Instead of addresses can I set the gps to highway numbers as (Route 39).


Hi yes you can but with GPS units its kinda funky for example on my TOMTOM I have to enter US route 59. On my wife's Garmin you have to enter it as Illinois state route 59 and on my moms Magellan it goes in completely different.

Most destinations and even points of interest can be found but it often takes as long as 5 minutes to figure out how to input the info.

An example for instance in my area I have looked up Fox Valley Mall but on Magellans unit it only shows up as Westfield Fox valley, I have lived here 20 years where did the Westfield come from?

Something I have done in the past is select "find intersection" and then enter a street that I know intersects with the Highway I am looking for and then check to see how the GPS recognizes it.

Hope that helps

Magellan Maestro 3100


hi mmeinzer

charge it up for a few hours, then take it outside and start your 3100, then get a paper clip and depress the reset on the left side near the bottom of your 3100 to reset it and let it restart, then wait for a while (could take up to 30 minutes after a reset) and let it acquire/lock on to the satellites. that should fix it, but if it doesnt, let me know and ill tell you what to do next.

let me know if you need more help or info

Frozen screen on Magellan RoadMate 2200T


Press the button to turn it off but hold it for about 10 seconds. Let go and then press it to turn it on. This resets it.

Magellan 310


I Experienced the same problem the last two weeks. I read your suggestion about the right key/power button. The GPS asked me wheter I wanted to clear the memory yes or no. After "yes" i had to reenter my country and date/time. After doing this it took gps310 more than an hour to get its first fix. But it works again.

Does not reset location


I too have sometimes to wait for 20 mins before my Roadmate picks up all the satellites it needs. The problem is worse if I'm surrounded by buildings.

I have at last decided to bin the Magellan as it's been nothing but trouble and Magellan Support just don't seem to care to respond.

Am now getting a Tomtom Go series with all preloaded, maps/ traffic/ cameras - it auto updates each time it's put on its cradle attached to PC/internet.

"NO POS"


Have you gone through the "Initialize" process again? If the memory has been cleared you will need to re-initialize. Refer to page 4 of your manual. Power On > Select Language > "ENTER" > INITIALIZE screen > "ENTER" > Select Region > "ENTER" > Select Area > "ENTER" > Enter Elevation > "ENTER" (if you don't know elevation, press enter) > Enter Time > "ENTER" > Enter Date > "ENTER"
