If you are trying to make it read out the directions, check to make sure that you have selected the right language and that the speaker is not covered. Turn it off. If when you turn it back on and it doesn't read out the selected directions, then you made need to have a new speaker installed at a shop or you may need to update the software using the web site listed below(you might want to try that before going to the shop so that you can save time and money). If you are trying to tell it what to look for by voice controls, check to make sure that the microphone is not covered. Do the same as above. If that doesn't work, then take it to a repair shop.

No volume

this is a simple fix, just go on to languge in settings and select a different voice let it process and you'll hear the new voice.
Then all you do is go back to the original voice and select that it will re-process and work.

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:

i have been told that voice to street is not as clear as the voice just stating turns. If it really bothers you then try voice to turn. I cant remember the setting but it should work well for you.
