Question about Nextar Q3 GPS Receiver
There are maps available for upgrade
The cost of maps is nothing to do with nextar, they use Navteq maps and they are made for nextar by a 3rd party. the cost of maps and upgrades are determined by the difficulty in coding to a particular operating environment and format of a brand of GPS . Specific functions expected or supported in a brand.
$60 is cheap compared to Garmin at $180 a year. Polstar $110.00. There is a lot of work to maintain maps for accuracy and many contributors that have to be paid. Yes a UBD mapbook can be bought for $20 but can it guide you turn by turn, and especially in the dark and get you to yor destinatoin without numerous stops to recheck the map? No! so don't complain too much about cost of upgrades as yours appear quite cheap.
In some cases buying a new GPS every year with new maps is cheaper than updating older maps. I trade mine in on Ebay every year and that way keep up to date.

Hey, my data file for this exact model corrupted and Nextar has been less that helpful. Are you tech savvy? Is there ANY way you could either connect the nextar to your PC or pop the SD card into a port if you have it and zip all the data off the card? We could send it over Skype or something similar.
I have exhausted every solution, I even went to the Nextar office! (Live local to it) I know a lot of us have the problem and I was wondering if there was any way you could help. Old data is better than no data.
Shoot me an e-mail at (modified to stop trollers) mikepetrini (at) gmail.com
Thanks and hope to hear from so
