Memory Shortages

 

Great Item for the Money. Works great at finding destinations and getting there in a timely fashion

WON"T SAVE ANYTHING!!!!!!! I can't seem to get it to save destinations or Home address. A real bummer as my wife is not Electronically Literate and I have to keep showing her how to use the blasted device. In short If you can remember where you live....

Excellent little GPS

 

Has about a second of lag time, not sure if other GPS do this.

Price| - for what I paid I laugh at the price of my other friends gps'. I used this little guy to drive from southern IL all the way to Madison WI, and from WI to Iowa. Flawless directions! Many POIs, even found a sweet chinese buffet to eat at after...

Lack of map update support, I looked everywhere on Nextars website for updates and couldn't find ANY

No Signal, Difficult to Use, No Points of Interest

 

I saw a few of my other cousins' GPSs over the winter break and I wanted one really bad, but I wish I had spent about 50 bucks more to get a better one.

I wouldn't call this cheap even. You get what you pay for. This is a piece of junk

Difficult to get a GPS signal. I have to turn it on and off several times to get the screen where it gives me directions from where I am at, otherwise it thinks I'm at home or another location. There are very few Points of Interests and many roads are...

Great Item

 

I bought this as a gift for a relative who has never been good at directions, and entering their senior years is even somewhat less so, now. Once in awhile I get an embarrassed phone call from them because they are lost on the way home from work in the...

First time experience with one of these and its been easy to use and understand. Have had some passenger seat experience with some others and this one stacks up well in comparison, it seems. Clear and bright display, easy to navigate menus, clear voice...

I can't see any. It works well just like other more experienced users of these products have said in their reviews

Been "Testing"

 

Bought another for our parents.

Very good buy. I thought This GPS was going to be an outdated, slow, barely usable device. Fortunately it works like a charm! At least in the Monterey Bay area. The Points of Interest and "Go Home" Feature are used a lot by my less than tech savvy...

I have fat fingers too, but if you pay attention that can be easy to overcome

Nice for the price

 

Basic no nonsense GPS that will get you where you're going with no hassle. For the price I did not expect a lot out of this unit but it does everything I expected and more. One reviewer mentioned that it does not come with a stylus, but it does. The...

A couple pages, Almanac and custom trip logging can only be gotten to using the remote. If the remote is lost or dies you will not be able to access those pages. At least I was not able to find how to view those pages without using the remote ; As was...

Nextar Q3 GPS navigation

 

I bought this unit almost as a lark since it was so inexpensive. I must say that I am very impressed. My experience is with the Garmin and the Q3 measures up nicely. I think it finds the satellites faster than the garmin. It has all the bells and...

I don't really have any cons. For the price I couldn't ask for more
