easy to touch so I haven't had a problem. You might be able to increase its size with the default xp accessability options since it is a microsoft product.
