Summary: I purchased the 4250 in 2007, I operated an AC service truck. During the summer I would still be running calls after dark. The GPS allowed me to locate customer home a lot easier. The only down fall I have is Magellan did not and still does not offer the life time map updates for the Maestro line if...
Summary: This is the 4th Magellan GPS I bought in last 4 years and my whole family now have a Magellan in each of our four cars. My first GPS was a Magellan 3100 and I kind of fell in love with this brand for its user friendliness. Model 4250 is unique in many respects.
Summary: I purchased a refurbished Megellan Maestro gps for my wife and she loves it so far. I prefer my Megellan 1440 because of the highway sign lane assist. This one just tells you what side the exit is on with an arrow.
Summary: I came across the first one of these I gave as a gift really cheap, so I checked into it. (I was previously spoiled with a waterproof Garmin). I like the large screen, and this is really the thinnest GPS I am aware of at the time of this review. It has a single button for POWER, that is it.
Summary: Part of why I selected this model is to get the blue tooth for my cell phone. I found (like many blue tooth units) that it picks up so much road noise at highway speed it is worthless. The GPS capability of this unit is terrific.
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.
Summary: The Magellan GPS #4250 was purchased primarily for use in the SF Bay Area. We attend many estate sales in many cities surrounding the Bay Area and found when one of us went alone, it was hard to read a map/remember directions obtained either from a map book or an internet search.
Summary: Nice system once it works - first unit was DOA and returned to seller. 2nd unit worked straight from box. I do not know whether this is inidcative or just bad luck on my part. This is our first GPS. The 4250 is simple to set up - screen is clear and easy to read.
