After all the hoopla about how many GPS's weren't going to work because of the 'date thingie', I was sure our ancient and well loved Magellan Meridian Platinums were going to be toast. Here's what happened . . . \n\nThe day this "event" took place, we took our ancient Magellan GPS's outside (two of them) and attempted to fire them up. Well guess what? Neither could find any satellites. Damn! We've been using these for YEARS for Geocaching and finding our way in the desert with our ATV's and RZR's. Plus, we had a program (MapSend) that could load Topo maps from all the 48 lower states. What a magnificient program! Magellan no longer supports this wonderful program of course - and now sells Topo software by the state. Duh. More money for Magellan, of course. HOWEVER, today wifey took one of them out into the backyard and fired it up to test it - just in case. Well, low and behold, it found all the satellites it used to find, and pinpointed our location exactly. The second one works as well. So now we don't have to buy new and more expensive GPS's that have less 'mappage' and information. Not sure what happened, but this is sure cool. \n\nIs this like the bogus Y2K debacle?
