Magellan Roadmate 700

I have two Magellan Roadmate 700's. One is V5 and the other is v3. My Version 5 has some audio problems that is why I purchased the second one. Is there anyway I can copy the harddrive from the V5 onto my computer and then copy the files into the Version 3? Thanks Patricia

All navigation units are GPS Receivers - that is - they receive satellite signals. So, no there is no difference.

Freezes at street name screen

Yes - bin the Magellan - I have a Roadmate 700 and just bought the updates but to get cameras loaded is a major hassle and Mag Support just do not respond... what a waste of money my Magellan has been, cost over £800!

Am now buying a Tomtom 720T with cameras preloaded - it does an auto update each time yu sit the unit in a cradle attached to your PC.

I plugged the USB calble in and started the download again and it worked out for me just fine. I hope this works for you also. Good Luck

Road mate 700

The flash card hole is supposed to be empty - all you need should be on the hard disk BUT the first Roadmate 700 I purchased was empty i.e. no software loaded. The second failed due to bad power connection, the third worked but was factory refurbished! what a crass organisation Magellan is!!!

Try fiddling with the power connection that goes into the cradle that the unit sits on. The power connection is ultra sensitive. BUT, if you've only just bought the unit then you are in luck - return it and get your money - back Magellan Support is extremely poor.

I am binning my Roadmate and getting a Tomtom720 Go series with maps and cameras preloaded - it auto updates when it is on its cradle attached to my PC/internet.

Bin the Magella - 4 years of problems!!!!

Magellan Roadmate 700 does not power on

Hello, Rafster! Cigarette lighter plug problems are not uncommon, and - hopefully - this is the source of your problem. Because the green LED on your plug is lit, it would suggest that the FUSE inside is okay. Still, it's worth checking! The plug is easy to open, and the fuse easy to inspect/replace. IF the fuse is okay, the cord itself or the plug end that attaches to your Roadmate could be damaged. In order to determine this, you would have to check for voltage at the output end. But, you'd need a circuit tester and a wee bit of electronics knowledge to test it. If you don't have access to a tester, then the easiest test is to simply purchase a NEW cigarette lighter cord. You can get them at most retail discount stores (BestBuy; Circuit City; WalMart; etc.); RadioShack; or directly from Magellan. They're generally less than $10.00!
