Question about GPS
SOURCE: Magellan Maestro 4250
I just called Magellan.....1-800-707-9971. I got my 4250 for Christmas 2007 and never did register it. We did that over the phone and then he gave me a repair order and an address to send the unit to them. It will be fixed under warranty.....my only cost is the UPS or FED EX shipping. He said I will have it back in 7 to 10 days. OUTSTANDING service.
Mine was stuck on the blue screen.......and the pin reset did nothing.
SO......best of luck to you all......and I highly suggest calling Magellan.

SOURCE: WILL NOT TURN ON
try the reset button/switch:
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.
If the unit continues to freeze, update to the latest firmware update
. Firmware updates are located on Magellan's support page. On Magellan's support page select your product family, model, and then press the submit button. Firmware updates are located in the updates/upgrade section

We had the same problem but it seems to have solved itself after I kept the power switch pushed in for an extended time after which the unit went through a start-up sequence. My guess is the this action started a reset procedure for the unti

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.
