Magellan Maestro 4250 GPS Power Failure

We just bought the Magellan GPS and now we can't turn it on. In the course of two days it work fine. Seems to have no power or maybe the on/off switch isn't working??? Tried home outlet, car outlet, and computer power supplies. Tried using the reset button. Nothing. Any ideas?

    I'm having the same problem I just got mine Sunday. If I leave it alone for a while it works again. I don't know if it's defective or I'm not holding the button long enough or too long.

Hi guys. No need to panic. I thought I had the same problem when I got mine but actually there is no problem. Somehow, the off-on switch on the system is kind of funny. U really have to have small finger and depress the switch as far as u can until the system comes on. Might not be the fix you're looking for but give it a try anyway. Nothing to lose. Good luck.

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 GPS, the display seems to wash out on sunny days so that it is unreadable. That's without direct sunlight on the unit. Can anything be done or adjusted?


The Magellan 4250 LCD display brightness settings does not do much. I can understand how annoying it is to have the sun's glare on the display making it unreadable. You can improvise a simple sun shade like i did, cut and fit a card board strip on top of your GPS unit to block out the sun glare. It's just simple and cheap solution.

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.

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.

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
