I was hesitant to purchase a refurbished GPS unit, but the price was too good to pass up. It arrived yesterday and everything appears to be operational and the directions have so far been very accurate, including the location of my house that other GPS units indicate is at the other end of the street, but the 4250 showed my house exactly where it should be. The unit came with just about all the accessories you need AC power, DC power, USB cable, window mount, soft carrying case, CD for computer and PDF manual, etc. The only negative is that according to Magellan Support the unit does not qualify for the 3-month free subscription to Traffic Alerts. The box and paperwork included with the GPS unit indicate that a 3-month free subscription to the service is included, but the paperwork did not include the necessary 20-digit subscription activation code. I contacted Magellan Support, and they were very courteous, but they said the GPS unit I had did not qualify and apparently the Free Traffic service had already been used prior to the unit being refurbished.

I am no GPS afficionado. It did what it did to my satisfaction. There are many features I hadn't even bothered to try out. What i don't like is the fact that if anything happens to any Magellan unit outside the warranty, the ONLY option is to buy a replacement unit. There is ZERO support, and we are each only a heartbeat away from a software glitch. I mean if you hold the power switch too long; or, if you upgrade the firmware; or, God forbid, you toss it in your glove box while the moon is full, you might wind up with a very nice, shiny, hi-tec paperweight. I have one now. Very nice indeed.

Unreliable device, awkward mounting

by Lou on 5/28/2009

Initially the unit seemed to work fine out of the box. I tried some local trips but it did not yield the best or shortest route. It did better on longer trips. The voice commands did not work very well-even when the car was stopped and radio off. The adjustable mount is steady but very bulky and not easy to use. The cables attach to the unit at an awkward place and angle. The maps shift in a jerky fashion as you travel. After about 3 weeks the unit froze up and could not be reset. It has been sent back. Perhaps this is why they have so many "refurbished" unit to sell!
