Magellan Maestro 4250 review: 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The Maestro 4250's points-of-interest database is a bit outdated, and we encountered some general performance delays and glitches.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.

Magellan Maestro 4250 With Voice Command

 

Voice command and control feature., Automatic split-screen turn preview., Competitive price for high-end features, and traffic receiver included.

Voice command limited. Can't voice in address, for example., Windshield mount bracket somewhat bulky, but sturdy., Must plug in or remove cables to mount or stow unit. No quick-mount contacts.

Secretly, we all like to give orders, don't we? The Magellan Maestro 4250 accepts your spoken commands without a complaint. Summon it to life by saying "Magellan" and then order it to take you to the nearest coffee shop. Done. Beyond its cool voice...
