I just opened up a Nextar 14-BCT GPS unit and found the inner side of the ribbon cable is cracked. This unit has the exact same freeze on load screen as you do, so try looking inside, you may need the LCD ribbon cable or both LCD and LCD ribbon cable for your unit to function normally again.

Need SD card for: Nextar auto Nav. (GPS) with back up system. Item # 14-BCT


You can find SD cards for a number of different retailers. I have used Amazon before, you can also do a Google search to find probably 30 different vendors that have these cards. Average price is about 50 cents US per Gigabyte of size.

My nextar 14-bct was not on for a long time then I charged battery a short time then when I was playing with it in house it went blank and now will not turn on


I have a nextar 14-bc and I was having similar problem and I found that the power in jack had a broken solder joint and when I thought it was charging it was not. I would not turn on until I discovered the broken solder joint inside on the power jack. I resoldered it and after it charged up it was up and working again. You might check on that.

Frozen Screen


Mine does this from time to time. I pull the SD map card, power it off, and hit the reset button while the unit is unplugged. These units are notorious for this. But then again, they're inexpensive. No receipt ... well, you're pretty much stuck with it. No receipt, no return or repair.

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.
