Question about Magellan GPS 310 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

When I turn it on, it is looking for satelites constantly and never locks on to one. I have done the reset numerous times. I have not used this for over a year. The batteries were removed and it was stored in my desk.

Since the batteries were removed, the unit loses its memory in 20 minutes so that the GPS now has no idea where it is on the planet or even the time and date.

SO, it likely needs to be initialized.

Here is the owner's manual, initialize procedure is on page 4.

Hopefully this'll get you back on track.
Good Luck!

Hello,

Try performing a factory reset.
Be sure to save your favorites, routes, and waypoints before doing the reset as these will be deleted.

The factory reset is done with unit OFF.
Press and hold PAGE button and ENTER button and while holding the buttons turn ON the unit.
Reset is complete.

Dell inspiron 2200 laptop - what are the 4 lights on top right of keyboard for? the first one is constantly blinking and the others are never lit up


Hi those are your keyboard and status lights

Looking at your laptop from the front the first light on your Right hand side is your scroll lock light and is only on when you press the scroll lock button (the symbol shows a lock with a little down arrow)

The light to the left hand side of that light is your caps lock light and again only turns on when you press the caps lock key (The symbol shows a lock with a A in it)

The light to the left hand side of that is your numeric keypad light (Symbol has a lock with a 9 in it), this comes on when you press the num lock key on your keybaord

Finally the last key is your hard drive light (like a cylinder), this will be flashing most of the time as you use your PC as it is constantly reading and writing data

It happens all the time to me. Only solution is to save constantly as you record because once it freezes up and says not stopped you can only unplug and plug back in then turn power on. You will lose what you were recording but nothing will be lost that you have saved.

Garmin GPS problem


I have a 276C that has the same problem. Garmin has a unit with this problem and is working on a solution. The problem is that the real time clock loses time when the unit is turned off and disconnected from a power source. As a result when you turn on the unit it thinks the satelites are in a different orbit than where they actually are. The unit will continue trying to aquire forever and not find the satelites. You have to select "New Location" from the menu and select "Autolocate" and the unit will start to look for any satelites in view. The unit should get a fix within 15 minutes. This is a very frustrating problem having to reset it every day. There is a new version of firmware (5.3). I don't know if the problem has been fixed with this release.
