This is an average to good product. While the video doesn't quite keep up with you as quick as the sound does, it does give you a pretty good idea of where you are at.
I was hoping when I got that I could load a route on it from the computer, but not that I can find. This is a beginners gps, it does help me a lot in my driving. I get lost frequently when I am running my vending route, especially when I add new places. It did save me about an hour a day on my routes.
The sound I would like to go a little higher, I usually hold the system in my hand backwards to know exactly when to turn.
The one important and positive thing is that it is VERY accurate for the street locations and dead ends and so on.
I use Microsoft streets and trips to get my routes organized to save time, the problem is that it will send down streets that end or down streets that have 20 stop signs and the next street over has 2 lights in the same streatch.

This is a good little unit, a bit easier to work with than the Garmin I use in my work truck and a lot less expensive. The only thing I dislike about Nextar is their 800 number is closed by the time I get off work, making it difficult to get a return authorization for warranty on the c3 I got for my father-in-law. He can't seem to figure out how to do it, though he tells me the customer service agent was real nice and helpful. I bought the x3 so he would have a gps while I try to find the time to get warranty on the c3. He's extremely happy.
I cannot give a true review of this product due to the fact that it is frozen on the charging screen. It will not turn off, nor will it load past this main screen. Nextar's customer service is horrible, I waited 20 minutes for someone to take my call, and as usual they didnt speak english very well so i could not understand them at all. When i plugged the unit into my computer, the whole system shut down! I can send it back since it is under warranty, but i have to PAY for shipping!!!! (on a product that NEVER worked). Just beware, this problem has happened before to other buyers.
I initially bought this GPS for the good price. It seemed like a good deal compared to the other GPS's on the market.
I had a hard time entering addresses for a target location. It did not understand or recognize some of the targets I would enter. It may have been me and my lack of knowledge of such gadgets as these.
In the directions, it tells you to unplug the GPS from the power source before starting the car. It is very easy to forget to unplug the GPS each time you shut of the car and restart it. Consequently, I've fried the unit after only 4 uses.
Used the Nextar Q3 on a trip last week and liked it but wanted something more compact. The Nextar X3-02 fit my needs Flat and touch screen programing about just 2/3 the size of Q3. The only thing the Q3 had a master switch to save the battery when not in use.
The X3-02 came with a carrying case and a mount for it. Think this will be great little receiver that will fit in the pocket.
