Disappointed

B. A. Chisholm, Amazon
21 October 2009
  • Summary: Just used the Nextar twice. It wouldn't holde a charge. It went down while we were programming it in less than an hour. When we really needed it on our second trip it quit just as we were exiting the turnpike and froze. The unit wouldn't come back on.

Great Nav System!

Gina A. Marandino, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this for my husband for Christmas and he just loves it! We use it for many purposes and it's been perfect! It notices when we go off course and redirects us, it's great for when my husband goes with "his intuition" on the directions!

B. Storm, Amazon
27 September 2009
  • Summary: Well first of all I ordered this product and it arrived very quickly.. But when I tried to turn it on it would not go past the loading screen, and froze up... I even tried pushing the reset button about a zillion times and it did nothing, so I sent it back and they sent me a new one.

Nextar X3B GPS with bluetooth

T. Hogan, Amazon

  • Summary: I was thrilled when I received this unit, but after testing it for less than 2 hrs, sadly I decided to return it because the POI's are lacking...I was sitting in a store parking lot (surrounded by stores of all types: Best Buy, Target, Old Navy, Weis Mkts, Kohls, etc.

It doesn't work.

J. S. H., Amazon
14 August 2009
  • Summary: I keep using this thing and I'm trying to like it, but it's slow and out of date. It needs a driver to connect to a PC, but I haven't found it yet. So no updates are possible. I have a Magellan that’s a couple of years newer and it works. This Nextar does not.

Beware!

Donkey, Amazon
16 July 2009
  • Summary: The Nextar X3B is actually pretty darn good out of the box. However, it can never be updated and the screen freezes (minor annoyance). The problem is the USB cable doesn't work. After 30 e-mails and pointless phone calls I found out you aren't even supposed to connect it to a computer.

xy.c, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this unit years ago and not use it very often. Recently, this GPS is total died. It can not be turned on with the AC adaptor nor the full charged built in battery. Nothing can do with it and need to get another one.

Laggy and Slow, stick with better brands

Chok L. See, Amazon
21 June 2009
  • Summary: I have used both TomTom and Garmin gps products before, but my mom purchased the Nextar system for 3.5inches to use for a trip. It was a terrible experience The system itself is extremely laggy, and that kills the system.

Unpredictability

Jeffrey Jones, Amazon
6 June 2009
  • Summary: For the first two months of having this GPS unit, I was pleased outside of wishing for a louder volume setting. Many other units I've used have easily been heard over the radio when set at a very reasonable volume level.
