No signal in two units, did reset with magellan tech service, still gets stuck in the same location and no signal


Plug it in, turn it on and let it sit out in the open. If the unit is working at all, it will eventually find and lock onto the satellites. The 760 I'm using now came from California and it took over 2 hours to lock on. When I start a trip now, I let it sit before starting to drive and it locks on in just a few minutes.

How can I get the code to unlock the European map Magellan Roadmate 760


You will need to pay Magellan for the authorization code, they are the only one that can provide you with an EU code for your Magellan 760 RoadMate. Sometimes Auto Nav 2000 Plus, Inc can also assist. They have direct connection with Magellan to assist issues with Magellan products. Good Luck

Can not lock in satellite signal


Plug it in, turn it on and let it sit out in the open. Make sure the antenna is flipped up with as much exposure to the open sky as possible in your vehicle. If the unit is working at all, it will eventually find and lock onto the satellites2.gif. The 760 I'm using now came from California and it took over 2 hours to lock on.

The Magellan 760 has been around for a few years now, and unfortunately, isn't one of the fastest units around when it comes to synchronizing to a satellite. I find with mine that the time it takes to lock onto a signal depends on several factors:
1) Having the GPS mounted in a way that allows the antenna to have a clear view upward 2) Having my vehicle in the open, so that the signal isn't impaired by adjacent buildings, overhanging trees, etc. 3) Being stationary while the GPS attempts to get a lock. It has more problems locking while moving. 4) Ensuring that the GPS is used frequently, as it loses its memory of what satellites it's synchronized with if you happen to be in a different place when you turn it on than the place you were at when you last turned it off.
Those last two points have the most affect on my GPS's performance. I find that by turning on the GPS and just parking in my driveway or parking lot for a few minutes will allow the GPS to acquire a signal in a much shorter time than if I start to drive immediately. While this will waste a bit of time on the front end, it does help you get synchronized more quickly

Magellan 760 does not find satellites


I recently i had the same issue. Open the four screws from back. remove the back cover carefully (tahe care of the attached cables).

check the atena wire connection (gray thin wire). both the ends should be seated firmly.

in my case, soldering at one end was broken. had to resolder. its working now.

Unit will not acquire the satellite signs


FYI ....My Roadmate 760 would not aquire a signal, I went to diagnostic screen and found it was detecting/tracking 0/0 satellites. Held the plugged in unit out the window and within 10 seconds was tracking 7 satellites! Turned out my 1999 Olds Silhouette Van has a anti-glare filter inside the factory windshield that blocks GPS signals.My wifes 2001 Chevy Impala also has same type filter. Check your windshield, filter is visible inside glass to within about three inches of edges of glass. Worth a look.
