Contact Nextar personally and request that free upgrades be made available. This is my review I tried to post on Buy.com.
After working with high end GPS units for six years, using the Nextar X4-T was my first exposure to a consumer grade product. While this unit is very easy to use out of the box, the accuracy of the vector data and the quality of its supporting database leaves much to be desired. Some of the data on this unit, particularly around my home, is at least five years old. You would need a bulldozer to reach my house following its instructions. In addition, the current 911 rural street address for my home does not exist in this unit and I've been at this location for 10 years. If an emergency responder was depending on this data to reach a location to provide life saving assistance, where every minute counts, I afraid it could cost someone their life. I realize that creating this type of data is time consuming and costly, but I also know that better data exists and is available. Unfortunately, after contacting Nextar and requesting updated data, I was informed that it was not available. Nextar purchases their data from Navteq just like Garmin which has 2008 and 2009 data available. I believe Nextar should provide the most current data available to their customers at no charge and that Buy.com should require that they do so or quit marketing their products. email@example.com

Their is no solution to registering a new nextar gps. I have been trying to register since last june 2008 and it is impossible on line. You cannot return them as you cannot get the shipping # to put on the packaging. The Answer? Throw it away and go buy one that you get service with. Alpin Barteaux Nova Scotia

You should probably just buy a Garmin.
If you did want to update the maps you need to find the software company that makes the map (usually IntelliNav or Odyssey) and then buy it from them and PRAY it works by loading the new map data directly on your SD card.
From experience, this makes your GPS crash a lot and make sure you back up your SD card before you even attempt this.

You go to the Nextar web site, and usually you have to register, then you connect up your GPS, to the PC via USB cable, run the software and then you will be able to download anything you wish from their web site onto your GPS.

Try that out. Unfortunately, they also charge for their map updates.
