Get more from Microsoft Streets & Trips and Microsoft AutoRoute. With the Pharos PB010 iGPS-500 GPS receiver you can turn your Windows laptop into a portable GPS navigation system. The unit uses a powerful SiRFstarIII chipset that is capable of receiving a signal better than previous models, especially important when you're under heavy cloud cover or are blocked by obstacles.

The receiver is incredibly small, measuring only 1.42x1.34x0.47 inches. Made to work with third-party software like Microsoft Streets & Trips, the device connects to your notebook via the included USB cable that allows you to place it up on your dashboard in clear direct sight of the sky. Or you can use the bundled dongle for connecting directly to a USB port. There are also optional adapters for connecting the device by PC Card slot, Compact Flash slot and Bluetooth. Also, all of the power needed for the receiver is pulled from your notebook, so there’s no need to recharge the iGPS-500 ever.
