Question about Magellan GPS Devices
I cannot get satellite coordinates or latitude/longitude to enter. I get error message that they are incorrect. I have used the magellan triton 200 before and it worked very well. This is a new one and I can't get it to work.
I eventually solved the problem by firstly doing a restoration of default settings. This allowed me to toggle but it was between two different presentation styles of latitude and longitude. To restore the grid co-ordinates option I went to main menu, the Setup, then then toggled to location and re-selected UTM UPS as the location format.

SOURCE: latitude longitude
Create and save a waypoint for any location then update that waypoint with the lat/long you were given (just click on the lat/long and key in the new coordinates).

Mark a waypoint, and then edit the waypoint's co-ordinates. You can also create a waypoint in Mapsource and then transfer the waypoint(s).

Are you sure that you have set the latitude and longitude units correctly? Under Preferences go to Set Units, press done until you come to latitudes and longitudes. You have three choices, Degrees in decimal form, Minutes, or Minutes and Seconds. Printed maps might use any of these forms of latitude and longitude. Avation maps are usually different than ground maps. Hiking maps also use either of the three forms.

I had the same problem. Found this link
As suggested at the end of the above thread I left my unit outside for a couple of hours and it suddenly sprang into life. Now it reliably gets a fix in 2 to 3 minutes when I switch it on.
My theory is that because it is only a 2 channel unit it takes hours to acquire a fix when the memory is blank.
The manual says it will keep it's memory for a month without batteries.
So if you leave the batteries out for more than a month, or move it more than 250 miles and then switch it on expect it to take a while to first fix.
Otherwise it's a nice little unit.
