    My Magellan 700 and 760's have the same problem. Will not reset or pick up satellite signals. Sometimes takes 10-15 minutes. Can there be a problem because they were near magnets and if so can this be corrected.

I too have sometimes to wait for 20 mins before my Roadmate picks up all the satellites it needs. The problem is worse if I'm surrounded by buildings.

I have at last decided to bin the Magellan as it's been nothing but trouble and Magellan Support just don't seem to care to respond.

Am now getting a Tomtom Go series with all preloaded, maps/ traffic/ cameras - it auto updates each time it's put on its cradle attached to PC/internet.

Magellan Roadmate 1412 won't track satellites


It might mean that the signal is disrupted. Might be a software glitch. Try going outside, get a clear view of the sky. Then reboot/reset the unit. Hold the switch to the reset position or off position for 10 seconds, it will shut off. then switch it back on. It should reacquire a signal within 2-5 minutes, then it will fix on your position. If that doesn't work, try updating your software. Call Magellan Tech Support for instructions.

How do you reset a magellan roadmate 1220?


As a general rule, for Magellan RoadMate models the RESET BUTTON is on the right side inside a small hole; the use of a pointed object (tip of a pencil, a ball-pen, etc.) is required to apply pressure on this button in order to perform the RESETTING PROCEDURE.
You may also can try to hold down the POWER BUTTON for 10 seconds to power off the device; then repeat the same procedure (holding down the POWER BUTTON) for other 10 seconds to power on Magellan RoadMate.

Magellan 315 frozen


Occasionally, a unit will need to be reset. This can be due to software errors, firmware updates or simply at the command of technical support staff. A reset either will restart the unit, possibly clearing up any minor errors, or will restore the unit to the settings it was built with. There are three major Magellan units, which utilize different methods to perform this task.

Things You'll Need:
  • A thin object (such as a paper clip)

Using the stylus, tap "Main Menu" and select "View."
Tap "Settings," and select "Restore Factory Settings." You will be given the option to confirm this action. Be sure that you want to reset to the settings that the GPS was built with. This action is irreversible.
Tap "Confirm," and the unit will begin to reset.

Maestro/Roadmate GPS Units
Locate the button marked "Reset" on the left, right or bottom of the unit.
Using a thin object, such as a paper clip, depress the button for two to three seconds. The unit should reset.
If the unit does not reset, immediately press the button again and hold it for up to 10 seconds.


Tips & Warnings
  • Do not attempt to perform a factory reset on the Roadmate or Maestro GPS units by holding down both the "Reset" and "Power" buttons. This will cause the GPS unit to format its own hard drive. Doing so will erase all data, including the GPS software, from the unit.

assuming you have this in your car and not in your house, turn on your 360, after it boots, press and hold the power button for 15 seconds (do not let off the power button when it shuts off, keep holding it for 15 seconds.

once its off, press and hold the power button until it starts, then give it time to aguire the satellites.
