Summary: I've tried others this one's just easy to use. Map upgrade is expensive. Happy I don't need an upgrade. I even tried a different model by the same company and it didn't compare to this one. This is my second one of this model. I had a lot of hours on my original and I think it dird of heat stroke.
Summary: This item seems to be better than I expected according to the owneres manual, however I have not used the unit in the car. I will do that tommorow. I bought this product because of the price. I like the product (so far) because it seems to have more features than I expected. I dislike this product because it does not have a QWERTY input. This product seems to have more features than most in this price range.
Summary: I previously was given a Nextar X3-07 as a gift and it was the most accurate GPS i had seen. It was a pleasure to use and when it was stolen from my vehicle I did not hesitate to replace it with another Nextar product. This one is a year newer model and has some slight display and user function changes which are all for the better. Until proven differently Nextar will be the only GPS in my vehicle.
Summary: I first bought an X3-03, and it stopped working after a few months. Every time I made a turn, the GPS will freeze at that spot and had to do a reset every time. So I turn it in and they sent me back an X3-08. Which is pretty nice of them. But it is the exact same thing. Maybe there are more POI or whatever, but who need all those anyway. Then right after the warranty expires, the unit breaks.
Summary: My gps worked ok for the first year, with the occasional putting my location about a block to the left or right of the street I was on, and some out dated maps missing streets. but it was good otherwise till we were in the middle of Wyoming it lost signal completely and said "Acquiring GPS Signal" (still about 2 months later it still says that) I tried to call nextar for help but got transferred to a call center in India,they refused to help because i did not have my...
Biggest complaint is that there are no updates for the maps

Summary: Nextar will give you the run around, but it all comes down to... map updates may come soon, or not. They aren't available now. I am from a very progressive area with new roads coming constantly, but there are roads that are not on my maps for the gps that have been there for years. Today was my biggest upset, the gps told me to follow a highway, but the highway started as a gravel road and ended as a "no name off road" minimum maintenence road...
