Summary: Provides good direction with touch screen function. The unit freezes when not fully charged. The backup camera installs easily by attaching the wire to the backup light wiring. Great for checking for any obstruction or danger behind the vehicle as you can see on the GPS screen what is behind the vehicle when backing up. Loose wire connection can make it erratic.
Summary: The Nextar 14-bc was a piece of crap. The camera worked for about 5 days then nothing. The navigation unit will not hold a charge for longer than 1 hour. You must have it plugged in constantly. Save your money and buy something else.
Summary: BOUGHT 2 ON SALE, RETURNED SAME DAY ONE OF THE WORKED BUT DID NOT CONNECT TO THE CAMERA THE OTHER WOULD FREEZE WHILE LOADING...CR^P THIS IS THE BIGGEST POS GPS I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE DO NOT BUY, I REPEAT, DO NOT BUY GET YOURSELF A TOMTOM OR A GARMIN, OR A MAGELLAN DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF &&&T.
Summary: Purchased item but it always freezes and has never worked. The backup camera is great but yiu have to have the unit on all the time and mounted. If you are afraid of vehicle breakins then you have to hide it or take it down.
Summary: The li-ion battery (inbuilt) stopped working and the unit just wouldnt charge the second day. I used it for another day with battery-power cord connected. After that even the power cord wouldnt work and the system would just switch on and go off again. Thats how I blew $200+ Save yours! If you are still tempted to buy this product for its low cost, consider donating the same to your favourite charity!
Summary: I purchase this item last year and only used it 5 times. It was a waste of money. It didn't tell me when I was supposed to make a turn until after I passed the turn. The untit died without having it for a year. The company said it was nothing they could do after 1 year. $400 down the drain.
Summary: The unit works fine, I bought it mainly for the back up camera, which I will not connect until spring, when I will use it to hitch to my camper. The GPS is easy to use and all functions are easy to understand. That being said, the maps are nearly worthless. MANY of my local POI's do not appear, which leads me to wonder how many POI's are missing or incorrect elsewhere. After trying all the different routing options, it never chooses the best roads to travel on.
Summary: I thought that this unit would be a great asset to have, but I have only had bad luck with the unit. After 3 months it will not power up and Nextar will not offer any help except send them the unit plus $79.00 and they will look at it. No promise to fix..... I would not ever buy another unit from Nextar,due to bad GPS, lack of service. Also they will not guarentee that their updates will work on the unit. If you purchase the update at $69.00 it may or may not work.
Summary: I purchased Nextar BC-14 GPS, and it crashed in 6 months. I called Nextar customer service, they told to mail it back on my own expenses (approximately $15.00). I received a new Nextar BC-14 as a replacement GPS. Even the new replacement GPS makes weired noise and crashes once in a while. Battery life is less then 10 minutes. Initial booting takes time, catching the satellite signal is okay.
