La Verne, CA — November 24, 2008 — Nextar, a designer and marketer of bold and new consumer electronic products with mass appeal, is making arriving at holiday destinations a whole lot easier this year. Its Q4 series of GPS navigation systems provide an ample, easy-to-see 4.3″ touch-screen display and voice-guided, turn-by-turn prompts through a stereo speaker. The units are available now for the busy upcoming holiday shopping and party seasons.

“The user-friendly Nextar Q4 GPS navigation system series gets shoppers and holiday party goers to wherever it is they want to go by the quickest, easiest way possible,” said Eddy Zheng, Nextar founder. “Each model in the series makes an excellent holiday gift for anyone that travels a lot, does delivery work, or who is directionally challenged.”

The backbone of the Q4 series is model Q4-01. It features a generous 4.3″ TFT touch-screen display that provides large, clear, colorful images of maps from all 50 states. A special automatic night mode offers additional screen lighting for even easier-on-the-eye viewing. Voice-guided directions with turn-by-turn voice prompts are clearly audible through a built-in stereo speaker.

The Nextar Q4-01 navigation system provides 1.6-million points of interest, including hotels, shopping centers, gas stations, and restaurants. Instant route recalculation is provided in case a driver misses a turn. Digital map data is supplied by NAVTEQ, the preeminent provider of comprehensive digital map information for automotive navigation systems.

Other features include storage capability for up to 300 addresses of favorite destinations, 2D and 3D map-viewing modes with built-in compass, a SD card slot for additional memory, and a built-in high-sensitive antenna. It also has the capability to play MP3 files and display JPEG images. A lightweight, built-in rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery supplies power.

Model Q4-02 is a step up from the Q4-01. Similar in many ways to the Q4-01, it includes several key upgrades. In addition to having maps for the 50 US states, it includes maps for Canada and Puerto Rico, all pre-loaded on one 4GB SD card. The Q4-02 also includes an extended six-million points of interest.

Each model measures 4.6″ x 3.2″ x 0.8″ and weights approximately 2.3 pounds.
