Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
Magellan was working 2 years very well. One week ago stoped. I still can select destination but after that signal is weak or there is no signal. I see is working, is looking for... but can not go through
Thanks for using FIXYA!
Careful when opening the case because you'll have to unplug the cable from the main board prior to opening the case completely.
The RF cable could be loose inside. Carefully open the unit as to not potentially cause any further damage. The RF cable will be gray or black, it will be the only cable connected from the main (big) board to the RF (attached to the rear housing.. I believe) board. The connectors on either side of the cable have came loose. A "pad" being lifted results in a repair process that's beyond me, this meaning you can see white as opposed to silver. It may help continuity to re-flow the solder, if everything looks fine (heating up the existing solder and adding fresh solder).
Unplug the cable on both ends and plug back in to make sure the connectors on the circuit board aren't coming loose. If soldering is out of your league then I suggest finding someone that can. Let me know what happens, and careful when opening the case because you'll have to unplug the cable from the main board prior to opening the case completely.
