Temperature below safe level warning when starting GPS

When powering up my Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS, the Magellan logo screen appears. About a minute later the following message is show... 'Temperature below safe level. Take several minutes to warmup. To speed up the warmup, please turn on the heater.' I live in FL and a warmup period is not needed in the summer. After another minute or so the Magellan logo screen appears. This cycle repeats and the unit does not startup. Any tips for this behavior. Thanks

    My unit became dislodged and when I reconnected it I started getting the Temperature below safe level message. I have been unable to use it since that time and have purchased a new and improved unit. I would still like to get the old one work however.

Ahh yes the ever so elusive temp. below safe level error. lol. (sorry) Attached to the radio board are 3 wires connecting to the top of your lcd. This is where the temp is read from. I know telling you this doesn't help, just info. This problem has been fixed from swapping out radio boards (the board that's behind your keypad), additionally swapping out hard drives. I'm not sure if the unit will detect the USB but, if you can, try re-loading whichever version you have ie. 4.32/5.14. As far as end user fixes, I don't exactly have one unless you can find a scrap unit that someone doesn't want b/c it's malfunctioned as well. Good luck and I wish I could of been more help. -Dan

Had the same problem with my MRM 700 back in 2005, only 2 months after I purchased it. They changed the connector, and it worked. BUT, few months later I had the same problem again. I haven't used it anymore since then (moved to another country), now I am trying to fix it but no warranty anymore..

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.

Magellan Roadmate 700


I had a Roadmate 700 with the same problem as yours, and the solution was simple: the hard drive inside had come loose!

All I did was open up the unit (4 screws on the back and a small snap-together clip on the end), and plugged the hard drive back into the cable. The cable has 2 black posts that fit into the hard drive, so you can't misalign the pins. On mine, the hard drive label was facing UP.

Once the hard drive was plugged in, I powered up, and could hear the hard drive spin up (which I hadn't heard before). The unit booted from the "Magellan" screen right into the menu almost immediately!

Hope this helps someone!!

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

Temperature below safe level


I've fixed that error by swapping out the PCB board (or the keypad board). Which you can't very easily do that.. unless of course you have a boneyard of these lying around. Additionally, it could be the Hard Drive, this error hasn't been narrowed down to any one specific cause to my knowledge. I'll take it off your hands if your going to buy another one though. Respectfully, -Dan

RoadMate 700 GPS is not working..


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/
