Question about Magellan GPS
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.

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.
