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.
Summary: I Purchased this from [...] in November 2008 , Used it till now for Twice or thrice , of my third use its not working Propely , Its not aquiring GPS signal atleast , MP3 is working fine , I will rate this as 1 Star and not recommening this to any other guys.Thx
Summary: Its good GPS but takes 10 minutes to find signal.... Sometimes it takes up to thirty minutes to find a signal..... It really pisses me off..... When it actually finds a signal, it works great......
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.
Summary: i bought this nextar because i travel alot and it always costs me at least an extra $15 a day on GPS rental. so i did my research and found this nextar W-3 GPS on amazon. i bought it and have been using it for about a month now. it's a great Navi system. i recommend it to everyone. dont trust the reviews.
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..
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.
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.
