I actually had the exact same problem...

And after searching google and ask for 2 hours to no avail I noticed SEVERAL other people owning this GPS wanted to get some new map updates


Well after having done a little research on the nextar website and to my surprise they actually had a contact phone number where someone answered on the second ring....

She then placed me on hold for about 30 seconds then came back saying that several people have called and asked for the same thing so Nextar is in the process of making them right now...


They explained to me that map upgrades will be available by end of this summer :D


Nextar fans may rejoice as our long awaited map updates finally have some light shined down upon them :)

Nextar did not implement map update feature yet. Q4 manual will not tell you how to put the unit in USB mode to upgrade map from NAVTEQ dvd if you bought one. If you still want to do it yourself - copy first your original 2GB SD card to new one, 4 or 8GB, to play with update on new card. You may have to ask tech support how to get USB mode to replace your randomly 'failing' SD card w/o special SD card reader.

Nexstar Exchange Program. If you bought your Q4-01 from a major dealer like Best Buy, take it back and ask for a promotion code and their agent code. If you are successful in getting those two items or even if you can't, go to www.nexstar.com and click on their support link. Select the "Exchange Program" link and look for online processing. If you don't have a promo code, it will cost you $80, but you can get a new model with more features and the ability to update the maps. The promo code will save you some money, how much depends on unknown factors.

To update the existing map for your Nextar product, please contact Nextar to find out if any new map information has become available. The products are usually pre-loaded with USA/Canada maps, depending on the model.
OR
Go to Nextar.com and select your model.

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.
