I was reluctant to do the download as I had a trip to California coming up which is why I bought the device in the first place.I was worried the upgrade would somehow cause problems with the device.For one, it seems not to contain any support for autorun; I checked strings on all executables from the system and none of them contained any likely clues. Consequently, only the "SD-free" (internal flash installation) works.Luckily, Miopocket 4 will fit into the device with nothing removed.As I now own a Magellan Maestro 4050, which unlike my 4250 has bluetooth and a headphone jack, I decided to upgrade the software.
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.
This was likely the best design decision Microsoft could have made, because Win CE 4 was an unreliable pile of debris that would corrupt its own installation at the slightest opportunity.
One of the things I've often wanted to do was to put a media player on my GPS.
However, the traffic kit (free 1 month subscription) would not work.
I was told by tech support via e mail response that I needed to update the software on my brand new device.
