I think your best bet would be to initialize the unit again. To save time (and battery power if you haven't got an auxiliary power cable) let the GPS know where it is on the planet, in additon to the current date and time)

Hope this helps.

Do you have the WAAS option checked off in the options menu? If you "WAAS required" checked off, your unit will have a hard time ever aquiring your position.

I have an old Magellan Meridian XL that has the power cable missing and I cannot locate another cable. Anyone know the pin configuration so I can make up a cable ? Power only, no data in and out.

Hi yakabofski!

There are TWO configurations of the pins with these units. We have the FIVE-pin config and the assignments are as follows:

Top pin- 12v
Bottom pin- ground.

Hope this helps.

My Magellan Meridian Gold GPS works with a car cradle but does not power up with its own battery power. How can I fix my receiver to work with its batteries?

You may find the problem is with the connections from the battery to the circuit board.
Take the back off and check the battery connectors where they contact the board. They may need cleaning or re aligning

Magellan Meridian Gold

I unscrewed the 6 screws holding the back to the Meridian Gold unit and looked at the contacts. I noticed that one of the curved prongs that makes contact from the battery to the unit was bent low so I knew it was not making contact and preventing the unit from working. So I very gently took the small screwdriver and pulled it out a bit so that contact was the same height as the other. Screwed the back back on, reinstalled the batteries, presto - works like a charm now. Anyone can do it.

Now I need someone to tell me what alternative GPS map packages giv e the most bang for the buck as my Map Send CDs were accidently thrown out by a well meaning person cleaning up my desk....
