Pros Easy to Use
Cons Short Battery Life, Inaccurate
Recommended it? No

We have had this product for a little while now.  It does a decent job finding places, but constantly takes it's sweet time locating where we are upon booting up! Read full review »

Pros looks nice...good size screen
Cons breaks quickly, unreliable,

I am NOT happy with the Magellan Maestro 4250.
I had it for less than 4 months when the screen went black.  I could hear the voice & I could touch the screen to interact with it, but I couldn't see anything!

I called Magellan customer service, only to hold for over 45 Read full review »

Pros Voice control, Bluetooth
Cons Poor on-screen sensitivity
Recommended it? Yes

A friend of mine, eager to show off his new toy, recently gave me a few days with his new Magellan Maestro 4250. As I have said before, most of these GPS units come with the same standard features and it is really the presentation of those features and the usability of those features that...

I got this GPS for my hubby for his birthday and he was so thrilled.  I got it on Amazon for a great deal after doing a lot of research.  This model has a very nice large screen and a load of awesome features.  We have so far used the regular POI (points of interest) function to find various...

Pros nice display and easy to follow directions.
Cons Bluetooth and VR might as well not be included,customer<br>service is a joke.
Recommended it? No

The unit looks great but it does not work as well as it looks.
The Bluetooth is terrible, garbled and not able to be understood.
The maps are older but not too outdated,the voice recognition
is very basic and not of much use,it has a habit of freezing up and
then has to be reset which... Read full review »

Cons Shortest route can make for strange routes.

I have wanted to buy a GPS for some time now, but how do you know what to purchase?  I started out shopping for a Garmon, but purchased the Magellan Maestro 4250 after comparing features and reading product reviews.

Nice unit but comes with old maps

bymdktm Oct 2, 2008
2 Helpfuls 3 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Easy to use, lots of features
Cons Old maps pre-loaded
Recommended it? Yes

The unit itself if nice, but then I noticed it comes with 2007 maps and newer 2008/2009 maps are available. I called and will be getting the new maps "free" but still have to pay $10 shipping. That is much less than the $80 the maps would cost, but I would think a new GPS with come with new maps or... Read full review »

Pros Lots of nice feature for the price Screen quality Voice recognition
Cons Must plug power on the side to power it Can't rotate head of holding support
Recommended it? Yes

I bought this GPS just before going on a 3500 km trip around the Gaspesia region in the Province of Quebec in Canada. Had no time to study all the features but it was very easy to learn. I was already familiar with a Garmin Nuvi before.

One of the thing I liked about it was the voice... Read full review »

THIS COMPANY IS NOT ONE YOU WANT TO BUY FROM OR DEAL WITH! I bought a brand new gps online, and after I received it, it malfunctioned on the 2nd day of having it! It was stuck on a settings screen—unable to be used. I tried to reset it, but it was evident that my new unit was defective when I got... Read full review »

Pros Great GUI, when it works, it works great.

Recommended it? No

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. I must say the user... Read full review »
