Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
I have a Magellan RoadMate 700 that has been working for a while, but it stopped getting the GPS signal. The GPS status screen always shows zeros for the Elevation and Azimuth, though the channels and frequencies cycle through. I have tried setting my GPS Location and re-initilizing the GPS (including through the 'secret screen') to no avail. I did check for a loose connection with the GPS antenna, but that seems OK. There is one wire that seems to have been pulled out, it is connected to the 'J6' connection near the GPS antenna connector, but the other side is pulled out. Could This Be The Problem??? Thanks for your help! -Josh
My magellan roadmate could not receive gps signals because the connection between the antenna and the gps had lost their connection. I fixed that by slightly bending the middle connection on the gps together slightly with two small screwdrivers and the attaching the antenna and gluing it upright with super glue so it would not move.

Josh, The grey cable that you see (sometimes it comes in a black woven cable as well) as soon as you open up your unit has to be connected to the main board in the corner. Additionally on the I/O card or GPS board (the board that's attached to the rear cover) has to be connected as well. If you see any loose cables and you find a place it fits, plug it in. So, the answer to your question is yes, that could be the problem. -Daniel
