Summary: I keep using this thing and I'm trying to like it, but it's slow and out of date.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.
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.
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! :-) The display and sound quality is clear and precise, I highly recommend it!
Summary: This is the first time I am writing a review on Amazon, as I don't see any reviews written. I was pleasantly surprised with this small machine. I have had this for about a month. Used all its features. Text To Speech is very useful to have. I got it for 180$ for a brand new unit, which I think is a good deal. Navigates well. Shows relevant POI's. Used it in 3 states (OH, NH and VT). Worked great! Pros: Works great, recalculates directions well. Bluetooth works well.
Nextar is an ok gps unit with good customer service but
30 September 2009
Summary: i like the features of this unit like bluetooth but i disliked that when it was opened up in the new box never used it did not ever work and it was frozen on the screen and called nextar who has nice customer service people that answer the phone and they understand you when you talk with them they said that this is an issue they have. i have had a few other nextar gps units though and they are mostly fine but one other of the many i have had had a similar issue.
Summary: I have had a problem where the unit freezes on the "Loading..." screen and there is nothing you can do about it. Reset does nothing. Power switch does nothing. I searched the Internet and MANY people have had this exact problem and Nextar's support is either horrible or shut down. Some have gone through several returns and replacements only to experience the same thing. Beware. Do not buy this product. You will likely regret it.
Summary: It is nice and slim,but it's hard for me to use because I have big fingers.It would work fine with pen.This unit has way more functions than I need.I am not a electronic geek so I need something easy with less functions.
Summary: Almost everyone who rated this product below a four complained about frozen screens, which seems about right. The company had issues with freezing in the earlier models, but I have two and neither one has frozen once in the months that I have owned them. I've driven in MA. FLA. RI. NH. ME. NY. NJ. CA. OR. and TX. and have not had one frozen screen.
