1- Signal strenght loss is a common problem, has to do with how often they refresh, whats on your dash and how good the line of sight is to the gps sattelites. Ironically the window mount that they give you can in some cases place the gps unit too far back from the window to get good clear reception.
2- You are out in the field because of the maps that you are using. Maps while mostly accurate are not exact and road changes that are made to sections of road may take years to show up in the map or might never show up. There are only two or three actual companies that do the gps survey work for the roads, and gps manufacturers like Tom Tom buy user rights to use these maps, so if a particular section of road has changed or been moved and nobody has been out to recalcute the changes then your gps will be off the mark.
Hope this information helps you out.
No Maps Found usually means the Application on your internal memory is not the latest one, or the map did not download correctly. Make sure when you select internal memory when updating your device on home, that you update the application as well. V8351 should be the latest application for your device.
Go to Garmin and download and install Garmin Express, Plug your GPS into your PC. The GPS should power on and Garmin Express should identify it and tell you of any updates. This would allow your to install new maps. You did not delete your internal memory, you deleted your internal maps. Moving the maps from internal to external memory cannot be done on your PC and have them work. They have to be installed on the SD card via Garmin Express. https://support.garmin.com/faqSearch/en-US/faq/content/b17m7lCO3R4UKUAt8x67J7
I have an extra unit. I don't have the magellan road mate manager. I would be willing to trade the whole unit if you could get me the magellan road mate manager cd. I hear there is another one that comes with it that would be great to have also. I have tried everything to get these cds but to no avail. comment here or email me at email@example.com if you are willing to do this.
I had the same problem caused by reformatting the internal memory and this is what I did which worked for me:
Make sure you remove any SD memory cards before trying this fix.
First: find the base maps (NA_BSMAP.mgi and NA_BSMAP.nlt)maps which are located in your computer in the Magellan Roadmate Manager (C:\ProgramFiles\Magellan\Magellan RoadMate Manager NA\Map\Basemaps)
Second: Connect your Roadmate with the USB cable to your computer.
Third: Plug in USB and power up your GPS. Cut and paste the two files mentioned above to your GPS (Devices with Removable Storage (example E:/). They are approximately 25 MB in size and will take a few minutes to copy.
Fourth: Unplug the USB cable and shut power off to the GPS.
Fifth: Power up the GPS and it should find the "base maps".
