SOURCE: My 700 has no GPS

I fixed this problem by opening the options menu, selecting the diagnostics button, then the initialize button. The gps began to look for satellites again and after several minutes began working as normal.

SOURCE: Unit will not acquire the satellite signs

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.

I also have a Magellan Triton 300 and I can not change it to my time zone.. how can I change it?


From the user manual at http://www.magellangps.com/assets/manuals/MagellanTriton_300_400_500_UserManual.pdf
it says:
Setting the Time Zone
The time and date information will be computed from information from the GPS satellites so there is
no requirement for you to input any time or date information. However, to make the time accurate
for your location you must select the correct time zone.
1. From the Map screen press MENU.
2. Select View.
3. Select Settings.
4. Scroll down and select Date & Time.
5. Select the Time Zone field.
Press button
momentarily

6. From the drop-down menu, select your current time zone. (Time zones are not changed
automatically when travelling. If you travel to an area with a different time zone, you will
need to change it here for accurate time information.)
7. Repeat the process for the Daylight Savings field.
8. Press ESC when done.

Assuming that you have the latest firmware installed. Do a MENU>>VIEW>>SETTINGS and then using the down arrow to scroll down. The Date and time and language and power settings are out of sight. scrool down and you will see date and time.

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


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 www.jungleghost.com they have parts for the Triton units.
