Question about Magellan Triton 1500 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Triton 1500 GPS, I can't get any green bars to receive position.

I can't get any green bars to receive my satellite position.
Every time I touch the base map I get the Philippines.
The date on the info screens shows as 4/14/2006 even when I change it to the current date, next time I check it's 2006 again.
The 1500 is supposed to have a base map of North America. Even when and if I can access it, I'm in the Philippines again.
I'm hoping that once I recieve a satellite signal allot of this will change to my position and date.
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks, Darrell

    I have spent two freaking hours trying to solve this problem myself! I HATE IT WHEN IT WON'T WORK! PLUS, why on earth does it not say in the manual HOW the thing connects to the satellite, I find nothing in 63 pages about it connecting! It is just ridiculous! It should say, "TURN ON UNIT, STAND OUTSIDE (or wherever!), and within 15 minutes you will be connected. If NOT, do such and such!"

You may have a few problems. First the GPS signal is controlled by a special GPS+ANT card in the 1500 and it may be defective. As for dates, etc. this could be caused by an other firmware update or a bad software file. Go to the Jungle Ghost Repair Center at they have parts for the Triton units.

My garmin gose not move when we move

it hasnt linked to the satellites yet...make sure its fully charged, then slide the switch to the off position for 15 seconds, then power it back on and take the unit outside in clear view of the open sky and wait until the satellites lock on.

you can tell when the satellites are linked by the bar at the top in the main menu need atleast 3 green bars for it to aquire your position.
