Question about GPS

1 Answer

I bought a used Magellan Roadmate 300 and it had a lot of directions saved in it. I tried to clear them off by going to user settings, then diagnostics, then repair to reformat internal memory. It completed this but would not do the ok at the end and now it comes up blank. It doesn't come up with maps or anything, what can I do to fix this? Thanks

The only option to reset the Magellan Roadmate 300, is by going to Option button, then select User Settings. Since it's no longer loading the map or you cannot do anything, what you can do is to send the device to the manufacturer, and have them reset the hardware.

Thank you and good luck!

Megellan RoadMate 300


You can find it here: http://magellan.cachefly.net/manuals/MRM_300na_en.pdf

You may also want to know that there is a MAJOR firmware update avaiable for your device.. It looks like it would make your GPS a lot faster and more accurate. You may want to take care of that update too while you're working on your device. The update can be found here: http://www.magellangps.com/support/notes.asp?supportID=288

Let me know if that helps!

Change the time on the magellan roadmate 1212?


I was in same situation with a magellan roadmate 1212. From what I can tell, the "daylight savings" is not what many of us may be accustomed to... that is, that it means that the location you are at follows daylight savings as happens with Windows or many other devices.

I bet those in Arizona never had a problem becuase they don't follow time zone... let me explain....

The daylight savings seems to state "are we currently under daylight savings time?" if we say yes (as you would normally state in your Windows computer setting (that would determine when daylight starts and stops and adjust pc time accordingly), the magellan 1212 instead will "ADD" one hour to the time stated by the Satellites regardless on whether it is summer ... or not.

So, if you happen to live in a time zone that follows "daylight savings" and you currently are under "daylight savings" time, then set it so in the "time zone".

So, there are two things you have to do:

/menu/user options/system settings/time zone/

1)Set your time zone
2)If currently under Set/unset the daylight savings set button to yes and manually move to no when not on DLS.

The explanation I found in MagellanGPS website is below, but never mentions what is the meaning (I should say effect) of the "daylight savings" button checkmark.

Magellan GPS receivers are not able to set the Time manually. In order to have the correct time set on your Magellan GPS receiver, you must set the proper time zone you are located in (ie Pacific, Central or Eastern). Once the time zone is set the exact hour and minute will display as information is received from the satellites. The following information will assist you on setting the time zone on your Magellan GPS. For Outdoor Triton series 200, 300, 400, 500, 1500 and 2000
  1. From the map screen press Menu and select View
  2. Select profiles and press Enter
  3. Select hiking and press Enter
  4. Press the Page/Go To key once and scroll down to select time zone
  5. Press Enter to select your time zone and Enter again to confirm.
  6. Press ESC repeatedly until you return to the map screen.
Note: Make sure Daylight Savings is adjusted accordingly. For Vehicle Navigation series Maestro and RoadMate 1200-1430
  1. From the map screen select Menu
  2. Select User Options
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Time Zone
Note: Make sure Daylight Savings is adjusted accordingly
