Alot of the times the place where the button should be making contact with the contacts on the circuit board, don't. I would open the unit up and ensure the ends of the plastic power button aren't broke. ie. you can feel them press in when you press them manually without the plastic button.

Another way to turn your unit off is to press the Repeat button (on top) + Enter + Cancel at the same time.

How do I update my Nextar x3-08 gps so the new roads will show up ?

visit to order your desired maps update and Check the overview description to see which SD card lists your GPS model number and serial number. Order the matching card.

Remove the existing SD card. This is usually found in a thin, rectangular slot on the side of the Nextar GPS.

Insert the SD card with the maps update into the empty SD card slot. Press until it clicks into place.

Reset the unit by pressing the "Reset" or pushing a pin into the "Reset" hole.

Click the "Navigation" button to have the maps automatically update on the GPS.

Need download drive for nextar x3-08

There is not a driver available to download for this gps. You may try a hard reset which involves pressing the reset button located on the back or bottom with the tip of a paperclip for ten seconds. Otherwise the hardware or software may be corrupted and you will either need to return the unit for exchange or repair to the retail location from which you purchased it or contack nextar customer service to see how they can help you.
