Re: "NO POS"

Have you gone through the "Initialize" process again? If the memory has been cleared you will need to re-initialize. Refer to page 4 of your manual. Power On > Select Language > "ENTER" > INITIALIZE screen > "ENTER" > Select Region > "ENTER" > Select Area > "ENTER" > Enter Elevation > "ENTER" (if you don't know elevation, press enter) > Enter Time > "ENTER" > Enter Date > "ENTER"

MAGELLAN GPS 315, LCD Not filling out completely

I just got my GPS 315 open, thought it may have zebra connectors.
You will break the wires from the data connector in opening this beast. There is a photo on this site showing the wiring.
It is a wired panel the connections to the LCD uses some super adhesive that gives way after a time. It appears unrepairable.
I have two early 7 inch LCD TVs with the same problem.
There is NO markings as to part number or manufacture so the panel
will be unavailable. So I would suggest to use it as is or use it with an early laptop with a serial com port.

Magellan 310

I Experienced the same problem the last two weeks. I read your suggestion about the right key/power button. The GPS asked me wheter I wanted to clear the memory yes or no. After "yes" i had to reenter my country and date/time. After doing this it took gps310 more than an hour to get its first fix. But it works again.

Satalite Signal?

Have you tried resetting the unit? Have you done a master reset? If not, try these. Just be aware, a Master Reset will ERASE ALL YOUR FAVORITES.

Magellan 700 GPS wont find sattlites

I just got off the phone with India (Tech Service). I sent my Roadmate 700 for service in October. When it did not come back, I called 4x and had to prove I sent it in with a copy of the tracking number from UPS. It has taken 2 mos to resolve, but they are sending me a Maestro 4250, free shipping for $300.00. Their first offer was for a free 3100. I was told the Roadmate 700 series is discontinued.
