While almost all GPS devices offer similar features such as traffic navigation, routes and points of interest, not many actually make it an easy process. The Magellan Maestro 4200 4.3 inch GPS Navigator manages to do just this while offering a few tricks not available in GPS devices of the same class.
Design: Measuring in with a width of 4.9 inches, a depth of 0.7 inches and a height of 3.3 inches the Magellan Maestro 4200 is about the standard size and shape as any other 4.3 inch screen GPS navigator. The GPS does have a slightly wider bezel than most other GPS but the design is simple. Weighing in at 6.7 ounces the GPS is slightly heavier. However, its 4.3-inch wide-screen touch-screen display offers a resolution of 480×272 and comes complete with display illumination and anti-glare features so it is crystal clear anytime of the day.
Specifications: Featuring a built-in antenna, the Magellan Maestro 4200 also connects via hi-speed USB. The GPS offers voice navigation instructions with GPS functions for Distance and Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA). Featuring an integrated Lithium Ion battery, the GPS has an estimated battery life of 4 hours on a single charge. The GPS comes bundled with a USB cable, a soft-carry pouch, a car power adapter and an automotive windshield mount. Installation is easy to do and fits in most vehicles.
Features & Performance: The Magellan Maestro 4200 GPS comes pre-installed with various POIs as well as maps. With the ability to display maps and routes in 2D and 3D the GPS includes NAVTEQ ON BOARD software for more functionality. The interface is very easy to use with multi-orientation settings and pre-installed indicators.
Once the GPS has been set on track, it offers voice instructions that are quite audible. Other features include the built-in trip computer. This gives users a number of routing features including Back-on-Track which gets you back to your route once you’ve made a wrong turn, avoid toll roads if you’re a bit low on cash, fast/short routes if you are in a hurry, and a couple more options.
All in all, the Magellan Maestro 4200 offers users plenty of interesting features to go with an easy to use interface. Those looking for a bit more routing functions will find the GPS well suited for them.
