    I agree I have been trying to get my Nextar model HGPS35 updated for two months. I have called Nextar and get the same story no updates at this time. My question is this why can Garman and the others have updates and Nextar cannot. Also when I purchased my model in December 2006 from HSN one day special I was informed in the near future I would be able to update my GPS online. My manual states the same thing. Guess what it is almost two years and still no update. Please do not buy Nextar it appears they could care less and are not intrested in repeat business. I went to several retailers who sell Nextar and asked them if they had any update maps for my unit. I was informed no and they were unaware of this problem. My brother purchased a Garman model and he just updated his GPS. I really like my GPS and all I am asking for is to update my maps. It has been two years please Nextar wake up and take care of your customers!

    I am online now, much like you all it appears have been, trying to find updates for my Nextar and having no luck as well. My wife does home health and received this unit for Christmas. She was very excited and thougth it would be great time saving tool for her. She has been very disappointed thus far and is really hoping an update will post soon. I would not recommend this product to a friend (or an enemy as far as that is concerned).



    Still lost in VA.

Here is a proposed solution. We nextar owners who purchased this, not just for the low price, but for the many selling points. one of which is the ability to "update very soon". This constitutes a deceptive sales practice. Thereby, it is a fraud. This is illegal.

That leaves us consumers with one option. That option is to File a lawsuit against Nextar and their licenced retailers.

We need to band together, organize as a consumer group and either force nextar to comply, or we sue for the cost of a new unit from another company, plus punitive damages.

We as consumers can not continue to accept abuse like this from large corporations.

My solution to solving this problem is to buy a name brand unit which I plan to do shortly. Have already suffered enough frustration and will have to chalk it up to a bad experience. Too many bad reviews on Nextar units! This company does not give reliable support.

Unfortunaetly nextar has been doing a VERY bad job making updates for any of there GPS models. As such, there are NO updates released for this model and judging by what other consumers say, it looks like there might not be any in the near future. as for the manual it has nothing on how to update it.
sorry about this, but if it becomes a real problem you might want to consider getting a gps from a different company.

i personally recommend newegg.com youll get TONS of customer reviews and some pretty low prices.

Nextar Now offers update for a price. $59.00 for one time and $79.00 for a 1 year subscription. My problem is I have had my unit (a Q-4) for a year and the maps were so outdated when I bought it, I went and bought a different brand because the nextar was useless for me in a lot of the areas I travel.

How do I update my Nextar x3-08 gps so the new roads will show up ?


visit Nextar.com to order your desired maps update and Check the overview description to see which SD card lists your GPS model number and serial number. Order the matching card.

Remove the existing SD card. This is usually found in a thin, rectangular slot on the side of the Nextar GPS.

Insert the SD card with the maps update into the empty SD card slot. Press until it clicks into place.

Reset the unit by pressing the "Reset" or pushing a pin into the "Reset" hole.

Click the "Navigation" button to have the maps automatically update on the GPS.

How do I get my GPS upgrade to in clude the new routes


unless you update maps on a regular basis (once a year or) new roads may not show on screen, the Map updates are not free,Garmin charges about $100 USD, the other issue is that not all the roads in the USA are in the software, so this can happen, the system is not perfect but it is good, just wanted you to knopw that Nextar doesn't have any updates, other do like Garmin and Tomtom.

My Nextar X3-01 sometimes has misses such as: one area near my home always indicates off road, also on a recent trip i found my unit directed me off road for no apparant reason, also the unit will not...


these are just the common errors in the programmed maps stored inside the unit, I have had a GPS for years and have had this happen many times to my suregrin, sent down dirt roads, routed around in circles and so on.

How to update map to new roads.


The only way to do this is through an update.

Nextar does have a 2009 SD card with new maps on it. Go to their website, look in the lower right hand corner, and there is a link to the new maps update.

It has a list of compatible devices. If yours is on the list, then that's it!

L am looking for map updates for nextar gps


Unfortunately Nextar GPS systems come with only USA/Canada or UKmaps , maps for other regions are not available, and there are also not much upgrade.
Maps from third party usually do not work on this unit.
The only way to know if a download is available is simply calling them at their toll free numbers, they do not make available online downloads:

Technical Support
1-888-849-0846

Technical Support (For U.K. Only)
0800-047-0126

The good thing is that upgrades and map are both free, while on other models you have to pay for maps.

Give them a call to unlock a download to latest map.


Regards.
