Unique features, good performance, some quirks

Geoff, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this Magellan 4250 GPS about a year ago for $299, so the price today seems to be a real bargain. There were some initial problems with the software which were fixed by a free update. A more recent update further improved routing calculation time and on screen graphics.

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...

  • 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...

Good Product

Reviewer23, Amazon
9 January 2008
  • Summary: I did an endless amount of research regarding GPS products. I read the reviews on all the websites and tested the products in the stores. The Magellan 4250 won me over with price and features. I was primarily looking for a GPS device to reduce my travel time to work.

Very nice unit overall, especially for the price

Eric Sherer, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had the 4250 for a few days and overall I'm very happy with it. I was a bit worried about the power switch problem everybody seemed to be having but I have turned the unit on and off through quite a few cycles and have really not had this issue.

A solid choice, but not without flaws

Crocuta, Amazon
26 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought the Magellan 4250 from Amazon for $357. I have previously owned a Magellan Roadmate 760, an HP rx5915 Travel Companion (TomTom) and three Garmin handhelds, one of which I have also used for auto navigation overseas (a Garmin GPSMap 60CSx).
