Magellan GPS 310 accuracy completely off

A friend has just given me a Magellan GPS 310 (hand-held unit). It's a few years old, powers up OK, but shows me as approximately 200 miles from my current location. Is there anything I can do?

It's showing as exactly 53 deg N, 3 deg W but that's 2 deg off in each direction. I've set my elevation and told it the time, but I'm a bit concerned it only has a two-digit date (not that changing it makes any difference afaict). If you know how to troubleshoot or improve accuracy, please help! I'm a complete novice at such things.
