Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
Starts up fine with voice but after less than a minute the voice goes away. comes back after cool off and reboot. I have the Vr 5 upgrade. Thanks for your help, Edge
Edge, Voice issues could either be software, or the most popular cause is your volume knob is dirty.. atleast, cleaning it has fixed several units. First, access the secret menu (at user screen press "-" key and the repeat button (at top of unit). scroll down to reset user data. let it shut down.. see if that fixes it. IF not, do this: (seeing that your unit IS OUT OF WARRANTY) You say you have the Vr 5 upgrade.. is this 5.14 or 5.32? Contact cleaner, or some type of rubbing alcohol would be needed during this part. Open up the unit (4 screws).. careful of static electricity.. (better if your grounded of course). Once you get it taken apart, spray the volume knob.. CAREFUL not to get any on the Hard drive, .. as a matter of fact, just take the Hard Drive off before you start spraying/pouring. get a cloth and use it like floss between the knob and the plastic piece soldered to the board. dont' be shy with the contact cleaner/alcohol. If you have any questions .. please ask before you start this. Good luck -Daniel
