Magellan Maestro 4250

 

The number of portable navigation systems coming out these days is pretty astonishing, but the thing is, we're finding that when it comes to the core navigation functions, they pretty much all offer the same thing--text- and voice-guided directions,...

The Magellan Maestro 4250 allows you to operate the portable navigation system with voice commands. It also features text-to-speech functionality, integrated Bluetooth, and traffic capabilities. The system provided accurate directions.

The Maestro 4250's points-of-interest database is a bit outdated, and we encountered some general performance delays and glitches. Voice control does not include address entry. The system does not automatically synchronize your cell phone's address...

Despite some minor shortcomings, the Magellan Maestro 4250 is a solid and accurate mid-level portable navigation system with a helpful voice-command feature.

Magellan Maestro 4250

 

The superslim Maestro 4250 boasts plenty of slick features yet doesn't cost a fortune.

SiRFstarIII receiver. Case is the thinnest available. Large screen. Multisegment routing. Integrated traffic receiver. AAA TourBook and roadside assistance location

Bluetooth phone interface could be better. No auto-zoom or auto-volume. Can't control all functions with voice commands

The new, slimmer Magellan Maestro 4250 offers all the features of its predecessor, the 4050, at an even more attractive price.

Consumer review by:

"Nice unit but freezes once in awhile and can't say "3""

 

The only problems I have been having with it ... 

Nice traffic reports. Nice size. Good display of maps and highway exits

Can't say the number 3 or any number with a 3 in it such as 39. Instead, it will say 59. Substituting a 5 for 3 at all times. Luckily, I usually know my way around so I do not get confused
