Hi depending on how old your system is its probably just your battery that needs replacement ,though it should work while connected to power source check the power inlit make sure it is not damaged or broken goodluck

My 4250 stopped talking. I ran the diagnostic


Probably a bad speaker, common problem with GPS units. Is there any sound at all, have you tried calling your cell phone to see if you can hear the rig through the GPS?

Try that and if you still can't hear anything it could be the speaker.

I updated my magellan 4250 to v4.86 and now it will not work with the car charger. Screen states that USB is connected and I should follow prompts on PC screen. It work fine before the upgrade.


turn it on and hook it back up to the computer and once it has installed, use the safely remove hardware wizard to remove the 4250 from your computer, then plug it into your car again...if that fails, turn it on then try the reset on the side (little pin hole) use a paperc clip to reset it.

if you need further help, just reply to this post.

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.

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.

Magellan Maestro 4250 GPS Power Failure


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.
