Question about Magellan Roadmate 760 GPS Receiver
I had the same problem. Opened up the unit but did not see any loose IC chips. I noticed that the power lead goes into the cradle so I found someone who had a 700 series roadmate and borrowed their cradle and attached my unit to it. To my surprise it worked ok. When I tried to use my cradle on his unit it would power off by itself. I also found out by checking on a few user reviews that there has been lost of problems due to the cradle. Sounds like it not designed too well.

Dave, I'm about 75% sure it's a small IC chip on the backside of the I/O board. There's 3 small SMALL.. chips in a row on the backside where the last one closest to the end of the board rubs up against the outer rear housing. If your unit's out of warranty and want to attempt to fix it yourself atleast try to ground yourself when taking this on. You'll need to re-solder the chip back on. Before undertaking this, make sure that it's not something simple such as a loose connection between the power source and your unit. -Daniel
