Question about Magellan RoadMate 800 GPS Receiver
Magellan 800 roadmate
all systems seem to be ok
self diagnosos all ok
but appears not to be able to locate satellites
Make sure the battery is charged up good, then take it outside and turn it on and leave it in clear view of the open sky for up to 30 minutes to acquire the satellites especially if its been reset.
if that fails, reset the unit...turn it on, then slide the reset switch on the top of your 800 to the opposite position and once it turns off, slide the reset back to the normal position and turn it on again and take it back outside and let it in clear view of the open sky for up to 30 minutes.
if that fails..go HERE and get the update for which ever 800 model you have...you will have to sign on to the Magellan site before you can download anything.
if you need more help, just post back
