    I'm having the same problem, but the reset button and plugging into the outlet did not work for me. Anyone else have any ideas?

    I have the same problem, sent my first nextar gps x3b back 9 days ago(1 day after receiving it), after trying for 8 hours to get it past loading screen. Even tried letting batterry die and everything. Just got sent another one and the same problem all over again, this is nuts!! Called nextar and they said to bring it back to the store, lol!!! It cost me $17.00 to ship it back the first time...

    I too can not get past the load screen. Returned the 1st unit to Circuit City. Ordered a new one on line, and the same thing happened again. The reset does nothing, it goes right back to the frozen loading screen.

    bought 1 unit online, it use to freeze on loading screen. Returned it to Circuit City, they sent me another one in exchange. Exactly same problem with second unit too. REally pissed off with this model, service, company and retailer.

    Same as others. The thing freezes on the "Loading..." screen and nothing can fix it--reset causes the screen to go black but when it's released you get the exact same frozen screen back. Power switch appears to do nothing. Give the number of postings here, this is a lemon.

    Same problem. The loading screen comes up with the progress bar stuck at around 15%. I've tried resetting it, letting the battery die, then resetting it while plugging it in, but nothing seems to work. I've contacted Nextar for help.

Need to load south african maps for nextar gps

Nextar uses NAVTEQ maps, You need to register your device for support, here

Though I suspect they will not have the maps you want.

Nextar mn2707 firmware update

I had this problem too with the one I got from my sister. If you tap your finger in the lower right of the touch screen mine came back on. I think it resets the screen with commands that come back into the screen area. Try that and let me know. Dale.

I found this on Nextar support site. These units **** lots of problems being reported by many users.

Q: It (GPS) freezes on the "loading" screen. Why?
A: Since the operating system and navigation software are preloaded into the internal flash memory of the GPS, the freezing may either be software or hardware failure. First, press the "Reset" button or push the stylus into the "Reset" hole, to see if the navigation software can load successfully. If the program still does not load, then the software may be corrupted. Also, if the internal memory fails to read or write and the software cannot load properly, it may be caused by hardware failure. In either case, please return the unit for exchange or repair to the retail location from which you purchased it, or contact us for further assistance.
