Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
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
