Question about Nextar P3 GPS Navigation System

My nextar p3 freezes up

I have fully charged the unit and it will freeze up each time I try to use it it will go to the main screen and that is as far as it will go. I reset it and it will sometimes go to the next screen but then it freezes up again.I bought it for a gift and need it to be in working condition when I give it, can you help or do I need to return it?

    The Nextar P3 screen freezes while traveling, will work for a few minutes then freeze. If I turn it off or push reset button will work again for a few minutes. Works longer if sitting still but that doesn't help!

Sounds like the sensitivity is whacked...can you hear the type sound. Mine does this sometimes and I solve it by using 2 thumbs and constantly push the settings icon, on each side. It will bring up the x for sensitivity...using the stylus tap gently and then twice to set. Hope this is what you were looking for.

Had a similiar problem. Goto the Setting Menu and choose your correct U.S. time zone along with the time. Then go into the Navigation Menu and choose Setting\Localization to select your Time Zone and Daylight Savings option.

There is a hard reset button under the sticker at the bottom of the unit. It is located directly under the check mark on the sticker. Once you get it going fully charge the unit then go to the Garmin website and register and update your 255w. I will attach the link to the Garmin Site. Thanks for using FixYa

Why does my gps nextar show a red light and not turn on screen is black tryed pushing reset button but nothing happens

Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

The gps freezes and says the unit not charged .

try and reset the gps ..using a paper clip, depress the reset switch for a few seconds.(little pin hole on the side) if that fails, plug it in to a good charger and go to the systems screen then power options and see if the green charging bar is moving. i suspect is not charging which is a very common problem with this and many other models.

GPS stuck up

Since the operating system and navigation software are preloaded into the internal flash memory of the GPS, the freezing may either be software or hardware failure. First, press the "Reset" button or push the stylus into the "Reset" hole, to see if the navigation software can load successfully. If the program still does not load, then the software may be corrupted. Also, if the internal memory fails to read or write and the software cannot load properly, it may be caused by hardware failure. In this case you must return the unit for exchange or repair to the retail location from which you purchased it, or contact Nextar for further assistance.
