    can you help me out with this

  • Anonymous Mar 16, 2009

    I tried turning it off from the back, no success. I ended up buying another unit as I had to leave on a long distance trip and needed the GPS. I would love to know if anyone has come up with a solution. Of course the problem occurred after the year warranty was up!

    when i press the navigation icon I get nothing. However, the music and other apps work. Can someone pls offer assistance. My daughter is driving to Bakersfield and I am trying to avoid purchasing a new gps for her. She has only used this 4 times. I cannot return it because it was given to my husband by his company. Thanks very much for your help.

Why does my Nextar gps system takes foprever to load when turn on


If it is running Win CE then it is VERY old. The GPS is probably failing to see the satelites. Probably time to replace it.

I just purchased the nextar Q4-06 GPS. I set it


Try plugging it into your car with the AC Adapter. I just bought one too and had a problem getting it to do anything until I charged the battery and then everything worked great. Hope it works out for you.

Why does my gps nextar show a red light and not turn on screen is black tryed pushing reset button but nothing happens


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

GPS stuck up


Since the operating system and navigation software are preloaded into the internal flash memory of the GPS, the freezing may either be software or hardware failure. First, press the "Reset" button or push the stylus into the "Reset" hole, to see if the navigation software can load successfully. If the program still does not load, then the software may be corrupted. Also, if the internal memory fails to read or write and the software cannot load properly, it may be caused by hardware failure. In this case you must return the unit for exchange or repair to the retail location from which you purchased it, or contact Nextar for further assistance.

Nextar GPS will not get past loading stage


Nextar will not assist in helping "fix" anything. Their solution is for you to send in the unit and they pitch it, send you one off the assembly line. I was able to get this unit working again in just GPS mode (what it was intended for), so using this workaround, you will lose the ability to use it as a tiny digital photo frame, MP3 player, etc.
I take no responsibility if you try this and "brick" your unit (render it unusable except as a $100 paper weight). BACK UP!!

1) Download and install ActiveSync from the Micro$oft website.

2) Connect the M3-04 unit to your computer

3) Turn it on

4) Red bar should fill and the M3-04 will "hang" in that screen, BUT viola it still connects to ActiveSync

5) Using Explorer from ActiveSync, navigate to ResidentFlash

6) Copy autorun.inf to your PC Desktop, make backup by renaming it to autorun.bak

7) Open autorun.bak with Notepad

8) Change the line to read without the quotes: "\ResidentFlash\Netropa Intellinav\IntelliNav.exe"

9) Save As to your desktop autorun.inf

10) Copy back to your ResidentFlash directory on the M3-04

11) Disconnect from PC and hit the reset button on back....BOOYA! Your GPS is functioning again.

GPS locked up.


My problem has been remedied. I took the product back to the store and got my money back. I am sorry I had to do this but your tech support stinks. I did not think that I should have to pay for tech support on a product that was still under warranty. I did not purchase another Nextar due to the tech support. I will purchase another GPS system from another supplier.
