I have a friend who drives to earn his livelihood. Well, that is not a big issue! He is using the Nextar Q3 and the way he was bouncing off the ground made me decide that I must have a look at it. Before anything else, I would like to mention that this GPS system is made for cars. If you want to claim yourself as Vasco da Gama, probably the good old paper maps are for you and if in case you do not want to get lost in a big continent like the USA, the Nextar Q3 Touchscreen Portable GPS is undoubtedly a smart choice. Well, I really cannot say that it does not have any cons! If I do, I may be the most cynical human being on Earth and the Almighty is obviously waiting to grab me by a neck!
Jokes apart, the Nextar Q3 Touchscreen Portable GPS discards the concept of getting lost! While Nextar Q3 imparts accuracy to your driving skills with the aid of satellite-based wayfinding! I was amazed to find the built-in maps of all the 50 states of America. Even catchier of all the features is the presence of more than 1.6 million POI (points of interest). The points of interest included in the Nextar Q3 Touchscreen Portable GPS, range from hospitals, landmarks, restaurants, ATMs, airports, and many more.
Let us now have a look at the specifications of the model. No wonder, this is the first thing that we look at for a quick overview of any device or gadget that we buy.

The included device specifications look quite interesting however, the presence of additional accessories undoubtedly make it one of the most favorite GPS devices available in the market.

As I said earlier, there are several shortcomings of the product. It is not perfect. Though it is an awesome product, I had some unexpected experiences. I will discuss in the next section.*

- The system crashed several times and every time I used the product, the date and time had to be reset. This is annoying.
- Yet another aspect that I do not like is the customer service. Every time you call up a number, you will be speaking to an automated machine. I will rather like to speak to a human being.
Apart from the cons that the device has, I liked the device a lot with respect to its overall features and performance. The simplicity of usage is wonderful and no doubt, it will bag some good ratings from me!
