Device not only gets drivers to their destination, but also does so with no delays; Q4-LT Model to Be Featured at 2009 CES along with Other Advanced Nextar Products.

Nextar™, a designer and marketer of bold and new consumer electronic products with mass appeal, will soon be taking the wraps off of its latest GPS navigation unit, the Q4-LT. The unit includes a free lifetime subscription for live traffic reports that will be audible thru the vehicle’s radio system. The unit features USA and Canadian maps, which are provided on a 2GB SD card. Nextar will feature the unit at the upcoming 2009 CES in booth South 3-31753.

“As convenient and handy as a GPS device is, a major drawback, until now, has been its lack of affordable real-time information,” stated Eddy Zheng, Nextar founder. “Our new Nextar Q4-LT GPS unit eliminates that drawback as it provides live, up-to-the-second traffic reports for free. Users will know immediately if they will encounter any traffic problems that will slow their journey.”

The lifetime live traffic reports are provided at no additional charge and are available right out of the box. No activation will be required as the special feature will work the moment the system is turned on. Nextar is working with NAVTEQ® to provide users lifetime free traffic with discrete advertising and special promotions that are offered to users based on their location.

The unit includes a 4.3” touch-screen display, 3D landmark and sign-post viewing, and a built-in speaker. 1.6-million points of interest, including hotels, shopping centers, gas stations, and restaurants, are included. Text-to-speech technology distinctly pronounces road names in a user-selected language of either English, Spanish, or French. Digital map data is supplied by NAVTEQ, the preeminent provider of comprehensive digital map information for automotive navigation systems.

The Nextar Q4-LT is the perfect traveling companion. In addition to its live traffic report capability, it also comes with the ability to play MP3 files as well as display JPEG images. A built-in antenna ensures signal reception. Power is supplied by a lightweight, built-in rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery. Accessories include: AC/DC adapter, car power adapter, USB cable, external RDS receiver, protection pouch, suction cup, and a stylus/touch pen.

The system measures 4.6” x 3.19” x 0.8” and weighs 2.3 pounds.

Pricing and Availability
The new Nextar Q4-LT navigation system with free live traffic reports will be available in Q3 2009 at leading retailers across the country. It has an SRP of $249.99 w/free lifetime traffic. The system is neatly packaged in an attention-grabbing full-color box.
