SOURCE: map update

You can download Tele Atlas updates at their map store here- http://navigation.teleatlas.com/en/shop/. Since the Nextar is relatively new, there is not a link for that brand on Tele Atlas's site, but for best results try their US customer service. Numbers were a bit hard to find but here are their US numbers- http://www.teleatlas.com/WhyTeleAtlas/ContactUs/TheAmericas/index.htm They should be able to tell you which update will be compatible for you, and its as simple as sending your new maps to your SD card once you download

SOURCE: my nextar x3-08 wont read the sd card

I called Nextar and you have to let its battery drain completely and then plug it in to charge for 5 hours. I guess it a glitch in the system :(

You should first try the reset procedure to see if this resolves the sound problem for you. To do this press the "Reset" button or push the stylus into the "Reset" hole.

For technical support for your Nextar GPS see http://www.nextar.com/frontend/support.asp or you can phone them on 888-849-0846

SOURCE: Are there any map updates for the nextar

Check the Nextar website. They did recenlty release a 2009 map update, but if your GPS is not listed as compatible, it's not going to work.

SOURCE: Nextar m3-04 can't find map updates.

http://www.nextar.com/frontend/proddetail.asp?pn=PART-GPS-MAP09SDC2&co=10000312,10000390,10000345,10000373,10000375,10000331,10000349,10000350,10000352
Try that out. Unfortunately, they also charge for their map updates.

How do I update my Nextar x3-08 gps so the new roads will show up ?


visit Nextar.com to order your desired maps update and Check the overview description to see which SD card lists your GPS model number and serial number. Order the matching card.

Remove the existing SD card. This is usually found in a thin, rectangular slot on the side of the Nextar GPS.

Insert the SD card with the maps update into the empty SD card slot. Press until it clicks into place.

Reset the unit by pressing the "Reset" or pushing a pin into the "Reset" hole.

Click the "Navigation" button to have the maps automatically update on the GPS.

Doesnt go to navigation screen nextar x3-03


If it says it can't find map data then your SD card is corrupted.

It's a fatal flaw in the WindowCE 5.0 operating system that was used for Nextar GPS builds. Basically, if you have a power glitch while it's reading your SD card (contains the maps) then your SD card get's corrupted.

Don't expect any help from Nextar. You will have to get the original data from another person's SD card with the exact same model

GPS CAN NOT FIND MAP DATA FILES


I had a similar problem with a nextar X4-T, which has it's maps on an SD card. If your GPS uses an SD card for it's maps, you can try this:

You will need a computer with an SD slot, and running Windows Xp. I tried the following method on a computer running Windows Vista, and it did not work. I tried again on an older Xp machine, and it worked first time.

  1. Put the SD (Map) card in the computer's SD slot.
  2. Open Windows "explore". (RIGHT click on "Start", then select "explore"
  3. Locate your disk on the file menu.
  4. RIGHT click on the map disk
  5. A menu pops up.
  6. At the bottom of the menu, select "properties"
  7. Another menu pops up, with several tabs along the top.
  8. Select the tab that says "tools".
  9. In the "error-checking" section, select "Check Now"
  10. Another menu pops up.
  11. Select the box that says 'Automatically fix file system errors".
  12. Click "Start"
The program will only take a few seconds to run. If it works, you will see the file directories of the SD card display on the "Explore' screen. You can then put the SD card back in the GPS, and see if it works.

Good luck.
