SOURCE: change the time on the
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

Man, I DO commiserate with you on that one, but did you specify to them that the battery should be checked?
as that is probably your problem, now that I know the unit has been checked and the worst possible outcome
from your buying an extra battery is that you will HAVE AN EXTRA BATTERY for those times when you need
So, make sure you try a brand new battery and if that solves your problem, then buy several.

Unfortunately even if you do find a card it will not work with your unit because the cards have to be for that unit.If it is from another unit the codes will not allow it to work. The only option I know of is to purchase your map for that unit and put it on a sd card
