Question about Nextar Q3 GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Nextar Sucks! They are rip off company and sell you a product that from the beginning is not updated on maps. That's like going to dr. to get heart surgery and he never went to med school. Then they rip you of 60 bucks which is usually 60 percent of a new ones price to buy their upgrade. I'm reporting to FCC and BBB and hope you all do to.

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

How do you update nextar x4-t if the this model is not on the list to choose from to be updated?


Well, that is going to be near impossible.

You can TRY, with no guarantee, to find out what map company makes the maps for your Nextar. It's either IntelliNab or Odyssey.

Then you would have to load new map data direct from those map companies onto your SD card and pray it works.

From experience it usually ends up crashing the GPS. If Nextar doesn't offer an update, then you're probably out of luck.
