Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver

Magellan Roadmate 700

My Magellan 700 has worked well for past couple of years - all of a sudden the fuze on car power conenctor blew out - I replaced it and it keeps blowing the fuses. Should I get new car connector or is it something more severe? Thanks

    Thank you - I did get a new cig connector but it still won't work - should I now try and get a new cradle and may later find that the actual unit is blown??

    With cig connector fuses not being blown - just not coming on at all. I didn't have a house connector - I did buy one and it does not come on at all but then I'm still thinking its the cradle. Or perhaps both the new cig and house connectors have the wrong plug? Bought on ebay and advertised as connectors for various models including 700.

    With the new cig connector.. are your fuses still being blown in your car? Does the unit work fine when plugged into a house outlet (ie. not your car)?

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.

All navigation units are GPS Receivers - that is - they receive satellite signals. So, no there is no difference.

Road mate 700

The flash card hole is supposed to be empty - all you need should be on the hard disk BUT the first Roadmate 700 I purchased was empty i.e. no software loaded. The second failed due to bad power connection, the third worked but was factory refurbished! what a crass organisation Magellan is!!!

Try fiddling with the power connection that goes into the cradle that the unit sits on. The power connection is ultra sensitive. BUT, if you've only just bought the unit then you are in luck - return it and get your money - back Magellan Support is extremely poor.

I am binning my Roadmate and getting a Tomtom720 Go series with maps and cameras preloaded - it auto updates when it is on its cradle attached to my PC/internet.

Bin the Magella - 4 years of problems!!!!

System works erratically

This can happen, as you probably know, when driving in areas of tall buildings - I have an extension aerial that sits on rthe car roof.

BUT BUT BUT.. these Magellan units are so poor compared to Tomtom and Magellan Support is RUBBISH!!!!!

I am at last binning my Roadmate 700 and am getting a Tomtom Go series which auto updates every time it's put on its cradle attached to my PC/internet.

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.

RoadMate 700 GPS is not working..

Does the initial Magellan screen appear? If it doesn't display anything and it's just blue... :( Normally means that something on the main board is your problem. Which, means your out of luck. What happened to it? It just suddenly stopped working? Let me know. R/
