I'm almost positive that they never come traffic ready. My Magellan came in the mail today, and the box had the registration code/directions on activating the live traffic.

From magellangps.com:

To retrieve the Subscription Code you should use a 20 Digit Coupon Code which is found towards the bottom of the 8 X 11 sheet of paper included in the box of your GPS that is titled "Magellan TrafficKit Service Activation".
The Subscription Code can be retrieved by following the below mentioned Steps:

  1. In a browser window, navigate to www.magellangps.com
  2. Under the "Products" option select "Magellan Traffic Service".
  3. Under "Traffic Subscription Services" click "Redeem a Subscription Coupon" Note: You can Purchase/Renew Subscription if the free subscription has expired by Clicking "Purchase a Traffic Subscription/ Renew a Traffic Subscription"
  4. Select the product model from the list provided
  5. Type your Email Address & Password to login to the Magellan Note: If you dont have a user account, Select "Click here to create an account"
  6. Click the option "Select" corresponding to the correct Product Serial Number
  7. Click the "Yes" tab to confirm the Serial Number
  8. Enter the Coupon Code provided in the box and click "Retrieve Subscription Code"
  9. Write down the Subscription Code to use it in the GPS for activation

How to upgrade Magellan Maestro 3250


Hello
You have to contact the Magellan Technical support to upgrade this device. Even for a battery replacement too, you can't do it by yourself. It can also be done at the Authorised Service Center for Magellan at your town, as its user manual says. OK.

Does magellan lose its map if battery gos dead


hi etranchina,

no, you wont loose your maps if your battery goes dead. if you loose your maps, you have other issues. correct me if im wrong, but doesnt your 3250 have a map card. i would suggest backing up your maps on to your computer, if there still there...i always back up every gps i get.

are you concerned your battery is going dead, if so, why? that unit is know to develope a bad connection in the usb port (your power port)

let me know if you need further help

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 magellangps.com 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.

How do I unlock Magellan 3250 voice? It says I


if you just bought this, im sure the voice should be unlocked already since its part of the advertised features of the 3250. it should also have the live traffic feature for up to one year.

you can call Magellan here

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.
