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.

Our Magellan Maestro 4250, came on by itself and will not turn off.


is it plugged to AC charge when it comes on?

If not seek out the RESET hole and place a fine pin or paper clip end in and reset the unit

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.

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.

Map update error problem with Magellan 4250


I called tech support and they said that the update requires XP SP1 or SP2, NOT SP3. I have not tried it yet, but they told me it was a problem with not being compatible with XP service pack 3

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
