Question about Magellan Roadmate 760 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Freezing up My Nav is less than a year old, it has started freezing up within a minute of being turned on, at the longest. Sometimes it will immediately go to a blue/black screen of death, sometimes I get all the way to putting in a route, then it freezes solid, can't even turn it off without unplugging it. Any suggestions? Any way to fix this? All I've heard is negative, that I'll probably need to replace the unit. I've only checked the connections, unplugged and replugged, I don't know what else to try. Thanks.

Re: Freezing up

Had the same the month before warranty expired. My personal opinion is that HDD got bad sectors. Sent to local repair representative. He just reformated drive and reinstalled software.
No wonder that another 11 months later it ran into exactly the same issue.
I'd buy new HDD but there is no way to re-install OS on it.
I'm surprised that no one has done that.

Garmin nuvi 250 freezeing up

Yes you can get it fixed by sending it back to Garmin. It is probably the firmware glitching. To be honest it will cost more to fix it than to buy a new one.

What fitting is the external antenna is it mmxc?

Hi there,

I hope everybody visiting this webpage will find this answer useful.

First of all, ignore the antenna connector recommended within the RAC Sat Nav 200 manual, it's wrong.

What you need is the :

GPS Antenna 1M Length MMCX with a
180 degrees straight connector.

Make sure it's a MMCX straight connector.

Plug in the antenna and within half a minute of typing your postcode destination into the Sat Nav the reception will have been picked up.

Hope this saves everybody a lot of hassle.

GPS operation freeze up

Upgrading the system software of your GPSMAP 545s will most likely fix your freezing up problem.

I hope that helps.

Magellan Maestro 4250 freezing up

I just purchased a referb from TigerDirect and the only issue I discovered was a lockup when the unit goes to sleep. Try holding down the power button for 15 seconds then release it to cycle the unit. Then hold the power button down again for 5 second to start it back up. I had to do this for my bluetooth to work and not freeze up. Now I just turn it on and off manually and avoid having it go to sleep. I also downloaded the firmware update to 4.86, you can download it from Magellan's website. My unit works great so if that doesn't work contact Magellan and I'm sure they will have a solution.

I think Magellan makes it so if you don't update your map every year it will freeze up. Mine does the same thing and they told me to buy an update for $99 last year so I did and it worked and then after it started telling me my map was over a year old this year it started freezing up again. I don't want to pay $99 every year to keep this thing working. I wonder if Garman or Tomtom does the same thing.

Garmin c330 freezing

I am happy to say my problem seems to have been solved. I found 3 possible solutions during my search - may need to try all of them to see if it works. 1) Reset by pressing the button under the faceplate. (Did not work for me). 2) Master reset - switch off the unit and press on the right bottom corner of the LCD and switch it on. Release the power button when it powers on, while pressing on the R lower corner. This is supposed to erase all prior data. I could not master reset my unit, for whatever reason. 3) Software update: If you are a windows user you will want software version 2.4.1 as of April 3 2007. This worked for me. Thanks.
