Question about Magellan Maestro 4250 GPS
When I plug my device in there is no lights sounds or indications that the device is indeed charging. My question is do i have to leave it plugged in for a while then it will automaticly boot up or is there something wrong with this particular device?
I have the Magellan 4250 and was also confused by this at first. However, you can see the unit charging. If you plug in the wall charger, turn on the unit and go to the User Options menu and select System Settings. You will see a green power indicator at the bottom of the page under the button options. When you are charging the unit, this will be pulsing. Once the unit is fully charged the green line will be solid and unmoving. It takes a long time to charge so you may have to be patient. I turn off the gps while it is sitting on this menu page and when you turn it back on you will be on the page and it is easy to see if the charging has completed.
There are no sounds or indications unless you go to this menu page. It does seem strange.

I felt the same way until I found the Pattry charging icon in the "system settings menue. Go to User Options and then choose the System settings. At the botto the menue is a battery icon with a number of boxes. If it is charging the boxes illuminat in a sequence. If it is un pluged the icon shows , by number of "boxes" the strength of the charge.

It usually needs to be left for a while until it start recharging, a few minutes or so. If this does not solve anything then it would be best for You to bring it back for servicing.
