Summary: I am very happy with my Nextar. Works much better than my Tom Tom . Simple in operation. Programmable speed alert. Quick on detecting GPS signals. Very easy to get location information. Shotrcuts provides quick access to the most important destinations like Gas, Parking, ATM, Hospitals etc. In the shortest Route Option mode navigates to such streets I never would be able to get using my Tom Tom, though I am not a new guy in the area I live. Cons: pretty low volume.
Summary: This thing is great super easy to use and talks loud to hear great price love it!!! The buttons are easy to push everything is placed in a great place best of all works when your in need of the right directions last minute.
Good product it seems but not sure about technical support available?:)

Summary: Hi! It looks like this product has wonderful features, just couldn't find technical support from company for this model. I did not know much about GPS systems when I purchased this product, but checked some websites saw great reviews from people who had it. When I needed to reach the company for some assistance with the product (it wasn't reading the map cartridge), I wasn't able to find technical support from the company anywhere.
Summary: I purchased one of these units several years ago and, as of yet, have not received any updates (as promised in their literature). This has left me scratching my head as new roads are constructed and others are closed. It now takes me about 20 miles out of my way to get to the highway when I can see it from where I am.
Summary: it guided me flawlessly 40 miles of backroads in rural wisconsin, just a tad slow picking up the data in real time, and don't like not having the direction more prominently displayed...but it works well..
Summary: I can never find my way anywhere. I love having a GPS now. I have used mapquest for a few years now. Mapquest worked good. Although sometimes you're already out and can't come back home to get online to find the directions. My GPS is just so much more convenient.
Summary: The GPS was poorly packaged. It was loose in the box. That is probably why it was broken upon reciept. I have to send it to the manufacurer for repair$$$$.***No return policy****, There is nothing I can do about it. Very disappointed!!
