Magellan continued its pattern of “please just get me there accurately” with the widescreen Maestro 4250.

The 4250 has a 4.5″ screen and the same hyper-accurate maps we’ve come to give Magellan credit for.

What it doesn’t have is any serious bloatware. It does have 6 million points of interest and on board traffic updates, but don’t expect to watch movies and replace your iPod with this car GPS. This one is meant to get you where you have to go and maybe offer some advice on where to eat.

This model does offer a few more of the price tag-raising features like voice command and Bluetooth for your cell phone.

The 4250 also pronounces directions and street names, which is a vital feature on any GPS.

Overall, you can find this product for about $200 online, and it’s a great balance of value and features.
