IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNINGS
The Magellan Maestro is a vehicle-navigation aid designed to assist you in arriving to your selected destinations. When using
the Magellan Maestro, these safety rules must be followed to prevent accidents that can result in injury or death to yourself
or others:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
California and Minnesota law prohibits mounting any item to your windshield. Please check with your state or local law
enforcement for applicable regulations regarding windshield mounting. Go to www.magellanGPS.com for alternate
mounting solutions. An adhesive disk is supplied with the Magellan Maestro for use as an alternate mounting solution to
the dashboard.
When driving, the need to view the display is minimal. Voice prompts will guide you to your destination. The driver
should enter data or program the Magellan Maestro only when the vehicle is stopped. Only a vehicle passenger should
enter data or program the Magellan Maestro while the vehicle is moving.
It is your responsibility to comply with all traffic laws.
Every attempt is made to ensure that the database is accurate. However, roadways, points of interest (POIs), and
business and service locations may change over time. The database does not include, analyze, process, consider, or
reflect any of the following: legal restrictions (such as vehicular type, weight, height, width, load and speed restrictions);
road slope or grade; bridge height, width, weight, or other limits; population density; neighborhood quality or safety;
availability or proximity of law enforcement, emergency rescue, medical, or other assistance; construction work zones or
hazards; road or lane closures; road, traffic, or traffic facilities’ safety or condition; weather conditions; pavement
characteristics or conditions; special events; traffic congestion. It is your responsibility to disregard any unsafe,
hazardous, or illegal route suggestions.
Keep the Magellan Maestro safe from extreme temperature conditions. For example, do not leave it exposed to direct
sunlight for an extended period of time.
Take care when mounting the Magellan Maestro in your vehicle, whether using the windshield mount or other mount or
accessories, that it does not obstruct the driver's view of the road, interfere with the operation of the vehicle's safety
devices such as air bags, or present a hazard to occupants of the vehicle should the Magellan Maestro be dislodged
while driving. You assume the risks associated with damage to your vehicle or vehicle occupants as the result of your
choices in mounting the Magellan Maestro.
Laws in some states prohibit wearing stereo headphones while operating a motor vehicle. Please contact your state’s
Department of Motor Vehicles for information.
The battery in the Magellan Maestro is rechargeable and should not be removed. In the event it should need to be
replaced, please contact Magellan Technical Support.

Magellan Maestro 4250
The Magellan Maestro 4250 is a vehicle navigation product that utilizes GPS signals from satellites to
calculate your precise location and compute details about its travel. Knowing its position and
movement, it can then overlay this information on detailed maps provided by NAVTEQ® to provide a
visual representation of your location.
With the Magellan Maestro 4250 you can:
•
Store your home address and quickly get routing details to your home.
•
Create and save addresses in your address book that can be accessed at any time and get
routing information to that address.
•
Route to an address that you enter using the keypad and Magellan’s QuickSpell feature for
easy, errorless entry.
•
Route to any point of interest (POI) that has been preloaded into your Magellan Maestro.
•
Route to a POI that appears on the map while traveling simply by tapping on the POI icon.
•
Route to an intersection by selecting the streets.
•
Create a trip with multiple destinations using the trip planner. Handy for business people
who need routing information to many destinations.
•
View POIs that are ahead of you on the freeway. The exit POI function provides you with a
list of gas stations, restaurants, hotels and auto repair shops located nearby exits you are
approaching while traveling on a freeway.
•
Customize your Magellan Maestro to meet your needs using the User Options menu.
•
Use the AAA TourBook® to select a destination and get routing details to travel by. The
AAA TourBook® also includes ratings, discount information for AAA members, hours of
operation, information about the POI and other valuable facts.
•
Access AAA Roadside Assistance for quick and easy access to information about your
location to assist in getting AAA services to your location.
•
Use the voice command and control to operate the Magellan Maestro hands-free.
•
Connect a BlueTooth-enabled cell phone for hands-free phone calls.
The interface for the Magellan Maestro is easy and simple to follow once you understand the basics.
You may never need to refer to this manual but if you do we have tried to present it in a form that you
can access the function you are trying to complete and follow the steps provided.
The Magellan Maestro has a built-in battery so in most cases you will be able to follow these
instructions while reading them on your computer screen without plugging the Maestro to AC power.
You should note that while indoors you may not get any satellite signals so your location information
would not be updated. However, the power of the SiRFstarIII™ chipset installed in the Magellan
Maestro will get satellite signals in some very rough locations so you may notice the Magellan Maestro
computing a position, even indoors.
This document is set up to be printed on 8.5” x 11” (letter) paper should you desire a printed version
for your reference.

