Magellan Maestro 4050

PC Magazine
15 September 2007
  • Conclusion: Magellan's top-of-the-line GPS, the widescreen Maestro 4050, adds voice recognition and live traffic reports to the already solid Maestro 4040. But you can't control the device's every action with vocal commands alone, and its Bluetooth-connection skills need work.
  • Pros: 4.3-inch screen. Improved user interface. AAA TourBook and roadside assistance location. Sensitive SiRFstarIII receiver. Multisegment routing. Voice recognition provided for many functions. Traffic-report receiver integrated into mounting bracket.
  • Cons: Bluetooth phone interface failed to read our test phone's contact list and didn't automatically reconnect. No auto-zoom or auto-volume. Can't control all functions with voice commands.
