    My Magellan 310 is alson not picking up satalites and the time is speeding along (half an hour in a few seconds!) I have tried pressing right arrow and power at the same time but still not working. Any one with any ideas?

    I have the same problem. After not having used ithe unit for about a year the time is now leaping ahead and the unit doesn't function properly at all. I have tried the: "press start, hold right arrow" procedure without success. I have tried switching on and holding all the different buttons individually but nothing seems to work. Has anyone resloved this problem and if so how please?

    My Magellan 310 will only accept a max. of two satellites though up to seven small indicator rings will show. Hence I am unable to get an initial position fix.Have tried all the suggestions so far given ( i.e. right arrow and power buttons, bottom rt corner of screen and power button but all I get is the initial start-up screen. Any more ideas?

    I have a Magellan Gps 310 that is several years old. I
    turned it on for the first time in over a year and will not display
    correct location. The clock is also moving too fast. I have tried ez
    start and reseting the device several times with the right arrow
    power-up method. Nothing seems to fix the issue. I have had lock on to
    as many as 7 satelites after the reset yet it still will not display
    correct lat and long. Any help or suggestions would be wonderful.

    310 appears to have a timer function which automatically changes displays from the one showing the current track to the startup display or the compass

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

Thanks. Initially, my 310 showed wrong position, time and date, but correcting them resulted more mess. No satellites were found and tracking after being locked into (even 8 or more) satellites did not start at all.

Powering off by holding first pwr then right arrow button down: Yes it does work, but you actually need several (appr. 4-5)attempts and furthermore, you need to hold on pwr and right arrow down while turning it on. No extra waiting over night or anything else was needed - just the right timing when holding the buttons. After that you will be asked erase memory, YES/NO, and answering yes it will be resetting like EZSetup.

The 'right arrow / power' combination does work but it may take several attempts. Leave the GPS 'off' for an hour or so before first trying it.
I then had to leave my 310 on overnight before it eventually managed to track 3 or more satellites. So far today it has worked perfectly and has been tracking up to 6 satellites! (But I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it continues.)

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.

Everything works but the GPS. Nothing shows up


May sound stupid but make sure you are outside and give it 5 mins to track the sats. If no joy press the reset button.

Magellan wont get signal?


charge the battery fully, then set it outside in clear view of the open sky. it may take as much as 30 minutes to acquire the sats if that fails, try and leave it out longer...does it appear to try and link to ANY sats. on the map screen in the top righ t corner is a icon with bars in it, tap that and you should see it trying to acquire sats. if not, you might have other problems

Magellan 310


I Experienced the same problem the last two weeks. I read your suggestion about the right key/power button. The GPS asked me wheter I wanted to clear the memory yes or no. After "yes" i had to reenter my country and date/time. After doing this it took gps310 more than an hour to get its first fix. But it works again.
