These are just the common errors in the programmed maps stored inside the unit, I have had a GPS for years and have had this happen many times to my suregrin, sent down dirt roads, routed around in circles and so on.

How do I update my Nextar x3-08 gps so the new roads will show up ?


visit Nextar.com to order your desired maps update and Check the overview description to see which SD card lists your GPS model number and serial number. Order the matching card.

Remove the existing SD card. This is usually found in a thin, rectangular slot on the side of the Nextar GPS.

Insert the SD card with the maps update into the empty SD card slot. Press until it clicks into place.

Reset the unit by pressing the "Reset" or pushing a pin into the "Reset" hole.

Click the "Navigation" button to have the maps automatically update on the GPS.

have you tried to find out where on that same road it always goes off? could either be a new hidden camera or some other device recently installed utilising the same frequency as ka transmitting in that area. had same prob with my v1 always goes off in one part of the country road. even got out of car to investigate but found nothing that appears obvious.

My Nextar GPS will not let me get step by step directions. A fatal application error comes up on the screen. When you read whats on the screen it says performed an illegal operation and will be shut down....


There are two things to try.

First try a unit reset. The process for doing a reset should be in the user manual near the back under trouble shooting. A reset will force it to reload the software. If it has become corrupted this will clear it on some units.

Next go to Nextar and look for a update or system patch. These are not the maps but the operating system patches. Usually these replace all the files and routines and fix things like your error. However the patches are not always available until well after a problem shows up. You should also contact Nextar support and see if they can help with either the patch/update or if you need help doing a hard reset.

If it is under warranty you can just send it in or exchange it. You may need to check with where you purchased or Nextar to find out if you are covered.If it is out of warrenty be careful as repairs can cost more than a new unit.

Dear sir! First of all when water servicing any appliances,ask service man to check all loose wiring after service and also blow dry air near electrical ends to remove moisture or water drops.
And also replace compressor contactor (Not relay) as it's struck. That is one of the reasons to get breaker tripped. Helpful?

I have a GPS navigation system ITEM NO W3G-01 which was given to me. Can this be used in the United Kingdom? If not what can I do. I do not live in the States Or Canada. I live in LONDON, UK


In the product manual it indicates there is a SD card slot, along with a USB port, so there is a physical method to change the map data to your locale.

However, you should contact the manufacturer to see if their firmware allows you to change/add maps. Garmin GPS units have this capability, and I have used their topo & Road maps together with very good results for off-road adventures out in AZ & Utah.

Directional signals make vitually no audible when clicking


There is a turn signal switch device found under the dash that can sometimes be placed in an area that impedes the sound from reaching the driver. Turn the signal on while parked and in a safe area and listen for the source of the turn signal sound under the dash. Many times they are found along the steering column. Use a long screwdriver touched on the actual assembly and place the handle to your ear to verify that this is the correct assembly. If it is and it's not blocked somehow, check with a parts store for a replacement and tell the you would like one that has a substantially louder indicating sound. They should be able to accommodate and once replaced should resolve this safety issue.

Nextar gps update


Here is a proposed solution. We nextar owners who purchased this, not just for the low price, but for the many selling points. one of which is the ability to "update very soon". This constitutes a deceptive sales practice. Thereby, it is a fraud. This is illegal.

That leaves us consumers with one option. That option is to File a lawsuit against Nextar and their licenced retailers.

We need to band together, organize as a consumer group and either force nextar to comply, or we sue for the cost of a new unit from another company, plus punitive damages.

We as consumers can not continue to accept abuse like this from large corporations.
