Question about Magellan GPS

1 Answer

Yes, i just got my unit magellan maestro 4250 yesterday and a few hours later it locked up on the first screen where it has a magellan logo and a scroll bar, went to the website to see if there was a fix but saw it had no customer service support open to answer calls on weekends, so i tried maggie but that was no help, i tried and tried several times and nothing still stuck in first boot up screen that says magellan w/scroll bar and now this morning i wentto take it out of the little black case and turn it on thinking perhaps needed a rest but no that was not the case either and also when powered up i noticed then that it had some little areas of black splotches on the screen area too so i know its got some issues!!!

Turn on get a screen saying magellan thats it


  • Check if the unit is fully charged. Because if the unit is not charge you will just stay in the magellan logo.
  • If the unit is full charge and still stay in the Magellan logo find the reset button and press and hold the reset button for 15 seconds while its on and then release.
  • If still the same thats the time need to call the technicall support hotline of magellan if they can repair it free of charge.
  • If you need clarification feel free to reply to this solution.

Maestro 4250 frozen after incomplete 2009 map up date


I had same problem on 3/28/09.

According to Magellan and other people who have experienced the same problem, this is terminal to the unit. It can be caused by downloading the 08/09 Magellan map upgrade, which can cause the unit to permanently lock up. Magellan is well aware of the problem, and should offer to replace your unit if you have the problem. If you elect to have it repaired, Magellan can download the map upgrade for you in the repair process. Here is a site noting the same problem: http://74.125.93.104/search?q=cache:pNLjGT-i4-sJ:forums.gpsreview.net/viewtopic.php%3Ft%3D8958+magellan+4250+gps+stays+on+blue+screen&cd=8&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

Questions for Magellan: 1) why would they sell, in 2009, gps units with old 2007 maps loaded in them, requiring the purchaser to buy a current map, and 2) if there is a problem with downloading the current maps, why is there not an advisement or warning to the installer.

Other than replacing the unit, there appears to be no "fix".

Froze up magellan maestro 4250


I think there is reset somewhere on the unit. Look around. Mine has a slide switch to reset. Try everything. It already doesn't work. Can't hurt it anymore than it is.

No a practical solution, but at least you will get your device repair, after being on hold for 40 minutes I spoke to a very nice rep, unfortunately evethough she didn't admit it, it seems a software problem with the new 2008/2009 map update, in other words no way to fix it, you need to send it for repair, make sure you tell them to update the device with the new 2008/2009 Maps, if not you will have the same problem later on, Good Luck

Can you give the Magellan Maestro 4250 voice commands? If yes how?


Hello rhumphreys,

Yes the Magella Maestro 4250 GPS receiver does have voice recognition built-in and it can be controlled using voice commands.

Magellan has produced a guide to using the voice control feature which is available on their website. To activate the voice control you say the word "Magellan" while viewing the menu screen or a map screen. Then you can speak one of the many commands available for the unit.

To see the full guide go to: http://www.magellangps.com/products/voice.asp.

Best Regards,
Ken
