Re: map update for the 3250

I would avoid map updates from Magellan like the plague. They have a strange way of frying the units. Unless you want to be without your GPS and fighting with Magellan for months, leave the map software the way it is.

How do I update my Magellan 3250

You can go to Magellan's website but I can assure you there are no map updates for free.
Try resetting the unit.
Turn it on and find the tiny hole marked reset - -then push and hold a paperclip in the hole until it resets. Try this 3 times if you want to clear it out and start with the maps it came with.

Go here - the official Magellan website and read until you see the word RESET - this is for your model.

Please rate me hi it makes a big difference to me - thanks

Need Set-up CD Magellan Maestro 3250

let me say this 1st because this will be the easy way to fix this assuming you tried to either run the update or ran it again after the failure. if thats the case.

im going to assume you tried to update your unit to the 4.46 update that you downloaded off the magellan site,HERE ( if you havent, i suggest you do it before continuing) and in doing so it bricked your unit.

Magellan Will repair or replace any of there gps sytems that were rendered inoperative due to their updates. they will check your account to see if you downloaded the update.

  • register your unit on if you havent already
  • download the update
  • attempt to install update on your computer
  • call magellan tell them your unit is not booting up after the update

Hours: Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST/PDT
Telephone: 800 707 9971

hopefully you understand what im saying here.

should you decide to take a different route, let me know and i will help you get it up and running if possible.

Map is stuck on an old location and won't change to the new location on the map

take the unit outside so that it has a clear view to the open sky, turn the unit on, then push the reset onthe side(you need a paper clip) youll know its reset once you see the magellan logo screen with the black loading bar on the bottom. let in sit outside to Aguire the satellites. this may take upto 30 minutes. if that does not work, you can try the latest update. bill

Touch Screen

You probably just need to reset it.
Magellan Maestro models- the location of reset button is on the left, right, or bottom side inside a small hole. Use an object to apply pressure to depress the reset button. Also try holding the power button down for up to 10 seconds to power the unit off and again holding the power button down for up to 10 seconds to power the unit on.
You may need to update your firmware. Go to this site
select your product family, model, and then press the submit button. Firmware updates are located in the updates/upgrade section.

This should solve the problem. Good luck. If this helps, plz rate it fixa. Thank you kindly.

Magellan 3250 won't update

Hi, I had the same problem with my 3200. Got the update, and it bricked my unit. After 3 weeks of searching the net for solutions, all of which did not work, I called Magellan Tech Support today. Simply told them that I was updating the maps, update failed, and now the unit will not boot past the blue magellan screen with the progress bar. They asked for some information, including the email address that you used to register the product, and the serial number of the unit, as well as the map update information...which you had to register to get the unlock code. They are able to see all of this c in their tests on the unit, which of course did not work. I was then given a RA#, and account #, and was assured that I would get a pre-paid shipping label via email within 24 hours. All you have to do is pack the unit and take it to fed-ex with the label. They will fix your unit with the updated maps, and return it to you via Fed-Ex. Took no longer than 15 minutes on the phone, which beats the 3 weeks of research that did not help. Problem solved. Just call Tech Support, this is a well-known problem, and they will fix your unit and update the map. Hope this helps.

Maestro 3250 Charging

I accidentally ran into this problem today when I inadvertantly plugged the wrong charger into the unit. I'm guessing that the device isn't getting the precise current it's expecting and thus thinks it's plugged into a computer. I'd suggest getting hold of a different charger and see if the problem goes away.
