Excellent for the price

bigdaddysimpkins, Ebay
10 August 2008
  • 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.

Has software issues

  • 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...

Great GPS unit from an off-brand manufacturer

Cousin Vinny, Amazon
16 December 2007
  • Summary: previous reviewers have said most of what I would say about this, so I'll limit this to only what hasn't been said. I upgraded from a Garmin i5, and I am very glad that I did.

  • Summary: The Nextar C3 works as good as I expected for the price I paid ($149). I will recommend it. I had it for 3 months got to move from Tennessee to upstate New York. The directions were right all the way up and I been using it to get around in my new state and no problems so far.

  • Summary: I bought 2 nextar C3 GPS units. One for me and one for my daughter. Hers works fine. Mine worked well in the house except that it said my home here in the florida highlands was 37 feet below sea level. My home is actually 81 feet above sea level. I took it to my garage to check it out in the car.

  • Summary: This has become my favorite new gadget. I have no doubt that a pricier GPS would have more and better features, but this one had the best price when I was searching, and does the job.

Very good product

  • Summary: After using this GPS for a recent trip out west I am glad I purchased it. For me the Nextar GPS paid for itself. When it came time to find a hotel for the night all I did was look under the hotel listings and call to find out what their prices were.

How can they expect you to wait 4 months for replacement part?

R. Heilbrunn, Amazon

  • Summary: Purchased in August, this unit came with a defective car adapter cord. In other words, you are fine until the rechargeable battery gives out-- you will have directions for the first 2 hours of your trip only !!

Cheap - needs work

Troy in Austin, Amazon
28 October 2007
  • Summary: PROS: * Cheap! * Destination calculations fast. * Good maps (but questionable "best-path" calculations) CONS: * Street name labels only appear at a zoom level that is too zoomed in. (This to me is unacceptable because the resolution is clearly available to draw the names).

28 October 2007
  • Summary: I've onwned this unit for a while now and amazes me how well it works. It even has options that my $500.00 Garmin 2720 does not have. It is so easy to use there is no need to read the instructions. Will pickup a good satellite signal inside my house!
