Magellan Roadmate 700 freezes up

I have had a Magellan Roadmate 700 for 6 years now and I love it. The problem, now, is that it tends to 'freeze' or lock up on the map screen in the middle of a trip. I usually have to unplug the power and restart and sometimes it will do it again after I'm into the trip a few miles. Is there a solution or something I can have checked. I can't believe how much cheaper they are now - I paid $1000 6 years ago! Please advise ........ thanks! Geoff (Jeff) Magnani Magnum Reproduction Services - Owner

Re: Magellan Roadmate 700 freezes up

Try resetting user data. At user menu, press "-" zoom out and repeat button at same time. select reset user data, it will reboot automatically, then check to see if it is any better. If not, hopefully the software came with your unit and you can re-install it. Good luck and let me know if you need help with the installation. Daniel

GPS turns on and goes to warning screen and freezes.

You can send your unit in to or to recover your MRM 700 unit.
This is a software issue that will require the unit to be reloaded.
Good luck

Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS does not work properly

It seems that Magellan is not good with the power connectors on their units, I believe the problem is with the power adapter plugged into the cradle. Sorry I have no information about a repair center. Usually for an absorbent amount of money, Magellan will repair.

I think Magellan makes it so if you don't update your map every year it will freeze up. Mine does the same thing and they told me to buy an update for $99 last year so I did and it worked and then after it started telling me my map was over a year old this year it started freezing up again. I don't want to pay $99 every year to keep this thing working. I wonder if Garman or Tomtom does the same thing.

My 700 gets stuck with the last map

Same problems, you have to update as far as I know and you have to update every year otherwise it will start to freeze up. It's a rip off because it's $99 a year. Does anyone know if the other GPS companies do this?

Magellan roadmate 700 gps not working

Jossie, The cable that connects your hard drive to your main board could be loose. If it's not loose, then it's your hard drive. The only thing you can do (if it's not the cable) is send it in for a new hard drive. Unsure what the costs will be but the magellan logo screen is produced from memory on the main board while anything after that is when the hard drive takes over. -Daniel