Installation Instructions
Installation of the Magellan Maestro is simple and easy. The hardest part will be picking the best
location.
Selecting the Location
A few tips on selecting the proper location.
•
Mount the Magellan Maestro in a place where it can be easily seen and will not interfere
with your view of the road.
•
The Magellan Maestro should be mounted in such a way that the antenna, (located in the
top of the receiver), has an unobstructed view of the sky through the windshield.
•
Select whether it will be mounted using the adjustable mount to the windshield or the
supplied adhesive disk. Be sure to check your local and regional laws before mounting to
the windshield. Some states, like California and Minnesota, have laws restricting the
mounting of any device on the windshield.
•
If planning to use the adhesive disk, a smooth surface on the dash board will need to be
selected. Do not attach the adhesive disk to the windshield.
•
Make sure that the Magellan Maestro or any cabling will not be disturbed in the event that
the airbags are deployed.
Cleaning the Area
Use the alcohol pad that came with the Magellan Maestro to clean the area on the windshield or dash
that has been selected for mounting the Magellan Maestro. Let the area dry completely.
Applying the Adhesive Disk
(Skip if mounting directly to the windshield.) Remove the protective tape from the back of the
adhesive disk. Apply the disk with the adhesive side towards the dash. Maintain pressure on the disk
for 5 minutes to allow it to set in place. Allow the disk 24 hours to cure before continuing.
Attach the Cradle
Align the tabs on the cradle to the indents on
the bottom of the Magellan Maestro. Swivel
the cradle up so that it is flush against the
back of the receiver and snaps into place.
Please note that the mounting bracket supplied with the Magellan Maestro may be different then the one shown in this
document.
Installation
3
Adjustable Mount
Line up the two tabs on the adjustable mount
with the holes on the back of the Magellan
Maestro. Once the adjustable mount is flush
with the Magellan Maestro, push the receiver
down until it locks in place with the adjustable
mount.
Secure the Mount to the Windshield or Adhesive Disk
Make sure that the lever at the base of the adjustable mount is in the up position. Place the base of
the mount firmly over the area of the windshield to be used or the adhesive disk. Push the lever at
the base of the mount all the way down until it snaps in place. Carefully let go of the assembly,
making sure that it is securely mounted.
Adjust the Mount for Optimum Viewing
Loosen the adjustment locking knobs and position the Magellan Maestro for optimum viewing. Once
set, tighten the locking knobs. (Never attempt to adjust the mount while driving.)
Connecting Power and FM Antenna
Plug the end of the vehicle power adapter into a
12 VDC vehicle power receptacle in the vehicle.
Connect the other end to the Magellan Maestro’s
USB connector as shown. If there is power at the
receptacle, the Magellan Maestro will power on.
(Note: some vehicles apply power to the vehicle
power receptacle only when the ignition is on.)
Connect the FM Traffic Antenna connector (from
the vehicle power adapter into the FM antenna
recepticle.
Security
It is recommended that the Magellan Maestro is not left in plain view while unattended for reasons of
theft.

Notes on Entering Data
If you are having trouble getting the results you expected here are a few useful tips.
•
Make sure that you have spelled the name correctly. If you are unsure of the spelling, just
enter a few characters and tap “OK”. A long list of names will be displayed but you can
step through the list and probably be able to find the correct spelling.
•
Check for apostrophes and hyphens. If you are not seeing the POI you are looking for in
the POI list, check to see if the name has an apostrophe or hyphen.
•
When entering a street name you can use the street prefix (N. E. W. S. etc.) to narrow the
search. For example to find N. Main St. you could enter “N. Main” or “N Main”.
•
The more characters you enter, the smaller the list of possible options from which to
choose.

Voice Control
The Magellan Maestro includes voice control software for many of the most commonly used
commands. This provides hands-free operation of the Magellan Maestro for most of the functions you
will use on a daily basis.
Activating Voice Control
To place the Magellan Maestro in a ‘listening’ mode for voice commands, you need to first ‘wake up’
the voice control software by speaking the attention word “Magellan”. Upon waking up the Magellan
Maestro, the Say a Command screen is displayed. This is a list of available commands that can be
used for reference. The command you want to use does not need to be displayed, this list is for easy
reference only.
1.
Speak “Magellan”.
2.
Speak the command.
Speaking “Previous” or “Next” scrolls the
list up and down.
After speaking the command, additional
screens may be displayed that also can be
voice controlled.
Command List
Sample Nearest Restaurant
1.
Speak “Magellan”.
2.
Speak “Nearest Restaurant”.
Voice Control

3.
Speak “Chinese Food”.
Speak the number of the item in the list to
select it. Speak “Previous” or “Next” to
scroll up and down the list of items.
Say the number of the restaurant you want
to go to and the Magellan Maestro will
begin calculating the route to the chosen
destination.
Say a Command’ Choices
The followning is a list of common commands that
can be spoken after saying the wake up word
“Magellan.”
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•

