Summary: It did take a considerable a mount of time to recieve item, but packaging was good. Looks as promiced. Have only had one opertunity to use it as of this date ( 10-19-12 ) and it got me where I wanted to go.
Summary: I purchased a Nextar Q3 to use primarily as a secondary speedometer in my car, as my car's speedometer is a little iffy, with the navigation function a distant second to that. Here's some things you should know before you purchase this product: AMONG THE BAD: 1. As far as I can tell, there's no "real time, just turned on" navigation mode.
Summary: I bought this GPS for a young girl who was moving out of town to college. It worked for all of 3 freakin days and then went blank. She called a few days later to tell me and I called J&R who was selling the GPS. They said they no longer sold this product and I couldn't send it back and I was just out of luck with them. That was within a month of buying it. Nextar was no help and so this thing is a P.O.S and I really feel taken by this product and these companys.
Summary: This is an old model (as of Spring 2009) and is available quite inexpensively from a number of places. The GPS is pretty basic, with little chance of getting new maps from the iffy support from Nextar. I also found that recalculation of routes was ridiculously, and uselessly, slow. Not a good bet for a car GPS.
Summary: This is a great GPS unit which is very user-friendly. I never knew why I needed a GPS until our recent vacation, in which it saved the trip and found us our destination, which without it, I don't think we would have ever found. I also love the feature that allows you to look up local businesses, restaurants, etc.
Summary: We have the nextar gps system q3. We only used it twice and after that it does not work properly. The screen is white and will not set up. We have had it a year but only used it twice until now. It was a problem from the start. We called the company at least 5 times. They are not helpful at all. This was a complete waste of money.
