The problem with your nextar is either the battery or the charger is faulty. Either ways you need to test them both then replace the faulty part. That is why the gps receiver is not powering up.
Do not panic when your gps seems to be acting funny, There is no problem without a solution, and if it is beyond repair the solution will simply be that you replace the gps receiver.

  1. Test the battery in another gps receiver, to see if it will power it on,
  2. Charge the battery in another gps receiver for about 2 hours with another charger then try to power it on,
  3. If it turns on, then it means the battery is okay and working fine, but if it does not turn on the other gps, then it means the battery is bad and need to be replaced.
  1. Test the charger on another gps receiver to see if it will work.
  2. If it does not work then you need to replace it,
  3. But if it works then you do not need to replace it.
After carrying out the test, you will be able to detect the problem and solve it.
Hope this information helped.

This is most likely just a programming error. You'll need to reset your navigator system. It wouldn't be a bad idea to download the latest available updates for your system and upgrade while your at it. Without more information I'm afraid I can't tell you where to download the updates but you should be able to get them from your systems manufactures web site.

First thing that we can do here is to do a RESET on your unit , 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 either case, please return the unit for exchange or repair to the retail location from which you purchased it, or contact Nextar for further assistance.

How can I update my gps nextar x3i-02

Nextar X3-02 GPS... | Answered on Dec 10, 2009

Actually, it's quite easy to replace:

i. Take off four screws at the back.
ii. Between the body and the front bezel, insert a utility knife. The bezel is fixed to the body with tabs. I started from the left hand side from front. The tab is in the center. Careful not to scratch the bezel or the body. Once one tab is open, you can slide the knife or whatever tool you're using to open the rest. Be careful not to scratch.
iii. Once the front bezel comes off, you'll see that the touchscreen is held to the bezel with the help of four tabs. take the touchscreen off.
iv. Next, take the ribbon cable off from behind the screen. You'll have to flip the flap holding the cable open.
v. The screen is held to the main board with the help of a tape. Don't take it off. Take off three smaller screws which fasten the circuit board to the back body.
vi. Take the antenna off. It's quite easy. It's the same connector that is used for Blue-tooth or wireless antenna on laptops. It'll just flip off.
vii. Next, take the board off from the back plastic body. The circuit board will still be held to the back by two connectors, one (two wire, smaller one) connecting the circuit board to the speaker, and another (larger one, four wires) connecting it to the battery. Both the battery and the speaker are for now fixed to the back plastic body.
viii. Once you've done that, the battery is exposed. Take the battery off (held by two tapes, and some double sided sticky tape to the back body).

The battery is 35mmx55mmx5mm. Buy any 3.7v battery from ebay. That'll cost you about $10, including shipping. The only problem is that on ebay, you might not be able to buy the same connector. Most of the batteries that you get from there also have protection circuitry to protect against overcharging etc. So you'll only have to replace the connectory. For this, take apart the battery from top. Just peel off the green tape. That will expost the connections. Solder them off, and replace the entire chord on the new battery.

Sorry, I'm too depressed right now on account of loosing my job :-) Otherwise, I'd have included pics too. But I guess if you're not afraid to do DIY projects, you should be able to change the battery yourself. Quite easy.

When batteries will not hold a charge... this atypically indicates a need to replace the batteries

Nextar X3-02 GPS... | Answered on Oct 06, 2009

Mine does this from time to time. I pull the SD map card, power it off, and hit the reset button while the unit is unplugged. These units are notorious for this. But then again, they're inexpensive. No receipt ... well, you're pretty much stuck with it. No receipt, no return or repair.

You cannot modify the voice like you can for TomTom. You are pretty much stuck with the female voice if you want voice prompts.
