Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Magelllan GPS Good morning. On my Magellon GPS (that I plug into the cigarette lighter in car) I plug it in and it comes on for a minute then shuts off. I wiggle the cable at the magellon end and it comes on for a second. I went to radio shack and got a new cord, same thing, use my house cord and same thing. The little pronge in the unit does not feel loose. Any suggestions? Thanks, Scott

    Thank you, I ordered a new craddle on line and "hope" this does the trick. Every place currently has the cradle on back order and will take a few weeks to see if it works.

Sounds like the pronge on the unit might have come loose from the print, or the pronge is damaged internally. It might still feel like it's properly attached, though. I've steen the same problem of several other types of electronics. (Laptops, electronic pianos and so on) I'de get an electronics serviceman to check it; it's probably a bad connaction in the pronge or from the pronge to the circuit board.

Most cigarette lighter circuits can handle up to 20 amps of current draw. Go over that and bye bye fuse...The lighter itself will draw 10 amps when it creates a direct short to heat up. As you can see. a 5amp is useless.

When using wire in car, Garmin won't turn on, it starts, shows a low battery sign and shuts down. Was working fine on recent trip. It seems no power is reaching GPS. Nuvi 765T


Most likely the fuse in the charger plug has blown. The plug that goes into the cigarette lighter socket has a ring near the end. On most chargers it's silver but some of them are black. If you unscrew this ring the plug comes apart. Be careful not to lose any parts. You'll see the fuse in there. Replace it and it should be ok.
The other possibility is that the cigarette lighter socket is not working. You can check that easily enough by trying something else in it.

GPS plug do not fit in car cigarette lighter


Buy a adapter for your cigarette lighter socket that has multiple sockets with one that will fit the Garmin adapter.

Unit (tom tom 1xl) turning off


One hour is about the time the unit will run without a power source.

You need to check that the cigarette lighter is working. Check the car fuse.

Check the fuse (one of the six bumps) on the cigarette lighter plug has not blown.

Is the cigarette lighter / Tom Tom lead damaged in any way?

Auto shut down screen does appear when ignition is turned off


This is telling me that your cigarette lighter socket has +12VDC applied to it all the time EVEN when the ignition is turned OFF. This is not the fault of your Nuvi. On some cars, like Hondas, the cigarette lighter socket powers off when your ignition is turned off.

If you want it to turn off with the ignition, then you will have to power it from a +12VDC source that is controlled by the ignition.

I can't charge my GPS while I am in the car


Verify that the car cigarette lighter outlet is working. Do you have something that you could plug into the lighter like a light?

With the car running plug the Garmin into the cigarette lighter outlet. Does it come on without pushing the ON button? If the answer is no then there is either a problem with the cable or the cigarette lighter outlet. It should come on by itself if the lighter is working. Also are you using Garmin cables and DC adapter?
