SOURCE: Problem with Magellan GPS 315

I own Two Magellan 315. They both have failed in exactly the same way as yours, will not lock on too a satillite. I have concluded that this is their design life and that is the end. I did post one to the Magillan repair centre in France but that disappeared. I have replaced the two of them from EBay and will see how I get on with those

I was able to open a 315 by starting at the bottom with a screw-driver placed in the gap between either of the two cross ridges and twisting the screw-driver.This opened a gap at the bottom which I followed around the perimeter with the screw-driver until both halves seperated fairly easily.

SOURCE: MAGELLAN GPS 315, LCD Not filling out completely

I just got my GPS 315 open, thought it may have zebra connectors.
You will break the wires from the data connector in opening this beast. There is a photo on this site showing the wiring.
It is a wired panel the connections to the LCD uses some super adhesive that gives way after a time. It appears unrepairable.
I have two early 7 inch LCD TVs with the same problem.
There is NO markings as to part number or manufacture so the panel
will be unavailable. So I would suggest to use it as is or use it with an early laptop with a serial com port.

Case cracking Magellan 315


The only method I have found is with a dremmel tool and cut it open along the original split line.

All the electronics are clear of the case mid line. The case is a bit less than 3mm thick.

The antenna is closest with maybe a 2 mm clearance all round and the various (6) rear conector wires (on the right looking from the back) have a similar clearance but sit below and away when the unit is assembled. Cheers

Magellan 315 won't find satellites.


I have one of these units and it too is experiencing the same problem. I have talked to one geocacher and he thinks it could be the connection to the antennae that is now broken. He has a different Magellan unit and he had to fix the antennae connection. I was going to try that on my unit, but I need to figure out how to open it. Hopefully this helps. If I find out more I will let you know. Greg
