Question about Magellan GPS

2 Answers

My 4250 Magellan is having a problem with locations. It tells me to take exit X right now, however exit X is 15 to 20 miles down the road. It appears as though it does not know it's current location. The unit is fully charged, it is plugged in, it has 4 bars so it is getting a good signal, and it is in a holder located on the front windshield. Also the mileage & time to destination are both incorrect. Can anyone help?

    The reset seems to have solved the issue. We are starting again and hopefully we will get to our destination correctly.

    Thanks

This can be a software problem with this unit, the first that you can do first is try resetting the unit and hopefully it correct the problem but if after resetting it and still the same problem a software update should be the next step that you can do and that should fix that concern....

Hope that helps............

It is the way the GPS displays map, do a reset of all options, this will bring the settings to standard view.

    If you are travelling to a route , this is normal, you need to reset route to fix this, it is not a fault.

    See for example on page 44 of user manual:

    "When a route has been calculated it will be displayed
    on the Map screen in green with blue arrows
    indicating direction of travel. The top of the screen
    displays the name of the street you are on. The
    bottom provides information about the next
    maneuver needed.
    The sample to the right shows that the next
    maneuver will be to turn right in 3.3 miles"

I tried to upgrade my Magellan Maestro GPS 4250 with the new firmware that Magellan sent. In the process, I accidentally erased all my data in my 4250 and now inoperable. Please help. Thank you.


if you still have the original DVD that came with the device, i think you can use that to upload them maps and other info, but of course this will just be like having the device brand new.

Lost fuse to Magellan 4250 and cannot find another for sale


I had a similar problem with a Mag. Maestro 4040. I searched high and low for the 4.6 x 16mm fast acting tube fuse 2a 250v. I called Magellan and they would not sell me or tell me where to find this fuse. Needless to say, I found it for $1 at Wayne Electronics in Wayne, NJ. Call them to see if they have the fuse you are looking for.

Use a cell phone charger from motorolla razer, it is not wired correctly and the magellen turns on with an error, unplug the magellan from the cell phone charger and it will reboot.
