The only thing you need to do (maybe) is to update the maps. make sure its maps cover the region where you will be traveling, otherwise it won't be of any help. Since roads do change over the years it is possible that your map may be inaccurate somewhere. If you are unlucky to find yourself in such an area, an old-fashioned road atlas or an area map might come in handy.

When was the last time you went into the your settings and update your software or configured the unit? On cloudy days you can't do this. On a bright sunny day go outside and try this.

Hi gmarleau

an reset or an update might fix it, but if it doesnt, its still under warranty!

turn on your 5310 and locate the reset on the bottom left of your unit (small pinhole) use a paperclip to insert and depress the reset switch.

if that fails and you want to try an update, you can get the 4.72 update HERE you have to sign in and register before they will let you download anything.

to send it in for warranty repair or replacement call the number listed below.

Hours: Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST/PDT

Purchased Nuvi 200 now cant update for free?


2 years is still pretty recent for some GPS. The maps take care of all major roads before new residential areas. Contact Garmin for more clarification.

I don't know if this is much of a solution, but from what I understand from my extensive research on this product (I bought one online and have been trying to get updated maps), Magellan no longer supports this unit. I looked on their website to confirm, and on the "Scheduled Map Updates" list, the Magellan 300 has no further updates available. Apparently, this has been the case for the last few years.
