defective junk


Do not buy this piece of junk

the first unit did not work out of the box. Newegg gave me a replacement unit that worked for about 2 months and then froze. Nextar will not answer my emails for a RMA. The only POI that you need to be aware of is that this unit is a piece of...

my investment was a total loss

Slow response time to any input. Locks up all of the time. The unit I purchased before this model said it came with free map updates. I have waited a year for one to be available from their website and it is $69.99! This company is horrible to deal...

Nextar GPS


Simple to understand. Inexpensive

Locks off at time. Take a long time to find satellite signal. Have to be charged often. What you pay for is what you get

Money better spent elsewhere


Nextar's technical support people need to go through some customer relations classes. They like to fuss with their customers, instead of empathize.

The specs on the unit look fantastic

This is the 2nd unit I've received from newegg. And the 2nd unit that is faulty straight out of the box. This second unit won't save any settings. The first unit was DOA. So, a unit starting at $60.00 is now costing me $90.00 when I now have to factor...

So far so good


have not tried out the MP3 player... but that is not what i bought it for.. it is a GPS...

screen is very responsive to touch. volume at 1/2 level is loud enough to hear at highway speeds in a working mans vehicle. Fairly quick to remap route to get you back on track when you make a wrong exit....IE in the Mix Master in Dallas

maps are from 2005 and there appears to be NO update for the maps on company website

Other reviews complain about no updates, but, WHO CARES! How many of you know where a new road is? This thing rocks for 60 bucks! Besides, with a multi trillion dollar defecit this country can't afford new roads. Heck, they can't even keep up the ones...

PRICE. DISPLAY. MP3 SD CARD PLAYER. STYLUS ; I got it in yesterday and have not any problems. It looks and works great. Comes with a really nice windshield suction cup mount and a self adhesive mount if you want to put it somewhere else. It takes about...

None so far

evaluate & compare carefully


probably would be a nice lil' unit if there was any support at all. Also read that Nextar will not be marketing anything anymore and will leave only one office active for "support" (..."support? ...what "support"). I love Newegg but I do not like this...

low price

appears to be same discontinued Nextar units I bought last Christmas for two granddaughters - maps were/are outdated, updates and support appears to be nonexistent, and their website locks up even when you try to register - did it in December, March...

Sucks sometimes, but can do the job ”


I don't think this is the best gps, but it does get the job done. There were a lot of times when were really in need of this product to help us get somewhere and the thing wouldn't work! First off, it takes a long time for it to start up. I think this...

Nextar is more accurate than any other I've used. ”


After using GPS devices for years, I finally discovered an affordable, yet ACCURATE and USER-FRIENDLY navigational device.  The Nexstar 4.3 (retails for approx. $299, but on sale for about half the price in 12/09), has the best precision at locating...

With the Nextar-navx3 I don't get lost anymore. ”


I received my Nextar-Navx3 from my husband after we had moved to a new state and I got lost of the second time.  It is easy to program and fun to listen to. The screen is a convenient size making it easy to see. I would not have bought a navigation...
