Question about Nextar X3 GPS Receiver
My nexter gps trys to direct me down car tracks, even ehen it is set ror major roade. i believe the smart card cannot be updated.
is it a dead loss? john
No it's not a dead loss. It's an update problem that may or may not solve your problem. In your settings you will have a few menus you can set as to type of vehicle you have, and what roads or features to avoid. Set these up as well and check out all the sub menus in the system. Be advised though that the unit is looking for the optimal route based on what settings you have in the unit.
Also on a final note, roads change routes change so you have to use some common sense with these things. If it is taking you where you know you shouldn't be like railroad tracks, a pier or some military installation. Common sense is required.
Hope this helps.

Global Positioning Devices, or GPS, are tracked by satellites to
locate their position on Earth in real time. Because they track their own location,
they can help you drive, boat, fly or even walk to a particular destination,
while giving you information such as your speed, elevation, and arrival time as
well. Smart phones have GPS technology built in that is able to update maps
automatically, but traditional GPS's have maps loaded onto them that you must
manually update occasionally via the internet. Different companies have
different ways to do this, but most include straightforward directions on the
Go to your GPS Company's website, and locate the "Maps" section. It will usually be found under "Support" or "Updates" if there is not an obvious "Maps" tab on the homepage. Plug your GPS into your computer with a compatible USB cord.
Follow the steps to installing the USB driver or plug-in from the
website. Click the "Download" link, and read and agree to their terms
if asked. Then press "Save file" if asked.
Go into the "Maps" section of the company's website
again, and go to the "Update maps" section. Your GPS should be
detected by the driver or plug-in, and this will let you know if there are
available updates to install. There may be updated maps available for free, but
you may have to purchase them. Purchase and then press "Download."
Follow the prompts for accepting the terms of agreement, saving the file, and
updating your GPS device.
Restart your GPS by unplugging it from the computer and waiting
for it to update the new maps. Use as normal.
