Nextar W3-01 is just "ok"

  • Summary: Get a Garmin or TomTom - They don't take as long to boot up and map updates are available. Nextar is not very customer friendly or product supportive.
  • Pros: Easy to use/figure out.
  • Cons: Maps are out of date, takes too long to boot up/get a GPS signal.

Eh - it's "alright"

S. Miklas, Amazon
1 September 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this about three years ago as a replacement for a unit I wanted that was out of stock - and in my opinion, it's just "OK". It takes a very long time to boot up, and the street maps are not up to date and accurate for some areas. I tried to find an update for this model, but I never found one on Nextar's website - I don't think they offer one.

Annoyed

Annie in Vegas "Annie", Amazon
31 May 2009
  • Summary: As an auditor I traveled often to unfamiliar cities and needed a reliable (yet affordable) GPS unit. After less than 5 months the original model froze while I was in the middle of a remote area in Arizona leaving me to buy a printed map from a general store in order to get to my afternoon appointments and then home. The inconvenience cost me two hours of unpaid time trying to navigate around by printed map. Very annoyed.

Never lost..

Maria Rubio "homeschool mom", Amazon
21 October 2008
  • Summary: Its stock voice is pleasant.. Screen image is clear and crisp.. We've used ours driving from Chicago to Missouri, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, and the whole way to Vermont! We were never lost.. One complaint ~ the car adaptor got broken after plugging & unplugging under normal usage.. Would purchase again if I needed to..

So far, first rate

S. R. Schnur "srschnur", Amazon
4 October 2008
  • Summary: This is easy to use. I set it up to take me on major routes to my destination. This will occasionally take you a little out of your way, but probably not a longer time period. It is so much less expensive than most GPS's I worried that it would be hard to use. It has a feature for music that I don't use and can't imagine why I would -- maybe for exercise walking? The screen is easy to see, and the voice directions make it safe to use also.

GPS Lite, less filling but still satisfying

Stephen Cunningham, Amazon
25 September 2008
  • Summary: This unit exceeds my expectations based on the $79 purchase price. I find the menus logical and very easy to use. I haven't bothered to read the instruction book. So far it has taken me to every address that I have put in it and the listing of business, gas stations and restaurants seems very complete given the limitation of only 1.6 million points of interest.
