I when turn on my Maestro 4250 the screen is all white and I don't see any menu.


Plug it into your computer to see if it recognizes it. Perform a software update from magellan's website. If it still has the white screen, press the reset button with a pen.

If none of that works, then your unit may be defective. Call magellan for a warranty replacement.

Turn on get a screen saying magellan thats it


  • Check if the unit is fully charged. Because if the unit is not charge you will just stay in the magellan logo.
  • If the unit is full charge and still stay in the Magellan logo find the reset button and press and hold the reset button for 15 seconds while its on and then release.
  • If still the same thats the time need to call the technicall support hotline of magellan if they can repair it free of charge.
  • If you need clarification feel free to reply to this solution.

Maestro 4250 frozen after incomplete 2009 map up date


I had same problem on 3/28/09.

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

Questions for Magellan: 1) why would they sell, in 2009, gps units with old 2007 maps loaded in them, requiring the purchaser to buy a current map, and 2) if there is a problem with downloading the current maps, why is there not an advisement or warning to the installer.

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

My Magellan Maestro 4250 got a lot of small black dots on the screen spread out on the right and side. Then most of them moved so they are now clustered together in a small circle on the right side. ...


It seems to me that you may have some dead pixels on your screen and the only fix is a new or good used screen.
I purchased a unit off ebay that had software issues and now my unit works great.
Hope this helps you out

Magellan maestro touch screen never did work very well (didn't see strokes) and now doesn't work at all. Any hope?


I have Magellan Maestro 4250 GPS.  There are two things you can do.
1. Update the firmware to the latest from Magellan website by registering your unit.
2. Use a stylus.  
Also if the unit was dropped check for damage.
Good luck.

No a practical solution, but at least you will get your device repair, after being on hold for 40 minutes I spoke to a very nice rep, unfortunately evethough she didn't admit it, it seems a software problem with the new 2008/2009 map update, in other words no way to fix it, you need to send it for repair, make sure you tell them to update the device with the new 2008/2009 Maps, if not you will have the same problem later on, Good Luck
