Summary: We have had this GPS for about 2 years now and when we got it, it worked well. Now for the last year the screen still says loading...for over a year now...only thing Nextar will do for you is let you "exchange" it for another one...for $130.
Summary: had this for 2 years, never had a crush, always guided me to destination. not that many POI, but everything else worked excellent. fast re-route, TTS, earphone plug in to keep music playing while navigating: goto music screen, start music turn off navigation, turn it back on, it will go back to...
Summary: I bought this in August 2007 and it worked great for a few months. Then suddenly one day, it did not boot up any more. No matter what I did, it was stuck in the "Loading..." screen. The manufacturer's policy is that any defective unit must be returned to the seller for repair.
Summary: well, it worked for just long enough to get past the warranty period, now it is stuck on the loading screen. This is way too common for this model (do a google search) Just stay away from nextar, many reports of failing nextar products on the web.
Summary: I received this as a gift so I shouldn't be all that upset since I didn't pay for it, but this is a useless piece of garbage. It worked a total of ONE TIME, albeit a long trip from Maine to Cleveland, OH. Now all it does is tell me that I am on Route 2 in Montana (a good 2,000 miles from my home.)
Summary: Amazon sold this clearly used product as new, and when I complained, I was told that If unhappy, I could return it and one of you other fine people would probably receive this item as new when it really wasn't. I'm considering filing complaints against Amazon for this transaction.
ok. GPS given the price, though crashed multiple times.
14 September 2007
Summary: This is my first GPS, and I'm ok. with it, given the price. It crashed two times when driving (both when going to Dallas around Waco. I had to reset it. And once it completely went silent, and I had to do another reset.
Summary: Used it in LA, I'm from Id. Did get very confusing @ times.. told me to merge to the far left of a 5 lane freeway, then told me to exit on the right @ the next exit! Barely made my exit..Another time it guided me to meet friends for Dinner in Burbank fr my motel.
Summary: 1) tip of the 12V power plug is broken when I open the box. Why quality control did not catch it before ship it out? 2) the GPS software freezed up twice during my 3 hours long trip. Each freeze requires multiple hard resets to clear. each hard reset take 3-5 min to complete.
Summary: Works very nicely. Recalculates your route fast if you make a wrong turn etc. I disagree sometimes with the route it takes, but all GPS systems have that fault I am told. I live in a city where there is no grid system at all (Pittsburgh, PA) so this comes in very handy.
