Summary: I purchased this GPS thinking that it was a portable battery powered GPS. I came to find out it needs to be plugged into a power source at all times. I just thought that for how much it costs it wouldn't have to be plugged in all the time. This is a lame product.
Summary: Wow, what a deal. I had one of those small GPS' without touch screan and I was always frustrated with it. this thing is great. PRO's: - Large 7" touch screan (makes programing a breaze) - Voice promt directions - Points of interest - MP3 player = actually sounds good - Hard drive based (lots of storage for MP3's) - Fast processor - Unix Based (Hackable?
Summary: DO NOT buy either of the Nextar units. I originally bought the 2707 at Canadian Tire. Great price, huge screen etc. The unit takes forever to lock up and that voice is more annoying than my ex-wife. The routes it displays are ridiculous. It has you exit a highway and driving through towns, when you could go a few more exits down the road and get to your destination faster with out all the stop and go driving. Secondly, my unit locked up and died after only 2 months use.
Summary: I bought the Nextar P7. but aside from its large screen it had so many serious drawbacks, I returned it and got a Plenio VXA-3000 which also has a 7" display but is far superior in just about every way! Some of the P7's problems: It takes about a minute to start up. It takes another minute or so to lock into a 3D signal. In contrast, the Plenio starts in under 10 seconds, and is locked into a 3D signal in about another 10 seconds.
