SOURCE: Magellan Maestro 4250 2008/2009 Map Update will not update my GPS

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.

My Magellan 1412 has a black piece of tape on the bottom. The SD card is behind this tape.

Tryed to update my magellan 4250 at mid update I lost my internet connection and the update stopped. Now all I get is a blue screen that says Magellan on and nothing else happens, Also my PC will not find...

If your PC does not see the usb when you connect it to the computer. Then it means you will need to seek further assistance from magellan, because the solution for the unit is to connect it to a computer, and since the computer is not reading it, then you need to get to a close by magellan center or you mail them on this link

Hope this helped.

How to use my gps


To use your magellan gps,
  • Mount in-dash models on your dashboard with accessories found on the Magellan website. The company offers motorists kits to get the systems right where you want them for easy driving reference.
  • Use touch-screen controls on the in-dash models. Magellan's Maestro and Roadmate product lines, made for use in vehichle provide convenient touch-screen technology for better safety on the road.
  • Use voice-generating software. The in-dash models also provide guidance by voice instruction. Sit back and let the Magellan device tell you where to go, or reference detailed maps at your fingertips.
  • Use cell-phone type "button" controls on outdoor models like Magellan Triton and eXplorist. Use these keys to get data on speed, distance and location. These devices are also made for the outdoors, durable and ultra-portable.
  • Get the best of both worlds with the Magellan Crossover. This model comes with the features of a car model, but also fits into your pocket for outdoor trekking. Use the Crossover for activities like boating and geocaching, or mount it on your dash and get on the road. Versatile models like the Magellan CrossoverGPS are popular among those who are truly on the go.
Take care and good luck

Display only blinks, how to reset the unit?

hey there michael_wick,

you need to install version 1.68 first before the 2.14 unless you have that installed already.

why cant you update it via the USB cable to your computer...all magellan GPS require at least Windows OS XP service pack 2 to sync with the computer.

if your not seeing the crossover listed in your computer, can you see the usb connection wizard in the lower left of the task bar on your computer.

btw, is this a true crossover, or a 2200T thats been upgrated with the crossover firmware?

I need to upgrade firmware on this unit

there are actually a few different updates for this gps..the link im going to give is for the north american model..if you have one other then the NA model, stop here and ost back to me.

first youll have to determine which update you need by going in the system setting and locate the firmware currently installed..if its lower then 1.68 install the 1.68 first and do not just jump to the 2.14 update as it will throw all kinds of fits and probably make it unusable ...choose the 2.14 update to install if you have the 1.68 version currently installed

updates and manuals the the NA crossover can be found and downloaded HERE

if you have any problem or i have confused you in anyway, please post back before you attempt this update.

you will have to register your crossover before Magellan will allow you to download the update.

follow the installation to the letter as described in the update..i recommend the unit be plugged in to the home charger although magellan says make sure the battery is full.

hi gtrojan even with a deed battery or no battery at all for that matter, your crossover should still start normally while connected to external power.

first try the reset, with the unit on (even if it is dim)use a paper clip and insert it in the little hole on the side. if it starts normally and is still plugged to the charger, go to the main menu/options/power and see if the chaging indicator is moving from side to side. if it is not moving,

The following Magellan 800,860,2000,2200t,2500,(crossover) 3000,3050,3100,3140,4000,4040,4050 and the 6000t are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your Magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port.

you may also have another issue with the screen but you need to find out why its not charging 1st.

you can get it repaired here
or buy the port here

let me know if you need further help!

Magellan Crossover - Need software tools to load waypoints, etc

Download the 2.14 firm ware update - run it it has the usb driver in it - other tools that are on the cd are useless - unless you want to add your own POI's - this unit does not let you see the map files on it - but I am looking for that if I find it I will come back here.

My magellan crossover GPS is not recognized by my PC

I had the same problem.

The device drivers are included with the firmware updates.
download the firmware from

Even if you don't need a firmware update run the installer. The installer will stop when it can't find your gps. Before the installer stops it will extract the drivers. Right-click on your gps in windows "device manager" & select "update driver". Windows should be able to find the drivers now.
