J...

at the user menu press the "-" zoom out key the "+" zoom in key and the repeat button which is on top of your unit. Once your in the "hidden" menu, select reset user data.. your unit will reset and everything will be clean. If your trying to delete specific addresses I would use software to sync up and explore your MRM's files.

Reset


Yes, you can reset.

Access the secret " " menu and reset user data, you'd be amazed at how much that can fix. At user menu (after reset) press "-" and repeat key at the same time. select "reset user data". Also, if your having GPS problems, you can also select reset GPS data.

Post again if this doesn't work for you.

How to hard reset magellan 700


Hussam.. I believe the newest software upgrade you can get for the 700 is version 4.32 which is the same version used on the 760's. The maps are stored on the hard drive, so I do not think a reset will help but here is how it's done. 1. At the user select menu (first screen to appear after initial turn on) hold down the zoom out key (-) and the repeat button (on top of your unit). 2. Once at the "secret" menu, select reset user data. This will reset all of your personal information from the unit. All of your POI's will be deleted as well as your user name (which you can re-create of course) 3. Your unit will re-boot automatically and that's how you reset your unit. Like I said though, I do not think this will revive your maps. If you have the maps on a DVD-CD then you can reload them that way, otherwise send it to the Fort Worth, Tx repair center and they have the proper program to load data directly to the hard drive. Good luck! -Daniel

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?

Magellan 700 "freezing"


okyboky, Once you turn on your unit, the Magellan splash screen or animation is produced from the flash memory. To my experience anything past that is dependent on the hard drive. So, your unit is freezing up as soon as the user menu is displayed without any response to pressing keys or touch screen right? Have you tried (at the user menu) pressing "-" key and the repeat button (on top of unit) to enter the "secret" menu? if you can do that, then select reset user data. That seems to fix numerous problems. If you absolutely can't get past that screen, or get any type of sign of intelligence from it then your hard drive is either corrupt/damaged or you could just have a cable not secured. If the above doesn't work, and you don't plan on sending it in for repairs, then open it up and make sure the cable from the Hard drive to the main board (large board) are fastened. Of course, being grounded would be helpful in this situation and also be careful when you first open up the unit as the RF cable needs to be unplugged before seperating the two sides (front/back). Good luck and let me know how it turns out. -Daniel

No map data no hard disk


Typically I'd change out the hard drive. Your not able to access your location on the map right? or are you able to access the map at all? In your position, if your product is OUT of warranty. Open your unit up and make sure the cable going from the main board (big one) to your hard drive are tight. Other then that, try resetting user data. At the user menu (after restarting) press "-" and repeat button at the same time. Scroll down to reset user data, then see if anything changes. I'm almost positive it's your hard drive, and you can't just go out and buy one of those. So, good luck.. if nothing else you can just send it down here to Fort Worth, Tx.

Megellan Roadmate 700, touch screen not working, if it works takes too long!


Mthomas, Although I can't think of any quick fix, if you have a cd of the software version that you've installed then try re-installing that. if nothing else, access the secret " " menu and reset user data, you'd be amazed at how much that can fix at times. At user menu (after reset) press "-" and repeat key at the same time. select "reset user data". If you can get it to the touch screen calibration test, then it could respond. (eventhough it's not working otherwise) Good Luck, DanEz007

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

Frozen screen when turned on


Kevin, Hmm... it worked fine the first two times you ran it, then all of a sudden it freezes at the user screen?? I'm not sure if your able to do this, but at the user menu, try pressing the (-)zoom out key and the repeat button a the same time. -If it does bring up the "secret" menu, try clearing user data. -If you have a program that allows you to update the software, version 4.32 I'm guessing (or 5.14) then at that "secret" menu select NAND Flash Format and re-load the software. If you can't access the "secret" menu and it locks up hard at the user menu w/out any responsiveness, I would suspect the hard drive is either bad or has corrupt data. I'm not sure if you can order just the hard drive from magellan/thales/tomtom/shaw but if you can then just replace the hard drive, nand flash format (above) and re-install your software via usb. Additionally, not that it helps your problem, but atleast you would know the pwr and keypad work if this works, press Enter, Cancel and power button at the same time, as this SHOULD power off your unit. Let me know if any new symptoms/problems come up or if you need further instructions. -Daniel
