The Nextar S3 doesnot need or come with a map update. That's what it's best feature. It works with the Satellite everytime you turn it on. I've had one since 2008. It is very dependable and reliable. However, I dropped mine last summer and it hasn't worked right since. Now, when I plug it in it says, "the battery is low." I am not aware if it operate by battery. Now that they are gone out of business it is difficult, if not impossible to get it clear information on the S3. So, I just gave up, and recently purchased a Magellan GPS.
I miss it already. I loved the fact that I did not hve to download anything, unless it was music or something that I wanted to download. With the Megallan, and most computers today. You have to charge them, and download updates...tsk tsk...tsk...such a waste of time. I rather plug it into my lighter and go....
There are no further updates for this unit it has been discontinued. As you already have found out. Buy a better known brand of GPS they are likely to stay on the market longer. May I suggest looking at Altina 8010 They are in australia pretty cheap at moment due to the US $ exchange rate. Freight is also reasonable type marbella australia into ytour browser and it will take you to the site.All countries maps are available on request not just australia
unfortunately ... there are none for your system at this time.
