Hello,

yes, you can download info into another SD Card. There are some computers that has space for SD card and there is also what is called card reader. You can fix your SD card into the card reader and your computer will recognize the SD card like a flash driver, then copy the info into the SD card.

You can download the firmware update for your unit from the below link:

Good luck.

The other company  non -brand SD-card will not support.You will have to buy the branded nextar gps SD-card which supports m3-06 unit.Its very simple .Just insert the SD-card in the slot . Installing the updated maps does not require a computer or internet connection. Users simply insert the SD card into the unit's SD slot then download the card's contents. Updated maps are available for the following Nextar GPS devices:  3.5" M3 Portable Navigation Series:

    nextar gps comes with pre-installed sd-car in the unit.And other brand sd-card does not supports the unit.The message which you are receiving is for "inserting sd-card ".But you dont have sd-card in the unit.You will have to get the exact supporting sd-card for your unit from nextar service center or from local stores dealing in nextar products and supplier.In other case the gps will not function properly.
    Thanks for the query.

I have a Nextar x3-08 gps. It will not go beyond the opening screen. It just suddenly stopped working. Any idea what may be wrong with it? Thank you.


Once again, it's a software issue or a corrupted SD card. You can purchase a new card but the same old mapping on Nextar.com or Navteq.com. To ensure that your software stays working properly, backup the SD card onto your computer so if the SD card gets corrupted you can restore the software and files back onto your card or a new SD card that can be purchased for around 20 bucks.

Doesnt go to navigation screen nextar x3-03


If it says it can't find map data then your SD card is corrupted.

It's a fatal flaw in the WindowCE 5.0 operating system that was used for Nextar GPS builds. Basically, if you have a power glitch while it's reading your SD card (contains the maps) then your SD card get's corrupted.

Don't expect any help from Nextar. You will have to get the original data from another person's SD card with the exact same model

How do you download music to your gps


You do not download music to the GPS, put music files onto a SD card and then put that card into the GPS. You have to remove the Map SD card to do this so you cannot play music and use the GPS at the same time.
