Updating magellan maestro 4250
Along the left side of the Maestro is the power button, MMC/SD card slot, USB connector, and a hard reset switch. Along the right side is the headphone jack and the power connector.
These devices come with a 4.3 inch widescreen display.The Magellan Maestro 4000 is the entry level device of the new Maestro series from Magellan.The Maestro series is quite a bit different than the devices in the Road Mate series.The new Maestros feature a widescreen, a slim form factor, and have a completely redesigned user interface.We’ve spent some quality time on the road with the Maestro 400, and here is what we think.The display is not the brightest display we’ve ever seen, but it is a fairly decent quality screen.
It doesn’t have an exceptionally wide acceptable viewing angle, so you might have a little bit of trouble with washed out colors if the device isn’t facing you straight on.
To accommodate the widescreen, the Maestro is 5 inches wide, slightly wider than other devices with a similar screen size.
For example the Harman Kardon GPS-500 has the same size screen yet is one-half inch narrower than the Maestro.
Therefore despite being only .8″ thick, this probably isn’t a device you will want to throw into your pocket for very long. Along the left side of the Maestro is the power button, MMC/SD card slot, USB connector, and a hard reset switch. Along the right side is the headphone jack and the power connector.
There is an internal battery which should last about three hours.
The suction cup mount is okay, but by no means great.
