Question about Nextar X3-03 Car GPS Receiver
Solution #1 is incorrect. Just bought on of these units at K-Mart the other day. The X3-03 uses NAVTEQ maps, it's even mentioned in the owners manual. Plus there is no CD software that comes with the unit. Plugging the unit into any PC just makes the PC make connect and disconnect alert sounds repeatedly until the unit is unplugged from the USB port. It never even asks where the driver files are.
I to contacted Nextar through email and asked about updates to the unit and maps. This was their response:

Sorry to open up an old thread.
but it looks like you need to have Microsoft Active Sync to open up the SD card on the x3-03.
download for free from microsoft.com
and as far as the updates, register with nextar or buy the updates from navteq.

Sounds like the tech support rep you talked to didn't even know his own device since the device uses Tele Atlas maps, not NAVTEQ. I'd call back asking to speak with a service manager who is more knowledgeable about returns/exchanges. As far as drivers go, those can be installed from the CD that came with the device
