Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Takes 4 ever to start up

Hi I have had this problem since my upgrade to the latest version in February 07. When I power the unit on, even in temperatures up to close to 80 degrees like today, the unit will display "Below safe operating temp...turn heater on...". This can go on for up to 20 minutes and is very frustrating. This even happens after car has been off sitting without AC and is very warm inside. Any help is apprecaited Thanks Dave

Dave, Please, stop turning your heater on and holding your unit up to the vent. This error is not a unique one, but it is one that requires parts to be replaced. The keypad board has 2 wires coming off of it and they sit right ontop of your LCD. More then likely that is what will be replaced. The only problem is, is that you can't buy individual parts from Magellan. So, ATC Logistics & Electronics (Magellan repair center) in Fort Worth, Tx would be your next move if your wanting to pay for repairs.. or just get a new one. -Daniel

Check whether the 'off timer' is set to 3 minutes or so. If not, the fault is with its main board. Contact any service technician. For more information go to http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

It has DINPUT.dll error


Dinput.dll errors usually appear when a game or other software program is started. and are caused in one way or another by an issue with Microsoft DirectX.

The dinput.dll file is one of many files contained in the DirectX software collection. Since DirectX is utilized by most Windows based games and advanced graphics programs, dinput.dll errors usually show up only when using these programs.

Solutions:

1. For Dinput.dll not found. Reinstalling Direct X should fix this.

2. Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. Chances are, upgrading to the latest version of DirectX will fix the dinput.dll not found error.

Note: Microsoft often releases updates to DirectX without updating the version number or letter so be sure to install the latest release even if your version is technically the same.

Note: The latest version of DirectX should be installed no matter if you're running Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP. The installation may include DirectX 11, DirectX 10, and DirectX 9 files, but they run side-by-side without problem on all of these operating systems.

3. Assuming the latest DirectX version from Microsoft doesn't fix the dinput.dll error you're receiving, look for a DirectX installation program on your game or application CD or DVD. Usually, if a game or other program utilizes DirectX, the software developers will include a copy of DirectX on the installation disc.

Sometimes, though not often, the DirectX version included on the disc is a better fit for the program than the latest version available online.

Uninstall the game or software program and then reinstall it again. Something might have happened to the program files that work with dinput.dll and a reinstall could do the trick.

Restore the dinput.dll file from the latest DirectX software package. If the above troubleshooting steps haven't worked to solve your dinput.dll error, try extracting the dinput.dll individually from the DirectX downloadable package.

4. Update the drivers for your video card. While it's not the most common solution, in some situations updating the drivers for the video card in your computer could correct this DirectX issue.

Here is a good link for DirectX info on how to download and install:

From my reading at the Apple support web site, it appears that you may need to download the latest version of the Airport Utility in order to get around this issue.
Additionally, Apple has just recently come up with an update to the firmware for this device.
Try downloading the latest version of the Airport Utility (Mac or Windows) and see if that doesn't resolve the issue.
After installing the latest version of the Airport Utility, try to connect to the Airport Express. If that is successful with the new version, click the "Manual Setup" button to display the "Summary" page for the Airport Express.
Next to the entry for "Version:" there should be a button to press to upgrade the firmware to the latest version (7.5.2). Perform the upgrade by following the on screen directions.
After the upgrade, again attempt to connect to the Airport Express using the Airport Utility. This should work as expected.
Before attempting to use the AirTunes (recently renamed "AirPlay"), make sure that you have the latest version of iTunes installed.

Sony Ericsson syncing problem


Hi I have some experience with this problem and found two solutions:

One is to always keep phone software version and sync software version matched. If you didnt upgrade phone version you should stick with the sync application in your original CD!
If you upgraded to the latest phone version please use the latest sync version that was available at that time! Or, even better, ask the person who upgraded your phone to recommend the best sync version.

Two is to always exit all running applications before starting to sync since some files may be marked as "in use" and the backup process will not be completed. How to do that? goto Task Manager -> Open -> More -> End All and press the back button.

Other solutions I got from an SE technician:
Remove sync software before upgrading or reinstalling it.
Try to install on a different PC.
Format the Memory Card (AFTER YOU BACK IT UP!)
Install Outlook and only then the sync app.

Hope this will help you, if not please

Airmux 200


Depending on the current rev. of software you have in your Airmux, you may have to upgrade to an interim rev. before upgrading to the latest. I have successfully upgraded some of the very oldest Airmux's dating back to 2005 with the latest software (1.750 and above) by first upgrading to version 1.300 reboot the units, then version 1.500 followed by another reboot, and then finally version 1.750 followed by another reboot. The reason for the reboots in betwen version uploads is that when you load a new version of software to an Airmux, the new version is copied into temporary flash ram. When you reboot, the Airmux sees a new (valid) version of software and will load it. Hope this solves your problem. Incidentally, you can get the software from RAD tech support.
