Question about Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Magellan maestro 4250

Two problems with the Maestro 4250:
1. recently surfaced two small 1cm and 0.5 cm size sky fireworks like black spots from inside the screen and could not be scraped out from outside.

2. a) My Sprint Samsung A900 phone is paired, works when I call from my cell and other party answers, I close my cell and able to talk via the Maestro. But, when some one calls, I could not answer through GPS. It says no paired phone found.
b) When I tap on the phone symbol on the Maestro screen, same thing, no paired phone is found. I pair again and try to dial out, it tries and says "SMS can not be used" or something like that.
In essence, my pairing is not being retained and can not use the Maestro to receive or dial out or send SMS or receive them.
How do I fix these problems? I e-mailed to Magellan Professional Staff few times and no one replied to me.
I appreciate your expected help.
My e-mail is: askdoctor@hotmail.com

    Same here. Black streaks like spilled oil behind the screen. It come out without warning and stays there, just getting larger.

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.

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

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
