No signal


you have to be outside or in a non steel covered building to get a good signal, i have found on my tomtom that sometimes it would scan for sats for 2 mins and nothing, then i would shut it off and restart and then aquire the sats, there is a time in spring and fall when the sun interfers with the sat signal and you wont get anything for 30 mins

Sat nav just stopped working today in perth wa, not picking up any sat signal. any way to fix this? is it my sat nav or the sats?


It isn't the sats. They're fine.

Try resetting the unit. Use a paper clip to press the button in a small hole on the bottom.

Try to reset the sats. To do this:

Tap the satellite bars in the lower right-hand corner.

Then, on the next screen, tap the satellite bars in the right-hand margin.

On the next screen, select "Configure." Choose a different configuration. Tap "Done," then "Done" again on the next screen.

Did that help?

Magellan wont get signal?


charge the battery fully, then set it outside in clear view of the open sky. it may take as much as 30 minutes to acquire the sats if that fails, try and leave it out longer...does it appear to try and link to ANY sats. on the map screen in the top righ t corner is a icon with bars in it, tap that and you should see it trying to acquire sats. if not, you might have other problems
