Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
While driving with a destination entered, the 700 will make a click noise and the screen will freeze with a message at the bottom "enter location". All buttons and commands are frozen. If I leave it alone for awhile, it will make the "clicking" noise and return to my destination map. The symbol at the bottom left disappears so I can't tell if it's black or not. If I touch the screen it will then allow me to enter commands. I've already reset the gps location with a CSR. Thinking it was a loss of gps signal I purchased an external antenna but haven't tried it yet. It's mounted on my dash the same place it was when it worked correctly.
Joe, have you tried the external yet? Did that fix it? This sounds like a Hard Drive problem, but I would try re-loading /reflashing nand flash before I went the hard drive route. Do you have the software?
