I had a Roadmate 700 with the same problem as yours, and the solution was simple: the hard drive inside had come loose!

All I did was open up the unit (4 screws on the back and a small snap-together clip on the end), and plugged the hard drive back into the cable. The cable has 2 black posts that fit into the hard drive, so you can't misalign the pins. On mine, the hard drive label was facing UP.

Once the hard drive was plugged in, I powered up, and could hear the hard drive spin up (which I hadn't heard before). The unit booted from the "Magellan" screen right into the menu almost immediately!

Hope this helps someone!!

RE: Solution 2, Where is the temperature sensor located?

Posted on May 28, 2007

Dan , my RM700 updated to 760 gives this message when I use it on a motorcycle in 80F. deg weather "temperature too low for unit to operate--turn on the heat". Works fine in a car and feels very warm to the touch. I like it alot other then I wish I could use it on my cycle. Bought a Magellan Explorist 500 to use on the cycle which works fine but I can't see the screen details very well since it is smaller and I have poor closeup vision. Would a CrossoverGPS 2500T work for well on both the cycle and car? The 2500t and the 700 have the same operating temps listed .Thanks, Rob

Hah.. yes that is a strange coincedence. When this error appears, you can try to find someone else's unit and use it for spare parts. If you can find another unit to salvage from, then first change out the LCD w/attached thermometer wires. next to change is the hard drive. which, without having the software DVD can't be completed. I'm sorry Jerome but. there's not too much you can do with this error. -Daniel

David, this message comes when the drive is too full.

Something needs to be deleted or you may consider a larger hard drive.

How to Fix Registry Errors and Optimize PC?


The Windows registry is a database that stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. The registry also provides a window into the operation of the kernel, exposing runtime information such as performance counters and currently active hardware. Registry is so important that Microsoft suggest users not to edit it, or it will affect some functions of the system even cause system crash.


The most common registry error is DLL errors. If users frequently install and uninstall software, it can also leave some wrong uninstall entries in the registry. Some anti-virus or anti-spyware will false report and destroy DLL file of some soft ware. Without DLL file, the program will pop up some strange message and can’t run. Also, Control Panel can’t remove DLL files of soft ware. If these DLL files stay in registry, this will cause system errors. Day by day, registry is full of junk files and the computer will run slowly and...

Trying to load Google chrome and I get 0xc0000a5 app wont start error


Hi There
You do not mention your Operating system, or specs of the computer. That error message is normally a RAM message indicating that part of RAM cannot be read. It might also that your virtual memory is low. Try closing alother applications then run Google Chrome again.

What tempature should my 1988 22re run


operating temp should be from 195 to 215 degrees.
colder than 195 and the fuel eccon will be low.
above 220 either there is low water flow ( plugged Radiator) or poor air flow accross radiator.
At 260 you are too hot.
a stuck closed thermostst will run hot
a stuck open thermostat will run cold at high speed (50 mph)

Error message Low on virtual memory


Virtual Memory is used by the operating system as an extension to the Random Access Memory (RAM). When the RAM does not have enough space to accommodate the entire running program, the inactive parts of that program are temporarily shifted to the Virtual Memory. These parts are then swapped back into the RAM as and when needed. If the Virtual Memory set on your system is not enough for the computer operations to run smoothly, then you will get the "Virtual Memory Is Too Low" error message.If operating system is xp then this problem can be easily overcome by increasing the Virtual Memory size.This is how you can do it by following instrutions:

  1. Click on "Start" and then click on "Control Panel.
  2. Double-click on the "System" icon in the Control Panel.
  3. Click on the "Advanced" tab in the System Properties dialog box.
  4. Click on the "Settings" button below Performance.
  5. Click on the "Advanced" tab in the Performance Options dialog box.
  6. Click on the "Change" button below Virtual memory.
  7. Click on a drive_letter below "Drive [Volume Label]" in the Virtual Memory dialog box.
  8. Click on the "Custom size" option.
  9. Click in the "Initial size (MB)" text box and type a larger value (for example, 600).
  10. Click in the "Maximum size (MB)" text box, and type a larger value (for example, 1500).
  11. Click on the "Set" button. Similarly change the Virtual Memory on other drives.
  12. Click on "OK" and then restart your computer.

Oven jjw9527aab fan runs continuously even when cool and now shows F2 alarm message


The F2 error code is due to the temp sensor is registering a tempature over 600 degrees. So the reason why the convection fan is continously running is because the ERC thinks the oven is overheated and is trying to cool it down. It is probably a bad tempature sensor or oven relay board. You will need to test the tempature sensor with an OHM meter. They usually will read 1000-1100 OHMS at room tempature. If you get an open read or a incorrect OHM reading then I would replace the tempature sensor otherwise replace the power relay board if the temp sensor is reading correct. But try unplugging the power to the oven for over 10 minutes first and then plug it back in. This will reset the ERC and might fix the problem.

Wolf wall oven error message: RTD Open


RTD is resistence tempature detector. The oven is telling you that the tempature probe circuit is open. The temapture probe may have been damaged due to the self-cleaning cycle or it could just be the wiring harness is loose. You will need to remove the tempature probe and test it with a ohm meter. The average reading should be aroun 1200 ohms at room tempature. If it is testing open or the ohm reading is way off then you will need to replace the tempature probe. If it is testing good then it could be aproblem with the control board.

With all controls off it blows hot air even on the coldest setting


try this relearn procedure.

turn key on engine not running
set controlls to: vent, tempature cold, fan on low
turn key off
disconnect battery
wait 30 seconds
reconnect battery
turn key on do not start engine
wait 90 seconds while system recalibrates
turn key off
now start the engine and recheck for a/c operation

if this dosent fix the tempature controll than you will need to replace the blend door motor
and it is behind the glove box, it is black and has one plug on it. if you have to replace it make sure
you go through the relearn procedure afterwards.

Magellan RoadMate not Working


Common problem Herbert, Unfortunately, it's a common problem that can be fixed by having several dead units lying around to take parts from. So, if you can find a unit to salvage from, then do that and change out the LCD. if you can't.. then I'm sorry Herbert but there's not much else you can do. Try reloading the software if you have the DVD. open up the unit and make sure all the cables and everything are tight/secure. Good luck.
