Gog 2816 satellite reciever, cant tune as i dont know the password. how can i reset it?


Instructions
    • 1 Check the TV and make sure the channel is set to 3 or 4 for the primary TV set, or channel 60 for the UHF (secondary) set, if the receiver is a "dual-mode" device.
    • 2 Check all connections on the back of the receiver. Make sure all cabled connections are tightened and all plugs are securely plugged in.
    • 3 Check for a key card loaded in the card slot on the receiver. If you have a key card, slowly and carefully remove the key card. Leave the card out for at least 30 seconds, and then re-insert the card.
    • 4 Unplug the main power cord from the back of the receiver. Wait at least 30 seconds and then plug the power cord back into the receiver.
    • 5 Press the "Power" button on the front of the receiver to power on the device. Allow the receiver several minutes to acquire a signal and download any additional updates. The receiver is reset.

I have a Magellan 315 gps that is appoximately 10 yrs. old. Does it have an internal battery that needs to be replaced?


Not a fix, shared information.

Yes these units have an internal ten year lithium battery. I am currently researching this issue, as I have two dead and one working 300series GPSs. When the internal battery dies and the regular batteries are removed or die the unit will loose all user data (way points and routes), as well as the satellite map and initialization. After dieing the unit will appear to function normally but fail to lock on, track or get a fix. Only showing the coordinates from the initialization. These units also have an internal capacitor that provides sufficient power to hold the memory during quick battery changes, but not over night. I have as yet found a working solution, but only researching this for a few days.

I have a Maxx Digital explorer GPS .It keeps reading "unable to locate Satalite".Any Idea's?


You should be able to set it to track more than one satellite, my garmon can track up to 20 at a time, and it's over 5 years old. Go into your satellite settings and see how many satellites you are currently tracking. Also if you are having extremely over cast conditions this coud happen, but should clear up, eventually. Try setting it to track the maximum number of satellites and see if this resolves your problem.

GPSmap 296 doesn't show any satellite signal


Check that the date shown on the unit is correct. If not, choose autolocate and allow about 10 minutes for the unit to find satellites. If this works, then the internal lithium ion battery is defective.
