Nextar Q4-LT - New GPS from the newest Major on the Block

Nextar announced the Q4-LT a widescreen unit that offers free lifetime traffic from NAVTEQ. The free traffic will be supported by small ads that will display on the screen - when? not sure. Garmin does it with small ads that are displayed only after you are stopped for more than 10 seconds. I think that it's a great deal, but others think that it's just wrong. You'll have to decide for yourself.

At the same time they announced that for the month of November, Nextar was the #3 brand in the US. "Nextar's units sold in the U.S. rose an astonishing 473% during the month of November compared to October according to The NPD Group's retail tracking service. Nextar's sales have been steadily increasing, taking them from sixth in September 2008 to fourth in October 2008 (63% increase in units sold over September) and now third in November 2008 (473% increase in units sold over October) in the mobile navigation category."

Nextar M3-MX1 GPS for Select Latin American Markets


Nextar is launching a new model (M3-MX1) directed at the Latin American market. They will be taking a standard screen (3.5-inch) model with what appears to be an iGo interface from NavNGo. The units will be available in Mexico, Argentina, and Brazil this Spring. Pricing is $249 street price, but I would expect a lower effective price when it hits the market.

Clearly as several factors come together, GPS in developing countries will become attractive; lower overall prices become more affordable, saturation in major N. American and Euro markets, and declining revenue pushing makers to look elsewhere for sales.
