Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
I don't have turn by turn audio.
Traveller... Do you hear ANY sounds at all from the unit. how about when you scroll the volume knob + & -? is it a faint sound? can you barely hear it? hold it close.. (make sure it's clean though) oh yea.. and this is all at your own risk.. :) audio cut out could be caused by: 1. A metallic object stuck to the back of the speaker. You would be surprised what gets in there. 2. Speaker wire solder parted, either side. 3. Sometimes a simple clearing of the user data will work. A) At user menu press "-" key, "+" zoom in key and press the repeat button on the top all at the same time. B) At the secret" " menu, select clear user data. Unit will automatically reset. 4. The speaker connections themselves could be loose or melted. If I was working on your unit, I would first make sure all the connections are clean and sturdy. if no joy, I'd swap out the speaker to check to see if it's a bad speaker. If this wasn't the problem, I would reload the software. If no, I would swap out the I/O board and test for power issues.

Not exactly true. Last spring I lost audio in my 700 while driving. Restarting it did not help. Contacting Magellan I was told first they were NOT supporting the 700 any longer and that the only thing I could do was trade it in for $100 for a newer model. I wrote a letter to the President of Magellan expressing my disappointment with such support considering I paid over $1200 when I bought it brand new 2.5 years ago. As a result, I got a call later from the Magellan repair in Texas and was told that since my unit was out of warranty they would repair my audio problem for a flat fee of $150.95, NOT $49.95. Well, I sent it in with a fee in April, 2007. Guess what? The audio stopped working once again in August. I am out of luck and my money, since the warranty on the repair was only 30 days. Isn't this something? NO MORE MAGELLAN BRAND FOR ME, that's for sure.
