I took the 2 tiny rubber plugs out of the black part of the case, and underneath them were small screws. I removed the screws and used a credit card to pry open the case. The credit card helps snap the latches around the inside edge of the case. Finally I used the credit card to pop the double tape seal inside the middle of the black cover. All of this, only to see that the power connection wasn't loose but detached from the circuit board. Even if I fixed it, it appears to be a very poor design for something that needs to be unplugged frequently.

How do i open my magellan gps-maestro 4250-to get a broken screen out?


there are 4 screws hidden under the little black rubber plugs on the back of the unit...remove those 4 screws, then slip something small and flat (i use my finger nail) around the area where the back and front of the case meet...there are several snaps that hold it together that youll have to break loose to seperate the back and front....slowly seprate then and disconnect the screen ribbon from the main board...
the screen is only held in by little clips on the sides...just gently pull the case away from the screen in those areas and the screen will pop out

let me know if you need further help

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.

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
