Best Value

Thomas P. Mueller, Amazon
5 April 2009
  • Summary: I purchased one of these devices due to the amount of travel I do for work. I only compared the Magellan 4250 and 4350. I stayed with Magellan since I was use to them in Hertz cars. I went with the 4250 since it supported voice commands. The 4350 dropped VC. Go figure.

Tough decision

Jane Doe, Amazon
11 December 2008
  • Summary: While researching GPS units I couldn't decide between the Maestro 4250 or the Garmin nuvi 760 so I bought both so I could do a side-by-side comparison and return whichever fell short. It wasn't an easy decision and Santa had to ultimately make the choice for me.

Pretty cool GPS but still gonna return it...

arthurbou, shopping.com
15 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Well, I bought this from Costco for 300$ for a road trip from Ottawa Ontario to Baltimore MD. It worked quite well most of the time and the voice recognition was better than expected. Routing and rerouting was done reasonably fast and the signal was good most of the time.
  • Pros: Great GUI, when it works, it works great.
  • Cons: Has some software bugs that need addressing. I'll try a TomTom next...

Great Bargain GPS

S. Magee, Amazon
7 April 2008
  • Summary: The Magellan Maestro GPS is very easy and intuitive to use to get directions. The menu is simple enough and the screen is not cluttered at all, giving you easy access to view the map and/or select whatever functions you need.

A reasonable price to pay for better features than previous models.

R. Ocampo "Artisan", Amazon
26 March 2008
  • Summary: Considering my experience with an early Magellan GPS unit, I decided to wait until they sorted out the kinks, increased functionality and lowered the price. I've purchased a Magellan GPS unit awhile back costing USD999.99 and I couldn't take the painfully slow response and long lag.

Good GPS and good customer service with some minor flaws

a book reader, Amazon
25 January 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this GPS in early December 2007. It was attractive and quite sturdy. Everything seemed to work as promised until about a month later in mid January 2008 when one day the blue tooth phone menu refused to display.

Extremely Good Unit

Ruthie, Amazon
7 January 2008
  • Summary: I have been using the 4250 for about a week now and the unit has preformed almost all of it's critical functions flawlessly. 1) Very quick satelite aquisition time - just under 1 min 30 sec for TTFF while inside my house (works in my basement). Less than 10 sec from warm start outside.
