Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver

3 Answers

My GPS cannot locate my own position

My GPS roadmate 700 worked for almost one year and recently it stopped working. When I input and address the previous destination is still there and it will look like searching for the new address but nothing, it will look like searching for the network. Even my own position is not found. Can you please help me solve that issue. Thank you

I had the "No GPS" problem, opened the unit and sure enough the antenna cable (litte gray cable) was loose, still attached but loose, I giggle it a bit and it came loose. Took it to an electronic shop for soldering back and my unit is working again.

When my 700 does not appear to be working properly, I go into the configure screen and set the GPS current loaction to where I am,that usally corrects the problem immeadiatly.

Try GPS data reset. At user screen push the zoom out key and repeat button at the same time. Select Reset GPS data. This will reset the GPS settings. If after this you are still not getting any signal then you may have a loose RF cable inside your unit. If you feel comfortable opening up your unit and making sure the grey or black cable going from the big (main board) board to the board attached to the rear housing, then do that. Of course this is at your own risk. If you still get nothing after that, it may have something to do with your antenna, which you'll need to take off prior to opening your unit. Turn the antenna all the way out (past perpindicular to the unit) and pull straight out. make sure the connector isn't bent. Keep me updated if anything changes. _Daniel

MAGELLAN ROADMATE 700 ON THE FRITZ.


I had the same problem with myRm 700, too. Solution : connect your unit into the AC power pack . Turn it on. Then reinsert an address into the unit while plugged into the 110 volt ac wall outlet power supply. You may need to repeat this operation a few times.
Also, used mine in my 18-wheeler using a ac to dc power inverter. It seemed to work everytime. Note make sure the ac to dc inverter you by has enough dc output to feed your Gps all the juice it needs. That ac to dc inverter can be used to run other ac powererd appliances, too.

Stopped working


Your probably right about it still not working even after the 5.32 upgrade. Although it could be the software, so try resetting GPS user data. Enter into the "secret" menu by pressing the zoom out key and the repeat button while at the beginning user menu. select reset GPS data.. If it's nothing to do with software, check your antenna and make sure none of the pins inside the connection are bent.. or the RF cable inside could be gashed/cut.. bent up.. do you hear a rattle when you shake your unit?

My 700 has no GPS


Danny, First I would try resetting GPS. It has been a while since I've worked on the 700's but there is a next to the GPS Status button that shows something along the lines of resetting GPS. It will then tell you that it will take 5 min. to re-aquire a signal. Try that first. If that fails, restart your unit and at the user menu push the "-" (zoom out) key AND the "repeat" button on top. Your in the "secret" menu now. Select Reset GPS user data (maybe it doesn't say that verbatim but work with me here). Press yes to confirm then check your gps status again. Let me know how it works out. -Daniel

My Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver won't locate my position.


If out of warranty time frame, open her up and check the grey cables that you will notice right after you crack the case. Make sure the cable is un damaged and connects to the main board (the big one) to the I/O board (attached to rear housing). If no change, then try resetting GPS user data. At User Menu (after reboot), press "-" key and repeat key at the same time. select reset GPS user data and cross your fingers. -Daniel

Loss of signal


Leslie, Not updating your GPS isn't going to cause signal loss. Push the options key, go to configuration, then to diagnostics, scroll down.. select reset gps. it will say it takes 5 min. to relocate.. etc. see if that fixes it. If it doesn't fix then when you restart your unit and the user menu appears. Press "-" key and "repeat" button at the same time.. then select clear gps user data or.. user data gps... something to that nature.. Hope this works out for ya. -Dan
