Magellan GPS 310

Hi, My gps is not working properly, i have used it before in north queensland and it worked fine. Now i live in South queensland Australia this is, and it picks up satellites ok, but wont give me a position. Also in the time part of it, it is gaining time, the seconds go for 3 or 4 seconds then it moves quickly to 5 then another 3 seconds then it goes too fast to the next second. A bit weird. It doesnt seem to be keeping time! Any ideas Cheers Scott

It could be either a hardware or a software problem. try to reset the unit. if you can reprogram firmware, try it as well. also, a friend of mine once had a similar problem, he swiched to GPS off mode, waited a couple of mins, and swiched back, a while after it got fixed. worths a shot.

I Experienced the same problem the last two weeks. I read your suggestion about the right key/power button. The GPS asked me wheter I wanted to clear the memory yes or no. After "yes" i had to reenter my country and date/time. After doing this it took gps310 more than an hour to get its first fix. But it works again.
