Summary: i was planning on long trip (500 mi and above) , when i got direction from mapquest it was a page long with "gazilions" of street/route names and numbers., so i decide to buy budget gps( nothing fancy - because i dot use gps a lot) this particular model came with charger ( in package) , with 0% battery life , so i had to charge it ( not a big deal , just trying to worn other people , who might think their unit is broken) = in 10-15 minutes it got charged to 100% battery...
Summary: There is a 2 minute start up wait. After that everything works well. Was able to find a little shop in N.C. Works better than Google maps. By that I mean it was more precise in turn by turn. I use this thing for local and long trips.. I love this thing.
Summary: You are better off spending more money and buying a GPS of a different brand that will actually last longer and doesn't have built in software problems. I bought one of these and used it for about a month during which it worked fine, until one day it suddenly froze and kept giving me a "fatal application error" message. I had Amazon replace it with a new one.
Summary: The looks of this unit is pretty nice. The volume level (speaking turn by turn directions) are very low at the max level. The map also takes you the long way (example: instead of taking you strait to an Interstate Route it will take you through a residential neighborhood instead of a straight shot). Also, there is no map updates available for this product, so when ordering just hope that it was recently manufactured. Anyway, the images are clearly visible.
Summary: I purchased the Nextar C3 for our recent trip to Florida(3/20/08 - 3/27/08). My Father in law had a Nextar P3. When I saw the bargain price for the C3 I bought that instead. The Nextar worked great for our trip to Florida and is still working great. I Know it's not as fancy as Garmin or Magellan, but for $115 bucks I'm very satified. Just type in the address and off you go.
Works great, but defective power cord and horrible C.S.

Summary: I bought this unit in July of '07. It was my first GPS unit and I was very impressed with it. The screen is bright and easy to read and the voice prompts and speed sensor are nice features. My major gripe with this product relates to the vehicle power cord. The car plug was defective and literally fell apart after only a few uses.
Summary: This GPS unit is well worth the money (about $150.00). For general use on the road the machine works very well. It makes me feel like a local person guiding me though cities and towns with ease. I am directed though small streets to connect to larger routes without the need to even glance at the machine. The "GPS Lady" (as my children refer to the voice) is loud and clear and keeps me in the correct lane as I approach intersections.
Summary: I USE IT FOR WORK EVEYDAY FOR THE PASS THREE MONTHS NOW. IT WORKS REALLY GOOD. I WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE LOOKING OR A GPS UNIT WITH A MP3 PLAYER. IT TAKE ME RIGHT TO THE DOOR I NEED TO BE AT.
