Question about Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Maestro 4250 Brand new 4250 seems to have a mind of it's own. It is especially fond of asking me to route addresses when I just had it on the map. At one time it showed me to be traveling at 3 mph when I was sitting still. Could it be picking up another GPS unit? The map repositions itself while just sitting on the desk.

I tried to upgrade my Magellan Maestro GPS 4250 with the new firmware that Magellan sent. In the process, I accidentally erased all my data in my 4250 and now inoperable. Please help. Thank you.

if you still have the original DVD that came with the device, i think you can use that to upload them maps and other info, but of course this will just be like having the device brand new.

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.

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:

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".

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
