Roadmate 760 Password Reset

Hello, I have just inherited a Magellan Roadmate 760 as it was in my friends garage and needed to be fixed. After repairing the power issues, the screen comes on and has three different users, all password locked. How can I reset the system to forget the passwords or get around the passwords?

Dark,

Although it has been some time now since I've worked on these, I beLIEve if you plug the unit into your computer you can explore the files and there should be a file called password or pwd or.. something along those lines.. all you have to do is delete the file and it will work. It was surprisingly easy I remember that much. If this doesn't work, play/look around with the files in the unit, and as a precaution I would copy the file over to your computer prior to deleting just in case.

How can I get the code to unlock the European map Magellan Roadmate 760


You will need to pay Magellan for the authorization code, they are the only one that can provide you with an EU code for your Magellan 760 RoadMate. Sometimes Auto Nav 2000 Plus, Inc can also assist. They have direct connection with Magellan to assist issues with Magellan products. Good Luck

Hung up magellan roadmate 760


You'll need to call customer service at 866-868-2259.

They should be able to tell you how to do an "emergency reboot". You also need to make sure you have the latest "firmware" before installing any updates.

I need an upgrade for my magellan Roadmate 760


You can download an upgrade for this unit from the Magellan website for free. Maps can be upgraded but they cost about $80, and that doesn't seem worth it to me. See if that works for you.

I recently i had the same issue. Open the four screws from back. remove the back cover carefully (tahe care of the attached cables).

check the atena wire connection (gray thin wire). both the ends should be seated firmly.

The weakness of the 760 is the cradle. Is the power wire or the cradle loose or wiggles? You may need to buy a new cradle if that is the case. They are expensive. I soldered my power wire right into the cradle and it worked fine.
