Does the initial Magellan screen appear? If it doesn't display anything and it's just blue... :( Normally means that something on the main board is your problem. Which, means your out of luck. What happened to it? It just suddenly stopped working? Let me know. R/

    Mr. Smith...

    If your unit is still under warranty I'd suggest sending it in as soon as possible. There isn't a fix for the blue screen that I know of.. We normally would have to swap out a main board in that situation, which in turn would change your serial number... ahh.. I hate not being able to help. That's just it.. if you can get your hands on someone elses... just swap out the main board.. then you should get a different error after that... which post what the error is and you'll be in a MUCH better position to fix it as opposed to the blue scrn of death..

you can get the utility HERE

Blue screen with magellan logo , this is what I see after turn on my gps receiver, I tryed to push any button but anything change on the screen, to shut it off i have to use 'enter' ,'cancel' and power...

This is the boot screen, Remove the power connection, and reinsert while you press the "Cancel" button at the same time, if done correctly, your Roadmate should continue to boot and enter the user mode.

All navigation units are GPS Receivers - that is - they receive satellite signals. So, no there is no difference.

MRM 700 won't start; screen flashes white . . . help.

stonelinton, It's not your LCD, otherwise you would have heard the sound of buttons being pushed. If your units first screen is white and there is no logo screen or any legible images, then it's your NAND flash on your main board. The first image produced upon boot is the blue magellan screen. This is produced from the NAND flash and will show it no matter if a hard drive is present or not. After the Magellan screen it pulls images from the hard drive. So, it is the mainboard and the only way to fix it is to send it to Magellan repair and they will have to put in a new mainboard then reprogram your serial number, etc.

Magellan roadmate 700 gps not working

Jossie, The cable that connects your hard drive to your main board could be loose. If it's not loose, then it's your hard drive. The only thing you can do (if it's not the cable) is send it in for a new hard drive. Unsure what the costs will be but the magellan logo screen is produced from memory on the main board while anything after that is when the hard drive takes over. -Daniel
