Pros cheap. Paid 91.00 at Belk
Cons Not worth the $91.00.
The software is slow, frequently unresponsive, causing a reset often.
Many addresses are is the system under incorrect names (Summer Field, vs Summerfield)
the screen shatters if pressed in the corner by the stylus.
Summary Not worth the $91.00. Though it may get you from A to B, the address inputting is torturous. Worse, mounted on a pressure stem to the windshield, the Q4 becomes sluggish when the sun is on it, and unresponsive. Using the stylus may break the screen, (it did mine) and voila! no warranty.
Customer service is awful. I spent over an hour just trying to register online- the safety characters were undecipherable, and unreloadable (That last seems to have changed.)
Finally, the screen is unreadable unless straight on- unlike other GPSs, which can be read by both driver and navigator.
But the killer is unreliability. When I was lost and needed the gps, it froze. I reset it and it froze again. I repeatedly pressed the buttons with my thumb, then pulled the stylus, reset again and tried using just the stylus. Pressing on the corner broke the screen. It never unfroze. How would you know you pressed too hard? I am a patient fellow, and a computer geek, so I understand these things, usually. I didn't use excessive force. But the screen broke, and customer service refused to honor the warranty.
Do yourself a favor, do not buy this at any price.This one is just plain bad.
Pros TTS setting tells you street names over speaker. Great screen , bright colors, Upgradable to new maps. One year manufacturer warranty , Great customer service through nextar .
Cons Dropped mine after six months of having , screen started rolling on me . My fault by dropping , Nextar had me send it in under warranty got it repair for me free, so it all worked out in the end for me .
Summary Very easy to use , Must put setting "tts" so it will pronounce streets, Great looking screen, with clear audio. Very happy with this unit.
Pros It has alway's gotten me to my destination!
Cons Earlier models had a few glitches, but the company was excellent to deal with. Very happy!
Summary Easy to use! I couldn't ask for better customer service than what this company offers. They have been excellent to deal with!
Pros NICE pieces of TWO BY FOUR!!!
Cons Wrapped FROM THE COMPANY ALL I GOT WAS WOOD!!!
Summary Bought at TARGET and they REFUSED to do ANYTHING!!
Because it came from Nextar like that.
You take a chance of winding up with NOTHING!!
Pros Nice graphics, large screen
Cons Software glitch
Summary I bought this knowing my daughter would be driving to Detroit to see a play. To her horror dispite what is advertised on the box, it doesnt say the street names (TTS). It says "turn left in 1000 feet" and if there are 3 streets, you wont know which one to turn onto unless you take your eyes off of the road to look at the GPS. Even my 5 year old GPS will ding when you are supposed to turn but not the Nextar. I bought this thing to get her from point A to point B safetly. Without Text to Speech you might be better off just printing if off from Mapquest.
This thing is going back.
