Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
I found this sight when I had my first problem: My husband did an update (firmware 3.56(?)) for a different product which removed my voice/sound option.
Yesterday my brother in law tried to downgrade this to the 3.32. The download froze up so he removed all the cords. Now the GPS won't load. It freezes on the blue "Magellan" screen. Seems to hold for about 10 seconds and has a small flash (like a power off/off quickly). Any assistance would be greatly appreciated
Thanks for coming back, although I'm starting to believe I am the last resort for tech support on these models.
This screen as with computers, is the blue screen of death. Unless you can still sync up with your computer and attempt to reload 3.56. If that didn't work, I would replace the hard drive which I'm sure you don't have lying around.
You could try opening the unit up (very gently), removing the hard drive (ribbon) cable, making sure the contacts are clean and re-inserting it.. other then that sissey.. in the shop we would format HDD & re-load the software. Does your computer recognize it?
