SOURCE: Problem with Magellan GPS 315
I own Two Magellan 315. They both have failed in exactly the same way as yours, will not lock on too a satillite. I have concluded that this is their design life and that is the end. I did post one to the Magillan repair centre in France but that disappeared. I have replaced the two of them from EBay and will see how I get on with those

SOURCE: 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

You probably are just in a bad location where satellites are not reachable. All these units work from the same satellites and recieve them the same so it wouldn't matter what brand you have. I highly doubt that the powerlines and cell towers are effecting the transmission.

SOURCE: no longer receives GPS signal
Does this unit have an input for an external antenna? If you get/borrow another antenna you could see if it starts working. That might isolate the problem to the antenna.
