Question about Magellan Maestro 4250 GPS

2 Answers

My Maestro 4250 won't turn on and I have had it for 3 years or so. Any idea why it would stop working all of a sudden? To the best of my knowledge I have not dropped it or spilled any liquid on it or anything of that nature. For a couple of days it randomly turned on and then it just stopped turning on altogether. The charger itself still lights up when plugged into the car, but the unit doesn't turn on at all.

The power ports are know to go bad on these and may other magellan do to there poor design. for now lets assume the port is ok. if you havent tried a hard reset yet, try that 1st. if that fails to restart it, plug the charger in for a few minutes and hold the power button for up to 15 seconds (magellan 3000t,3050t and the 6000t take upto forty five seconds) untill it starts..if it starts, go to the system setting and check to make sure the power meter is moving..if the battery is below full and the meter does not move, its not charging. let me know if that helps you.

Once I updated my Magellan Maestro 4250 the beginning Magellan screen comes on & the bar at the bottom advances like its loading then it stops and freezes. I've tried reseting it without success...


Try re booting, turn off like normal, then when you go to turn it on, hold power button down all the way through the start up, and 15 seconds more than release the on button, now it's rebooted, see if that helps, let me know.

My 4250 stopped talking. I ran the diagnostic


Probably a bad speaker, common problem with GPS units. Is there any sound at all, have you tried calling your cell phone to see if you can hear the rig through the GPS?

Try that and if you still can't hear anything it could be the speaker.

Magellan Maestro 4250 freezing up


I just purchased a referb from TigerDirect and the only issue I discovered was a lockup when the unit goes to sleep. Try holding down the power button for 15 seconds then release it to cycle the unit. Then hold the power button down again for 5 second to start it back up. I had to do this for my bluetooth to work and not freeze up. Now I just turn it on and off manually and avoid having it go to sleep. I also downloaded the firmware update to 4.86, you can download it from Magellan's website. My unit works great so if that doesn't work contact Magellan and I'm sure they will have a solution.

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

I have owned the Magellan Maestro 4250 for 6 months and the black cloudy spots just surfaced.  After talking to the Techs at Magellan (800) 707-9971, they advised me to send it into the factory for repairs.  Hopefully the one year warranty covers it.
