Summary: the color went out and it doesn't hold destination without going to demo mode. Very dissatisfied. tried to return it after 75 days to manufacturer who is bankrupt and out of business and it was returned.... so much for a 1 year warranty. Tom tom would not do anything either. Stop selling this product... it is junk!!!!!
Summary: I liked the Nextar I received as a gift so much I bought my sister one for her new car. It was easy to use. It would show photos and play MP3's. Early this year (2012), when I tried to update my maps, I found they'd went out of business. If you buy one now, it'll steer you wrong on new or upgraded roads. If they were still in business, I'd give them 5 stars.
Summary: The product looked great when I got it from Donkey Jungle but the mount would not stand up in fact I couldn't raise it to a horizontal position to attach the GPS. I called the co. They didn't even listen to my complaint I give the service a 1star very disappointed in the Donkey Jungle.
Summary: AFTER TURNING MY NEXTAR ON ALL I SAW WAS NAVIGATION, MUSIC, CHARGE, AND PHOTOS. HITTING NAVIGATION BROUGHT UP A SIGN THAT TOLD ME TO INSERT SD CARD, RESTART, ETC. NOTHING I TRIED EVER WORKED. I TRIED AT LEAST 30 TIMES AND STILL NEVER GOT PAST THE FIRST SPOT.I TRIED CALLING NEXTAR CUSTOMER SERVICE PHONE AND IT WAS NO LONGER WORKING. CAN ANYONE HELP ME TO GET MY NEXTAR TO WORK OR A GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE PHONE NUMBER?
Summary: We paid $200 for this. VERY disappointed. More than half of the time it is telling us need to update map and it can not tell us where to go (roads change/construction/etc..). I can't find ANYWHERE a website for <...> for GPS! I found one for Telescopes, but not GPS! We are very upset about this. NO WAY to update our GPS. HUGE WASTE OF MONEY. SOME FORUMS SUGGEST A CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT AGAINST THEM FOR IT IS FALSE ADVERTISING (SAYS YOU CAN UPDATE). DON'T BUY!!!
Summary: Nextar has a "feature" I've never found documented but you should be aware. The maps expire!!!! Sure, everyone knows that maps get out of date and don't match the actual roads. However, Nextar has an actual map expiration which disables all GPS functions. If you hit this expiration, and there's no warning beforehand, then the unit gives a short message that the map is expired and the unit will shut down.
Summary: I got the nextar Q4 for christmas 2009. what caught my attention was that i could use it as a touch screen mp3. Within 6 months the navigation system would not work. The music button and the photo button still work but when i go to press the navigator button nothing would happen. buy a tomtom or garmin!
