Replace the or recharge the battery to capacity and see if that helps usually low battery, incorrecty baud rate or port out cause no satellite connection, unless you are under a thick concrete or tin roof. take it outside and show it some sky and see if that help

Magellan roadmate 1430 calibration is wrong


try a hard reset again using a paper clip, insert it in the little pin hole on the side to reset the unit. if that fails, get the 3.12 update (if you havent already) off the magellan site..you must register the unit with magellan before you can download the update.
