Update map x3-08 nextar

I purchased a nextar x3-08 for automobile and the map needs updating. I have a nextar x3-08 and a couple roads i've been through - which are over 5 years old - are not shown and makes my gps say that i'm off road... luckily i know the area but what if this happens when i'm on the road where i don't know the area?!?!? WE NEED UPDATES... i guess that's what i get for buying this thing on black friday

    No need to be rude. I would have helped you out if you had actually commented on my solution to make me aware of this. But since you seem to be a spoiled little ****-brained child, let me show you what it took me all of 5 seconds to do on Google. Search for "nextar website down" and click the fourth link (the one for Yahoo Answers), and you'll get your answer.
    I hope you learn some gratitude soon.

    Unfortunately, Nextar is no more; they merged with TomTom. At this time, TomTom appears to have no download or purchase links to update Nextar units at all. The only thing to do is contact them and request it, or ask if it is still possible to purchase it and have them send a link to a personalized download via e-mail. Good luck to anyone else who finds this solution; TomTom is more likely to try to get you to buy a new unit.

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

visit 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.

How to update map to new roads.

The only way to do this is through an update.

Nextar does have a 2009 SD card with new maps on it. Go to their website, look in the lower right hand corner, and there is a link to the new maps update.

It has a list of compatible devices. If yours is on the list, then that's it!

I need a Map upgrade for my nextar C3 gps Where Can I get it ?

You can contact Nextar at to see if there is an update available ... but they haven't distributed any updated maps for a couple years from Navteq (who provides the maps to Nextar).

L am looking for map updates for nextar gps

Unfortunately Nextar GPS systems come with only USA/Canada or UKmaps , maps for other regions are not available, and there are also not much upgrade.
Maps from third party usually do not work on this unit.
The only way to know if a download is available is simply calling them at their toll free numbers, they do not make available online downloads:

Technical Support

Technical Support (For U.K. Only)

The good thing is that upgrades and map are both free, while on other models you have to pay for maps.

Give them a call to unlock a download to latest map.
