    I agree I have been trying to get my Nextar model HGPS35 updated for two months. I have called Nextar and get the same story no updates at this time. My question is this why can Garman and the others have updates and Nextar cannot. Also when I purchased my model in December 2006 from HSN one day special I was informed in the near future I would be able to update my GPS online. My manual states the same thing. Guess what it is almost two years and still no update. Please do not buy Nextar it appears they could care less and are not intrested in repeat business. I went to several retailers who sell Nextar and asked them if they had any update maps for my unit. I was informed no and they were unaware of this problem. My brother purchased a Garman model and he just updated his GPS. I really like my GPS and all I am asking for is to update my maps. It has been two years please Nextar wake up and take care of your customers!

    I am online now, much like you all it appears have been, trying to find updates for my Nextar and having no luck as well. My wife does home health and received this unit for Christmas. She was very excited and thougth it would be great time saving tool for her. She has been very disappointed thus far and is really hoping an update will post soon. I would not recommend this product to a friend (or an enemy as far as that is concerned).

Here is a proposed solution. We nextar owners who purchased this, not just for the low price, but for the many selling points. one of which is the ability to "update very soon". This constitutes a deceptive sales practice. Thereby, it is a fraud. This is illegal.

That leaves us consumers with one option. That option is to File a lawsuit against Nextar and their licenced retailers.

We need to band together, organize as a consumer group and either force nextar to comply, or we sue for the cost of a new unit from another company, plus punitive damages.

We as consumers can not continue to accept abuse like this from large corporations.

My solution to solving this problem is to buy a name brand unit which I plan to do shortly. Have already suffered enough frustration and will have to chalk it up to a bad experience. Too many bad reviews on Nextar units! This company does not give reliable support.

Unfortunaetly nextar has been doing a VERY bad job making updates for any of there GPS models. As such, there are NO updates released for this model and judging by what other consumers say, it looks like there might not be any in the near future. as for the manual it has nothing on how to update it.
sorry about this, but if it becomes a real problem you might want to consider getting a gps from a different company.

i personally recommend newegg.com youll get TONS of customer reviews and some pretty low prices.

Nextar Now offers update for a price. $59.00 for one time and $79.00 for a 1 year subscription. My problem is I have had my unit (a Q-4) for a year and the maps were so outdated when I bought it, I went and bought a different brand because the nextar was useless for me in a lot of the areas I travel.

Can you change a GPS navigation system from street name to postcode


I am not sure what you mean by " post code" but a gps uses maps that are stored on the unit itself. In order to make a change on how it shows locations, it would mean that the maps would have to be edited. Any change like you are suggesting would involve a lot of work with computer programming. Since it is not a standard method of locating, it would not be marketed.

Missing bluetooth software


The 300 does NOT have bluetooth. See this Garmin link:

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=339

The 360 has bluetooth. In order to have bluetooth, you must have the main board inside that has the bluetooth circuitry AND the firmware to support it. The 300 does NOT have the circuitry for bluetooth.
