SOURCE: Problem with Magellan GPS 315
I own Two Magellan 315. They both have failed in exactly the same way as yours, will not lock on too a satillite. I have concluded that this is their design life and that is the end. I did post one to the Magillan repair centre in France but that disappeared. I have replaced the two of them from EBay and will see how I get on with those

FYI ....My Roadmate 760 would not aquire a signal, I went to diagnostic screen and found it was detecting/tracking 0/0 satellites. Held the plugged in unit out the window and within 10 seconds was tracking 7 satellites! Turned out my 1999 Olds Silhouette Van has a anti-glare filter inside the factory windshield that blocks GPS signals.My wifes 2001 Chevy Impala also has same type filter. Check your windshield, filter is visible inside glass to within about three inches of edges of glass. Worth a look.

make sure the
battery is charged up good, then take it outside and turn it on and
leave it in clear view of the open sky for up to 30 minutes to acquire
the satellites especially if its been reset.
if that fails, reset the unit...turn it on, then locate the reset button on the left side bottom of the gps and use a paper clip to depress the reset switch...it should restart on its own..take it back outside and let it in clear view of the open sky for up to 30 minutes.
if that fails..go HERE and get the update and follow the instructions..you will have to sign on to the Magellan site before you can download anything.
if you need more help, just post back
