Question about Magellan RoadMate 800 GPS Receiver
On startup quits receiving satellites, then later starts working again in unobstructed view area's. Or, you can be driving along long wide open area's and it just quits and starts looking for satellites again. Never done this before. After reboots it might start working again, not all the time that works.
There are various reasons this could be happening. To start eliminating the main causes, go to the Magellan site and create a profile for yourself. You will then be able to download the latest firmware update and the newest maps. This will fix connectivity issues and at the same time give you the latest and greatest of what your device has to offer.Also, if your windshield has the blueish.silver covering over it from the factory, this can inhibit GPS Signal from penetrating the windshield and reaching the antenna. You could purchase an external mount antenna which will extend and amplify the signal .
