Change the time on the magellan roadmate 1212?

Posted by on

    I have the same problem with one BIG addition. When my time zone is set correctly, the time is wrong. The time differential is correct for Central Standard Time (-6 hours from GMT) but the time is off by one hour. So what happens now ? I could set the time zone incorrectly to match my actual time but that's just stupid... it should work the way it was designed.

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

  1. From the map screen press Menu and select View
  2. Select profiles and press Enter
  3. Select hiking and press Enter
  4. Press the Page/Go To key once and scroll down to select time zone
  5. Press Enter to select your time zone and Enter again to confirm.
  6. Press ESC repeatedly until you return to the map screen.
Note: Make sure Daylight Savings is adjusted accordingly. For Vehicle Navigation series Maestro and RoadMate 1200-1430
  1. From the map screen select Menu
  2. Select User Options
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Time Zone
Note: Make sure Daylight Savings is adjusted accordingly

Once region is set how do I change it on the megellan roadmate 1212?


By default, the Magellan RoadMate has the region setting for the lower 48 United States. When the receiver is turned on for the first time it may ask you to assign regions. Select the map region you want to use by tapping on the item from the list.
If you are travelling in other regions you will need to change the map region by using the following steps.
1 From the Main Menu, tap on the right arrow to access the second page of the Main Menu.
2 Tap on User Options.
3 Tap on Region.
4 Tap on the map region desired.
The Region option will display the map regions that are available for the Magellan RoadMate you are using.

Also if you want you can download the user manual from this website

Hope this helps
thanks

Magellan Roadmate 1212 won't stay on when unplugged


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
total portability.

So, make sure you try a brand new battery and if that solves your problem, then buy several.
