Hi there, the manual for the Nextar 43NT GPS can be downloaded from the Nextar website in PDF format, here's the direct link for your convenience: https://www.nextar.com/images/Product/43NT%20Hardware%20Manual_ML_090407.pdf
Hi. You are facing this problem because of the US GPS Satellite because there's a sudden change with the code signal which leads to GPS signal anomalies. Even though you've traded it. the problem is still there. It's better to go with another brand or model. As this problem cannot be fixed with this unit.
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.
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
