Hi.
You are facing this problem because of the US GPS Satellite because there's a sudden change with the code signal which leads to GPS signal anomalies.
Even though you've traded it. the problem is still there.
It's better to go with another brand or model.
As this problem cannot be fixed with this unit.

Nextar GPS Never acquires GPS Signal


The only thing you can try is the external antenna for this unit.

You could be in an area that has poor signal.

If it where me, I would go to a place that I could return a unit,
I only use garmin, there hand-held unit's are the top rated for
the frequency of getting satellites.

So say you have a walmart, see if you can return a unit, buy a garmin
and see if it get better reception, and if it doesn't then its not the unit.

If it does,sell you old one on ebay.

Nextar GPS will not get past loading stage


Nextar will not assist in helping "fix" anything. Their solution is for you to send in the unit and they pitch it, send you one off the assembly line. I was able to get this unit working again in just GPS mode (what it was intended for), so using this workaround, you will lose the ability to use it as a tiny digital photo frame, MP3 player, etc.
I take no responsibility if you try this and "brick" your unit (render it unusable except as a $100 paper weight). BACK UP!!

1) Download and install ActiveSync from the Micro$oft website.

2) Connect the M3-04 unit to your computer

3) Turn it on

4) Red bar should fill and the M3-04 will "hang" in that screen, BUT viola it still connects to ActiveSync

5) Using Explorer from ActiveSync, navigate to ResidentFlash

6) Copy autorun.inf to your PC Desktop, make backup by renaming it to autorun.bak

7) Open autorun.bak with Notepad

8) Change the line to read without the quotes: "\ResidentFlash\Netropa Intellinav\IntelliNav.exe"

9) Save As to your desktop autorun.inf

10) Copy back to your ResidentFlash directory on the M3-04

11) Disconnect from PC and hit the reset button on back....BOOYA! Your GPS is functioning again.