•
“Roadside Assistance”
“Where am I?” or “Current Location”
“Go Home”
“Nearest Restaurant”
“Nearest Gas”
“Nearest ATM”
“Nearest Bank”
“Nearest Coffee”
“Reroute”
“Distance to Destination”
Restaurants have a shortcut that will skip the cusine screen shown in the sample. Instead of saying
“Nearest Restaurant”, say “Nearest Chinese Restaurant”.
Tips on Speaking Voice Commands
No response to commands - If the navigation unit is not responding to your commands, first try
relocating the Magellan Maestro so the microphone is closer and/or pointed towards you. Remember
to speak in a normal, natural voice. Wind noise and talk radio stations can “confuse” the voice
recognition software, so turn off the radio and roll up your windows.
Voice Control
•
Avoid speaking too soon. The most common speech recognition problem people have is
answering a question before the navigator has stopped speaking. The speech input circuits
are inactive while the navigator is outputting speech. To avoid this problem, wait for at
least one half second before answering a navigator question.
•
Turn down the radio, especially when listening to talk radio stations.
•
Avoid speaking a command while others are talking.
•
Avoid fans blowing across the microphone. This problem occurs very often in summer
when the air conditioning is turned up high. Turn down the fan or reposition the Magellan
Maestro.
•
Roll up the window if road noise is too high. In some cars, the interior noise increases
dramatically with car speed. The best thing to do with noisy cars is to close the windows.
Positioning the Magellan Maestro closer to you can also help.
•
Avoid shouting. Shouting puts stress into the voice which actually degrades speech
recognition performance. If the navigator is not hearingyou, try moving the Magellan
Maestro closer and lowering your voice.

Understanding How The TrafficKit Works
Please read the following statements before using the TrafficKit.
1.
You can enable and disable Traffic event categories. By default, all categories are enabled.
2.
Selected Traffic events will either alert and/or re-route you depending on the operating
mode.

If you are not routing to a destination, the RDS function will only display Traffic events on
the map screen.
RDS-Traffic Operating Modes
Traffic events that impact your route can be processed in one of the following two modes:
Re-routing Mode. (Default) Traffic events affecting your route will trigger the receiver to automatically
calculate a new route, if a faster alternative route is available.
Alert Mode. Traffic events affecting your route will be reported to you in the form of warning
messages.

whenever a Traffic event arises on your current
route. This will happen at the time the event is
received, regardless of your distance to the
event.
Dist. to event < 40 mi: With this option checked, the receiver will re-route you only if the
distance to this Traffic event, is less than 40 miles from your current location (not a pointto-point distance but that measured along the route).
Dist. to event < 20 miles: Same as above for a distance of 20 miles.
Dist. to event < 10 miles: Same as above for a distance of 10 miles.
Select Save to confirm your choice and then Save again to return to your guidance screen.

Traveling with the Re-routing Mode On
The following will occur whenever a Traffic event that affects your route is received:
•
The receiver will analyze the impact this event will have on your route.
•
A “Re-calculating the route” message will pop up on the screen along with the reason for
the re-calculation.
•
Once the alternate route has been computed, it will compare the alternative route with the
original route, and will decide which is the best route to follow, taking time and distance
into consideration.
•
If the original route is still the best one to follow, the route will be unchanged, and the
time portion of the status bar will be updated to reflect the delay. The traffic icon will
appear in the lower right corner of the map display. Tapping this icon brings up a list of
the traffic events on the route.
•
If the alternative route is the best route to follow, the receiver will start guiding you along
this route.
•
The map screen will also show road signs corresponding to Traffic events, including those
not affecting the route.
•
Events that affect your route will also appear as road signs in the maneuver list.

FAQs
Q1- How does the TrafficKit module choose the frequency on which to receive Traffic data?
A1: This is an automated procedure. When you turn on the system, the TrafficKit module analyzes the
5 best frequencies stored in its memory. These frequencies are classified in order of signal strength.
The module then tests if Traffic data is available on the first station. If the first station is sending
Traffic messages, the module will stay on that frequency, otherwise it will test the next one until it
finds a station that delivers Traffic data.
If none of the 5 frequencies can be used, the TrafficKit module will start scanning the entire FM
band. It will search for the best five frequencies on which Traffic data is available and will tune in to
the strongest station. These five best frequencies will be saved in memory to be used the next time
the system is powered up.
Q2- Why do we have to wait between 2 and 5 minutes before the RDS module starts delivering RDS
data?
A2: This is the average time for the module to test all the possible frequencies on the FM band and
choose the best one in terms of signal level and Traffic data availability/quality.
