    I charged my newly bought NEXTAR GPS for 3 hrs first as described in manual. Then turned it "ON" for the first time. It shows "loading" for over 3 hrs now. Until died down. Then I charged again and restart. Thesame message "loading" for hours.

    I have the same problem, it worked fine for a good 9-10 months or so, then in St Louis I turned it on, and it locked up.

    let the battery die a few times, sometimes dead for a week or more, and when it's plugged in, it still is locked up at the exact same place. Made the drive home annoying not to have it...

    any other ideas?

Do a hard reboot, take batt out for more than 15 min. Or let system die out power. Then start over.

GPS locked up.

My problem has been remedied. I took the product back to the store and got my money back. I am sorry I had to do this but your tech support stinks. I did not think that I should have to pay for tech support on a product that was still under warranty. I did not purchase another Nextar due to the tech support. I will purchase another GPS system from another supplier.

Did you try the switch on the back of the GPS? Turn off on the front, turn the switch on the back off, then on. This has worked for me numerous times.
