Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver

2 Answers

My Mgellan 700 was working fine for many years.

Now it takes about 45 minutes to warm up. After that everything works fine until I power it off and again turn it on. Again I have to wait a long warm up time. The car temperature is about 70 Fh. Before I did not have any warm up time. How can I trouble shoot it?

Ok56,

Thanks for using Fixya 1st of all.

This problem has surfaced MANY times. It has been solved by numerous solutions. Without replacing the circuit board behind the keypad or the LCD I do NOT know a way to solve this. There never was a definite solution that remedies this. Possibly unplugging/replugging the ribbon cable from the LCD. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance. Let me know if anything changes.

-Daniel

Can I get a GPS signal in Malta? I have a Tom Tom 700


Route will not plan until the GPS is locked.
Soft reset on the button underneath for 30 seconds will reset the GPS receiver on a 700.
Then wait upto 4 minutes for a refreshed lock after power up

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..

Won't turn on


One of the wires in your power cord could be broken. If you have the a/c adapter, see if you can power up with that. If you know someone else with a working Magellan, you could borrow his cord to test your unit.

If not, check the car adapter with a continuity tester. Put one tester probe on one of the side springs of the car plug and the other probe on the outside metal of the GPS plug. If that shows continuity, place one tester probe on the end tip of the car plug and the other inside the the GPS plug.

If either of those do not show continuity, first take apart the auto side of the cord. Check the fuse and the wire to contact solder joints. If they seem okay, carefully cut back the molded plastic from the GPS end and examine the wire to solder joints. If any are broken, replace the cord or resolder the joints.

at the user menu press the "-" zoom out key the "+" zoom in key and the repeat button which is on top of your unit. Once your in the "hidden" menu, select reset user data.. your unit will reset and everything will be clean. If your trying to delete specific addresses I would use software to sync up and explore your MRM's files.

Navman icn510 gps reciever problem


How long are you waiting and are you moving while it is trying to acquire signal? These receivers are using older circuitry that may take up to 20 minutes to first acquire a signal from a cold start. If you are moving it may take longer!!! The good news is that after you have initially acquired a location, if you turn the unit off it will only take a minute or so to reacquire after it has "warmed" up.

Doesnt stay powered-up


Small IC chip on the back of your I/O board is losing connection. Look at my posts to other users with the same type problem. -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
