Summary: I have 2 of these, one for each car and when necessary to take via air line to use at destination. Hard to find, but one of the best from Nextar. Cannot however find anyone to update maps, and Nextar website is no longer functional. I you have one of these, make a copy of the SD card just in case.
Summary: I bought a NEXTAR gpS IN dECEMBER OF 09. Witin three months the enteral battery died. I contacted Nextar and retuned the GPS. Six weeks later i recieved a reburbished cheaper model. The refurbished GPS canot have the maps upgraded. I would never buy a Nextar product again. One star is one to many.
Summary: HELLLO I WAS WONDERING IF anyone COULD MAKE A COPY OF SD DISC OF MAPS TO A FILE AND SEND IT IN A FILE TO MY EMAIL, I LOST MY CARD WHEN MY FRIEND BORROWED MY NAVI AND WAS IN ACCIDENT HE IS OKAY AND SO IS UNIT BUT WE CaNNOT FIND CARD, I NEVER DID A BACK UP ON MY COMPUTER, nextar DOESNT SELL THIS MODEL anymore IT IS dISCONTINUED and this was gift so i can provide a receipt for warranty replacemet of a refurbished unit.
Summary: This item didn't work properly, and the company said their was a glitch in the software. Instead of replacing it with a new item that works, they said I had to return for a refund and find another one. Well, I did get my refund, but had to get a different brand. So dissapointed with their product and customer service.

Summary: Don't buy anything Nextar! They're a total crock! They, without notice to registered owners, stop having updates for maps when they feel like it. It's one use like having to use an old Rand McNally atlas for the year you bought it forever. They want you to participate in their 'exchange program' and buy a new one! Buy from a more reputable manufacturer - please!
Summary: The GPS is exactly what I wanted, portable, and good size screen, but, it was missing a stylus for ease of use, and it would not turn on. I had to return the product and did not order another. I believe the product was NEW, but wonder if it was a reconditioned product that did recondition very well. I was very disappointed, this was my first Amazon purchase.
