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.

SOURCE: Magellan GPS Pioneer will not hold onto satellite signal

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.

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.

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
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
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.

My Magellan Triton 500 does not display the correct date or time. Can you help?

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 they have parts for the Triton units.

Turn on the power while holding the right arrow. This resets the unit. You will then have to reset the time, date, and location.

Does not reset location

I too have sometimes to wait for 20 mins before my Roadmate picks up all the satellites it needs. The problem is worse if I'm surrounded by buildings.

I have at last decided to bin the Magellan as it's been nothing but trouble and Magellan Support just don't seem to care to respond.

Am now getting a Tomtom Go series with all preloaded, maps/ traffic/ cameras - it auto updates each time it's put on its cradle attached to PC/internet.
