"OK in most ways, but MAC-HOSTILE!"

BhamBill, CNET
7 March 2010
  • Pros: Bright screen, text to speech good.
  • Cons: Incompatible with Apple computers! I would NOT have bought it if I knew this! Tech support said I should go to a library and use a Windows machine to update the software...incredible!

"magellan 4000 series not compatible with windows 7"

JIMBUNKUS, CNET
1 December 2009
  • Pros: APPEARANCE
  • Cons: THE 4000 SERIES CANNOT BE USED WITH WINDOWS 7 FOR SOFTWARE AND MAP UPDATES. I WAS TOLD THAT MAGELLAN DOES NOT PLAN TO UPDATE ANDY MORE SOFTWARE FOR THE 4000 SERIES UNITS. MAGELLAN SOFTWARE DOES NOT COMPARE WITH GARMIN.

  • Pros: The Magellan 4200 has a larger screen, bigger key pad, and names all of the streets around me.
  • Cons: It does not tell me how many miles or how long the trip is. It is not semi-trailer friendly. The Magellan 4200 does not re-route when I am off of the route it decides I am suppose to be on!

there are probably better similar products out there

Dr. Kingstone Shih "proroot", Amazon

  • Summary: the price seemed reasonable enough, but some maddening glitches have rendered this item collecting dust on the shelf. will not function when is is being charged, which does not help when you are in the car looking for a route with the battery low. i would look into other models or manufacturers before settling on this one.

Unit works well, newer maps should be included at no charge!

Z. Johnson "musician_from_cal", Amazon
15 September 2008
  • Summary: I've been using my new Magellan 4250 for about 2 weeks. I can't complain about the functionality, I upgraded it to the 4.60 firmware and it seems to be working just fine & functions just as I would expect it to. But I'm really upset that Magellan as a company would sell this as a brand new unit and intentionally NOT include the newest updated maps with the unit!
