Question about Nextar X3-03 Car GPS Receiver
My GPS is frozen on the start up Screen. I've pushed the reset button, but all it does is go off, than come back on again. I used my GPS 3 times. I've never droped it, One time it did slide off the dash board onto the floor in front of the driver. It said: "Searching for Satelite, but after if find the Satelite again, it started working. I got to my destination and turned it off. The next time I turned it on, it showed a picture of a power plug, so I thought that I needed to charge it, The Charge bar has not moved in 2 days, and it is not fully charged. (I wonder if it is taking charge) I've unplugged it, and tried turning it off, but the screen is still on the Opening page, (the one with the World and the Satelite pictures and it say GPS Turn by Turn Navigation System) If you could help I'd surely appreciate it. The GPS was a gift for Christmas, and I'm told not to take it back to the Store. I can't call Nextar on the weekends, and I need my GPS by Tuesday of next week which is Feb 3, 2009. If for some reason you cannot help me in this short of time, I will just have to rely on Mapquest.
You are going to have to reload the firmware, which you can do at the Nextar website. I do not believe that you are having a battery issue because you are able to power up, just not getting past the power up/startup stage. The only issue would be trying to figure out which version you originally had. This should be no problem though if you can get the GPS to download the firmware you can update to the newest version once you get it working. After you download the new firmware your GPS should restart itself, but you may have to reset it before start up. Hope this all helps. Just respond if you need further assistance.

Try letting thebattery go totally flat,( leave it swtched on), then recharge and restart it, if that fails try updating your gps via your pc

Is it plugged into anything, like a power supply or computer?
My Garmin GPS does nothing while it is plugged in, and acts like you describe. Once unplugged, it powers up normal, although you must enter the password if enabled.
