Sometimes it's better than nothing, sometimes is the same as having nothing

doritopacker, Ebay
2 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this because when I went to "prepaid" I lost the use of "My Navigator" on my cell phone service. It's an "ok" device as in "better than nothing" but I'm not 100% impressed with it. We went to Wisconsin Dells and tried to use it for directions to a Water Park. We only had the name of the place but not the physical address. Without the physical address, this device was worthless. We ended up googling the place and using their posted directions.

Magellan Maestro 4250 design defects

WWT "Wolf", Amazon
7 September 2009
  • Summary: About 1 1/2 years ago I bought a Magellan Maestro 4250. I used it occasionally and was satisfied with it's performance. One day, about 2 month after the 1 year warranty expired, I turned the unit on. Simply depressing the tab, that activates the on/off switch, caused a failure of the unit, that is, I could no longer turn it on or off. The unit was not dropped or bumped in any way nor was any other physical force brought upon it.

  • Pros: Voice prompts announce the street names. Voice Command controls searches for POIs.Bigger size screen.
  • Cons: Bluetooth function doesn't work really well. Difficult to hear calls and difficult for them to hear you. Not great customer service. Maps aren't updated very frequently. Expensive map updates to purchase when available.

Magellan Maestro 4250

jwr1953, Ebay
6 April 2009
  • Summary: It is a nice unit for the money. Not as good as my Lowrance but will do the job at 1/3d the money. Sometimes the GPS takes you all around to get where you want to go. I thought the voice function would allow you to speak the address but you still have to enter it. The blue tooth function sometimes does not hang up right away. But if you use it as a GPS only it will work. Oh one more negative the sound is a bit low.

worked great when it worked...

  • Summary: The unit was easy to operate as advertised, however, after just a few weeks, it froze up and sometimes would not get any satellite signals. This was not convenient when I was far away from home! I sent it back for a replacement, so let's hope the second one is more reliable than the first.

Magellan 4250

Donna L. Hanna "maggie", Amazon
30 October 2008
  • Summary: I actually love the my Magellan 3250. This Magellan 4250 was a gift for my daughter for her birthday. We used it for a roadtrip one Saturday and found that the maps are very outdated. I first emailed Magellan about the problem and got no satisfaction. Then I called them and was told to fax my receipt and they would send me a disk with updated maps, which I did. After a week I didn't hear anything, so I called again and was then told to email my receipt, which I did.

"Needs more flexability on choosing screen colors"

jdoumak, CNET
23 September 2008
  • Pros: Good, acurate in getting you to destination. Easy operation and navigation through menus.
  • Cons: Sometimes it takes you out of the way to get to your destination. It sometimes takes me off the freeway and enter it again at the next on-ramp. And the traffic feature is useless. It will show me in traffic when there is no traffic & visa versa.
