    My Maestro 4250 gets to the blue Magellan screen and stays there also. Magellan said they do not support out of warranty products.

    Same problem, brand new Mestro 2450 powers up and stays on the blue screen. It worked fine for about 2 weeks, and fine until I was in the middle of downloading the new 08/09 maps, when it froze and now stays in this "blue screen of death".

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

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

Sounds like you got a bad update, you might be able to download an update from magellan, and put it on your sd card then load it that way to finish the update.

Screen stays on the blue magellan screen and won't reset


  • Try to press and hold the reset botton for 15 seconds if that will not work try to press the power botton for at least 10 seconds. If these two will not work, call the tech support of magellan and check if its still under warranty so they can fix it for free. But if its not under warranty try to trade it in for free and they will give you a cheaper price.

Have a 4040 maestro magellan will not get off the magellan screen


if this just happened, and you have not tried to update it (sometimes the update causes this) then power the 4040 on and once it finished loading to the blue screen, using a paper clip, depress the reset switch on the left side and let it restart (little pinhole on the left side under the usb port)


if you need further help, just reply to this post.

Magellan 4250 blue screen, not able to reset


This may mean that the GPS was formatted and there is no data on it. So basically, you can't do anything with it because all the maps and software were deleted.

This is the boot screen, Remove the power connection, and reinsert while you press the "Cancel" button at the same time, if done correctly, your Roadmate should continue to boot and enter the user mode.
