Magellan Roadmate 1412 won't track satellites

It might mean that the signal is disrupted. Might be a software glitch. Try going outside, get a clear view of the sky. Then reboot/reset the unit. Hold the switch to the reset position or off position for 10 seconds, it will shut off. then switch it back on. It should reacquire a signal within 2-5 minutes, then it will fix on your position. If that doesn't work, try updating your software. Call Magellan Tech Support for instructions.

My magellan 1424 showes a pic of a cpu with a usb cabel and a pic of the gps and that all it showes it does nothing else

The pictures that displays on your screen is a message asking you to get your system connected to a computer, then you either update the software, download a new software for it or you update your current software.
Try to reset your gps first before you connect it to a computer. To reset your gps device, you need to hold the power off/on button for about 15 seconds, then it will restart itself, then it will load normally. If it does the same thing, then you need to connect it to a computer and download a new software for your device.
I hope this information was helpful.

Turns On but not past the loading screen

Hello :

I recommend you to reset your RoadMate .

To reset your RoadMate please follow these steps :

1: Locate the button marked "Reset" on the left, right or bottom of the unit.

2: Using a thin object, such as a paper clip, depress the button for two to three seconds. The unit should reset.

3:If the unit does not reset, immediately press the button again and hold it for up to 10 seconds.

NOTE : Please don't attempt to perform a factory reset on the Roadmate or Maestro GPS units by holding down both the "Reset" and "Power" buttons. This will cause the GPS unit to format its own hard drive. Doing so will erase all data, including the GPS software, from the unit.

This solution should help with your problem . If that didn't help , then I recommend you call Magellan service for help .
