Question about Magellan GPS Devices
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.

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 had the same problem. Found this link
As suggested at the end of the above thread I left my unit outside for a couple of hours and it suddenly sprang into life. Now it reliably gets a fix in 2 to 3 minutes when I switch it on.
My theory is that because it is only a 2 channel unit it takes hours to acquire a fix when the memory is blank.
The manual says it will keep it's memory for a month without batteries.
So if you leave the batteries out for more than a month, or move it more than 250 miles and then switch it on expect it to take a while to first fix.
Otherwise it's a nice little unit.
