Question about Magellan Maestro 4250 GPS
I bought re-conditioned unit and came with the old version 2007 map. I bought the 2009 map update. I tried to update my GPS as instructed. My computer gave me error message " Fail to read source ". I tried again to update. It gave me another error message " Data transfer failure". Called Magellan support. After three e-mail, they said my DVD CD was corrupt. They could sent me another one DVD CD and all I have to do is sent them shipping cost, $10.00. I received the new DVD CD. I tried to update. It gave me the same Error messages like before.
I also had problems with a refurbished Magellan 4250. The paperwork inside said to install the 4.85 firmware update which I found would not work with Windows XP Home at least for me. I used my laptop which has Vista Ult 32 bit it updated with no problem that is so far the only solution I used.

there are 4 screws hidden under the little black rubber plugs on the
back of the unit...remove those 4 screws, then slip something small and
flat (i use my finger nail) around the area where the back and front of
the case meet...there are several snaps that hold it together that youll
have to break loose to seperate the back and front....slowly seprate
then and disconnect the screen ribbon from the main board...
the screen is only held in by little clips on the sides...just gently pull the case away from the screen in those areas and the screen will pop out
let me know if you need further help
