Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
I have a 2008 (5 month old) Mercury Mountaineer and the in dash navigation system spins for the first 10-15 minutes of use before it settles down. Every 2 minutes it repositions to the correct place while spinning. Mercury dont have the answer!
Initially when plugging the gps in it takes about 3 minutes but only if you sit still. Always leave the gps plugged in and it will be stable and on track but if you unplug it , it will loose it's position when you move from your previous position.
This of course is assuming your cradle is not defective inside the connector which is the main problem with these units. Wiggling of the cable causes the center conductor connector to break or be intermittent.
