Save your money! Even the bargain price was TO MUCH! :-(

Summary: I bought this because my current GPS stopped working after 5 years...I like that it works I dislike the software and system and setup....the options are inferior to other GPS's, it is a cheap GPS system and functions like a cheap GPS would function. I am not thrilled with this purchase and will more than likely buy a different unit and brand all together.
Summary: Great value, my first GPS. Has all the roads in our rural area. Haven't figured out 3D mode yet. Bought my wife a 5". Think it may be an older model as mine booted up to 2008 or so. Uses a Windows version, not sure what other GPS's use. Inconvenient cord location.
Good GPS, just need to use it to really use the options!

Summary: I like my Nextar GPS unit,its easy to use and fairly accurate. When i bought this unit, I already had a Garmin and of the 2 i like the Garmin! But it could be because I'm used to it. This Nextar unit is fine and would make someone a nice unit,just get used to it in farmilar areas first! Then when you have Mastered all the options, go exploreing!!!
Summary: Hard to use. Not recommend.The keyboard is in alphabet.To see the whole plan map have to zoom out. Doesn't say speed limit. Confusing display. Die fast batteries. To find point of interested have to choose catalog, doesn't find by business name. Annoying piece of device.
Summary: I was quite disappointed with the way this gps turned out after using it for couple of days. 1. Battery is erratic - % charge which is shown as a number just keeps changing all the time and battery doesnt retain charge for more than 10 mins 2. Doesnt have a plug charger - you need to charge it only when you are driving 3. Search is not intuitive - You cant search by zip code, or keyword such as "italian" so many basic stuff missing...
fair product, would be great if you can update the unit

Summary: can not upgrade maps on unit, most new roads are not displayed on unit, easy to use as long as you are traveling on roads that are older and not new.dont know why you would make a unit that can not be updated, have to but y a new unit. i also have a tom tom and it can be updated to newer roads and places of interest, all in all if it was not for that one problem it6 would be a alright item,
