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 Roadmate 3045 is not getting any signal. I turn it on, and it doesn't even attempt to acquire a signal. The satellite icon in the top right-hand corner of the menu which indicates signal...


Mine actually stopped working the same day you posted this. How strange is that? I have not been able to figure out what is wrong with it. Have you figured out a solution?

My magellan 1475t shows the vehicle ~100ft behind where it actually is. Is there a fix?


if your sure you have the latest update, which you can get HERE if you dont. make sure its fully charged.

i sounds like you might be moving your car before the satellites have locked on. make sure the satellites have locked on fully before moving your car...also, sometimes a satellite will drop off, (unlock) making it impossible for the other to lock on to you exact position, hence, this is why its slightly off.

i recommend that update whether or not my advice worked.


if you need further help, please reply to this post

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.
